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.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: GREIVIS VASQUEZ seems to have the edge in the point guard battle. He's a pass-first floor general who fits better in a lineup full of chuckers . . . ISAIAH THOMAS will have a major role whether he starts or not. He can score, and while his lack of size is a defensive liability, he makes up for it with harassing on-ball pressure . . . MARCUS THORNTON will eventually be relegated to a smaller role, but the gunning combo guard will get his minutes until Ben McLemore is ready . . . BEN MCLEMORE takes a lot of heat for his lack of assertiveness, but he can knock down corner threes and is an outstanding athlete, which is enough to make him a fine role player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE is kicking around as trade bait . . . Second-rounder RAY MCCALLUM should earn a bench role.FORWARDS: With his potential to be a solid defender, JASON THOMPSON is likely to retain his starting job. He's an afterthought on offense, though . . . LUC RICHARD MBAH A MOUTE seems like a natural to slide into the starting lineup. He can defend multiple spots and doesn't need touches on a team of players who do . . . CARL LANDRY could unseat Thompson. We see him in the same kind of bench role he had in Golden State. He's very good offensively and a relentless rebounder, but will struggle defensively against top-line forwards . . . JOHN SALMONS avoided the amnesty axe, though his role will likely be reduced again . . . Stretch four PATRICK PATTERSON is on the fringe of this rotation . . . Streaky shooting should have TRAVIS OUTLAW in and out of the rotation. CENTERS: The new regime of head coach Michael Malone will try again with DEMARCUS COUSINS, who continues to show flashes of dominance but too often plays and acts like a head case. He's playing for a contract, which would presumably have him on his best behavior . . . CHUCK HAYES will continue to be a second-unit glue guy at the four and five.

*Pelicans-Kings Preview* ========================


New Orleans (23-36) at Sacramento (20-39), 10:00 p.m. EDT

Anthony Davis' ailing left shoulder has created added concern for the New Orleans Pelicans as they suffer through the longest current losing streak in the Western Conference.

Though he's expected to play through the injury, Davis is looking to bounce back from a lackluster performance as the Pelicans try to avoid matching their worst skid Monday night in Sacramento.

After spraining his shoulder in a 108-89 loss at Dallas on Wednesday, Davis appeared to be fine Friday when he scored 32 points on 14-of-18 shooting in a 116-104 loss at Phoenix.

The All-Star forward, however, struggled Saturday with three fouls in his first seven minutes against the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin. He ended up with eight points and went 1 of 6 in a 108-76 defeat at Staples Center.

Davis played just 20 minutes as the Pelicans (23-36) suffered their worst loss of the season.

"We didn't have much of anything from our starting unit," coach Monty Williams said. "We could blame it on foul trouble or the referees, but I thought they just physically pushed us around and we just didn't respond."

Davis will try to regroup while leading New Orleans to its second win in three meetings with the Pacific Division-worst Kings (20-39). He had 21 points and 11 boards in a 113-100 road win Dec. 23, but scored 16 and shot 4 of 12 in a 114-97 home loss Jan. 21.

New Orleans, last in the Southwest Division, has dropped seven in a row after losing the first three on five-game trip by an average of 21.0 points.

The Pelicans, who lost a season-high eight straight Jan. 4-18, are averaging 92.9 points during the skid after shooting a season-low 32.9 percent Saturday. Starting guards Eric Gordon and Brian Roberts were a combined 2 for 21 after the club announced Friday that point guard Jrue Holiday (broken right tibia) would miss the remainder of the season.

Tyreke Evans will try to continue his improved play since moving into the starting lineup for the past two games. He had 22 points, nine rebounds and five assists against the Clippers.

Evans, who spent his first four seasons in Sacramento, recorded 25 points, 12 assists and six boards in his first return to the city in December. He also led the Pelicans with 17 points off the bench in their home loss to the Kings.

Sacramento's Rudy Gay matched a career high with 41 points in that contest, and he's averaged 28.3 and 54.7 percent shooting in his last four games.

Gay scored 24 points and hit four 3s while Isaiah Thomas had 22 points with eight assists Saturday, but the Kings dropped their third in a row, 108-97 to visiting Minnesota.

"Good teams don't beat themselves," coach Michael Malone said after his squad committed 19 turnovers. "So it's very hard in the same game to beat your opponents and yourself and we did that."

DeMarcus Cousins had 21 points and 17 rebounds in his return after serving a one-game suspension for punching Houston guard Patrick Beverley on Tuesday. He's totaled 42 points, 25 boards and six blocks in the two games against the Pelicans.

Cousins, averaging team highs of 22.3 points and 11.6 rebounds, will face a New Orleans team that has given up 113.8 points and 51.1 percent from the field in its last four.

The Kings had won four straight home meetings before the Dec. 23 loss.
