BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS will surely take on more of a distributor role this year, but he's still this team's best option from three-point range, as well . . . JOE JOHNSON started to break down last season, so along with fewer shots (with the upgrade to the rest of the roster), he figures to play fewer regular-season minutes as well . . . JASON TERRY is clearly in the decline phase of his career, but is still the top scoring option among Brooklyn's second unit . . . ALAN ANDERSON gives them another shooter off the bench . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON steps into the back-up point guard spot vacated by C.J. Watson. The injury-prone vet will be one of the more rarely used back-up PGs . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR will be a non-factor. FORWARDS: PAUL PIERCE still has something left in the tank. While his athleticism is fading, he's still a cagey scorer who can also play some point forward to set up Williams . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO will be a Swiss army knife sixth man and should see plenty of starts as new head coach Jason Kidd rotates which veterans rest . . . REGGIE EVANS was retained for his rebounding ability and willingness to look ridiculous while flopping . . . ANDRAY BLATCHE will continue to settle in as a second-unit big. He's a name to remember for the future, as Kevin Garnett doesn't have much left in the tank . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC will be a seldom-used option as a stretch four . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA is still years away from contributing, and the influx of veterans will further delay his development. CENTERS: Last year did a lot to assuage durability concerns for BROOK LOPEZ. He's highly skilled, and he may be forced to grab more rebounds now that Reggie Evans is on the second unit . . . KEVIN GARNETT will start at power forward. He's still an effective pick-and-pop shooter and pick-and-roll defender, but he'll have to rest often during the regular season . . . MASON PLUMLEE is in no position to help this season.
PHILADELPHIA: GUARDS: Welcome to Tankadelphia. MICHAEL CARTER-WILLIAMS will be handed the reigns at the point, and has the size and savvy to create some offense. But a work-in-progress jumper and too many risky passes will lead to plenty of lost possessions . . . The Sixers would love to unload perennially disappointing ex-No. 2 pick EVAN TURNER. He's yet to develop a jump shot, and while he'll start for a laughably thin Philly team, he looks more and more like a second-unit player . . . JAMES ANDERSON could end up playing a lot of minutes off the bench, simply because the Sixers don't have enough NBA-caliber players . . . JASON RICHARDSON will miss at least half the season after major knee surgery. He may never contribute in the NBA again'TONY WROTEN could see the floor plenty as a high-upside player who must cut down on his turnovers and improve his jump shot. FORWARDS: THADDEUS YOUNG will likely step up as the No. 1 option, and he very well may be the only player on this team that would make a rotation of a playoff contender. We'll see what he can do with defenses focused on stopping him . . . LAVOY ALLEN will be leaned on for heavy minutes as one of their few proven players . . . ARNETT MOULTRIE might end up with a very big role this year, as the Sixers are especially lacking post players. He at least rebounds and gets in people's way defensively . . . Philly will try its hand with ROYCE WHITE, who has plenty of talent but just as much baggage. He and the Rockets couldn't see eye-to-eye with how to manage his anxiety issues . . . TIM OHLBRECHT might actually see the court on this team. CENTERS: SPENCER HAWES should start at center, especially early. His mid-range shooting makes him one of the few offensive options on this team . . . Coming off a torn ACL, NERLENS NOEL probably won't be ready until December. He should contribute as a rim protector and rebounder, but will be pushed around and doesn't have much on offense . . . KWAME BROWN is waiting for his contract to be bought out.

*Nets-76ers Preview* ====================


Brooklyn (40-34) at Philadelphia (16-59), 7:30 p.m. EDT

While they've rolled to the longest home winning streak in franchise history, the Brooklyn Nets have had a difficult time pulling out road victories of late.

The Nets appear to have a strong opportunity to change that trend in Philadelphia.

Brooklyn should have Kevin Garnett back as it continues its pursuit of home-court advantage in the first round while trying to avoid a fourth straight road loss Saturday night against the 76ers.

Shaun Livingston finished with 23 points while Mirza Teletovic had 20 and hit six of the team's 15 3-pointers Friday in a 116-104 victory over Detroit that extended Brooklyn's home winning streak to 15 games.

"You feel comfortable when you have dinner at your house, rather than when you go to someone else's house and don't know what they're going to cook," said Paul Pierce, who added 17 points.

Given their dominance at Barclays Center, it may be critical for the playoff-bound Nets (41-34) to gain home-court advantage in the postseason. However, they're still 2 1/2 games back of Atlantic Division-leading Toronto and fourth-place Chicago.

Now Brooklyn will try to reverse its recent fortunes away from home as it embarks on a three-game swing that concludes with stops at Miami and Orlando.

After dropping overtime contests at New Orleans and Charlotte on their previous trip, the Nets suffered their worst defeat in more than a month Wednesday in a 110-81 loss at New York. Brooklyn has allowed an average of 93.9 points during its home winning streak, but has given up 111.7 points per game on its road slide.

The Nets should have a good chance to end those struggles, but Philadelphia (17-59) has won two of four since tying an NBA record with 26 straight losses.

The 76ers had averaged just 95.2 points while dropping 28 of 29 before Michael Carter-Williams had 24 points Friday and Henry Sims added a career-high 24 in a 111-102 win at Boston.

Philadelphia also has given the Nets a difficult time in the last two meetings, though those came before Evan Turner was traded to the Pacers. Turner scored 29 - including the game-winning jumper as time expired - and Thaddeus Young added 25 in a 121-120 overtime home win Dec. 20 as Brooklyn played without Kevin Garnett and Joe Johnson.

Garnett, however, could return Saturday after missing 19 games with a back injury.

"We'll see," coach Jason Kidd told the team's official website. "He felt better (Friday). We'll see how his plane ride goes and then we'll see in the morning how he feels. We would like to try to get him to go (Saturday), but it's up to him."

Carter-Williams had 21 points on Feb. 3 as the 76ers' comeback attempt came up short in a 108-102 loss in Brooklyn. They played without Carter-Williams due to a skin infection in a 130-94 road loss Dec. 16.

Johnson drilled a career-high 10 3-pointers on the way to a season-high 37 points in that contest for the Nets, who have hit 46 of 93 (49.5 percent) from beyond the arc in the season series.

Pierce has totaled 49 points for Brooklyn while sinking all 20 of his free-throw attempts in the last two matchups, while Deron Williams has averaged 22.2 points and 10.6 assists in his last five trips to Philadelphia.
