PORTLAND: GUARDS: DAMIAN LILLARD is for real, an elite shooter and a natural running the pick-and-roll. Though we're a little worried about what will happen if pick-and-pop partner LaMarcus Aldridge is dealt sometime this season . . . WESLEY MATTHEWS will be battling for playing time with Portland loading up on wings . . . C.J. MCCOLLUM can play either guard spot, but primarily he's a scorer and a potentially elite shooter. He is, however, out a few months with a foot fracture. . . MO WILLIAMS will provide the Blazers with a veteran guard presence who is more than capable of lighting it up on any given night. He is, however, a major defensive liability'If he straightens out his jumper, WILL BARTON could end up being a solid second-unit player . . . EARL WATSON gives them a much more reliable back-up point guard than Ronnie Price was . . . Sharpshooter ALLEN CRABBE will likely find himself in the D-League early on. FORWARDS: LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE's name will be in trade rumors all season, but it won't affect his role as this team's No. 1 option . . . NICOLAS BATUM will continue to do a little bit of everything, playing point forward to allow Lillard to play off the ball at times, and serving as a dangerous three-point shooter . . . DORELL WRIGHT can lock opponents down when he wants to. He'll push Wesley Matthews for minutes . . . Portland will be the next team to try to squeeze production out of 2012 No. 5 pick THOMAS ROBINSON. After Sacramento and Houston both gave up on him almost immediately, Robinson in danger of falling off the NBA map . . . VICTOR CLAVER provides some energy as a second-unit bit player . . . JOEL FREELAND has six fouls to give. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ will be a better fit alongside Aldridge than J.J. Hickson was. Lopez isn't skilled, but he can take some defensive responsibilities away from Aldridge . . . MEYERS LEONARD is, as expected, still a work in progress. He's enormous and there's some raw talent, but he too often looks lost.
LA LAKERS: GUARDS: KOBE BRYANT is 35 and coming off a ruptured Achilles. Even if he is ready for the season opener (as expected), Achilles injuries have drained the athleticism out of younger men . . . STEVE NASH enters the year healthy, but the training staff has discussed a minutes cap for the 39-year-old point guard . . . NICK YOUNG could grab that other starting wing spot, opposite his boyhood idol. How those two gunners could co-exist is something we'd love to see . . . STEVE BLAKE looked good in this offense last season, but is strictly a back-up . . . JODIE MEEKS might shoot his way into a much bigger role this season . . . XAVIER HENRY will need to prove a lot to earn himself minutes . . . What are you complaining about, Lakers fans? You got JORDAN FARMAR back! FORWARDS: PAU GASOL should benefit from the departure of Dwight Howard, who never bought into head coach Mike D'Antoni's offense or even tried to mesh with Gasol. D'Antoni's up-tempo, Euro-style system is perfectly suited to Gasol's strengths. And when Nash sits, they can run a lot of sets through their big man . . . WESLEY JOHNSON will have a chance to grab the vacant small forward spot. The former No. 4 overall pick has been a big disappointment through three seasons, but he looked decent as a spot-up shooter last seasons . . . JORDAN HILL will be the first big man off the bench in a thin frontcourt rotation. He can rebound and clean up around the basket a bit . . . ELIAS HARRIS keeps the Gonzaga connection going . . . SHAWNE WILLIAMS has had success for D'Antoni, but he is far removed from his days contributing for the Knicks. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN is the consolation prize after Dwight Howard's departure. Yes, it's a monstrous downgrade talent-wise, but as a skilled 7-footer, Kaman at least fits D'Antoni's system better . . . ROBERT SACRE has a chance to develop into a useful back-up center.

*Trail Blazers-Lakers Preview* ==============================


Portland (13-3) at Los Angeles (9-8), 9:30 p.m. EDT

The Portland Trail Blazers had their double-digit streak halted the last time they took the floor. Now they'd like to end one at Staples Center.

Portland looks to avoid an 11th consecutive loss there Sunday night against the Los Angeles Lakers in its return to the court after having an 11-game win streak snapped.

The Trail Blazers (13-3) fell to Phoenix 120-106 on Wednesday, their first loss in nearly three weeks. It was their longest winning streak since rolling off 13 straight in December 2007.

"That's something special in the NBA to win that many games in a row," said LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 24 points. "We're definitely proud of it but we have to bounce back and not lose two in a row. We've talked about that and it was fun and all but now it's time to go to L.A. and just bounce back."

That might be tough considering Portland has lost six straight road games against the Lakers, and 10 in a row at Los Angeles dating to a win over the Clippers on Oct. 27, 2010. Then again, Kobe Bryant has played in every game during Portland's road skid versus the Lakers, and he remains out while recovering from surgery for a torn Achilles tendon.

Los Angeles (9-8) has played well lately without him, winning five of six, and has won five of the past six meetings with the Blazers as well as 11 of 12 at Staples Center.

Damian Lillard had a career-high 38 points in the teams' last matchup, but Portland lost 113-106 at home April 10.

Lillard is a big reason the Blazers are off to a hot start overall and from 3-point range. Wesley Matthews and Lillard rank among the league's top five in 3s made with 47 and 44, respectively, and Portland is at 41.5 percent from beyond the arc to rank third in the NBA. Matthews is hitting 50.5 percent, Lillard is at 39.6 and Nicolas Batum 40.9, tying his career best.

Matthews, though, was held to eight points Wednesday - about half his season average - and Batum was 1 of 6 from 3-point range as the Blazers finished 7 for 19.

"It's not far-reaching to think that each one of those guys could shoot 40 percent or better on the season," coach Terry Stotts said of his 3-point shooters. "So is 42 percent sustainable? I think it is."

The Lakers also like to launch it from long range, making a league-high 181 3s.

The two teams are not so alike defensively, as the Trail Blazers have been tougher to both score and rebound against this season. Los Angeles allows 102.3 points and 47.0 rebounds per game, compared to 99.0 and 42.4 by Portland.

In their last game, the Lakers rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit and won 106-102 in Detroit on Friday night.

Wesley Johnson led six Lakers in double figures with a season-high 27 points. Shawne Williams added 20 while fellow reserves Jordan Farmar scored 13 and Nick Young had 12 for a Lakers bench which averages 47.0 points, most in the league.

"We got some defensive stops down the stretch and everybody played a key role in this win," said Farmar, averaging 16.7 points in the last three games. "That's what team basketball is all about."

The Lakers have won three straight at home.
