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.
DALLAS: GUARDS: MONTA ELLIS slides into the 2-guard spot vacated by O.J. Mayo. He should benefit from the attention Dirk Nowitzki gets and from playing alongside a pure point guard . . . JOSE CALDERON is a defensive liability, but he should have the Mavs' offense running more smoothly . . . VINCE CARTER has become one of the league's better sixth men. He'll see plenty of minutes for a team that figures to frequently play small ball . . . When healthy, DEVIN HARRIS should be the defensive side of a platoon with Calderon . . . Israeli star GAL MEKEL should be able to help at both guard spots on a part-time basis . . . WAYNE ELLINGTON has yet to prove he can do anything with second-unit minutes . . . After breaking his foot, SHANE LARKIN is looking at a redshirt year. FORWARDS: Last season was a bit of a lost season for DIRK NOWITZKI, who missed the beginning of the year after knee surgery and didn't get going until late. Health, as well as the arrival of a true point guard in Jose Calderon, should allow him to bounce back nicely . . . SHAWN MARION had a nice resurgence last season, and he should have at least one good season left as he plays for another contract . . . JAE CROWDER has a chance to establish himself as the heir apparent to Marion. He's a hustle guy right now, and whether he can be more will depend on whether he develops his jump shot . . . RICKY LEDO was a favorite NBA draft sleeper for many experts. But while the skilled wing has NBA talent, he also has a reputation for being a bad seed. Ledo is almost certainly headed to the D-League for now. CENTERS: SAMUEL DALEMBERT is a sad consolation prize in the Dwight Howard derby. He'll likely step in as a starter . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT has never been able to overcome injuries. He could end up splitting time with Dalembert . . . DEJUAN BLAIR will provide energy and offense at the four and five . . . BERNARD JAMES should continue to develop as a rim protector.

*Pelicans-Mavericks Preview* ============================


New Orleans (23-33) at Dallas (35-23), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Dirk Nowitzki got a friendly bounce his last time out, helping the Dallas Mavericks extend an offensive surge that has them a season-high 12 games above .500.

If recent meetings are any indication, Dallas may be able to continue its high-scoring ways when it faces the slumping New Orleans Pelicans.

The Mavericks shoot for their 10th win in 12 games overall as they try beat New Orleans for the seventh straight time Wednesday night in Dallas.

Nowitzki totaled 49 points and went 7 for 14 from 3-point range in the Mavs' victories over Philadelphia and Detroit last weekend to open a three-game trip. Though he managed just 15 points while missing all five of his 3s at New York on Monday, his 19-foot jumper bounced around and fell through as time expired to give Dallas (35-23) a 110-108 win.

Nowitzki's shot saved the Mavericks after they blew an eight-point lead in the final 90 seconds.

"That's one thing about the greatest players," coach Rick Carlisle said. "I played with (Larry) Bird for three years. He took more pleasure in hitting a game-winning shot after he missed eight or nine in a row than having a great game at times."

Vince Carter also stepped up by hitting seven 3-pointers - his most since 2007 - on the way to a season-high 23 points. Monta Ellis added 22 and Jose Calderon had 20 points and made five 3s.

The Mavericks, who set season highs with 15 3-pointers and 36 attempts, averaged 115.7 points and 52.6 percent shooting in the three games against struggling opponents.

They're hoping to continue that level of production at home, where they've scored 110.9 per game while reaching 100 points in 10 consecutive contests.

Dallas has been particularly efficient from 3-point range against the Pelicans (23-33), making at least 11 3s while shooting 45.6 percent in its three victories this season.

Nowitzki hit four 3-pointers and finished with 24 points to lead the Mavericks to a 107-90 win in New Orleans on Jan. 10, then made five 3s while scoring a season-high 40 in a 110-107 home victory over the Pelicans the following night.

He also scored 11 points in the fourth quarter and had the last of his season-high four blocks on a crucial possession in the final minute as Dallas pulled out a 100-97 road win in the most recent meeting Dec. 4.

After giving up an average of 95.0 points and 33.3 shooting from 3-point range in their previous four games, the Pelicans allowed the Los Angeles Clippers to make 16 of 28 from beyond the arc in a 123-110 home loss Monday.

Anthony Davis had 26 points and 11 rebounds while Alexis Ajinca set career highs with 19 points and 12 boards. Last-place New Orleans, however, has dropped four in a row and six of seven.

"We played hard, but we just got to do a better job on defense," said Davis, averaging team highs of 20.5 points and 10.2 rebounds.

Davis has totaled 52 points and 22 boards in his last two games. He's also scored a combined 49 while pulling down 27 rebounds in the last two meetings with Dallas after missing the December contest due to a broken hand.

The Mavericks have won 22 of the last 25 home matchups. They haven't swept a season series from the New Orleans franchise since the 2006-07 season.
