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.
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS:Considering how exhausted he looked by the end of the Finals, don't be surprised if TONY PARKER gets more rest during the regular season . . . DANNY GREEN had a coming-out party this past June. A three-point specialist who can defend, the Spurs will lean on him more heavily during the first 82 . . . MANU GINOBILI looks oh-so-close to being done. His minutes will decline . . . MARCO BELINELLI adds quality depth behind Green. He'll take many of the minutes that used to go to Ginobili and Gary Neal, who left for Milwaukee . . . CORY JOSEPH enters the season as the favorite to back up Parker, but it's a fluid situation . . . NANDO DE COLO fell out of the rotation last season, but has enough talent that he should bounce back . . . PATTY MILLS is more of a cheerleader than a useful bench piece. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN just keeps going. The 2012-13 regular season was his best in years. The Spurs will keep his minutes in check, but he likely has another great season in him . . . KAWHI LEONARD is one of the league's elite role players, and he seems to keep getting better. He can shoot, score off the dribble and defend . . . JEFF AYRES is a skilled big man who will back up Duncan and can play alongside him for stretches. Like all of their frontcourt players besides Duncan, the player formerly known as Jeff Pendergraph, will see his playing time will fluctuate greatly depending on matchups. CENTERS: TIAGO SPLITTER continues to improve rapidly, and he'll now take the bulk of the minutes alongside Duncan. But as we saw in last year's Finals, head coach Gregg Popovich will keep him on the bench if the matchup isn't right . . . BORIS DIAW's versatility gives Pop options off the bench . . . MATT BONNER is pretty much just around to participate in the Three-Point Shootout at this point in his career.

*Clippers-Spurs Preview* ========================

Los Angeles (22-12) at San Antonio (25-8), 8:30 p.m. EDT

The last time the Los Angeles Clippers played the San Antonio Spurs, Chris Paul turned in a terrific effort while Tony Parker left early.

Sadly, there won't be a rematch between these outstanding point guards.

The Clippers begin an extended period of time without Paul on Saturday night when they visit the Spurs.

Paul will miss three to five weeks after separating his right shoulder in Friday's 119-112 win at Dallas. He was tripped by Mavericks guard Monta Ellis while dribbling around a screen. He rolled over and stayed on the floor holding his shoulder while trainers attended to him.

"I don't think you could find one guy in the league, maybe LeBron or whoever, but besides that there's no one guy who can make up with what Chris brings," guard Jamal Crawford said. "For us we have to lean on each other."

Darren Collison, who started a game in November that Paul missed, will take over at point guard. Collison scored a season-high 20 points against Dallas.

Paul not only leads the league in assists per game but also entered play Friday averaging 7.4 minutes with the ball in his hands to rank third in the NBA. His average of 97.9 touches per game also ranked third.

"It changes for everybody," Collison said. "Everybody's got to step up and play big. But we'll be fine."

Paul had 23 points, eight rebounds and seven assists Dec. 16 in a 115-92 win over San Antonio (25-8) in which Parker scored eight points before leaving with a right shin contusion.

That marked the Spurs' most lopsided loss of the season, but it didn't draw the kind of harsh words that coach Gregg Popovich has had about his team's last two defeats - calling both of them "embarrassing."

He said that about a loss to Houston on Christmas and again when San Antonio's three-game win streak ended Thursday with a 105-101 home loss to lowly New York.

"I thought they were much more physical than we were and most of the time, physical, aggressive teams are going to win in the NBA, that's just the way it is," Popovich said. "I thought we were very poor in that area. We should be embarrassed by how soft we played tonight."

Spurs star Tim Duncan didn't take the bait when asked about his coach's comments, pointing to the fact that the game was tied with 34 seconds to go.

"We have all the plays right in front of us even though we were soft and whatever else we are," Duncan said.

The defeat overshadowed Marco Belinelli's career-high 32 points.

Los Angeles (23-12) has won two of its last three regular-season games in San Antonio after losing 40 of its previous 43 there.

Without Paul, the Clippers figure to lean more on their frontcourt of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Each scored 25 and posted double-doubles Friday, with Jordan grabbing 18 boards and Griffin 15.

Griffin had 27 points and nine rebounds in the first meeting while Duncan countered with 17 and 11.

The Clippers' depth will also be tested against a Spurs team that leads the NBA with 46.3 points per game from its reserves. San Antonio also leads the Western Conference in field goal percentage at 48.5.
