KEY GAME INFORMATION
ATLANTA: GUARDS: It was a rocky offseason for JEFF TEAGUE, who looked like a goner at one point. Instead, he'll be the focal point of Atlanta's offense . . . Coming off a torn ACL, resident gunner LOUIS WILLIAMS is a question mark entering the season, especially as a guy who relied so much on quickness and explosiveness. He may not be right again until 2014-15 . . . JOHN JENKINS was rock solid as a rookie and should see a bump in playing time with DeShawn Stevenson gone. Jenkins is a legit shooter who can hold his own defensively . . . Rookie DENNIS SCHRODER is a year or two away from consistent minutes, but the penniless man's Rajon Rondo comparisons aren't off . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM is a middling talent destined for a minor role. FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was lost in the shuffle in Utah last year, but he'll be a significant part of this offense in Atlanta. He's a well-rounded power forward and may prove to be a better fit than Josh Smith was for the Hawks . . . KYLE KORVER is coming off a huge year and will play major minutes at both wing spots again . . . A shadow of his former self, ELTON BRAND will rotate in at power forward and center . . . This generation's junkyard dog, DEMARRE CARROLL gives Atlanta some defensive options on the wing and energy off the bench. Outside of some transition baskets, he's a non-factor on offense . . . Euro veteran PERO ANTIC is a finesse stretch four who provides frontcourt depth. CENTERS: After playing a lot of power forward alongside Zaza Pachulia last year, AL HORFORD will spend most of this season at center. With Josh Smith gone, he's poised to have his biggest offensive numbers ever . . . GUSTAVO AYON has proven capable of eating up some space on the second unit. He'll be the second big off the bench after Elton Brand.
LA LAKERS: GUARDS: KOBE BRYANT is 35 and coming off a ruptured Achilles. Even if he is ready for the season opener (as expected), Achilles injuries have drained the athleticism out of younger men . . . STEVE NASH enters the year healthy, but the training staff has discussed a minutes cap for the 39-year-old point guard . . . NICK YOUNG could grab that other starting wing spot, opposite his boyhood idol. How those two gunners could co-exist is something we'd love to see . . . STEVE BLAKE looked good in this offense last season, but is strictly a back-up . . . JODIE MEEKS might shoot his way into a much bigger role this season . . . XAVIER HENRY will need to prove a lot to earn himself minutes . . . What are you complaining about, Lakers fans? You got JORDAN FARMAR back! FORWARDS: PAU GASOL should benefit from the departure of Dwight Howard, who never bought into head coach Mike D'Antoni's offense or even tried to mesh with Gasol. D'Antoni's up-tempo, Euro-style system is perfectly suited to Gasol's strengths. And when Nash sits, they can run a lot of sets through their big man . . . WESLEY JOHNSON will have a chance to grab the vacant small forward spot. The former No. 4 overall pick has been a big disappointment through three seasons, but he looked decent as a spot-up shooter last seasons . . . JORDAN HILL will be the first big man off the bench in a thin frontcourt rotation. He can rebound and clean up around the basket a bit . . . ELIAS HARRIS keeps the Gonzaga connection going . . . SHAWNE WILLIAMS has had success for D'Antoni, but he is far removed from his days contributing for the Knicks. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN is the consolation prize after Dwight Howard's departure. Yes, it's a monstrous downgrade talent-wise, but as a skilled 7-footer, Kaman at least fits D'Antoni's system better . . . ROBERT SACRE has a chance to develop into a useful back-up center.

*Hawks-Lakers Preview* ======================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Atlanta (1-1) at Los Angeles (1-2), 9:30 p.m. EDT

Although the Los Angeles Lakers have struggled since a promising opener, they haven't had much trouble lately when they've hosted the Atlanta Hawks.

New-look Los Angeles hopes to avoid a third straight loss Sunday night when its tries to beat the Hawks for the eighth consecutive time at home.

Without Kobe Bryant, the Lakers (1-2) opened a season with modest expectations in stunning fashion Tuesday when they pulled out a 116-103 victory over a Los Angeles Clippers team with NBA title hopes.

The Lakers shot 45.2 percent from the field and hit 14 of 29 from 3-point range in that contest, but weren't able to find a rhythm offensively in losses to 2012-13 playoff teams Golden State and San Antonio.

After shooting 39.3 percent from the floor in Wednesday's 125-94 loss to the Warriors, they connected on 36.6 percent and just 8 of 27 from beyond the arc in Friday's 91-85 defeat to a visiting Spurs team that was missing Tim Duncan.

"I think we know each other, but we definitely need a little more time," said guard Jordan Farmar, who had seven points. "We're out there competing, trying to get it done.

"It's a work in progress. It's a long season, and there's going to be growing pains until we find our groove."

Since pouring in a game-high 22 to help stun the Clippers, Xavier Henry has totaled 17 points on 4-of-17 shooting. He should be fine after getting a two-inch cut on his forehead that needed nine stitches when he was accidentally kicked against the Spurs.

Jodie Meeks is averaging 13.7 points on 52.0 percent shooting while helping fill in for Bryant, who is making steady progress in his recovery from a torn Achilles but is still weeks away from a return.

Atlanta nearly ended its skid in Los Angeles on March 3 when it came back from a 16-point second-half deficit before Bryant hit the go-ahead layup with 9 seconds left for a 99-98 victory.

Now the Lakers will try to beat the Hawks for the 21st time in 24 home meetings.

After dropping its opener 118-109 in Dallas, Atlanta (1-1) gave Mike Budenholzer his first victory as an NBA head coach by beating Toronto 102-95 in Friday's home debut.

"It's a good feeling," said Budenholzer, a long-time assistant in San Antonio. "But I mostly feel good for our group because of how hard they've worked for the entire coaching staff."

Budenholzer's club, shooting 47.7 percent from the field, hopes to keep improving defensively after putting up a slightly better effort against the Raptors. The Hawks allowed Toronto to shoot 45.5 percent from the field and hit 7 of 23 from 3-point range after Dallas had made 44 of 77 shots (57.1 percent), including 11 of 24 3-pointers.

Jeff Teague played well with 41 points and 21 assists in the first two games, while Paul Millsap has filled in nicely for the departed Josh Smith with 35 points on 16-of-27 shooting.

Al Horford bounced back from a quiet opener with 22 points and 16 rebounds Friday. In the most recent meeting, Horford had 14 points and 14 boards in a 96-92 home win over the Lakers on March 13.
