LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL is back with the Clippers, and this time with his handpicked head coach. Not that Doc Rivers will make a big difference though, as he's just as uncreative an offensive tactician as Vinny Del Negro was . . . J.J. REDICK will do less ball-handling than he did in Orlando the first half of last season, but he should feast on the wide-open looks Paul creates for him . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD will once again be a Sixth Man of the Year candidate. He's a pure gunner with some creativity to his game . . . DARREN COLLISON is strictly a back-up after a dreadful one-year stint in Dallas . . . WILLIE GREEN, a starter in name-only last year, may be squeezed out of the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN deferred more often last season, especially as he continues to see more double teams. But he did show improvement as a passer . . . JARED DUDLEY steps into Caron Butler's old role. He'll set up for a lot of wide-open corner threes. His reputation as a quality defender is downright wrong . . . MATT BARNES will often close games due to his defense, and he's coming off one of his best offensive seasons . . . Rookie REGGIE BULLOCK is the kind of spot-up shooter the Clips want to surround Paul with. If Bullock's defense matches up with his athleticism, he could break this rotation . . . It's tough to see how BYRON MULLENS fits on a team with postseason aspirations. CENTERS: Though he's the team's only real rim protector, DEANDRE JORDAN will likely be in a part-time role again. He still can't defend the pick-and-roll, and Rivers got by just fine without a shot-blocker in Boston . . . RYAN HOLLINS is little more than a big body with six fouls to give. Blake Griffin will often slide to the five on this team.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK is going to likely miss the first 4-to-6 weeks of the regular season after getting another procedure done on Oct. 1 to reduce swelling on his knee. It will probably take him some time to get rid of the rust of not playing all summer . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA should play even more minutes this season with Kevin Martin gone. He has added a three-point shot to his repertoire . . . REGGIE JACKSON could end up absorbing a lot of the minutes that went to James Harden two years ago and Martin last season. But he's nowhere near the offensive threat . . . JEREMY LAMB will push Jackson for that sixth-man role. He's dominated against lesser competition . . . DEREK FISHER will get minutes as a player/coach. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT may have to take on an even bigger role in the regular season as the Thunder try to replace Kevin Martin's offensive production. Either way, he's the MVP among the league's non-LeBrons . . . SERGE IBAKA has had his postseason issues and still struggles defensively outside of rim protection, but he has added value with his mid-range shooting . . . NICK COLLISON's biggest skill is his ability to take charges. He'll continue to log big minutes at the four and five as a glue guy . . . One of two very raw young players, PERRY JONES III and ANDRE ROBERSON, has a chance for playing time on a thin team. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS was a disaster in last year's postseason, but still provides the kind of low-post muscle the Thunder look for . . . Rookie STEVEN ADAMS could take over for Perkins down the road, but he's too raw to make an impact this year . . . HASHEEM THABEET fills out the final roster spot.

*Clippers-Thunder Preview* ==========================


Los Angeles (7-4) at Oklahoma City (7-3), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Chris Paul has been quite impressive during his record-setting double-double streak, most recently using a late scoring surge to help the Los Angeles Clippers earn another victory.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been winning lately, too, though it hasn't come as easily as they would like.

Paul looks to help guide the Clippers to their second victory over the Thunder in eight days when the teams meet Thursday night in Oklahoma City.

Los Angeles (8-4) has won five of six after Paul scored 16 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter - 12 in the final 3:41 - of Wednesday's 102-98 win at Minnesota. He also added 11 assists to set an NBA record with 12 straight double-doubles to start a season.

Blake Griffin extended his own double-double streak to five with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

"It's just cool to see the ball go through the net," Paul said. "I'll take it whenever. Fourth quarter is winning time and we're all competitive, but as the leader of the team, me and Blake, we know that's when it's time to win."

Paul, who is averaging 19.5 points and a league-best 12.5 assists, surpassed Magic Johnson's mark of 11 straight double-doubles to begin the 1990-91 season.

"It's huge man. Magic is a mentor of mine, somebody I look up to," Paul said. "His basketball production was unbelievable so be mentioned in anything with him is huge and an honor."

Paul had 14 points and 16 assists in a 111-103 home win over the Thunder on Nov. 13 as the Clippers ended a three-game skid in the series. Oklahoma City lost the next night at Golden State after a fourth-quarter rally fell short, and it needed to come on strong late to win its next two contests.

Kevin Durant scored 38 points and Russell Westbrook had 30 and 12 rebounds as the Thunder (7-3) overcame a 14-point second-half deficit to beat Denver 115-113 on Monday.

"It's tough. We can't continue to (fall behind) and put pressure on ourselves," Westbrook said. "We've got to start the game better."

Coach Scott Brooks has been proud of his team's effort, but he agrees with his star point guard that Oklahoma City needs to be consistent throughout the game.

"We're going to keep fighting to the last possession," Brooks said. "That's always been a trademark, but we can't just turn it on the second half. We have to correct that. It's my job to find combinations where guys are going to play with more defensive force."

Stopping Paul will be a challenge, and Brooks is hoping his team is up for it.

"We want to have better focus on guarding the ball and staying in front of the ball by putting pressure on the ball and making him feel you on the defensive end," Brooks told the team's official website. "When we do that, our activity and our length and our athleticism can really help our defense."

The Thunder started strong and led the Clippers by nine at halftime in the most recent meeting, but they were outscored 30-16 in the third quarter and couldn't recover.

Durant, who is averaging 33.8 points in his last four against Los Angeles, finished that contest with 33 points and 10 assists, while Westbrook matched Durant's assist total and added 19 points.

Griffin had 22 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists.
