UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.
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.

*Jazz-Trail Blazers Preview* ============================


Utah (26-21) at Portland (23-23), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Utah Jazz are much better at home than on the road, but visiting the Portland Trail Blazers may help them pick up a victory away from Salt Lake City.

The Jazz make a brief stop as a visitor as they try to sweep this home-and-home set with the Trail Blazers and run their series winning streak to six games Saturday night.

Utah (26-21) averages 100.5 points while going 17-5 at home, but is not as effective on the road, compiling a 9-16 record with 95.8 points per game.

Thanks to a home-heavy, 12-game portion of their schedule, the Jazz have built some impressive momentum. They're 6-2 over the first stretch, dropping their lone road game.

After visiting the Trail Blazers, Utah opens a three-game homestand against Sacramento on Monday.

The Jazz's success at home continued Friday, when they beat the Blazers 86-77 while holding them to 36.7 percent from the field. However, the venue hasn't made much of a difference against Portland (23-23).

The Jazz have won 10 of the past 13 meetings with their Northwest Division rival, including a 5-1 record at the Rose Garden, while hitting 48.3 percent from the floor - 42.1 from beyond the arc - with an average of 100.8 points.

They took the most recent visit 112-91 on April 18, despite Al Jefferson making just 4 of 14 field goals to finish with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

The big man was much better Friday, scoring 21 with 10 boards while sinking 10 of 22 from the floor. He's topped 20 points in three of the past four games, averaging 19.5.

"You get him the ball in the post one-on-one against anybody in this league and we feel good about our chances," coach Tyrone Corbin said. "What's encouraging is now Al is making passes to his teammates, so it's making it more difficult for teams to lock in on him."

Gordon Hayward has totaled 43 points over the last two games at Portland, however, he's doubtful after missing a third game in a row with a sprained right shoulder.

The Blazers are trying to re-establish their momentum following Friday's defeat, which came after they won three of four to come out of a season-high six-game slide.

"We had trouble scoring. We missed easy baskets, but you have those nights," coach Terry Stotts said Friday. "They are a physical team in the paint and protect the paint very well so spacing becomes more important."

Each of their last three victories have come at home while averaging 102.3 points on 49.4 percent shooting.

"Portland is an explosive team," Corbin said. "They are capable of scoring a lot of points in a short period of time."

That's partly due to LaMarcus Aldridge, the Blazers' leader with 20.5 points per game. He struggled Friday, though, making 6 of 17 from the floor to finish with 16 points and 10 rebounds.

He's averaging 26.0 points over his last three home meetings with the Jazz, missing the latest one with a sore right hip.

Rookie Damian Lillard is looking to build on his 26 points in his first meeting with Utah. That matched his total from the previous two contests.

The Trail Blazers may be without Wes Matthews after he severely rolled his right ankle on a drive to the hoop and exited with nine points in the third quarter Friday. Locker room X-rays were negative, but his status is unclear.

Matthews is averaging 25.0 points in four home meetings with the Jazz.
