DALLAS: GUARDS: DARREN COLLISON's jump shot might be shaky, but he can get into the lane at will. He'll be a much different look than Jason Kidd had been in Big D . . . O.J. MAYO becomes the second option in this offense. He'll have the ball in his hands a lot . . . VINCE CARTER will come off the bench. At this point, he's a three-point specialist, and not a very good one . . . DELONTE WEST will back up both guard spots. Don't be surprised if he overtakes Collison at some point . . . RODDY BEAUBOIS can heat up in an instant, but he has work to do to make this rotation . . . DAHNTAY JONES is roster filler . . . DOMINIQUE JONES enters the year on the roster bubble . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM will learn the point guard position watching from the bench as a rookie. FORWARDS: After a slow start last season, DIRK NOWITZKI looked like the Dirk of old in the second half of the year. He's still got something left in the tank, but it's still unclear if the swelling in his knee will require surgery, something that would shelve him for more than a month . . . SHAWN MARION is still an important cog in Carlisle's creative defensive gameplans, so he'll keep playing big minutes despite his dwindling offensive skills . . . ELTON BRAND is still relevant, even behind Nowitzki, because of his ability to play some center . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT will be in and out of the rotation again, but he's now relatively healthy and showed signs of being a serviceable rotation player a year ago . . . Rookie Jae CROWDER profiles as a potentially solid second-unit player, but he'll be buried on this depth chart. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN gives Dallas some offensive skill at center, but he's not exactly the defensive presence they've needed. He'll log the bulk of the minutes here, but there are going to be a handful of games where the Mavs have to sit him and go small for defensive purposes . . . 27-year-old rookie BERNARD JAMES could fill Ian Mahinmi's old role of a shot-blocker/fouler off the bench.
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.

*Mavericks-Trail Blazers Preview* =================================


Dallas (37-39) at Portland (33-43), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The Dallas Mavericks are well aware time is running out if they want to avoid missing the playoffs for the first time since 2000, but they seemingly have a favorable schedule down the stretch.

They conclude a four-game road trip Sunday night versus the Portland Trail Blazers, who have lost seven straight and are guaranteed to miss the postseason for a second consecutive year.

The Mavericks (37-39) are three games behind the Los Angeles Lakers for the Western Conference's final playoff spot and 2 1/2 back of ninth-place Utah. They dropped the first two games of the trip - a 20-point loss to the Lakers on Tuesday and Thursday's last-second defeat at Denver - before winning 117-108 in Sacramento on Friday.

"We're playing game to game and trying to win every one and give ourselves a chance," coach Rick Carlisle said. "This is a prideful group of guys. We want to finish this season on an uptick."

Shawn Marion came up with 25 points and 12 rebounds Friday after averaging 8.2 and 5.8, respectively, over the previous five games.

While Los Angeles faces four teams currently in playoff position over its final six games and the Jazz play three over their final five, the Mavericks seemingly have an easier road. Following Sunday's contest, they have home games against West-worst Phoenix and a Denver team that just lost Danilo Gallinari for the season to an ACL tear.

Dallas then plays two of its final three versus 50-loss New Orleans, with a matchup against Memphis in between.

Dirk Nowitzki said the team has been through a lot of difficult times this season in its quest for a 13th consecutive postseason berth.

"We've had numerous and numerous and numerous tough losses this year - one-point possessions down the stretch where the game could have gone either way - and we lost our fair share of them," Nowitzki said. "But somehow we always get back up. ... We always come back the next day and compete. That's really all you can ask for."

O.J. Mayo is averaging only 8.0 points and shooting 33.3 percent over his last five games, but he's averaged 25.0 points while shooting 68.3 percent as Dallas has won two of three versus Portland this season.

The Blazers (33-43) have lost by an average of 17.3 points during their seven-game skid and are on the verge of their longest losing streak since dropping the final eight games of the 2005-06 season.

They fell 116-98 to Houston on Friday in the second game of a five-game homestand, officially eliminating them from playoff contention.

"It's definitely a downer. To have a losing streak at this time of the year and playing against playoff teams, it's a difficult task," coach Terry Stotts said. "In general, I've found that most players bounce back pretty well and we'll bounce back Sunday."

Wesley Matthews scored 18 points and said he intended to talk to the team regarding the recent efforts.

"It's not even about (the playoffs)," Matthews said. "We've got to play like this is the blessing it is."

LaMarcus Aldridge was the major bright spot, scoring 32 points and grabbing 13 rebounds after missing the previous four games with a right ankle sprain. He doesn't believe the recent swoon is due to a lack of effort.

"I don't think I question anyone playing hard," said Aldridge, averaging 26.8 points and 10.8 boards in his last five versus Dallas. "I definitely want guys to play a lot smarter out there."
