KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
HOUSTON: GUARDS: JAMES HARDEN is a franchise player, and as one of the league's elite pick-and-roll threats, he and Dwight Howard have the potential to be dominant . . . Trade rumors will continue to circle JEREMY LIN, who isn't an off-the-ball threat to fit alongside Harden. He is, however, clearly a starting-caliber point guard . . . PATRICK BEVERLEY really shined in back-up minutes last year, and he's part of the reason that Lin is expendable. He's strong defensively, and he proved capable of running the second unit. He'll be one of the league's top back-up PGs if Lin stays . . . Rookie combo guard ISAIAH CANAAN will be developed as a spot-up shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a roster filler . . . AARON BROOKS is around as a reclamation project . . . RONNIE BREWER provides a much-needed athletic perimeter defender. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS is an elite role player. He entered the league with the reputation as a pure athlete, but it's his ability to knock down the corner three that's made him so valuable in Houston . . . GREG SMITH looks like another great find for the Rockets. He's an athletic banger who can allow Dwight Howard to roam a bit on defense . . . DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS showed flashes as a rookie, but the stretch four looks like a situational role player for the foreseeable future . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA will lend a veteran presence to the second unit . . . Versatile TERRENCE JONES could be in for more minutes as the Rockets look for the right role players . . . OMRI CASSPI might be getting his last chance at the NBA. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD should be much happier in Houston, though the Rockets still have to convince him that he can dominate as a pick-and-roll player. He should make everyone forget about his season with the Lakers . . . The fact is OMER ASIK just doesn't fit alongside Howard. But if he stays somewhat happy in Houston, he could be a valuable second-unit player . . . MARCUS CAMBY has latched on to chase a ring.

*Clippers-Rockets Preview* ==========================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Los Angeles (51-22) at Houston (49-22), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The surging Houston Rockets haven't skipped a beat since Dwight Howard's return, extending their lengthy home winning streak in the process.

They'll put that run to the test as they try to avoid getting swept in the season series by the team directly in front of them in the Western Conference.

Houston goes for a 12th straight home victory and looks to draw even with the Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles Clippers for third place in the West on Saturday night.

In Howard's second game back after missing three with a left ankle strain, he finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds in a 120-98 home win over Philadelphia on Thursday.

James Harden led the way with 26 points, 10 boards and 10 assists for his second career triple-double as the Rockets (49-22) won their fifth straight and dealt the 76ers their NBA record-tying 26th consecutive loss.

"We did a great job of coming out tonight and taking care of business," said Harden, who has averaged 31.3 points while hitting 12 of 23 from 3-point range in his last three games.

Even with Howard missing the first three victories, the Rockets have averaged 118.2 points on 52.0 percent shooting - 41.1 percent from beyond the arc - during the five-game win streak. They've also put up 118.0 points per game with roughly those same shooting percentages over their last nine at Toyota Center.

Houston has won by an average of 14.6 points during the home win streak, the franchise's longest since a 12-game run in 2008-09.

The Rockets will try to keep it going versus a Los Angeles team they've struggled against in recent seasons. The Clippers (51-22) have won eight of the past nine meetings, including three victories by an average of 13.3 points this season.

Closing in on a second straight division title, the Clippers are chasing Oklahoma City for the West's second spot but sit just a game ahead of fourth-place Houston.

In the second game of a five-game trip Thursday, Los Angeles rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to snap a two-game road slide with a 109-103 win over Dallas.

Chris Paul had 31 points after missing all 12 of his shots in a 98-96 loss at New Orleans a night earlier. Blake Griffin finished with 18 points and 13 rebounds, while DeAndre Jordan scored 16 with 15 boards.

"We knew it was going to be a playoff-type game," Paul said. "They're not just playing for their playoff lives; we're trying to gear up for the playoffs, too."

The All-Star point guard had 23 points and a season-high 17 assists in a 137-118 home win over Houston on Nov. 4. Griffin then finished with 23 points and 16 boards, while Howard countered with 23 and 11 in the Clippers' 101-93 home win Feb. 26.

In the only other meeting at Toyota Center on Nov. 9, Los Angeles outscored Houston 61-39 in the second half en route to a 107-94 victory.

The Rockets' Patrick Beverley had 19 points in that contest, but he's likely out for the season after tearing his right meniscus Thursday. He's expected to be replaced by Jeremy Lin, who has averaged 14.3 points in 25 starts.

Harden has scored 15.0 per game while missing 17 of 19 from 3-point range in the season series.
