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.
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.

(CORRECTS ranking in 14th graph)

*Hawks-Clippers Preview* ========================

Atlanta (26-34) at Los Angeles (43-20), 10:30 p.m. EDT

The Los Angeles Clippers have won a season-high six straight while the Atlanta Hawks are enduring their longest road losing streak in seven seasons.

The high-scoring Clippers have had trouble with the Hawks over the years and will try to hand Atlanta a sixth straight defeat and 10th in a row on the road Saturday night.

Los Angeles (43-20) cruised Thursday to a 142-94 rout of the Los Angeles Lakers for the most lopsided victory in franchise history. Darren Collison scored 24 points and Blake Griffin had 20 and 11 rebounds as the Clippers finished with the most points by any NBA team this season.

"It's going in the right direction," point guard Chris Paul said. "We don't want to get too high or too low. We just want to try to keep getting better."

Collison made his third straight start in place of Jamal Crawford, who is day to day with a strained right calf. Los Angeles didn't miss Crawford, shooting 55.3 percent and enjoying a 64-33 edge on the glass.

"Right now, if we want to accomplish something big, these are the games that we've got to continue to get better as the minutes are gone throughout the game," Collison said.

The rout allowed coach Doc Rivers to give Danny Granger more playing time in the swingman's second game with the Clippers since being signed Feb. 28. Granger had 10 points in 18 minutes.

"I'm going to be very patient with Danny," Rivers said. "I just think it's going to take a while for him to really get going. You could see some of the things he could do for us."

The Clippers have dropped seven of nine meetings with the Hawks, who fell 111-97 at Golden State on Friday. Atlanta (26-34) is riding its longest road slide since losing its final 13 on the road in 2006-07.

The Hawks have allowed an average of 112.8 points in losing five in a row overall. That doesn't seem to bode well for facing the Clippers, who are averaging 117.2 points during their six-game run.

The Hawks on Friday welcomed back forward Paul Millsap, who had missed the previous five games with a right knee contusion. Millsap scored a team-high 16 points for Atlanta, which fell behind by 14 at halftime after getting outscored by 13 in the second quarter.

"We got away from what we've been doing," Millsap said. "It's kind of tough to lose that discipline, especially when you're on the road."

One similarity between these clubs is how they pass the ball. Atlanta is first in assists per game with 25.2 while Los Angeles is third at 24.4.

It's the direct result of Wake Forest products Paul and Jeff Teague of Atlanta at point guard. Paul leads the NBA with 11.0 assists per game while Teague is eighth at 6.9.

Atlanta holds a three-game lead for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference despite losing 13 of 14.

Hawks forward Kyle Korver's league-record 127-game streak with at least one 3-pointer ended in Wednesday's loss at Portland. He could be tested in this one since Los Angeles is limiting opponents to an NBA-low 32.6 percent on 3-pointers.

Millsap scored 25 and Korver added 23 in the Hawks' 107-97 home win over the Clippers on Dec. 4. Atlanta, however, had a healthy Al Horford then and he's out for the season with a torn right pectoral muscle.
