BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS is healthy and got a much-improved supporting cast to work with. He could re-enter the NBA's best point guard discussion . . . JOE JOHNSON won't have the ballin his hands as much as he used to in Atlanta. It might give him a chance to concentrate on regaining his stroke as one of the NBA's best shooters . . . MARSHON BROOKS will look to settle in as a high-scoring sixth man. He'll be trade bait for most of the season . . . After a disastrous year in Chicago, C.J. WATSON will be asked to spell Williams for a few minutes a night . . . KEITH BOGANS is still kicking around as a second unit glue guy . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR is an at-times out-of-control combo guard, but the rookie could threaten Watson's role at some point. FORWARDS: KRIS HUMPHRIES' contract was structured to make him easier to trade. He'll rebound and get his put-backs, and the Nets will likely showcase him a bit . . . GERALD WALLACE is slowing down, and now that he's signed his last big NBA contract he might not have much incentive to live up to his 'Crash' nickname. Brooklyn has no choice but to give him heavy minutes considering their investment . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC is a veteran stretch four. Consider him a penniless man's Channing Frye . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA played himself into a roster spot this summer. He's a mediocre athlete, but a cagey scorer with a high basketball IQ . . . JOSH CHILDRESS and JERRY STACKHOUSE were added in September for depth . . . REGGIE EVANS will flop unconvincingly, punch opponents in the jewels and bring other 'tough guy' intangibles. CENTERS: BROOK LOPEZ had been remarkably durable before last year's foot injury, and he should be fully healed by the start of training camp. He's gifted offensively, but will continue to grab relatively few rebounds and generally get fried defensively. He's also a candidate to be traded midseason if another franchise can stomach his max contract . . . As insurance, former Wizards big man ANDRAY BLATCHE was brought in. He could be the team's best interior defender, able to play either the four or five spot.
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.

*Nets-Clippers Preview* =======================


Brooklyn (40-28) at Los Angeles (47-22), 10:30 p.m. EDT

Following one of their worst defensive games of the season, the Los Angeles Clippers put together perhaps their best performance in their last contest.

They may face a stiffer challenge trying to contain the Brooklyn Nets, who haven't had any trouble scoring so far on their road trip.

The Pacific Division-leading Clippers will try to claim back-to-back victories for the first time this month and beat the Nets for the eighth time in nine home games on Saturday night.

After matching a season high for points given up in regulation in a 116-101 loss at Sacramento on Tuesday, Los Angeles (47-22) tightened things up in a big way in a 101-72 victory over Philadelphia on Wednesday.

The Clippers allowed their lowest point total of the season, finished with 13 steals and forced 19 turnovers that led to 24 points in the team's fourth win in five home games.

"You got to stay calm and fight our way back in and we did that," forward Blake Griffin said. "We had a big letdown (against the Kings) so to have a bounceback like this in a back-to-back, it's a good win."

Now Los Angeles will have to find a way to contain a Brooklyn team that has averaged 116.0 points on 52.3 percent shooting in its two victories to kick off an eight-game trip. The Nets (40-28) outscored Dallas 91-64 after the first quarter Wednesday en route to a 113-96 win.

Brooklyn, which is right on New York's heels for the Atlantic Division lead, clinched a playoff berth with Denver's win over the 76ers on Thursday.

The Nets have been playing well on the road, winning seven of nine to move within two victories of the single-season franchise record of 20. Deron Williams and Brook Lopez combined for 69 points on 28-of-47 shooting on Wednesday and the Nets shot better than 50.0 percent for the third time in four games.

"When you're feeling good and feel like you can't miss, it's a good feeling," said Williams, who scored 31 in each of the first two games of the trip.

Williams and the Nets' backcourt may catch a break Saturday. Eric Bledsoe (calf) has missed the Clippers' last five games while Chauncey Billups (hamstring) sat out Wednesday's win, and both are questionable to return against Brooklyn.

Lopez finished with a season-high 38 points on 15-of-22 shooting on Wednesday and had a team-high 26 in an 86-76 home win over the Clippers on Nov. 23.

He's averaged 24.7 points over his last three games in this series.

Brooklyn stifled the high-scoring Clippers in the first meeting, holding them to 40.3 percent shooting - including 4 of 17 from 3-point range - and 29 points in the second half.

The Nets' defense has also been a key on the road lately, as they've allowed just 88.4 points over their last five away from Brooklyn.

Chris Paul has scored just 12.2 per game in his last five against Brooklyn, but Griffin has averaged 22.0 points and 12.0 rebounds in his last four in this series. Griffin has 23 and 14 in the Nets' last visit on Jan. 16, 2012, a 101-91 Los Angeles win that marked its seventh in the last eight meetings at Staples.

Despite its struggles in Los Angeles, Brooklyn has won five of the last six meetings overall.
