DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON has emerged as the closest thing to a No. 1 option on this team, and despite his size, he's proven capable of playing full-time minutes. He'll continue to post big numbers in an up-tempo system that suits him perfectly . . . ANDRE MILLER will both back up Lawson and share the court with him at times (though Andre Iguodala figures to play a lot of two this season). The steady veteran is one of the league's most underrated sixth men . . . It's a bit surprising that EVAN FOURNIER is making the jump to the NBA this year. His size and skill combo will be nice on the wing one day, but he's unlikely to contribute this year . . . JULYAN STONE will be out until January after offseason hip surgery, but he should be Lawson's main backup upon his return. FORWARDS: DANILO GALLINARI is their most complete offensive player. If healthy, he's capable of being a 20-PPG scorer . . . ANDRE IGUODALA should enjoy the much faster pace Denver plays at. He'll see full-time minutes between both wing spots . . . KENNETH FARIED isn't a skilled big, but he's a high-energy guy who can get his own points off offensive rebounds . . . WILSON CHANDLER could end up leading their second unit in minutes and points . . . COREY BREWER is a front office favorite. He'll stay in the rotation as a defensive presence/glue guy . . . JORDAN HAMILTON could break into the rotation. He's one-dimensional, but has the offensive skills . . . Denver will try to solve the ANTHONY RANDOLPH riddle. Don't expect it to happen this year. CENTERS: Denver is all-in on internet punchline JaVALE McGEE. They'll give the athletic 7-footer every chance to become the star they think he can be. Whether the flaky McGee can capitalize is questionable . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is one of the NBA's best screeners, but his touches will be limited . . . KOSTA KOUFOS has quietly developed into a usable rotation player, but he might be squeezed out of minutes.
NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: This offense will belong to ERIC GORDON. He'll get over the fact that the Hornets matched his offer from Phoenix, and as long as his surgically-repaired knee holds up, he's one of the most complete young scorers in the NBA . . . The Hornets reached for AUSTIN RIVERS with the 10th pick because Monty Williams wants to coach him and thinks he can be an NBA point guard. Rivers has the handle, but his athleticism is ordinary and, more importantly, he has never shown a PG mentality at any level . . . GREIVIS VASQUEZ is the closest thing to a true point guard on this roster. He'll see solid minutes assuming Rivers' adjustment is a tough one . . . Well-rounded ROGER MASON JR. will also provide point guard depth . . . XAVIER HENRY hasn't lived up to his reputation as a shooter, but the Hornets can be patient with him . . . Rookie BRIAN ROBERTS has had a strong enough preseason to likely earn a roster spot. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS should step right in as a starter. His offensive game is further along than he gets credit for, and on the defensive end he's an absolute force from the basket out to the perimeter . . . He'll probably miss having Dwight Howard drawing in defenses, but RYAN ANDERSON has always been a very good three-point shooter. He and Davis are unique enough talents to share the court even if they're both power forwards . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU made some strides on the defensive end late last season, which is what will get him minutes under Williams. He's underwhelming on the offensive end . . . If HAKIM WARRICK couldn't succeed as Steve Nash's pick-and-roll partner, it seems unlikely he'll ever help in New Orleans . . . Rookie DARIUS MILLER is looking to establish some kind of role with the team . . . LANCE THOMAS is doubtful to earn a salary to pay off his jewelry debts. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ has always had the ability to protect the rim and does a decent job in space. Look for him to end up grabbing the bulk of minutes in the middle . . . JASON SMITH gives the Hornets a more offensive-minded option off the bench.

*Nuggets-Hornets Preview* =========================


Denver (49-22) at New Orleans (24-46), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Denver Nuggets are on the verge of their longest win streak in franchise history, but coach George Karl hasn't been pleased with his team's recent efforts.

After a pair of close calls, the Nuggets should get Ty Lawson and Wilson Chandler back as they try to make history Monday night when they visit the New Orleans Hornets.

Denver (49-22) matched its 1969-70 ABA team's record of 15 straight wins Saturday by holding on for a 101-95 victory over Sacramento. But after leading by 15 late in the second quarter, the Nuggets trailed entering the final period before outscoring the visitors 31-24.

They also needed Corey Brewer's six points in the final 10 seconds to edge Philadelphia 101-100 on Thursday.

"What I've been telling the team, telling them for three days, the next (11) games I don't want to hear about rest. I don't want to hear we're tired. I want our attitude to be the best basketball we've played all year," Karl said. "And if you don't want to do that, then I'll play somebody else. I don't want to hear about my body hurts, I'm sore.

"Everybody plays the same amount of games, and resting's not going to get us ready for the opportunities."

Danilo Gallinari had nine of his team-best 19 points in the fourth quarter Saturday and led six players in double figures. The Nuggets were playing a second straight game without Lawson (right heel) and Chandler (shoulder).

"The last two or three games we've been up and down," Gallinari said. "We've had some good stretches and bad stretches, probably because we're relaxed after all these wins we've had."

Lawson, who has averaged 21.8 points in his last 18 games, and Chandler are listed as probable for Monday's game. Chandler has scored at least 23 points four times during Denver's winning streak.

Lawson had 21 points and Andre Iguodala scored a team-best 24 in the most recent matchup with New Orleans, a 113-98 home victory Feb. 1. Iguodala and Lawson combined for 40 in a 102-84 home win over the Hornets on Nov. 25.

Denver will also be trying to match its franchise-best seven-game road win streak from Nov. 28-Dec. 15, 1975, its final season in the ABA. Though the Hornets (24-46) are 14th in the Western Conference, they're also riding their first win streak since the All-Star break.

After losing 12 of 15, New Orleans beat two teams in playoff position - Boston and Memphis - for those victories. Robin Lopez had 23 points, including four in the final 1:11, in a 90-83 win over the Grizzlies on Friday.

"When you have a guy like Robin Lopez, the way he played tonight, it's huge. If he does that consistently, I think we can be a different team for sure," guard Greivis Vasquez said of Lopez, who totaled eight points in his previous two games.

The Hornets had lost six of nine at home before those back-to-back home victories, but they prevailed 94-92 in the most recent visit from Denver on April 4 when Eric Gordon hit two free throws in the final seconds.
