KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."

*Trail Blazers-Hawks Preview* =============================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Portland (32-36) at Atlanta (38-30), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Atlanta Hawks are intently focused on securing a top-four spot in the Eastern Conference, and they've helped themselves by winning four of their last five games.

The Hawks will try to add another victory by extending their recent success against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night.

Atlanta (38-30) stayed within two games of fourth-place Brooklyn with Wednesday's 98-90 victory over Milwaukee. The Hawks outscored the eighth-place Bucks 29-16 in the third quarter while bouncing back from a 127-113 loss to Dallas on Monday.

"This is definitely big," said guard Jeff Teague, who had a game-high 27 points and 11 assists. "We came out ready to play from the start. Guys made a consistent effort. We made plays at the end to finish off the victory.

"We're trying hard every day to get these wins. We know it's a rough hill to climb. Hopefully, we can continue to play well, get wins and get that fourth spot."

Al Horford provided his ninth double-double in 10 games with 26 points and 15 rebounds. He has helped Atlanta average 103.8 points on 50.4 percent shooting over its last five games.

The Hawks, scoring 97.6 per game and shooting 46.5 percent this season, are also making 41.9 percent of their 3-pointers during the recent surge.

"When we play with energy, we're a pretty fun basketball team to watch," coach Larry Drew said. "As I told the guys, it's not going to be easy from here on out. We have to understand that (our opponents) are going to play with more of a sense of urgency."

Atlanta will try to keep rolling by earning its eighth win in nine matchups against Portland, which has good reason to be an urgent team.

The Blazers (32-36) are tied for 10th in the West, 3 1/2 games behind the eighth-place Los Angeles Lakers.

Portland has put itself in a tough spot by dropping 14 of its last 17 on the road, but it earned a rare victory away from home 99-89 in Chicago on Thursday. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 28 points and Damian Lillard had 24.

"The energy was there. Everyone was focused on the game plan," forward Nicolas Batum said.

That didn't seem to be the case when the Blazers lost 95-87 at home to Atlanta on Nov. 12, getting outscored 10-0 over the final 2:49.

Teague and Horford had four points apiece during that stretch and were among five Atlanta players to finish in double figures. Portland's J.J. Hickson had 19 points and 18 rebounds in the loss.

The Blazers have dropped four straight visits to Atlanta, averaging 86.5 points in that stretch, and the Hawks have won five of their last seven home games overall.

Josh Smith, who had 12 points and 16 rebounds Wednesday against the Bucks, will be looking to record his seventh consecutive double-double versus Portland. He's averaged 16.3 points and 11.8 boards during that streak.
