CLEVELAND: GUARDS: KYRIE IRVING is the real deal, a heady playmaker and near-elite shooter. He should emerge as the NBA's next great point guard this season . . . Rookie DION WAITERS has a chance to step right into the starting lineup. He can get to the rim and generally makes good choices withthe ball. The only thing holding him back is defense after playing college ball in Syracuse's lazy zone . . . C.J. MILES will reportedly start at either the two or three spot, but he really needs to find the range on his shot again for him to stick in the starting lineup . . . Gunning combo guard DANIEL GIBSON is looking like he'll be their sixth man . . . The Cavs are still trying to figure out their second unit. JEREMY PARGO figures to be Irving's backup, but DONALD SLOAN is a better defender and could eventually pass him for this role, which doesn't mean many minutes unless Irving gets injured again. FORWARDS: TRISTAN THOMPSON is trying to add a perimeter shot to his repertoire. Don't count on him becoming David West, but he should improve offensively to go along with his rebounding and shot-blocking . . . ALONZO GEE returns as the starting small forward, excelling on the defensive end, but without a polished enough offensive game to earn 35 minutes per night . . . OMRI CASSPI was in and out of the rotation late in the year as he battled knee issues. It's getting close to make-or-break time for him . . . JON LEUER is a solid stretch four who has a real chance at a rotation spot . . . SAMARDO SAMUELS reportedly dropped some weight in his effort to find some minutes . . . LUKE WALTON is an unofficial member of the coaching staff . . . Undrafted rookie KEVIN JONES could make some noise with his work on the offensive boards . . . LUKE HARANGODY is more of a D-League talent. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO's wrist should be 100 percent, and Sideshow Anderson should be the same relentless, double-double threat he's always been . . . Rookie TYLER ZELLER is a 7-footer with some nice offensive skills -- he can knock down a jump shot in the half court, and run the floor. He'll struggle to defend in space, but made a living drawing charges at UNC, and should be able to play 20+ minutes as a rookie.
NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: This offense will belong to ERIC GORDON. He'll get over the fact that the Hornets matched his offer from Phoenix, and as long as his surgically-repaired knee holds up, he's one of the most complete young scorers in the NBA . . . The Hornets reached for AUSTIN RIVERS with the 10th pick because Monty Williams wants to coach him and thinks he can be an NBA point guard. Rivers has the handle, but his athleticism is ordinary and, more importantly, he has never shown a PG mentality at any level . . . GREIVIS VASQUEZ is the closest thing to a true point guard on this roster. He'll see solid minutes assuming Rivers' adjustment is a tough one . . . Well-rounded ROGER MASON JR. will also provide point guard depth . . . XAVIER HENRY hasn't lived up to his reputation as a shooter, but the Hornets can be patient with him . . . Rookie BRIAN ROBERTS has had a strong enough preseason to likely earn a roster spot. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS should step right in as a starter. His offensive game is further along than he gets credit for, and on the defensive end he's an absolute force from the basket out to the perimeter . . . He'll probably miss having Dwight Howard drawing in defenses, but RYAN ANDERSON has always been a very good three-point shooter. He and Davis are unique enough talents to share the court even if they're both power forwards . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU made some strides on the defensive end late last season, which is what will get him minutes under Williams. He's underwhelming on the offensive end . . . If HAKIM WARRICK couldn't succeed as Steve Nash's pick-and-roll partner, it seems unlikely he'll ever help in New Orleans . . . Rookie DARIUS MILLER is looking to establish some kind of role with the team . . . LANCE THOMAS is doubtful to earn a salary to pay off his jewelry debts. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ has always had the ability to protect the rim and does a decent job in space. Look for him to end up grabbing the bulk of minutes in the middle . . . JASON SMITH gives the Hornets a more offensive-minded option off the bench.

*Cavaliers-Hornets Preview* ===========================


Cleveland (22-49) at New Orleans (25-48), 6:00 p.m. EDT

After a strong start to a difficult home stretch, the New Orleans Hornets couldn't meet the challenge in their last two games.

Things aren't likely to be as tough in the finale Sunday night against the injury-plagued Cleveland Cavaliers, who are mired in their worst losing streak of the season.

The Hornets (25-48) lost to Golden State and beat Boston to open this season-high seven-game homestand before facing four straight games against four of the league's top six teams record-wise. That stretch began with victories over Memphis and Denver, which had entered with a 15-game winning streak.

New Orleans, however, couldn't keep its string of upsets going, falling to the Los Angeles Clippers and Miami by a combined 33 points in its last two.

The Southwest Division-worst Hornets appeared to be in the wrong place at the wrong time against the league-best Heat on Friday. After having its 27-game win streak stopped two days earlier, Miami made 60.9 percent from the field and 14 for 27 from 3-point range on the way to a 108-89 victory.

"We could have pressed up in our man defense a little more," said forward Ryan Anderson, who led New Orleans with 20 points. "We could have helped a little bit better."

The Hornets had allowed 85.0 points per game on 41.7 percent shooting over their three-game winning streak before giving up averages of 106.5 points and 53.5 percent in their last two losses.

They appear to have a decent chance at tightening things up against a Cleveland team that has struggled on offense lately without its starting backcourt - and top two scorers.

Star point guard Kyrie Irving (bruised shoulder) and Dion Waiters (sore knee) both remain sidelined, with no clear timetable for their return. Irving and Waiters combined for 51 points on 19-of-32 shooting in a 105-100 home win over New Orleans on Feb. 20.

The Cavaliers (22-49), who have the third-worst record in the East, are 5-17 without Irving this season.

The injuries seem to have caught up with the team offensively. Cleveland has averaged 85.7 points on 41.1 percent shooting - including 15 for 55 from 3-point range - in its last three games.

"I can't worry about the guys who aren't playing," coach Byron Scott said. "The biggest thing with us is we need six or seven guys to play really well."

C.J. Miles scored 19 points and Tyler Zeller added 14 and 10 rebounds Friday, but Cleveland dropped its season-high seventh straight with a 97-87 loss to Philadelphia.

It doesn't figure to get any easier for the Cavaliers on Sunday considering they've lost 12 of 13 road contests against West opponents.

The Hornets, however, may be short-handed as well. Point guard Greivis Vasquez, who has missed two of the last three games with an ankle injury, is expected to be a game-time decision.

Brian Roberts started those two games in place of Vasquez and scored 13 points in each, but he had 18 assists in the win over Denver and only five Friday.

The Hornets have won four of five at home in this series.
