KEY GAME INFORMATION
LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL was every bit an MVP-caliber player in his first year in L.A. They should monitor his minutes late in the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. . . His Achilles is on schedule to be healed by December, and CHAUNCEY BILLUPS will start once he's healthy. He's likely to lose athleticism, and his leash could be short if he shoots as poorly as he did last year . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD steps in to lead the second unit. We'll see how quickly his inefficient, shoot-first ways grow stale . . . ERIC BLEDSOE was a stud in the playoffs. He can't play extended minutes alongside Paul, but coach Vinny Del Negro knows he has to get Bledsoe on the floor . . . WILLIE GREEN provides capable depth, but he's on the outside looking in at the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN's knee injury likely isn't serious enough to linger into the season. He's starting to develop some post moves to go along with his dunks . . . CARON BUTLER played hurt for most of last year, but still did enough to nail down a starting job for this season . . . LAMAR ODOM moped his way back to L.A. Don't be surprised if he has a strong bounce-back year, especially considering he'll be the Clippers' best defensive big . . . GRANT HILL could see some starts, but more likely the 40-year-old is pegged for limited minutes . . . MATT BARNES will replace Hill once he injures himself again . . . RONNY TURIAF will provide some of the toughness they lost when Reggie Evans left . . . TREY THOMPKINS will continue to languish on the bench, especially after sitting out the preseason with a knee injury. CENTERS: He can block shots and rebound, but at this point DeANDRE JORDAN is just too much of a defensive liability in space to play 30-plus minutes. That's why the Clippers will often pair Lamar Odom with Blake Griffin in the frontcourt . . . RYAN HOLLINS can also defend the basket and has six fouls to give.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: MARCUS THORNTON is the only one guaranteed a consistent role on the perimeter . . . ISAIAH THOMAS was the story of the second half for the Kings. He can fill up the box score, but at 5-foot-9 (at best) he's too much of a defensive liability and not a point guard . . . AARON BROOKS is the most talented guard on this team. He's had attitude problems in the past, but he could, and should, lead this team . . . Now that he remained in Sacto, TYREKE EVANS will be playing off the ball at the three against his wishes . . . The Kings will keep on trying to unload JOHN SALMONS, who's not a useful NBA player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE should have a role off the bench, but his ball-handling is not where it has to be for an NBA point guard . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA's chance seems to have passed him by. FORWARDS: THOMAS ROBINSON should emerge as a starter early in his rookie year. He has his flaws on both ends of the floor, but he brings energy and doesn't need a lot of touches to get his points . . . Even if Robinson knocks him to the bench, JASON THOMPSON should play the five at times and see close to starter's minutes . . . JAMES JOHNSON should also play big minutes soon considering his ability to make positive contributions without a lot of touches . . . CHUCK HAYES should continue to play second-unit minutes as a glue guy . . . TRAVIS OUTLAW has regressed to the point that he's lucky to have a roster spot . . . TYLER HONEYCUTT has an intriguing skill set as a defensive-minded point forward, but he's likely ticketed for the D-League again. CENTERS: DeMARCUS COUSINS came on strong late last season. There's no doubt he has All-Star potential, but between his awful shot selection and occasional attitude problems, he just hasn't lived up to his potential. After Team USA passed on him this summer because of reported maturity problems, he might still not get it.

*Clippers-Kings Preview* ========================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Los Angeles (46-21) at Sacramento (23-44), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Los Angeles Clippers have 15 contests remaining to hone their game before attempting a run through the expectedly rigorous Western Conference playoffs.

They're also aware even teams like the woeful Sacramento Kings will be looking to raise their level of play down the stretch.

Los Angeles seeks a sixth victory in seven road games Tuesday night by earning a sixth straight win over Sacramento.

The Clippers (46-21) hold a slim lead over Memphis and Denver for the West's third seed and are coming off a 93-80 win over New York on Sunday to conclude a three-game homestand.

Chris Paul, averaging 21.3 points and 10.3 assists over his last three games, said the Clippers need to pick things up down the stretch if they hope to appear in the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.

Los Angeles has split its last six games, with losses coming to Oklahoma City, Denver and Memphis.

"We haven't been playing the style that we want to play," Paul said. "We can get better, so it's important for us to focus on these last 15 games."

Blake Griffin had 12 points and 12 rebounds Sunday, including a highlight-reel one-handed dunk on a lob from Paul, and doesn't believe the Clippers will have any easy games going forward despite a relatively weak upcoming schedule.

After facing the Kings (23-44), Los Angeles hosts Philadelphia and Brooklyn before visiting Dallas and New Orleans. Only the Nets are over .500.

"You want to be playing not just for the seeding, but to be ready going into the playoffs," Griffin said. "We need to be dialed in for every single game, no matter who we're playing."

Though Sacramento is allowing an NBA-worst 104.9 points per game - including an average of 109.4 over its last 12 - coach Keith Smart has been pleased with the team's play of late.

Despite missing leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings shot 54.2 percent and routed Chicago 121-79 on Wednesday before playing competitively in Sunday's 113-102 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. They combined for just 11 turnovers in those games.

Isaiah Thomas had 26 points, six assists and committed only one turnover Sunday. The point guard is averaging 22.3 points over his last four games - 9.0 better than his season average - and hasn't had more than two giveaways in any of his last 11, good for a 3.56 assist-to-turnover ratio.

"He's learning how to be a lead guard and how to manage a basketball game," Smart said.

With Cousins' status uncertain for Tuesday, Patrick Patterson may see increased minutes again. He's totaled 36 points on 15-of-19 shooting (78.9 percent) with 14 rebounds in starting the last two after coming off the bench in his first nine games since being acquired from Houston.

Patterson also has hit 9 of 15 from 3-point range since joining the Kings.

"He's coming along at the right pace," Smart said. "He has a gift to shoot the ball; all he has to do is learn how to get space to get the shot off. He's been very good for our team and he's going to be a good pro for us."

Thomas shot only 4 of 13 from the field while Paul finished with 24 points and 13 assists in Los Angeles' 97-85 home win Dec. 21 in the most recent meeting.

The Kings, averaging 112.8 points over their last 10, have scored only 89.0 points per game during their five-game skid versus the Clippers.
