KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.
BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS will surely take on more of a distributor role this year, but he's still this team's best option from three-point range, as well . . . JOE JOHNSON started to break down last season, so along with fewer shots (with the upgrade to the rest of the roster), he figures to play fewer regular-season minutes as well . . . JASON TERRY is clearly in the decline phase of his career, but is still the top scoring option among Brooklyn's second unit . . . ALAN ANDERSON gives them another shooter off the bench . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON steps into the back-up point guard spot vacated by C.J. Watson. The injury-prone vet will be one of the more rarely used back-up PGs . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR will be a non-factor. FORWARDS: PAUL PIERCE still has something left in the tank. While his athleticism is fading, he's still a cagey scorer who can also play some point forward to set up Williams . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO will be a Swiss army knife sixth man and should see plenty of starts as new head coach Jason Kidd rotates which veterans rest . . . REGGIE EVANS was retained for his rebounding ability and willingness to look ridiculous while flopping . . . ANDRAY BLATCHE will continue to settle in as a second-unit big. He's a name to remember for the future, as Kevin Garnett doesn't have much left in the tank . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC will be a seldom-used option as a stretch four . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA is still years away from contributing, and the influx of veterans will further delay his development. CENTERS: Last year did a lot to assuage durability concerns for BROOK LOPEZ. He's highly skilled, and he may be forced to grab more rebounds now that Reggie Evans is on the second unit . . . KEVIN GARNETT will start at power forward. He's still an effective pick-and-pop shooter and pick-and-roll defender, but he'll have to rest often during the regular season . . . MASON PLUMLEE is in no position to help this season.

(ADDS Garnett missing ninth straight game)

*Suns-Nets Preview* ===================

By KEVIN CHROUST STATS Writer

Phoenix (38-28) at Brooklyn (33-31), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Phoenix Suns are trying to move into a Western Conference playoff position, and their chances of doing so seem better with a consistent Gerald Green.

They'll go for their third straight win Monday night in Brooklyn as Green tries to string together consecutive solid performances after overcoming a shooting slump.

Green's 28-point performance in Sunday's 121-113 win in Toronto put an end to a two-game stretch in which he scored 12 points on 6-of-23 shooting. The first of those came when Eric Bledsoe returned from a 33-game absence, and Green has returned to the bench for the last two.

"He came in (Saturday) to practice, worked on his shots and he told us all he was back from his little mini-vacation," coach Jeff Hornacek said after the win. "When Gerald plays like that, he gets unstoppable. He can make all kinds of shots and I think our guys feed off that when he's rolling."

The Suns (38-28) improved to 6-0 when Green scores 28 points or more and will now try to complete a perfect three-game road trip.

"We feel like we didn't play the way we wanted to in Boston (Friday night) but came away with the win," Green told the team's official website. "Tonight I just wanted to be aggressive. I've felt the last two games I've kind of been floating. My teammates have had confidence in me all year, so it's easy to go out there and play when you have a group of guys who believe in you. I love this team and I love the way we're playing right now."

They'll try to use that momentum to snap a four-game losing streak against the Nets, including a 100-98 overtime loss on Nov. 15 in the desert.

Brook Lopez, now lost for the season due to injury, scored a game-high 27 points in a game where the Nets lost Deron Williams early in the first quarter to an ankle injury. Green had eight points in 18 minutes off the bench.

Though Brooklyn has won the last two meetings by two points apiece, Goran Dragic has averaged 25.0 points and 11.0 assists.

The Nets (33-31) have a more secure playoff outlook, though they did miss out on a shot to pass Washington for the No. 5 spot in the East on Saturday. Brooklyn led by 10 early in the fourth quarter but was outscored 29-12 the rest of the way in a 101-94 loss to the Wizards.

"We got great looks, it just didn't go down," coach Jason Kidd said. "We executed plays, I think we might have gotten a little frustrated on the defensive end, when we were giving up shots, and that led to the carry-over on the offensive end."

Reserve Marcus Thornton scored a team-high 19 points and went 5 of 6 from 3-point range as the Nets remained hot from long range. They went 11 of 21 and have made 48.4 percent from 3-point range in their last four games.

Williams struggled to find his shot again, however, and is 6 for 22 in his last two games.

Despite the loss, the Nets are 7-2 since Feb. 27 and seem to have stabilized a season that got off to a rocky start.

"We had these visions of playing like this before the season started," Paul Pierce said. "Unfortunately it took longer than we expected, but I'm glad we were able to turn it around at this point in the season at the right time."

Brooklyn, 10-3 against the West since Jan. 2, will be without Kevin Garnett for a ninth straight game due to back spasms.
