SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: GREIVIS VASQUEZ seems to have the edge in the point guard battle. He's a pass-first floor general who fits better in a lineup full of chuckers . . . ISAIAH THOMAS will have a major role whether he starts or not. He can score, and while his lack of size is a defensive liability, he makes up for it with harassing on-ball pressure . . . MARCUS THORNTON will eventually be relegated to a smaller role, but the gunning combo guard will get his minutes until Ben McLemore is ready . . . BEN MCLEMORE takes a lot of heat for his lack of assertiveness, but he can knock down corner threes and is an outstanding athlete, which is enough to make him a fine role player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE is kicking around as trade bait . . . Second-rounder RAY MCCALLUM should earn a bench role.FORWARDS: With his potential to be a solid defender, JASON THOMPSON is likely to retain his starting job. He's an afterthought on offense, though . . . LUC RICHARD MBAH A MOUTE seems like a natural to slide into the starting lineup. He can defend multiple spots and doesn't need touches on a team of players who do . . . CARL LANDRY could unseat Thompson. We see him in the same kind of bench role he had in Golden State. He's very good offensively and a relentless rebounder, but will struggle defensively against top-line forwards . . . JOHN SALMONS avoided the amnesty axe, though his role will likely be reduced again . . . Stretch four PATRICK PATTERSON is on the fringe of this rotation . . . Streaky shooting should have TRAVIS OUTLAW in and out of the rotation. CENTERS: The new regime of head coach Michael Malone will try again with DEMARCUS COUSINS, who continues to show flashes of dominance but too often plays and acts like a head case. He's playing for a contract, which would presumably have him on his best behavior . . . CHUCK HAYES will continue to be a second-unit glue guy at the four and five.
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.

*Kings-Mavericks Preview* =========================


Sacramento (25-46) at Dallas (43-30), 8:30 p.m. EDT

The Dallas Mavericks' playoff push has been stuck in neutral lately despite the team being in the midst of its longest homestand in franchise history.

The Mavericks have split their first six of eight consecutive games at American Airlines Center and blew a sizable lead in the fourth quarter of their latest game there. They'll try to bounce Saturday night by adding to their remarkable home dominance over the Sacramento Kings.

With its inconsistent efforts at home, Dallas (43-30) has fallen from seventh in the Western Conference and 1 1/2 games in front of the final playoff berth to one-half game behind Memphis. The Grizzlies are idle Saturday after losing for just the sixth time in 22 games Friday.

The Suns, one game ahead of the Mavericks, are also idle after winning their sixth in a row.

"It's basically the next game becomes the most important game of the year," coach Rick Carlisle said. "That's just how it is going to be, every one down the stretch."

The Mavericks missed a chance to keep pace in that race Thursday by squandering an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter of a 109-103 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

"We didn't get the stops we needed in the clutch," forward Jae Crowder said. "We knew they were going to make one more run late. We didn't get the stops we needed to close the game."

The Mavericks kept the Kings in check long enough Jan. 31 to rally from a 14-point deficit in the third quarter for a 107-103 win. Dirk Nowitzki led the way with 34 points in Dallas' 19th consecutive home victory against Sacramento (25-47).

The Mavericks have won 16 of 18 overall matchups and split this season's series. They fell 112-97 in Sacramento on Dec. 9, but the Kings haven't won in Dallas since Feb. 27, 2003.

Only Golden State's 30-game skid in San Antonio is longer among the NBA's active road losing streaks against one opponent.

Sacramento enters this game having dropped eight of 11 and six of seven away from home. The Kings played for the second straight night without point guard Isaiah Thomas (bruised right quad) in a 94-81 loss at Oklahoma City on Friday.

Leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins, 10th in the league with 22.2 points per game, finished with four on 2-of-8 shooting. Rudy Gay, averaging 19.8, had seven while missing eight of 11 shots.

"The toughest position to lose is your point guard, just because he runs your team, and there were times tonight where obviously, we didn't look like an organized basketball team," coach Michael Malone said.

Cousins had 32 points and 19 rebounds in the win over the Mavericks in December but sat out the loss in Dallas because of a sprained left ankle. Gay had 35 points in that road defeat, his second-most in any game this season.

Thomas was averaging 24.0 points and 6.3 assists in his last three matchups with Dallas, but his status is unclear for this season. Derrick Williams had a career-high 31 points in the home victory over the Mavericks but might sit out again with an illness.

"We don't have a lot of bodies, so the guys who are able to play need to play with more of a sense of urgency and greater effort," Malone said.

Dallas' Monta Ellis is averaging 23.3 points in his last three games against Sacramento.
