ATLANTA: GUARDS: It was a rocky offseason for JEFF TEAGUE, who looked like a goner at one point. Instead, he'll be the focal point of Atlanta's offense . . . Coming off a torn ACL, resident gunner LOUIS WILLIAMS is a question mark entering the season, especially as a guy who relied so much on quickness and explosiveness. He may not be right again until 2014-15 . . . JOHN JENKINS was rock solid as a rookie and should see a bump in playing time with DeShawn Stevenson gone. Jenkins is a legit shooter who can hold his own defensively . . . Rookie DENNIS SCHRODER is a year or two away from consistent minutes, but the penniless man's Rajon Rondo comparisons aren't off . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM is a middling talent destined for a minor role. FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was lost in the shuffle in Utah last year, but he'll be a significant part of this offense in Atlanta. He's a well-rounded power forward and may prove to be a better fit than Josh Smith was for the Hawks . . . KYLE KORVER is coming off a huge year and will play major minutes at both wing spots again . . . A shadow of his former self, ELTON BRAND will rotate in at power forward and center . . . This generation's junkyard dog, DEMARRE CARROLL gives Atlanta some defensive options on the wing and energy off the bench. Outside of some transition baskets, he's a non-factor on offense . . . Euro veteran PERO ANTIC is a finesse stretch four who provides frontcourt depth. CENTERS: After playing a lot of power forward alongside Zaza Pachulia last year, AL HORFORD will spend most of this season at center. With Josh Smith gone, he's poised to have his biggest offensive numbers ever . . . GUSTAVO AYON has proven capable of eating up some space on the second unit. He'll be the second big off the bench after Elton Brand.
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.

*Hawks-Pelicans Preview* ========================


Atlanta (25-21) at New Orleans (20-27), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Atlanta Hawks and New Orleans Pelicans each were enjoying solid stretches until running into a pair of the NBA's best teams.

Both clubs will look to get back on track after disappointing losses as New Orleans hosts Atlanta on Wednesday night.

Atlanta (25-22) entered its contest with league-leading Indiana on Tuesday having won three of four, but no starter scored in double figures in an 89-85 defeat. Paul Millsap, who scored at least 20 points in seven of his previous 10 contests, finished with seven and went 2 of 11 from the field.

Mike Scott netted a team-high 15 points and Elton Brand scored 12. Kyle Korver's only 3-pointer extended his NBA-record streak to 116 games with a 3.

"Offensively, it just wasn't one of our better nights," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "I think you have to give Indiana and their defense credit for that."

The Hawks averaged 116.5 points and shot 49.6 percent over their previous four, but they connected on only 43.4 percent from the field and 7 of 25 from 3-point range Tuesday.

DeMarre Carroll came in averaging 15.7 points and shooting 53.3 percent from long distance over his previous seven, but he missed all three of his attempts from beyond the arc and finished with eight points.

"That's why they're the best team in the league defensively," Scott said. "We just missed open shots and couldn't get it in."

New Orleans (20-27) had won four of five but had a rough second half in Monday's 102-95 loss to San Antonio. Anthony Davis finished with 17 points and 16 rebounds for his 21st double-double, but he missed 15 of 21 from the field.

The Pelicans led by 14 near the end of the third quarter, but they committed 16 turnovers that led to 18 Spurs points. Davis had five of them.

"We had some costly turnovers," coach Monty Williams said. "A number of our guys, you look at our numbers, we just did not shoot the ball well across the board - in the fourth quarter for sure."

Injuries have been an issue for New Orleans as well. Jrue Holiday missed his 13th straight game with a stress fracture in his right tibia, and Tyreke Evans played only five minutes before leaving with a rib injury.

With Evans' status uncertain, the Pelicans signed swingman Luke Babbitt to eat up minutes. Babbitt, the 16th pick in the 2010 draft by Portland, was playing overseas. He played 62 games with the Trail Blazers last season.

Babbitt will be available to Atlanta.

"We definitely can use him to make a lot of shots and spread the floor," guard Anthony Morrow told the team's official website. "Everybody's got to make him comfortable and let him know that what he does well, we really needed. He has a lot of freedom to shoot the ball when he's open."

Davis scored eight points and shot 4 of 11 in the last meeting with Atlanta on Feb. 8, but Eric Gordon scored a game-high 27 points in New Orleans' 111-100 victory.

Jeff Teague scored 21 points for the Hawks in that contest.
