BROOKLYN: LAST SEASON: 42-40, lost in the first round of the playoffs.
COACH: Kenny Atkinson (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyrie Irving (23.8 ppg), G Caris LeVert (13.7 ppg), F Joe Harris (13.7 ppg), F Taurean Prince (13.5 ppg), C Jarrett Allen (10.9 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G D'Angelo Russell, F DeMarre Carroll, F Jared Dudley, F/C Ed Davis, G Allen Crabbe, G Shabazz Napier, F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
KEY ADDITIONS: F Kevin Durant, G Irving, C DeAndre Jordan, F Prince, F Wilson Chandler, G/F David Nwaba, G/F Garrett Temple PLAYER TO WATCH: Irving. An undeniable All-Star talent who now has to show he has the temperament to handle New York. He asked to be traded from Cleveland, then changed his mind after originally saying he planned to remain in Boston, where the Celtics were a disappointment last season and he acknowledged doing a poor job leading the team. He grew up in New Jersey and wanted to come back home, and now he has to perform.
OUTLOOK: The Nets don't expect Durant to play this season, so they remain a bit weak at the forward spot compared to the top teams in the Eastern Conference. That means it's possible they won't even improve off last season's surprising sixth-place finish. But even if they don't, they appear well set for the future.
PORTLAND: LAST SEASON: 53-29, lost 4-0 to Golden State in the Western Conference finals.
COACH: Terry Stotts (eighth season with Trail Blazers, 325-249; 12th season overall, 440-417).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Damian Lillard (25.8 ppg), G CJ McCollum (21.0), F Rodney Hood (11.2), F Zach Collins (8.6), C Hassan Whiteside (12.3 with Miami).
KEY LOSSES: F Al-Farouq Aminu, F Evan Turner, F Maurice Harkless, C Meyers Leonard.
KEY ADDITIONS: Whiteside, C Pau Gasol, F Anthony Tolliver, G Kent Bazemore.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Blazers will count on Whiteside at center while Jusuf Nurkic recovers from a broken leg he suffered during a game in March. Nurkic probably won't return until January, at the earliest. The Blazers added some insurance at the position by signing Pau Gasol, who is also making his way back from surgery. Portland will look to Zach Collins to take the next step in his third season in the league. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum form one of the best backcourt duos in the league.
OUTLOOK: In the loaded Western Conference, the revamped Trail Blazers, with a total of seven new players, will have to come together sooner rather than later. A key will be how Whiteside gels with the rest of the team. The 7-footer was acquired in a trade with the Miami, where his production fell off last season after three strong seasons. The Blazers will again emphasize defensive improvement going into the season, something Stotts has routinely preached each fall camp. Lillard signed a supermax extension in the offseason, and appears to be a Blazer for the long haul. Expectations are high for Portland after making the Western Conference finals last season, and players say they're not going to be satisfied with simply making the playoffs, the goal now is to go deep into the postseason.
Seeking first home win, Blazers welcome rested Nets

Two teams operating at less than full strength and now dealing with schedule adversity meet Friday night when the Brooklyn Nets visit the Portland Trail Blazers.

The matchup of a winless road team against a winless home team features a lot of missing pieces, including Kevin Durant, Wilson Chandler, Jusuf Nurkic, Zach Collins and Pau Gasol.

Nets center DeAndre Jordan likely will join that list after spraining his right ankle Monday against New Orleans. He's being listed as questionable, although Nets coach Kenny Atkinson has since said the club will "err on the side of caution" in determining when to return him to the lineup.

The Nets haven't played since Monday's home win over the Pelicans, plenty of time to pack for a nine-day, five-game Western swing. They've made just a pair of one-day trips so far, losing by one in overtime at Memphis and by four at Detroit.

Atkinson noted after the New Orleans win that his team would be in a "training-camp mode" with a three-day break between games.

"We definitely have some work to do," he assured reporters. "We have a long way to go."

Win or lose, Kyrie Irving has been pouring in points on a record-setting pace. He's totaled 222 points in seven games -- the most in franchise history for a player in his first seven games with the team.

If that distinction is to be extended to an eighth game, it'll have to come in a bit of a House of Horrors for Irving.

He's made six previous visits to Portland in his career (one with Boston, five with Cleveland) and won just once, averaging 19.0 points on just 38-percent shooting. Matched up most of the time with Portland star Damian Lillard, Irving has managed just 7-for-31 shooting (23 percent) on 3-pointers.

Lillard, meanwhile, has a pair of 5-for-10 efforts on 3-pointers among his last four head-to-heads with Irving in Portland. He's averaged 22.0 points over that stretch, which includes a 19-point, 12-assist double-double in their most recent duel out West last November.

Lillard rates among the NBA leaders in minutes, and that could be an issue in Friday's meeting, with the Trail Blazers having gone the distance in a 107-101 road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night.

Lillard played 38 minutes on the front end of the back-to-back and had 22 points.

Returning to Portland means getting a third opportunity at a first home win this season. The Trail Blazers have failed in their first two opportunities, losing to Denver and Philadelphia.

After reaching the Western Conference finals last season, the Trail Blazers underwent an inordinate number of changes in the offseason, especially in their front line, where Nurkic, Al-Farouq Aminu and Moe Harkless were the primary starters a year ago. Nurkic is still recovering from a gruesome leg injury suffered last season while Aminu went to Orlando in free agency and the Blazers traded Harkless to the Clippers.

The transition to Rodney Hood, Anthony Tolliver and Hassan Whiteside -- the latter two because of injuries to Zach Collins and Nurkic -- has not gone smoothly in the team's 3-5 start.

"It just takes a while," Portland coach Terry Stotts noted this week, echoing Atkinson's feelings. "I don't want to make an excuse, but it's just going to take a while for us to evolve and get better."
