BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS will surely take on more of a distributor role this year, but he's still this team's best option from three-point range, as well . . . JOE JOHNSON started to break down last season, so along with fewer shots (with the upgrade to the rest of the roster), he figures to play fewer regular-season minutes as well . . . JASON TERRY is clearly in the decline phase of his career, but is still the top scoring option among Brooklyn's second unit . . . ALAN ANDERSON gives them another shooter off the bench . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON steps into the back-up point guard spot vacated by C.J. Watson. The injury-prone vet will be one of the more rarely used back-up PGs . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR will be a non-factor. FORWARDS: PAUL PIERCE still has something left in the tank. While his athleticism is fading, he's still a cagey scorer who can also play some point forward to set up Williams . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO will be a Swiss army knife sixth man and should see plenty of starts as new head coach Jason Kidd rotates which veterans rest . . . REGGIE EVANS was retained for his rebounding ability and willingness to look ridiculous while flopping . . . ANDRAY BLATCHE will continue to settle in as a second-unit big. He's a name to remember for the future, as Kevin Garnett doesn't have much left in the tank . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC will be a seldom-used option as a stretch four . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA is still years away from contributing, and the influx of veterans will further delay his development. CENTERS: Last year did a lot to assuage durability concerns for BROOK LOPEZ. He's highly skilled, and he may be forced to grab more rebounds now that Reggie Evans is on the second unit . . . KEVIN GARNETT will start at power forward. He's still an effective pick-and-pop shooter and pick-and-roll defender, but he'll have to rest often during the regular season . . . MASON PLUMLEE is in no position to help this season.
INDIANA: GUARDS: GEORGE HILL is less of a creator and more of a game-manager/scorer, which fits fine in this starting five . . . LANCE STEPHENSON continues to be an enigma. His speed pushing the ball in transition is an asset, but his terrible shooting and bizarre decision-making often makes him a liability in the half court . . . C.J. WATSON has proven to be a capable second-unit point guard, but he's on his third team in three years because he's managed to give away two playoff games with monumentally bad moments . . . ORLANDO JOHNSON is unlikely to see meaningful minutes, but his role should grow slightly now that Gerald Green is gone. FORWARDS: This is PAUL GEORGE'S team. Once a do-it-all role player, he's now polished enough to create his own offense . . . As expected, DAVID WEST bounced back in his second season off a torn ACL. He's still deadly as a mid-range shooter, a savvy passer and a strong rebounder . . . LUIS SCOLA slides into Tyler Hansbrough's old role as a second-unit banger, and insurance for West and Roy Hibbert . . . DANNY GRANGER is in no-man's land. He's not better than Paul George, and probably no longer an upgrade over Lance Stephenson. His best asset may be his expiring deal . . . CHRIS COPELAND can't defend, but gives the Pacers a three-point threat . . . SOLOMON HILL doesn't figure to contribute this season. CENTERS: ROY HIBBERT proved capable of handling more minutes last season, but Indy will likely still be cautious with their asthmatic 7-foot-2 center during the regular season . . . IAN MAHINMI is back to give his six fouls and move some bodies out of the paint.

*Nets-Pacers Preview* =====================


Brooklyn (20-23) at Indiana (35-10), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Lance Stephenson isn't being shy with his displeasure about being snubbed from the Eastern Conference All-Star team.

The Brooklyn Nets have seen firsthand just how much he's elevated his game this season.

Stephenson looks to help guide the Indiana Pacers to a four-game season sweep of visiting Brooklyn when the teams meet Saturday night.

The fourth-year guard is a leading candidate to be named the league's most improved player while averaging 14.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists. Stephenson recorded his fourth triple-double - he had none in his first three seasons - after finishing with 14 points, 10 boards and 10 assists in Thursday's 102-94 loss to Phoenix.

Despite his solid production for an Indiana squad that has the best record in the East, Stephenson was not selected as a reserve by the conference's coaches - and he's not happy about it.

"I'm very upset, but I'm just going to keep working hard and prove everybody wrong every time I'm on that floor," Stephenson told the team's official website.

He'll look to take that aggression out on the Nets while helping the Pacers (35-10) snap out of a minor funk that has seen them go 2-3 in their last five. Stephenson has averaged 21.3 points while shooting 61.5 percent from the field in the three meetings with Brooklyn.

He had 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists while Paul George - an All-Star along with center Roy Hibbert - scored 24 points in a 105-91 home victory over the Nets in the most recent matchup Dec. 28.

Hibbert finished with 26 points and George, who shot 5 of 17 from the field, finished with 12 points and 12 boards against the Suns as Indiana failed to overcome a 17-point deficit at the end of the first quarter.

It marked Indiana's first home game after a five-game West Coast trip.

"We didn't wake up until late, and by that point it was too late," George said. "We can't make no excuses. Every team goes through long stretches on the road. For us, we should have been happy to be back home. There's no excuse. We let one slip."

Brooklyn (20-24) has won four of five on the road, but it has dropped two straight after winning 10 of 11 to begin 2014. It fell 104-103 on Monday after Toronto's Patrick Patterson scored in the closing seconds, then was routed 120-95 by Oklahoma City on Friday.

The Thunder set an NBA season high by shooting 63.6 percent and outrebounded the Nets 41-17 - the fewest boards in a single game in NBA history.

Shaun Livingston, tasked with guarding NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant, finished with a team-high 16 points. Deron Williams came off the bench for the sixth straight game since returning from injury and scored 14 points.

Joe Johnson, named an All-Star reserve, scored nine points. He finished with nine and shot 4 of 12 in the last meeting with the Pacers.

Andrei Kirilenko didn't play because of a right calf strain, and Andray Blatche left in the second half due to a bruised hip. Their statuses for this contest are unclear.

"We have to look at what we can do to get better for (Saturday)," coach Jason Kidd said.

George had 24 points in a 96-91 win over the Nets on Nov. 9, and he and Stephenson finished with 26 apiece in a 103-86 victory Dec. 23.
