LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL was every bit an MVP-caliber player in his first year in L.A. They should monitor his minutes late in the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. . . His Achilles is on schedule to be healed by December, and CHAUNCEY BILLUPS will start once he's healthy. He's likely to lose athleticism, and his leash could be short if he shoots as poorly as he did last year . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD steps in to lead the second unit. We'll see how quickly his inefficient, shoot-first ways grow stale . . . ERIC BLEDSOE was a stud in the playoffs. He can't play extended minutes alongside Paul, but coach Vinny Del Negro knows he has to get Bledsoe on the floor . . . WILLIE GREEN provides capable depth, but he's on the outside looking in at the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN's knee injury likely isn't serious enough to linger into the season. He's starting to develop some post moves to go along with his dunks . . . CARON BUTLER played hurt for most of last year, but still did enough to nail down a starting job for this season . . . LAMAR ODOM moped his way back to L.A. Don't be surprised if he has a strong bounce-back year, especially considering he'll be the Clippers' best defensive big . . . GRANT HILL could see some starts, but more likely the 40-year-old is pegged for limited minutes . . . MATT BARNES will replace Hill once he injures himself again . . . RONNY TURIAF will provide some of the toughness they lost when Reggie Evans left . . . TREY THOMPKINS will continue to languish on the bench, especially after sitting out the preseason with a knee injury. CENTERS: He can block shots and rebound, but at this point DeANDRE JORDAN is just too much of a defensive liability in space to play 30-plus minutes. That's why the Clippers will often pair Lamar Odom with Blake Griffin in the frontcourt . . . RYAN HOLLINS can also defend the basket and has six fouls to give.
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.

*Clippers-Trail Blazers Preview* ================================


Los Angeles (32-12) at Portland (21-21), 10:00 p.m. EDT

It's uncertain when Chris Paul will return.

That leaves plenty of questions about how the Los Angeles Clippers are going to improve their offense.

Paul is likely to miss a third consecutive game Saturday night when the Pacific Division leaders begin a home-and-home set with the Portland Trail Blazers at the Rose Garden.

Paul played last Saturday and Monday after missing Los Angeles' sweep of a three-game trip because of a bruised right kneecap, but the All-Star point guard has not been able to go the last two games. He could also miss Portland's visit to Los Angeles on Sunday.

The Clippers (32-12) are scoring 101.2 points per game, but they've been held to fewer than 100 in a season-high five straight following Thursday's 93-88 loss at lowly Phoenix. Los Angeles shot 39.8 percent as it opened a stretch of 10 of 11 on the road with its third loss in a row.

"Our offense was stagnant," said All-Star forward Blake Griffin, whose 12 points were about six below his season average. "Our defense wasn't great. We did a poor job and it starts with me. I have to do a better job of setting the tone early and being a leader out there, especially with Chris not out there."

Griffin is expected to be there Saturday despite re-injuring his ankle early in the Phoenix loss but playing 36 minutes. He had fewer than 10 field-goal attempts for just the fifth time all season and went 2 for 8 at the free-throw line.

The Clippers dropped a season-high four in a row Nov. 21-26 but followed with a franchise-record 17-game win streak. They had won 24 of 27 before this three-game skid.

Eric Bledsoe has started the past two games at point guard but has totaled seven assists, well below Paul's 9.7 season average which ranks second in the NBA.

Los Angeles will try to get back on track in its second trip to Portland this season. Led by former Blazer Jamal Crawford's 25 points along with 21 apiece from Paul and DeAndre Jordan, the Clippers won 103-90 on Nov. 8 to improve to 7-26 at the Rose Garden.

Los Angeles can win three straight there for the first time.

Portland (21-21) is closing a five-game homestand after ending a season-high six-game slide with Wednesday's 100-80 victory over Indiana. It was a much-needed blowout win for the Blazers, who had played in a franchise-record 10 consecutive games decided by six points or fewer.

"It was refreshing, especially since we were on the good side of it," coach Terry Stotts said.

Forward LaMarcus Aldridge scored 27 points and received more good news Thursday, getting named an All-Star reserve for the second straight season. He's averaging 20.7 points and 8.8 boards.

"I was just trying to win," Aldridge said Wednesday when asked if he was distracted by the All-Star announcement.

Crawford won't be joining Aldridge on the West squad next month in Houston - much to his and his teammates' disappointment - but his 16.7 points per game rank first among NBA reserves.

The Clippers' bench leads the league with 41.5 points per game. Portland's backups are averaging an NBA-worst 16.5.
