LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL is back with the Clippers, and this time with his handpicked head coach. Not that Doc Rivers will make a big difference though, as he's just as uncreative an offensive tactician as Vinny Del Negro was . . . J.J. REDICK will do less ball-handling than he did in Orlando the first half of last season, but he should feast on the wide-open looks Paul creates for him . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD will once again be a Sixth Man of the Year candidate. He's a pure gunner with some creativity to his game . . . DARREN COLLISON is strictly a back-up after a dreadful one-year stint in Dallas . . . WILLIE GREEN, a starter in name-only last year, may be squeezed out of the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN deferred more often last season, especially as he continues to see more double teams. But he did show improvement as a passer . . . JARED DUDLEY steps into Caron Butler's old role. He'll set up for a lot of wide-open corner threes. His reputation as a quality defender is downright wrong . . . MATT BARNES will often close games due to his defense, and he's coming off one of his best offensive seasons . . . Rookie REGGIE BULLOCK is the kind of spot-up shooter the Clips want to surround Paul with. If Bullock's defense matches up with his athleticism, he could break this rotation . . . It's tough to see how BYRON MULLENS fits on a team with postseason aspirations. CENTERS: Though he's the team's only real rim protector, DEANDRE JORDAN will likely be in a part-time role again. He still can't defend the pick-and-roll, and Rivers got by just fine without a shot-blocker in Boston . . . RYAN HOLLINS is little more than a big body with six fouls to give. Blake Griffin will often slide to the five on this team.
LA LAKERS: GUARDS: KOBE BRYANT is 35 and coming off a ruptured Achilles. Even if he is ready for the season opener (as expected), Achilles injuries have drained the athleticism out of younger men . . . STEVE NASH enters the year healthy, but the training staff has discussed a minutes cap for the 39-year-old point guard . . . NICK YOUNG could grab that other starting wing spot, opposite his boyhood idol. How those two gunners could co-exist is something we'd love to see . . . STEVE BLAKE looked good in this offense last season, but is strictly a back-up . . . JODIE MEEKS might shoot his way into a much bigger role this season . . . XAVIER HENRY will need to prove a lot to earn himself minutes . . . What are you complaining about, Lakers fans? You got JORDAN FARMAR back! FORWARDS: PAU GASOL should benefit from the departure of Dwight Howard, who never bought into head coach Mike D'Antoni's offense or even tried to mesh with Gasol. D'Antoni's up-tempo, Euro-style system is perfectly suited to Gasol's strengths. And when Nash sits, they can run a lot of sets through their big man . . . WESLEY JOHNSON will have a chance to grab the vacant small forward spot. The former No. 4 overall pick has been a big disappointment through three seasons, but he looked decent as a spot-up shooter last seasons . . . JORDAN HILL will be the first big man off the bench in a thin frontcourt rotation. He can rebound and clean up around the basket a bit . . . ELIAS HARRIS keeps the Gonzaga connection going . . . SHAWNE WILLIAMS has had success for D'Antoni, but he is far removed from his days contributing for the Knicks. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN is the consolation prize after Dwight Howard's departure. Yes, it's a monstrous downgrade talent-wise, but as a skilled 7-footer, Kaman at least fits D'Antoni's system better . . . ROBERT SACRE has a chance to develop into a useful back-up center.

*Clippers-Lakers Preview* =========================


Los Angeles (42-20) at Los Angeles (21-40), 10:30 p.m. EDT

A five-game winning streak is nothing new for the Los Angeles Clippers, who have now rolled off three of them this season.

It's that sixth straight victory that has managed to elude them.

The Clippers will try to set a new season best for consecutive victories Thursday night when they suit up as the visitor against the city-rival Lakers at Staples Center.

Since the five-game streak began Feb. 23, the Clippers (42-20) have been rolling with an average of 112.2 points. The offense has been balanced in those contests with three different players leading the team in scoring.

The most recent was forward Matt Barnes, who scored a season-high 28 in a 104-96 win over Phoenix on Tuesday. Barnes, seventh on the team at 8.7 points per game, sparked a big third-quarter run, going 7 for 7 from the field for 18 points in the period to help Los Angeles rally from 11 down at halftime.

"I just wanted to be aggressive," Barnes said about his performance in the third. "I had a couple of open looks and they were closing out hard and it gave me some looks at the basket so I was just taking what they gave to me and I was able to knock them down."

The Clippers have continued piling up points despite their two top shooting guards missing time during the surge. Jamal Crawford (strained calf) has missed the last two games and J.J. Redick (back, shoulder) has been sidelined for all five.

Both are out indefinitely, and Redick likely won't return until the playoffs.

Picking up the slack so far has been point guard Darren Collison, who has started the last two alongside Chris Paul in the backcourt. Collison is averaging 14.2 points during the streak and has shot 51.9 percent overall and 50 percent from 3-point range.

New acquisition Danny Granger, a former All-Star, could also see more time after going scoreless in under four minutes in his Clippers debut Tuesday. Granger averaged over 20 points for Indiana in three straight seasons, but injuries have hampered him since 2012.

A victory would not only give the Clippers their longest win streak of the season, but also continue their dominance over their fellow Staples Center tenants. The Clippers have won five of the last six in the series, including a 123-87 victory Jan. 10 that was the Lakers' most lopsided loss of the season.

The Lakers (21-40) were trying to match a season best with a third straight victory Tuesday, but wound up falling to New Orleans 132-125. Pau Gasol scored 29 points and the team shot 54.1 percent in the losing effort.

The Lakers' defense has struggled all season, allowing a Western Conference-high 106.9 points per game. Over the last six games, it's been especially bad with opponents averaging 115.7 in those contests.

The Pelicans shot 59.7 percent, the highest for a Lakers opponent since San Antonio shot 61.0 percent on April 20, 2012.

"Hopefully you put yourself in a position where you get stops constantly, and you don't have to struggle and scramble at the end with desperation," Gasol said. "We just have to be locked in at both ends of the floor ... we really have to be disciplined on the defensive end so they don't score so easily."
