KEY GAME INFORMATION
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON has emerged as the closest thing to a No. 1 option on this team, and despite his size, he's proven capable of playing full-time minutes. He'll continue to post big numbers in an up-tempo system that suits him perfectly . . . ANDRE MILLER will both back up Lawson and share the court with him at times (though Andre Iguodala figures to play a lot of two this season). The steady veteran is one of the league's most underrated sixth men . . . It's a bit surprising that EVAN FOURNIER is making the jump to the NBA this year. His size and skill combo will be nice on the wing one day, but he's unlikely to contribute this year . . . JULYAN STONE will be out until January after offseason hip surgery, but he should be Lawson's main backup upon his return. FORWARDS: DANILO GALLINARI is their most complete offensive player. If healthy, he's capable of being a 20-PPG scorer . . . ANDRE IGUODALA should enjoy the much faster pace Denver plays at. He'll see full-time minutes between both wing spots . . . KENNETH FARIED isn't a skilled big, but he's a high-energy guy who can get his own points off offensive rebounds . . . WILSON CHANDLER could end up leading their second unit in minutes and points . . . COREY BREWER is a front office favorite. He'll stay in the rotation as a defensive presence/glue guy . . . JORDAN HAMILTON could break into the rotation. He's one-dimensional, but has the offensive skills . . . Denver will try to solve the ANTHONY RANDOLPH riddle. Don't expect it to happen this year. CENTERS: Denver is all-in on internet punchline JaVALE McGEE. They'll give the athletic 7-footer every chance to become the star they think he can be. Whether the flaky McGee can capitalize is questionable . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is one of the NBA's best screeners, but his touches will be limited . . . KOSTA KOUFOS has quietly developed into a usable rotation player, but he might be squeezed out of minutes.
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.

*Nuggets-Trail Blazers Preview* ===============================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Denver (36-22) at Portland (26-30), 10:30 p.m. EDT

The Denver Nuggets have shown that even without their leading scorer they can still run opposing teams off the floor with the league's best transition offense.

The Portland Trail Blazers are just hoping they can keep their banged-up shooting guard on the floor to make a run at the playoffs.

The high-powered Nuggets try to build on an impressive victory and earn a rare win in Portland on Wednesday night.

Denver (36-22) leads the league in fast-break points at 19.4 per game, and it's been even better in transition since Jan. 18, averaging 22.7 while going 12-5.

Monday provided another showcase for the team's ability to score on the run as Denver matched a season high with 33 fast-break points in a 119-108 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, its ninth straight at home.

"We were having fun out there," Kenneth Faried told the team's official site. "When we're having fun and clicking like that as a team, it's pretty hard to stop us."

Faried had 12 points and 10 rebounds for his 24th double-double and the Nuggets improved to 14-5 when scoring at least 22 fast-break points.

One of the more impressive aspects about Monday's performance was that it came without the services of Danilo Gallinari, the team's leading scorer at 16.9 ppg. Gallinari was a late scratch with a bruised left thigh, but Wilson Chandler replaced him and put together another good showing with 23 points.

Chandler is averaging 18.7 points on 22-of-42 (52.4 percent) shooting over his last three games. He also hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 14.9 seconds remaining in overtime in a 115-111 win over the Trail Blazers on Jan. 15.

"Will's been playing great, knocking down big shots," teammate Corey Brewer said. "He's spreading the floor for us and driving. It's hard for bigs to guard him, so he's getting a lot of things done."

Although Chandler is playing well, Denver would probably like to have Gallinari back against Portland. He scored 25 in last month's meeting and is averaging 19.4 points over his last five games versus the Blazers.

Andre Iguodala has also experienced success in 16 contests against them, averaging 19.4 points - 4.3 higher than his career average, and his best against any opponent.

The Nuggets, however, haven't enjoyed much success lately in Portland, losing their last six there.

Portland (26-30) will need to tighten up its transition defense after allowing an average of 16.0 fast-break points over its last three games. The Blazers sit four games out of the Western Conference's eighth spot, and will likely need Wesley Matthews to continue to gut it out if they hope to make the playoffs.

Matthews, who said he's "not even close to 80 percent," continues to play through injuries to his left leg, ankle and elbow suffered just prior to the All-Star break. He's already proven to be one of the NBA's most durable players, appearing in 250 straight games to start his career before a hip injury kept him out earlier this season.

Matthews played through the pain again to score 24 points - including five 3-pointers - in a 92-86 win over Boston on Sunday, putting the brakes on a seven-game skid.

"We haven't lost hope. We haven't lost belief," said Matthews, averaging 15.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists. "We still feel we can make these playoffs. We know what we've got to do."

Nicolas Batum has averaged 22.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists as Portland has split the season's first two meetings with Denver.
