NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: JRUE HOLIDAY is perfect for head coach Monty Williams. He defends and can create in the half-court set . . . ERIC GORDON didn't want New Orleans to match his deal two offseasons ago, and he spent last year letting everyone know it. If healthy and motivated (two big 'ifs') he's a 20-point scorer . . . TYREKE EVANS will get some starts at the three and come off the bench at times. Either way, he is the kind of aggressive (if sometimes out-of- control) offensive threat this lineup needs . . . Even after an injury-filled season, ANTHONY MORROW's shooting could earn him a rotation spot . . . AUSTIN RIVERS was overmatched last season, to the point where he didn't seem to belong in the NBA. It's tough to see the win-now Pels relying on him often. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS was overwhelmed by Williams' complex defensive schemes, and opponents consistently took him out of plays with screen-and-rolls at him. Williams will surely use some of his new talent to allow Davis to roam more on defense . . . RYAN ANDERSON's defensive shortcomings could lead to a drop in playing time, but his shooting and the spacing it creates is too valuable to this offense . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU will likely split time with Tyreke Evans at the three. He's more valuable defensively, and is starting to show some signs of improvement on offense . . . DARIUS MILLER has a shot to break into the rotation if his defense improves . . . LANCE THOMAS is a long athlete who is capable of playing some good defensive minutes . . . ARINZE ONUAKU most likely won't see the floor for more than a minute at a time. CENTERS: JASON SMITH might be their most complete defensive big man, and that should be enough to earn him solid minutes . . . GREG STIEMSMA is more off a warm body, but he at least gives them another rim-protecting option . . . JEFF WITHEY will spend most of the season on the bench learning Williams' complex schemes.
PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.

*Pelicans-Suns Preview* =======================


New Orleans (3-3) at Phoenix (4-2), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Coming off another dominant all-around performance, Anthony Davis is starting to emerge as one of the premier players in the game.

The Phoenix Suns, however, found a way to contain him earlier this week.

Looking to avenge that lackluster effort, Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans go for a third straight win Sunday night against a Suns team that has yet to lose at home.

Davis has turned heads in the early going, leading New Orleans (3-3) with 23.0 points, 11.5 rebounds and 4.3 blocks per game. He averaged 13.5, 8.2 and 1.8, respectively, during his 2012-13 rookie season.

"I work on certain things and try to apply it during the game," Davis said. "That's why you work out. That's why you have summer sessions and work with the coaches, work with the team, trainers, whoever, to get better. I'd be disappointed in myself if I hadn't gotten better."

Davis was at it again Friday, recording a career-high 32 points on 12-of-18 shooting and grabbing 12 rebounds in a 96-85 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

"He's the franchise. He's that guy. He's the go-to guy and everybody here knows it," said Jrue Holiday, who had 13 points and 13 assists for his first double-double with New Orleans. "We want him to be that guy. It's awesome to see."

The 20-year-old Davis also blocked a career-high six shots for the second time in four games.

"He's a special player because he's athletic," Lakers big man Pau Gasol said. "... He's got a complete package for his second year in the league. It's pretty impressive."

Davis, though, had one of his quieter games in Tuesday's 104-98 loss to Phoenix. He had 11 rebounds and five blocks but was limited to a season-low 17 points on 5-of-14 from the field.

Phoenix's Eric Bledsoe, meanwhile, had 25 points on 10-of-12 shooting as the Suns shot 50.0 percent that night.

"I just took what the defense gave me," Bledsoe said afterward. "They gave me layups all night, so I was going to take every last one of them."

Bledsoe, averaging a team-leading 20.3 points, scored nine of his 17 over the final 12 minutes in Friday's 114-103 win over Denver. The emerging guard has been especially good in the fourth quarter during the Suns' 3-0 start at home, averaging 11.3 points.

"I'm real confident, my team's confident in me, my coaching staff, everybody's confident in me having the ball throughout the game," Bledsoe, who added nine assists Friday, told the team's official website. "I just happened to make good decisions in the fourth."

The Suns (4-2) also got another big game from Markieff Morris, who had a career-high 28 points and 10 boards off the bench. He totaled 23 and 12 two nights earlier in a 99-96 loss at San Antonio.

"He's doing a nice job of not just floating around that 15-, 18-foot range looking for a jump shot," coach Jeff Hornacek said. "He's powering the ball inside."

The Suns' reserves are averaging an impressive 36.7 points.

"We're going to need that for the rest of the season to be one of those good teams in the West," guard Gerald Green said.

Green has started the last three games in place of Goran Dragic, who is hoping to suit up Sunday after being out with a sprained ankle.

The Suns are enjoying their best home start since opening 10-0 in 2009-10.
