PHOENIX: GUARDS: With Steve Nash gone, GORAN DRAGIC takes over at the point. He was a monster as a starter in Houston late last year, and he's familiar with Phoenix's system from his time there as Nash's backup . . . SHANNON BROWN is one of the league's better sixth men and could end up seeing close to starter minutes this year. Once just a raw athlete, he's made major strides as a shooter and ball-handler . . . KENDALL MARSHALL was a bit of a product of an absurdly talented supporting cast in college at UNC. He's got work to do to become an NBA-caliber starter, but he'll be capable enough as a backup point guard as a rookie . . . SEBASTIAN TELFAIR still can't hit an open jump shot, but will factor into the backcourt rotation. FORWARDS: LUIS SCOLA steps in as the starting four. While he's in his 30's and an underwhelming athlete, he's crafty and relentless . . . JARED DUDLEY will continue to be their main catch-and-shoot threat on the wing. It might take a while to develop an on-court chemistry with Dragic . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY has a chance to grab a starting spot. He rarely has his head on straight, but he can score . . . CHANNING FRYE, the sharp-shooting 7-footer, will likely miss the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart, but this condition is expected to completely heal . . . WESLEY JOHNSON gets a fresh start. He needs to start knocking down shots to land a rotation spot . . . MARKIEFF MORRIS showed flashes as a rookie, but has to make better decisions on the offensive end. He'll be a key on the second unit . . . Well-traveled P.J. TUCKER earned himself a roster spot with an impressive Summer League. CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT had a great year-and-a-half alongside Steve Nash, and he'll have to prove he can create in the low post a little more. But he's a skilled big man who should pair nicely with Luis Scola as a scorer and passer in the post . . . Injury-riddled JERMAINE O'NEAL is still a strong low-post defender and shot-blocker.
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.

*Suns-Clippers Preview* =======================


Phoenix (23-51) at Los Angeles (49-26), 10:30 p.m. EDT

On the verge of matching their longest losing streak of the season and following two particularly bad defeats, the Los Angeles Clippers may be getting a break with the Western Conference's worst team coming to town.

Chris Paul expects them to treat it like a playoff game.

The Clippers get their fourth crack at a franchise-record 50th victory and have a shot to wrap up the Pacific Division on Wednesday night as they meet the Phoenix Suns.

"We've had three chances to get to 50 wins, and we still haven't been able to do it. So Wednesday's a big game for us," Paul said. "We've got to approach it like a playoff game. Most teams are approaching us like that."

Los Angeles (49-26) has been outscored by double digits with its All-Star point guard on the floor in each of the last three games. The first one was a solid performance by the Clippers, losing 104-102 at West-leading San Antonio on Friday, but the last two were poor efforts that left many players frustrated.

Paul was the only starter not benched for the entire fourth quarter of Saturday's 98-81 loss to a Houston team missing James Harden. Los Angeles returned from a 1-3 road trip only to lose 109-106 to Indiana on Monday, when the starters again sat out the fourth except for Paul and Blake Griffin entering late after the reserves nearly made up a 24-point deficit.

"You'd love to sit here and say, 'Yeah, it's a wakeup call and we're going to be completely different,'" Griffin said. "And that's the idea and that's what we've talked about and that's what we want to do moving forward.

"We have to prove that."

Griffin averages a team-leading 8.4 rebounds but has grabbed 5.0 per game over the last four. His averages of 14.0 points and 40.9 percent shooting over the last seven games are well below his season marks (18.3, 54.0).

Paul is shooting 35.2 percent in the last four, including 2 for 12 from 3-point range.

Their struggles could be why the Clippers remain stuck on 49 wins, tied with the 1974-75 Boston Braves for the franchise record, and looking to avoid losing a season-high four straight for the third time.

They will clinch their first division title with a win Wednesday and a loss by second-place Golden State to New Orleans.

"You can only talk so much, eventually, answers speak louder than words," said reserve Jamal Crawford, who had 25 points Monday.

Phoenix (23-51) also is one loss shy of matching its worst slide of the season, having dropped six in a row and 10 of 11.

Like the Clippers, the Suns hosted the Central Division-leading Pacers in their last game but were more competitive, trailing by single digits for most of the contest before losing 112-104 on Saturday.

"I can definitely see that trend where guys get up a little bit more for the high quality teams," forward Jared Dudley said.

That may have been the case when the Suns last saw the Clippers, winning 93-88 in Phoenix on Jan. 24. However, an injured Paul missed that game after averaging 16.5 points and 12.0 assists in two December matchups as Los Angeles won both.

Griffin averaged 23.5 points in those victories before getting held to 12 in January.

Phoenix's Goran Dragic had 24 points in that meeting after totaling 15 in the first two. He's coming off a 21-point, nine-assist performance Saturday after being rested for the previous two games.
