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.
WASHINGTON: GUARDS: Late last year, JOHN WALL finally started to fulfill his promising talent. He got wherever he wanted on the court, and the Wizards were very tough to guard with all the shooters surrounding him . . . BRADLEY BEAL and Wall should mesh beautifully. Beal is a potentially elite shooter, and he rebounds very well for a guard . . . ERIC MAYNOR is fully healthy again after tearing his ACL two seasons ago. He can play some alongside Wall, but mostly he'll be the league's best back-up point guard again . . . GLEN RICE JR. doesn't shoot it nearly as well as his father, but he's an athlete who could break into the rotation down the line . . . GARRETT TEMPLE is insurance in case Wall or Maynor goes down. FORWARDS: The Wizards need NENÊ’S low post offense. It seems inevitable that they'll have to cap his minutes . . . OTTO PORTER is likely to step into the starting lineup early on. They need his defense, as he can guard twos through fours . . . MARTELL WEBSTER will platoon with Porter, providing another outstanding shooter for Wall to feed . . . TREVOR ARIZA is playing out the string on an untradeable deal . . . TREVOR BOOKER has some use as a screener and low-post banger, but not much else . . . AL HARRINGTON may be inefficient, but he can score points in a hurry and is a decent defender'JAN VESELY is still trying to figure out the NBA, though it's too early to give up on his athleticism . . . CHRIS SINGLETON can defend, but he's no more than a garbage-time player due to his atrocious offense. CENTERS: EMEKA OKAFOR may be absurdly overpaid, but he's settled in as a passable starter who helps defensively and doesn't hurt on offense. He'll also miss the beginning of the season with a herniated disc . . . With Okafor's deal expiring at the end of the year, KEVIN SERAPHIN is auditioning to be Washington's center of the future. After showing promise two seasons ago, he was a disaster last season.

(CORRECTS to eighth place in 9th graph)

*Hawks-Wizards Preview* =======================


Atlanta (31-40) at Washington (36-35), 8:00 p.m. EDT

With their first playoff appearance in six years all but assured, the Washington Wizards may have gotten complacent during a rough stretch - then they knocked off the Eastern Conference's top team.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks could jeopardize their chances at a seventh straight postseason berth if their slide continues.

The Wizards (37-35) are 1 1/2 games behind Brooklyn for fifth place, but with 7 1/2 games between them and ninth-place New York, they look set to make the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

Still, they dropped four of five from March 18-26, including losses to non-contending Denver and Sacramento squads. But after letting opponents shoot 47.3 percent during that five-game stretch, they held Indiana to 35.4 percent shooting in a 91-78 home victory Friday.

John Wall scored 20 while Marcin Gortat contributed 17 points and 12 rebounds. The Pacers had been responsible for two of Washington's three 20-plus point defeats this season.

"Our intensity level for 48 minutes had waned," coach Randy Wittman said of his team's previous slump. "And we'd lost that edge a little bit, in terms of we waited until we got down before we really played with effort and intensity."

Even though the Wizards appeared to turn themselves around Friday, they'd surely like to see Bradley Beal snap out of a brief funk. He had seven points on 2-of-13 shooting against Indiana after going 3 for 11 with eight points in Wednesday's loss to Phoenix.

Washington needs a win Saturday for its first season series victory over the Hawks since 2006-07. The Wizards had dropped 18 of 19 in the series before winning three of the last four, including two of three this season. They shot a combined 25 of 48 from 3-point range in those two victories, claiming a 114-97 win in Atlanta on Feb. 19 in the most recent matchup.

The Hawks (31-40) sit in eighth place with a two-game edge over New York, but have lost five straight for their third five-plus game losing streak since the beginning of February.

Atlanta, which is tied with Phoenix and Portland for the league lead with 9.5 made 3-pointers per game, is averaging 90.8 points and 6.4 made 3s during the slide. Kyle Korver - who averages 2.7 per game and shoots an NBA-best 48.6 percent from 3-point range - has missed all five games due to back spasms and his status for Saturday is unknown.

Jeff Teague tallied 22 points Thursday after going scoreless a night earlier in Minnesota, but the Hawks were 4 of 22 from beyond the arc in a 100-85 home loss to Portland.

"The whole group, in trying times and trying circumstances, has given a lot. Jeff Teague's energy throughout the game allowed us to be close. We're finding ourselves," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We need to be disciplined and focused. In those stretches where we're not, it can hurt us and it can bite us."

Top scorer Paul Millsap, a 45.4 percent shooter on the season, is 29 of 73 from the field (39.7 percent) during the losing streak. He's posted a double-double in five of his last six games versus Washington.

Wall has averaged 20.0 points and 11.7 assists in the teams' first three matchups.
