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.
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.

*Hornets-Suns Preview* ======================


New Orleans (26-50) at Phoenix (23-53), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The Phoenix Suns are finishing off one of the worst seasons in team history, and another defeat at home will give the club its longest-ever losing streak there.

Phoenix will try to avoid a seventh consecutive loss in the desert and ninth straight overall when they face the struggling New Orleans Hornets on Sunday night.

With six games left, the Suns (23-53) need to win out to avoid their lowest victory total in a non-shortened season since going 28-54 in 1987-88. Their frustrating 2012-13 got a little worse Friday when they shot a season-best 61.1 percent from the field and still lost 111-107 to Golden State.

"For us to shoot 61 percent and still lose is mind-boggling," interim coach Lindsey Hunter said, "but we had 22 turnovers in some crucial situations during the game. We got to keep working to clean those things up and try to take the little victories out of this and keep building."

The Suns have one home game left after Sunday, which might not be a bad thing. Phoenix has given up 111.8 points and 50.0 percent shooting in its last five home contests.

The team last dropped six straight on its home court Nov. 2-24, 1996, a skid that was part of a team-worst 0-13 losing streak.

Phoenix hasn't dropped nine in a row overall since then.

While the Suns are having problems at home, the Hornets (26-50) have dropped eight straight on the road after a 95-83 loss to Utah on Friday.

Losing four of five overall since winning three in a row is not the way coach Monty Williams wants to see the Hornets perform down the stretch.

"What kind of pro are you when it doesn't look like you're going to go to the playoffs?" he told the team's official website.

Anthony Davis could play in a big part in getting the Hornets into the postseason one day. He scored 24 points and added 11 boards Friday.

"The more time he plays, the better he's going to be," Jazz center Al Jefferson said. "It's going to be scary."

The Suns haven't seen Davis at his best. An ankle injury sidelined him for a 111-108 overtime loss at Phoenix on Nov. 23, and he scored eight points with one rebound in a 93-84 home victory over the Suns on Feb. 6.

Phoenix had taken four straight in the series.

Another strong effort from Michael Beasley could help the Suns win a third in a row at home over the Hornets. Beasley has 38 points in the last two games after scoring 25 off the bench on Friday.

"For him to come out and have two consecutive games where he is really, really good it is impressive and hopefully he can continue to do that," Hunter said.

Suns point guard Goran Dragic scored a season-high 32 points Friday.

New Orleans' Greivis Vazquez had then-career highs of 25 points and 14 assists Nov. 23. Teammate Ryan Anderson's 34 points and eight 3-pointers in that game were career bests.
