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.
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.

(ADDS Aldridge being named player of the week for third time)

*Trail Blazers-Cavaliers Preview* =================================


Portland (21-4) at Cleveland (9-14), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Portland Trail Blazers' talented young point guard is playing really well.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' talented young point guard may be playing even better.

Damian Lillard leads the Trail Blazers into Cleveland against Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Irving was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday after averaging 29.0 points and 6.3 assists while shooting 50.8 percent in three games last week. Irving also averaged 2.3 steals, shot 9 for 22 (40.9 percent) from 3-point range and made 14 of 15 free throws.

"He deserves it. He's put up some big numbers for us, and he was aggressive especially at the right times for us," coach Mike Brown said. "He can get a lot of accolades because he has the chance to be that good. He has special talents."

Squaring off with Irving will be Lillard, who is coming off a special performance of his own. Lillard sank a fadeaway jumper as time expired to give Portland (21-4) a 111-109 overtime victory at Detroit on Sunday.

"It felt good," said Lillard, who scored 23 points and handed out seven assists as Portland won its fourth straight. "I had a lot of shots that I let go that felt good that didn't fall. When that one went in, I was like 'thank you.' I'm happy the shot went in."

The point guards have faced off only once before. Irving had 31 points while Lillard was held to 13 on 3-of-9 shooting in Cleveland's 93-88 win at Portland on Jan. 16 that ended a four-game skid in the series.

However, this season's Portland team is much deeper and talented than last year's version. The Trail Blazers have the best record in the West thanks to an efficient, high-scoring offense. Portland averages 107.9 points and shoots 45.9 percent, both of which rank near the top of the NBA.

Power forward LaMarcus Aldridge was just named the West's player of the week for the third time this season after averaging 25.5 points in the Blazers' four wins last week.

He also tied a season high with three blocks as Portland held Detroit to 15 in the fourth quarter after allowing 33 in the third to fall behind by 11.

"I'm really impressed with what we can do defensively when we pick it up," center Robin Lopez said. "We haven't peaked, because we still wait until the motivation is there, but when we needed it, we stepped up."

The Cavaliers (9-14), who had a three-game win streak snapped with a 114-107 loss at Miami on Saturday, know they will have their hands full.

Outside of Irving, nobody on the roster scores more than 14.5 points per game, and the Cavaliers average 94.4 points. With so many young players, they see the Trail Blazers as a team they would like to one day become.

"If you look at their roster, they have veteran guys or guys in their prime. They have very few young guys they are looking to run or lead the ship," Brown said. "So they have a lot of veteran players who know how to play the game the right way on both ends of the floor."

Portland has won its first 10 games of a season against the Eastern Conference for the second time in franchise history, matching the mark from 1990-91.
