INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.
PORTLAND: GUARDS: Portland will turn point guard duties over to rookie DAMIAN LILLARD. The leap from Big Sky Conference to NBA will be a big one, but Lillard is an efficient scorer who can manage the offense . . . WESLEY MATTHEWS is more of a glue guy. He can't create his own offense, but he can heat up as a streaky catch-and-shoot guy . . . RONNIE PRICE should emerge as Lillard's top backup, a role he's filled at numerous stops . . . Second-rounder WILL BARTON could emerge as a rotation player. He's a versatile wing who must prove he can play off the ball . . . SASHA PAVLOVIC will play both the two and three, and can still stroke it from long distance . . . NOLAN SMITH, a misstep of the last regime, is a fringe roster player . . . ELLIOT WILLIAMS, a defensive-minded combo guard, tore his Achilles in mid-September and expects to miss the entire season. FORWARDS: LaMARCUS ALDRIDGE had a couple of health scares over the past six months, but he should enter the season 100 percent. He's clearly Portland's best player . . . NICOLAS BATUM felt rightly disrespected by his secondary role in Portland. All signs point to a bigger role in 2012-13 . . . VICTOR CLAVER is an athletic scrapper who won't do much offensively even if he does get big minutes . . . JOEL FREELAND could become their first big man off the bench . . . JARED JEFFRIES is still relevant as a defensive specialist . . . The highlight of LUKE BABBITT's career might be that mention on Onion:Sportsdome. CENTERS: J.J. HICKSON is a black hole on offense and a liability on defense, but he can score and rebound, which is good enough to be the starting center in Portland's weak frontcourt . . . MEYERS LEONARD might not be quite ready for 30-plus minutes, but he'll have to learn on the fly due to Portland's lack of veteran bigs. He has some long-term upside as a 7-footer with some nice athleticism and touch inside 10 feet.

*Pacers-Trail Blazers Preview* ==============================


Indiana (26-16) at Portland (20-21), 10:00 p.m. EDT

Coach Frank Vogel want his Central Division-leading Indiana Pacers to be a better road team, and while they can't lift their record away from home above .500 during their trip, they can come awfully close.

Close hasn't been good enough of late for the slumping Portland Trail Blazers.

Indiana goes for a seventh straight victory over a Western Conference opponent while trying to hand the Blazers a seventh consecutive defeat Wednesday night.

The Pacers (26-16) are tied with Miami with an Eastern Conference-best 16-3 home record, but they owned a 9-13 mark outside Indianapolis before beginning a four-game trip with Monday's 82-81 victory over Memphis.

"We knew we had to turn things around," said George Hill, whose free throw with 1.3 seconds left was the difference. "Coach challenged us to be above a .500 road team, and it started with (Monday)."

Indiana, a 99-92 winner over Portland (20-21) on Dec. 5, is on its longest single-season run against West opponents since a nine-game stretch Jan. 28-March 17, 2004.

The Blazers have lost three times to East teams, including league-worst Washington on Monday, during their season-worst four-game skid at the Rose Garden. Their last 0-5 stretch at home spanned March 20-April 1, 2006.

Nicolas Batum had 12 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists for his first career triple-double, but it wasn't enough to help the Blazers avoid a 98-95 loss to the Wizards.

"We shouldn't be losing, especially at home," guard Wesley Matthews told the Blazers' official website. "We don't take anything away from these teams, but we're better than that."

The Blazers need to improve in close games. They've played in a franchise-record 10 straight contests decided by six points or fewer, and they've lost by a total of 28 since their last victory, 92-90 over the Heat at home Jan. 10.

"You don't see stretches like this," coach Terry Stotts said. "The one thing that hasn't wavered is that I like the way our team competes."

However, Stotts can't like his team's shooting. The Blazers, 10-0 when hitting 47.8 percent of their attempts or better, are shooting 41.4 percent during their skid.

Ending that slide - their longest since finishing 0-7 last season - could be tough against the defensive-minded Pacers, who lead the NBA in field goal defense (41.3 percent) and scoring defense with 89.1 points per game.

Indiana has been far less impressive on the offensive end, averaging 91.2 points. The Pacers, though, shot 49.3 percent Monday against a Grizzlies team that is ranked second to Indiana in scoring defense (89.4) and holding opponents to 43.5 percent shooting.

"Forty-nine percent against that team, one of the best defensive teams in the league, is pretty impressive," Vogel said. "Obviously, too many turnovers (20) but happy to get the 'W.'"

Indiana, which has lost seven straight when yielding 90 or more points on the road, has dropped three in a row at Portland.

The Pacers are going for their first two-game season sweep of the Blazers since 2007-08.
