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.
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.

*Pelicans-Hawks Preview* ========================


New Orleans (27-40) at Atlanta (31-35), 7:30 p.m. EDT

As Paul Millsap has recaptured his All-Star form, the Atlanta Hawks have gotten healthier while making a complete turnaround following a nightmare stretch.

Now Millsap and the Hawks will try to continue their playoff push in a potentially difficult matchup should Anthony Davis return for the visiting New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night.

Since losing 14 of 15 while many key players missed time due to injury, the Hawks (31-35) have bounced back to win a season-high five straight with their roster as close to full strength as possible over the past two weeks.

Millsap, who recently missed five games because of a knee contusion, posted his first career triple-double Tuesday with 19 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in a 118-113 overtime win over Toronto.

The veteran forward has scored 22.2 per game and hit 8 of 19 from 3-point range during the win streak. He's averaged 23.7 points and 10.0 boards while shooting 55.6 percent over three straight double-doubles against New Orleans (27-40) dating to his time with Utah.

Although the month-long tailspin threatened their bid to make the playoffs, the Hawks now seem back on track and have a four-game lead over surging New York for the Eastern Conference's final spot.

"We're not going to make any excuses," Millsap said. "We've just got to push forward and try to win some games."

As solid as Millsap has been, Davis has been better and he's expected to return after sitting out Wednesday's game against Toronto with an upper respiratory infection. Davis is enjoying the best stretch of his two NBA seasons with 32.3 points and 14.3 rebounds per game over his last six, most recently posting career highs of 40 points and 21 boards in Sunday's win over Boston.

Without Davis on Wednesday, New Orleans was outrebounded 48-34 and failed to hold a 14-point lead in a 107-100 home loss to the Atlantic Division-leading Raptors.

"Obviously, with a guy that can rebound like Anthony, it's hard to make up for that," rookie center Jeff Withey said.

Davis led the Pelicans with 27 points and 10 rebounds in a 105-100 home win over Atlanta on Feb. 5 during the Hawks' extended slump. Millsap had 26 points and 10 boards while Jeff Teague handed out 13 assists - his most in 2014 - but scored 11 points on 5-of-14 shooting.

Teague, who sat out one game during the 1-14 stretch because of an ankle sprain, matched his career high with 34 points Tuesday as the Hawks overcame an early 13-point deficit. The point guard has averaged 25.0 points and made 8 of 13 from beyond the arc in his last five home games.

While Atlanta has won each of its last three home games by five points, the Pelicans are coming off a 3-3 homestand and looking to avoid their 10th loss in 12 road games.

Tyreke Evans has played well since recently moving into New Orleans' lineup, averaging 23.1 points in seven starts this month.

While the Pelicans have shot just 24.6 percent from beyond the arc over their last four games, the Hawks have limited opponents to 29.0 percent in their last four.

New Orleans has won five of the past seven meetings.
