ORLANDO: GUARDS: With Dwight Howard gone, this becomes JAMEER NELSON's team on the offensive end. Injuries slowed him a year ago, but he still does a nice job creating his own scoring chances . . . ARRON AFFLALO will provide some much-needed defense on the perimeter, a huge team weakness that will be exploited in the post-Howard era. He'll be a No. 2 or 3 option on the offensive end as well . . . J.J. REDICK has a chance for a bigger role in what should be a transitional year in Orlando. He's no more of a defensive liability than Nelson . . . CHRISTIAN EYENGA was a throw-in during the Dwight Howard trade and defends well enough to earn a roster spot . . . ISHMAEL SMITH will back up Nelson once he returns from a shoulder injury . . . E'TWAUN MOORE has played well enough in the preseason to spell Nelson too. FORWARDS: HEDO TURKOGLU still has some value as a point forward, though his minutes could shrink as Orlando rebuilds . . . GLEN DAVIS shined in Howard's absence last year. He's inefficient, but aggressive and willing to throw his weight around . . . Keep an eye on ANDREW NICHOLSON; the rookie is a crafty scorer who can shoot away from the basket . . . QUENTIN RICHARDSON will chug along as an injury-prone, three-point specialist . . . AL HARRINGTON is coming off a couple knee surgeries and may not have much left in the tank . . . MOE HARKLESS is athletic, versatile, and could get a long look in the second half of the year . . . GUSTAVO AYON is a capable big body who can play some center . . . JUSTIN HARPER will be buried on the bench . . . JOSH McROBERTS is not good. CENTERS: Davis figures to see a lot of minutes at center, but NIKOLA VUCEVIC is a much better defensive option. He's limited offensively, but could start grabbing more minutes in the middle as the year goes on . . . KYLE O'QUINN is a big body who can score around the basket. He has a rough transition ahead of him as an average athlete from a small school.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK can do whatever he wants inside the arc and will continue to be a shoot-first point guard . . . JAMES HARDEN will likely keep coming off the bench, but he'll also keep playing starter's minutes . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA is OKC's best perimeter defender. But his role won't become more prominent until the postseason . . . ERIC MAYNOR should be just about all the way back from his torn ACL. When healthy, he's one of the league's best backup point guards . . . DAEQUAN COOK will see limited minutes as a three-point specialist . . . REGGIE JACKSON's role will shrink to near nothing if Maynor is healthy. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT continues to do it all, and has done nothing but steadily improve each season . . . SERGE IBAKA is obviously an elite shot-blocker, but he continues to get lost in space. He's made some strides as a pick-and-roll defender, but that weakness is why he doesn't play 30 minutes per night . . . NICK COLLISON will continue to steal a lot of Ibaka's minutes because he defends the pick-and-roll better, and because he draws so many charges, he's almost as good in help situations . . . PERRY JONES III is an incredible athlete, but needs a year or two to learn the game . . . LAZAR HAYWARD is back as a 12th man. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS will continue to start, but is a part-time player. The Thunder are often better with a small lineup. While Perkins is a bruiser he is too easy to exploit as a defender in space . . . COLE ALDRICH could be ready for a slightly bigger role off the bench . . . HASHEEM THABEET is a reclamation project. There's a sliver of long-term hope, but he won't help this year.

*Magic-Thunder Preview* =======================


Orlando (18-47) at Oklahoma City (48-17), 8:00 p.m. EDT

While the Oklahoma City Thunder are near the top of the NBA in almost every offensive category, their defensive efforts are paying off, too.

The Thunder aim for a seventh consecutive home victory Friday night as they face the woeful Orlando Magic.

With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook leading the way, Oklahoma City (48-17) is second in the league in scoring with 106.5 points per game. The Thunder, though, also have proven to be a force on the defensive end, posting a 42.8 opponent field-goal percentage to rank second in the NBA.

Winners of nine of 11, the Thunder have surrendered an average of 91.8 points over their last five games - 5.2 less than their season mark.

They've been particularly stingy at home recently, as the last five opponents to visit Oklahoma City have averaged 83.4 points on 35.3 percent shooting. All of the Thunder's last 14 home games have been double-digit victories except for a Feb. 14 loss to league-best Miami.

Their defensive prowess was on full display Wednesday in a 110-87 home victory over Utah. The Thunder, who shot 53.6 percent and limited the Jazz to 35.0, scored 25 points off 20 turnovers and held a 48-35 rebounding edge.

"We did a good job of making plays and executing," said coach Scott Brooks, whose team has outscored opponents by an average of 23.8 points during its six-game home winning streak. "Our defense really won the game."

Oklahoma City improved to 36-1 when limiting opponents to 98 points or fewer and 35-0 when holding them below 43.5 percent from the field.

Brooks credited Kendrick Perkins with the Thunder's solid the defensive end. Though the veteran big man went scoreless with three rebounds Wednesday, Oklahoma City had a plus-25 scoring margin when he was on the floor - tops on the team. Perkins helped hold Utah leading scorer Al Jefferson to eight points on 4-of-13 shooting.

"I think if you had to give a game ball you would certainly give one to (Perkins)," Brooks said. "He was a big impact throughout the game not only on his man but anchoring our defense. ... He's been doing it all year. He takes pride in his individual defense and our team defense."

The Thunder appear primed for another good night defensively, facing a Magic team which is among the league's worst at 94.2 points per game. They've scored more than 100 just five times in their last 22.

Oklahoma City is facing Orlando (18-47) for the first time since sweeping last season's two games as Durant averaged 34.0 points. While the Magic stayed close in both contests thanks to significant contributions from Dwight Howard, they could have a hard time keeping up Friday.

Orlando is coming off an emotional 106-97 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, dropping to an NBA-worst 6-34 since Dec. 21. Jameer Nelson scored 21 points and Tobias Harris added 17 and a career-high 15 rebounds, but the Magic had no answer for Howard, who posted a season-high 39 points and 16 boards in his return to Orlando.

"We competed and gave everything that we had, but unfortunately we came up short," Nelson told the team's official website. "This was something we needed, especially our young guys going through this atmosphere."

Harris has averaged 15.6 points and 7.4 rebounds in 10 games since coming over from Milwaukee prior to the trade deadline.

The Thunder and Magic meet again next Friday in Orlando.
