KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.

*Pelicans-Cavaliers Preview* ============================

By NOEY KUPCHAN STATS Writer

New Orleans (18-25) at Cleveland (16-28), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Though Anthony Davis wasn't named an All-Star starter, New Orleans Pelicans coach Monty Williams believes he's more than deserving of a spot on the team.

It's hard to make a case against him.

Davis tries to lead the visiting Pelicans to a season high-tying third straight win and their sixth in seven tries against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Davis is averaging team highs of 20.1 points and 10.5 rebounds along with an NBA-best 3.1 blocks. The 20-year-old delivered one of his best all-around efforts of the season Sunday, finishing with 22 points, a career-high 19 boards and seven blocks in a 100-92 win over Orlando.

"If he hasn't done enough, I don't know what else you can do," Williams said of Davis' chances of making the Western Conference All-Star team. "Every night he carries our team. Even when he doesn't have a great offensive night, he's there on defense, he's rebounding, blocking shots. When the moment was there tonight, he took over and that's what All-Stars do. I don't know what else he can do."

Not voted in by the fans as a starter, Davis could be selected by the coaches as a reserve.

"I'm not really worried about that. I'm worried about winning," said Davis, whose team hasn't won three straight since Nov. 29-Dec. 2. "We know we're not where we want to be record-wise. That's what we've got to focus on, what I've got to focus on. ... If it happens, it happens, but I'm trying to get more wins for the team."

The Pelicans franchise continued its recent domination of the Cavaliers in the latest meeting, winning 104-100 on Nov. 22.

Reserve guard Tyreke Evans scored a team high-tying 19 points to lead six Pelicans in double figures, while adding 10 rebounds. Evans scored 23 points Sunday and has averaged 17.3 over his last four games.

New Orleans (18-25) is 15-7 when Evans, averaging 13.1 points on the season, scores at least 13. It's 1-5 when he doesn't play.

Cleveland (16-28) dropped to 1-3 on its five-game homestand with a disheartening 99-90 loss to Phoenix on Sunday. The Cavaliers led by 20 just before halftime but were outscored 56-29 over the final two quarters, including 25-6 in the third.

"I wish I knew the reason, but we have to figure this out and we have to figure it out quick because we can't have games like this, especially at home," forward Tristan Thompson said. "It's embarrassing for us, to the fans, to the organization to come out like that. We have to take that personally. If we don't, we'll have more situations like this."

All-Star game starter Kyrie Irving had 24 points and nine assists, and Thompson added 17 points and 13 rebounds for his sixth double-double in seven games.

It's unclear if Anderson Varejao will be able to go after suffering a leg injury Sunday. The center, who was down on the court for several minutes but remained in the game, finished with two points on 1-of-9 shooting and 10 rebounds.

"I was worried," coach Mike Brown said. "His knee was bothering him a little bit. It was tough to see."

Varejao ranks among the NBA leaders with 13.1 boards per contest since rejoining the starting lineup Dec. 28.
