DALLAS: GUARDS: MONTA ELLIS slides into the 2-guard spot vacated by O.J. Mayo. He should benefit from the attention Dirk Nowitzki gets and from playing alongside a pure point guard . . . JOSE CALDERON is a defensive liability, but he should have the Mavs' offense running more smoothly . . . VINCE CARTER has become one of the league's better sixth men. He'll see plenty of minutes for a team that figures to frequently play small ball . . . When healthy, DEVIN HARRIS should be the defensive side of a platoon with Calderon . . . Israeli star GAL MEKEL should be able to help at both guard spots on a part-time basis . . . WAYNE ELLINGTON has yet to prove he can do anything with second-unit minutes . . . After breaking his foot, SHANE LARKIN is looking at a redshirt year. FORWARDS: Last season was a bit of a lost season for DIRK NOWITZKI, who missed the beginning of the year after knee surgery and didn't get going until late. Health, as well as the arrival of a true point guard in Jose Calderon, should allow him to bounce back nicely . . . SHAWN MARION had a nice resurgence last season, and he should have at least one good season left as he plays for another contract . . . JAE CROWDER has a chance to establish himself as the heir apparent to Marion. He's a hustle guy right now, and whether he can be more will depend on whether he develops his jump shot . . . RICKY LEDO was a favorite NBA draft sleeper for many experts. But while the skilled wing has NBA talent, he also has a reputation for being a bad seed. Ledo is almost certainly headed to the D-League for now. CENTERS: SAMUEL DALEMBERT is a sad consolation prize in the Dwight Howard derby. He'll likely step in as a starter . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT has never been able to overcome injuries. He could end up splitting time with Dalembert . . . DEJUAN BLAIR will provide energy and offense at the four and five . . . BERNARD JAMES should continue to develop as a rim protector.
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.

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


Dallas (12-8) at Portland (17-3), 10:00 p.m. EDT

After beating two of the best teams in the NBA, the red-hot Portland Trail Blazers easily got by the league's worst club their last time out.

Unfortunately for the Dallas Mavericks, they're up next.

Coming off its highest scoring display of the season, Portland goes for a ninth consecutive home win Saturday night against Dallas.

While some may have been skeptical of the Blazers' incredible start, beating Indiana and Oklahoma City early this week surely silenced any critics. Portland (17-3) kept things going Friday with a 130-98 rout of Utah, its 15th win in 16 games.

Wesley Matthews and Damian Lillard combined for 45 points on 15-of-20 shooting, including 9 of 12 from 3-point range. The Blazers went a franchise-best 17 of 23 from beyond the arc (73.9 percent), setting an NBA record for any team with at least 20 attempts.

"We were feeling it," Matthews said.

Lillard ranks second in the NBA with 57 made 3s, and Matthews is third with 56. Matthews also ranks third in 3-point percentage at 50.9.

Portland has made 78 of 171 (45.6 percent) from 3-point range during its eight-game home winning streak.

"Our three-point shooters are good," coach Terry Stotts told the league's official website. "You don't expect to shoot that well, but our threes are taken in rhythm. They're good shots for the guys taking them. When those guys are taking open threes, there's a good chance they're going in."

LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 points and 15 rebounds as the Blazers held a 50-39 edge on the glass. The Blazers are 17-0 when Aldridge, averaging a career-high 10.0 boards, pulls down at least six.

While the Mavericks appear to have a tough task ahead of them, they're seeking a third straight win after beating New Orleans 100-97 on Wednesday. Dallas was outrebounded 58-38 but found a way to close one out in the opener of a four-game road trip.

"It could have gone either way," said Dirk Nowitzki, who scored 11 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter. "Finally we were on the other end one time in execution and getting some stops. ... It's not very often you win on the road getting pounded on the glass by 20 boards. But we'll definitely take it."

Five other players scored in double figures for Dallas, including Vince Carter with 15 off the bench and Monta Ellis with 14.

"We have a lot of guys doing a lot of things to try to take the pressure off of him so he doesn't feel he has to put up big numbers every quarter," Carter said. "It can wear him down. Now fourth quarter he can do what he does best."

Ellis also matched a season high with 10 assists as the Mavericks improved to 11-1 when he dishes out at least five. He is averaging 4.4 on the road compared to 6.8 at home.

Nowitzki's career average of 20.5 points versus Portland is his second-lowest against any opponent. He was limited to 11.0 on 34.6 percent shooting in the last two meetings, both Dallas wins.

The Mavericks have taken four of five from the Blazers, including two of three in Portland.

Aldridge has averaged 24.9 points in his last 15 against Dallas. Lillard, though, was held to 14.3 per game and 28.3 percent shooting in the four matchups last season.
