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.
DALLAS: GUARDS: MONTA ELLIS slides into the 2-guard spot vacated by O.J. Mayo. He should benefit from the attention Dirk Nowitzki gets and from playing alongside a pure point guard . . . JOSE CALDERON is a defensive liability, but he should have the Mavs' offense running more smoothly . . . VINCE CARTER has become one of the league's better sixth men. He'll see plenty of minutes for a team that figures to frequently play small ball . . . When healthy, DEVIN HARRIS should be the defensive side of a platoon with Calderon . . . Israeli star GAL MEKEL should be able to help at both guard spots on a part-time basis . . . WAYNE ELLINGTON has yet to prove he can do anything with second-unit minutes . . . After breaking his foot, SHANE LARKIN is looking at a redshirt year. FORWARDS: Last season was a bit of a lost season for DIRK NOWITZKI, who missed the beginning of the year after knee surgery and didn't get going until late. Health, as well as the arrival of a true point guard in Jose Calderon, should allow him to bounce back nicely . . . SHAWN MARION had a nice resurgence last season, and he should have at least one good season left as he plays for another contract . . . JAE CROWDER has a chance to establish himself as the heir apparent to Marion. He's a hustle guy right now, and whether he can be more will depend on whether he develops his jump shot . . . RICKY LEDO was a favorite NBA draft sleeper for many experts. But while the skilled wing has NBA talent, he also has a reputation for being a bad seed. Ledo is almost certainly headed to the D-League for now. CENTERS: SAMUEL DALEMBERT is a sad consolation prize in the Dwight Howard derby. He'll likely step in as a starter . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT has never been able to overcome injuries. He could end up splitting time with Dalembert . . . DEJUAN BLAIR will provide energy and offense at the four and five . . . BERNARD JAMES should continue to develop as a rim protector.

*Clippers-Mavericks Preview* ============================


Los Angeles (50-22) at Dallas (43-29), 8:30 p.m. EDT

Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks continue to fight for their playoff lives.

They're surely preparing for another tough battle against the Pacific Division leaders.

The Mavericks try to pick up a rare win over the visiting Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night.

Dallas (43-29) has won five of seven after getting past Oklahoma City 128-119 in overtime Tuesday. Nowitzki led the way with 32 points and 10 rebounds, posting his second 30-point effort this month.

"His emotion and his attitude carried the team. He's a prideful guy. I think great players are great for a reason," coach Rick Carlisle said of Nowitzki. "Obviously, we need the win. I'm just real proud of the way the guys battled the whole way through it."

The Mavericks, who have seen three of their last four games go to OT, are tied with Phoenix for eighth place in the Western Conference.

"I don't know if we should be thinking too much ahead, I think we got a tough 10 games left," said Jose Calderon, whose 22 points were one off his season high. "For right now, we're just thinking next game. It's another big game for us, and we just got to keep working."

Dallas now tries to solve the Clippers, who have taken six of eight in the series, including both meetings this season behind remarkable fourth-quarter comebacks. Los Angeles outscored the Mavericks 16-2 over the final 3:51 in a 119-112 road win Jan. 3, then erased a 17-point deficit with 4 1/2 minutes to go in a 129-127 victory Jan. 15.

"It was like a playoff game the last three or four minutes. Everybody was mouthing back and forth and getting techs, and it became a brawl out there," Mavericks forward Shawn Marion said afterward. "But if you let that take away from what your main focus is - executing at both ends of the floor - then it's going to take you out of your game."

The Clippers (50-22) had won 13 of 14 before opening a five-game road trip with Wednesday's 98-96 loss at New Orleans. Jamal Crawford scored 31 points off the bench but missed a couple late 3s, including one as time expired.

"We didn't execute the play," coach Doc Rivers said of the final seconds. "If we had won, I would have taken it, but sometimes the basketball gods punish you for messing around and I though that's what we did."

Chris Paul dished out 12 assists, but he was held to two points while shooting a career-worst 0 of 12.

"From here on out its just about winning. If I go 0 for 15 or 0 for 20 and we win, I could care less," said Paul, whose team sits 5 1/2 games ahead of Golden State for first place in the Pacific. "Like I've said in the past it's more than this game. It's about playing the right way going into the playoffs."

Los Angeles shot 41.3 percent against the Pelicans, dropping to 0-11 when it's below 42.0 percent.

"There is a little bit of concern, just our sense of urgency," said Blake Griffin, who has scored at least 20 points in a career-high 30 straight games. "But at the same time this is the NBA, and the best thing about that is that you get another chance to prove yourself."

The Clippers are 4-8 when closing back-to-backs on the road. They are averaging 102.4 points in those games, 5.0 less than their season mark.
