KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.
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.

*Rockets-Nuggets Preview* =========================

Houston (43-33) at Denver (52-24), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The Denver Nuggets probably would have preferred having their home win streak snapped in their last game in exchange for a healthy Danilo Gallinari heading into the postseason.

The Nuggets will play their first contest since learning Gallinari will be out for the season when they look to match a franchise record with a 20th straight home victory and end the Houston Rockets' four-game win streak Saturday night in this matchup of short-handed, high-scoring clubs.

The versatile forward tore his left ACL in Thursday's 95-94 home win over Dallas. Gallinari planted his left leg awkwardly in the first half and Friday's MRI confirmed the Nuggets' fears of a serious injury that will require a long rehabilitation.

"We're extremely disappointed for Gallo. He was having a career year in scoring and rebounding and was a huge reason for our success," said Masai Ujiri, the Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations. "We will obviously support him and be there for him throughout his recovery."

Gallinari's loss is a major blow. He's second on Denver (52-24) with 16.2 points per game and has a team-high 135 3-pointers.

Corey Brewer replaced Gallinari in the lineup late in the first half and scored a game-high 23 points, adding three big plays in the final 19 seconds that helped Denver improve to a NBA-best 34-3 at home.

"It's going to be tough on us," Brewer said, "but we've got to just keep playing hard."

Denver can match its longest home win streak, set from Jan. 9-March 30, 1985.

The Nuggets have won three straight - all without Ty Lawson, averaging a team-high 16.7 points. The point guard is out indefinitely with a plantar fascia tear in his right foot.

Denver, third in the league in scoring at 105.6 points, has won six straight over Houston - the league's highest-scoring team at 106.1. Sweeping the four-game season series could be tricky without Lawson and Gallinari, who each averaged 19.3 points in the first three 2012-13 matchups.

James Harden leads all players with 19.7 points per game when these teams have met, and he will be the focal point as Houston (43-33) tries for its third five-game win streak of the season.

That will be even more the case since Rockets' second-leading scorer Chandler Parsons is expected to miss a second straight game with a right calf injury. Guard Carlos Delfino has missed the last two games, sitting out Friday's 116-98 victory at Portland with the flu.

Harden picked up the slack with 33 points in his second game back after missing two with a foot injury. Jeremy Lin had 22 points and eight assists, just missing a third straight double-double.

"We did a pretty good job of staying aggressive and taking the ball to the basket," Harden said. "We were getting in the paint and staying in attack mode."

Houston, which is 6-13 in the second half of back-to-back games, reduced its magic number to two for a playoff spot. It trails sixth-place Golden State by one game in the Western Conference standings.

Denver is in third place, one game ahead of Memphis and two in front of the Los Angeles Clippers.
