CLEVELAND: GUARDS: KYRIE IRVING is the real deal, a heady playmaker and near-elite shooter. He should emerge as the NBA's next great point guard this season . . . Rookie DION WAITERS has a chance to step right into the starting lineup. He can get to the rim and generally makes good choices withthe ball. The only thing holding him back is defense after playing college ball in Syracuse's lazy zone . . . C.J. MILES will reportedly start at either the two or three spot, but he really needs to find the range on his shot again for him to stick in the starting lineup . . . Gunning combo guard DANIEL GIBSON is looking like he'll be their sixth man . . . The Cavs are still trying to figure out their second unit. JEREMY PARGO figures to be Irving's backup, but DONALD SLOAN is a better defender and could eventually pass him for this role, which doesn't mean many minutes unless Irving gets injured again. FORWARDS: TRISTAN THOMPSON is trying to add a perimeter shot to his repertoire. Don't count on him becoming David West, but he should improve offensively to go along with his rebounding and shot-blocking . . . ALONZO GEE returns as the starting small forward, excelling on the defensive end, but without a polished enough offensive game to earn 35 minutes per night . . . OMRI CASSPI was in and out of the rotation late in the year as he battled knee issues. It's getting close to make-or-break time for him . . . JON LEUER is a solid stretch four who has a real chance at a rotation spot . . . SAMARDO SAMUELS reportedly dropped some weight in his effort to find some minutes . . . LUKE WALTON is an unofficial member of the coaching staff . . . Undrafted rookie KEVIN JONES could make some noise with his work on the offensive boards . . . LUKE HARANGODY is more of a D-League talent. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO's wrist should be 100 percent, and Sideshow Anderson should be the same relentless, double-double threat he's always been . . . Rookie TYLER ZELLER is a 7-footer with some nice offensive skills -- he can knock down a jump shot in the half court, and run the floor. He'll struggle to defend in space, but made a living drawing charges at UNC, and should be able to play 20+ minutes as a rookie.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."

*Cavaliers-Hawks Preview* =========================


Cleveland (22-49) at Atlanta (41-33), 7:30 p.m. EDT

After alternating wins and losses over a nine-game stretch, the Atlanta Hawks could get on a roll against the reeling Cleveland Cavaliers.

With Al Horford's status unknown, the Hawks try to make it two in a row Monday night as they host a Cavaliers team mired in a season-worst eight-game losing streak.

Sitting percentage points behind fifth-place Chicago and 1 1/2 games in back of Brooklyn for fourth place in the Eastern Conference, Atlanta (41-33) opened a four-game homestand with Saturday's 97-88 win over Orlando. Josh Smith had 21 points and nine rebounds and Devin Harris added 17 points and six assists, but it was Ivan Johnson who stole the show.

With Zaza Pachulia out for the season and Horford sidelined for a second straight game due to a stomach illness, Johnson compiled 21 points and 10 rebounds in a career-high 34:28 off the bench.

"(Smith) has great length and athleticism," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn. "The Hawks have big, strong, physical guys that make it tough to score on them. If it's not Horford or Pachulia, then it's Ivan Johnson."

Atlanta improved to 5-0 when Johnson plays at least 28 minutes and 6-2 when he scores more than 10 points.

"He's always - since last year - when somebody has gone out of the lineup, he's been coming in and stepping up and playing big minutes for us," said Smith, averaging 20.8 points over the last six games. "This has just been the Ivan Johnson that we've grown to know."

Atlanta also got a boost from fellow reserve Shelvin Mack, who added eight points.

"Ivan was the man," coach Larry Drew said. "And Shelvin Mack is kind of like a mini-Ivan with his energy."

While the Hawks haven't posted back-to-back wins since a three-game run March 13-17, they have to like their chances Monday.

Cleveland (22-50) has been outscored by an average of 13.7 points during its skid and saw its woes continue Sunday with a 112-92 loss at last-place New Orleans.

Kyrie Irving scored 31 points in his first game back since missing eight due to a shoulder injury, but the Cavaliers struggled defensively against the Hornets, who shot 54.1 percent and held a 45-31 edge on the glass.

"We came out soft (in the second half)," said coach Byron Scott, whose team was outscored 64-43 over the last two quarters. "I did not think we came out with the same intensity that we should have. I do not know if they were just tired or whatever the case may be.

"When you're down 20 points, you cannot think to pick it up and try to come back. It just does not happen that often in this league."

The Cavaliers had dropped seven straight to the Hawks by an average of 14.6 points before taking two of three meetings this season, including a 99-83 victory Jan. 9 behind 33 points from Irving. Tristan Thompson and Tyler Zeller added 11 points apiece and combined for 26 boards that night.

Irving is averaging 30.0 points on 61.1 percent shooting over his last three matchups versus Atlanta. While the Cavaliers have gone 9-4 when Irving scores at least 29 this season, they are 2-10 on the road when playing on the second of back-to-backs.

Cleveland has allowed 108.6 points per game in dropping five straight on the road.
