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.
GOLDEN STATE: GUARDS: STEPHEN CURRY is this offense's engine and a stat-stuffing machine, as long as he's healthy. His ankle should be healed, but his small frame hasn't proven to be up to the rigors of the NBA . . . KLAY THOMPSON is a pure shooter who played himself into a starting job last year. He's a bit one-dimensional, but this spread, up-tempo offense is right up his alley . . . JARRETT JACK will back up both guard spots and provide some insurance for the fragile Curry . . . BRANDON RUSH is going to push for a starting job, but he's never proven to be more than a second-unit talent . . . As a rookie, CHARLES JENKINS proved worthy of a roster spot during his late-season audition. But he'll be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs as long as Curry and Jack are healthy. FORWARDS: DAVID LEE's touches will drop alongside Andrew Bogut. The Warriors seem prepared to give him major minutes despite his defensive shortcomings . . . HARRISON BARNES should push for a starting job early. He's not a great iso player, but the Warriors' offense should set him up with catch-and-score opportunities . . . CARL LANDRY is active around the basket and should do some damage over 20 MPG . . . RICHARD JEFFERSON is going to be in a mentor role until his contract expires in two years . . . JEREMY TYLER is young and a borderline usable big off the bench . . . Second-rounder DRAYMOND GREEN isn't an athlete but does a bit of everything. He figures to have a limited role as a rookie. CENTERS: His fractured ankle is not quite 100 percent, but ANDREW BOGUT hopes to be healed enough when the season starts to be the centerpiece of the frontcourt. He can rebound and defend, and he'll get his share of easy scoring opportunities with so many shooters spreading the floor . . . The Warriors seem content to let ANDRIS BIEDRINS rot on the bench . . . Rookie FESTUS EZELI is too raw offensively to see significant minutes.

*Hornets-Warriors Preview* ==========================


New Orleans (26-48) at Golden State (42-32), 10:30 p.m. EDT

Stephen Curry put together another impressive shooting display in leading the Golden State Warriors to a lopsided win over the weekend.

He gave the New Orleans Hornets a taste of his deadly long-range shooting two weeks ago.

Curry looks to help the Warriors inch closer to a playoff berth by sweeping a season series from the Hornets for the first time in 17 years Wednesday night in Oakland.

Three nights after a disappointing home loss to Sacramento, Golden State (42-32) bounced back with a 125-98 win over Portland on Saturday. Curry got off to a fast start, scoring 13 first-quarter points while making all five shots, and he finished with 39 points on 14-of-22 shooting - 7 of 12 from 3-point range.

"We have confidence he can have nights like that, but it's still unbelievable to be out there when he gets in a groove like that," forward David Lee said.

Curry has a single-season franchise record of 236 3-pointers and is making 45.5 percent of his shots from beyond the arc - second-best in the NBA.

The Hornets (26-48) are one of the league's worst teams at defending the 3, allowing opponents to make 37.5 percent, and not surprisingly, were scorched by Curry in a 93-72 loss March 18. He scored 30 and hit 6 of 9 from long range.

The Warriors also took the first two matchups and are seeking their first season sweep since winning both meetings in 1995-96, when the Hornets were in Charlotte and in the Eastern Conference.

Golden State has made the playoffs once since then in 2007 but is closing in on another postseason berth.

"Our goal is to be playing our best basketball these next eight games to put ourselves in position to make the playoffs and to not just be that team that goes to the playoffs and gets swept," Curry said. "We have that bigger picture in mind. We're not looking in the rearview mirror."

Reserves Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry, both of whom played in New Orleans last season, have been key in the Warriors' playoff push. Jack is averaging 16.7 points and 9.0 assists against his former team this season, and Landry had a season-high 25 points and 10 rebounds Saturday.

"It's important to us to finish this race the right way," coach Mark Jackson said. "We don't want to hobble down the stretch, we want to play our brand of basketball and feel real good about what's next."

The Hornets are playing much better now than in the first couple months of the season, though the playoffs are no longer in the picture.

New Orleans defeated Cleveland 112-92 on Sunday to cap a 4-3 homestand, which also included victories over Boston, Memphis and Denver. Greivis Vasquez had 25 points and nine assists against the Cavaliers, feeding Anthony Davis on three alley-oop dunks.

"I'm just trying to get in (Vasquez's vision)," said Davis, who had 17 points and 13 rebounds for his rookie-leading 17th double-double. "Every time he drives to the basket I'm just trying to get in a spot where he can find me. He tells me he's going to get it to me."

The two have fared well against the Warriors this season, with Vasquez averaging 14.0 points and 11.7 assists and Davis at 17.0 points and 11.7 rebounds.

Despite the Hornets' improved play in the last two weeks, some of that could be a product of playing at home. They've lost six straight and 11 of 13 on the road.
