TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY was banged up last season, but he enters this year healthy and has the potential to be one of the league's best two-way point guards . . . DEMAR DEROZAN does a nice job attacking, but he's a flawed player unless he develops a jump shot . . . The Raptors want TERRENCE ROSS to attack the basket more often. But whether he develops a three-point shot could determine where he fits into this rotation . . . After a disastrous season in Indiana, D.J. AUGUSTIN will have to earn his rotation spot. Toronto could use his shooting, though . . . DWIGHT BUYCKS comes back from Europe to back up Lowry . . . Versatile JULYAN STONE is an interesting bit piece, as he reunites with GM Masai Ujiri, who brought him to Denver. FORWARDS: Despite all that talent, RUDY GAY's poor shot selection and disinterested defense will have him on the trading block . . . AMIR JOHNSON will get another chance at full-time minutes. Despite some inconsistency, he still has the upside to be a good rebounder and shot-blocker . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH brings toughness and a decent mid-range jumper. He's a second-unit talent, but could challenge Johnson for minutes . . . LANDRY FIELDS is a well-compensated reserve . . . STEVE NOVAK gives them a legitimate shooter among the second unit . . . Toronto will try to shake some of that upside out of AUSTIN DAYE . . . QUINCY ACY will move to the three, likely making this a redshirt year. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS is set to become Toronto's new centerpiece. Talented enough for them to run the offense through him, he's rapidly improving on both ends of the court . . . AARON GRAY will stick around as a decent back-up, a 7-footer who can get in the way defensively.
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.

*Raptors-Trail Blazers Preview* ===============================


Toronto (25-21) at Portland (33-13), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Portland Trail Blazers have failed in their last two opportunities to surpass last season's win total, part of a slump they're simply taking in stride.

Portland looks to get back on track by beating the visiting Toronto Raptors for the 10th time in the last 11 meetings Saturday night.

The Blazers (33-13) are a vastly improved team from the one that finished 33-49 last season, but they've dropped four of six after falling 98-81 to Memphis on Tuesday.

Portland is averaging a league-best 108.4 points per game, but has scored fewer than 90 in its last two and set a season low in points while shooting 34.5 percent against the Grizzlies.

LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 27 points and 16 rebounds while fellow All-Star Damian Lillard added 16 points.

"We're in a rough patch right now," Lillard said. "We're not shooting the ball very well and we've got to defend better. We've played so well, we were due for a rough patch and a little bit of adversity."

Wesley Matthews had eight points on 2-of-9 shooting for Portland, which had a five-game home winning streak snapped.

"We're fine. We know we weren't going to go undefeated this season," Matthews said. "We knew we were going to lose games. It's just our job to minimize the losses, stop the bleeding and get back to our winning ways."

The Blazers enter this contest after three days off, while Toronto comes in playing the second of a back-to-back after Friday's 100-90 win over Denver. Portland has won five straight home meetings with the Raptors.

"We've played a lot of games lately. We've done a lot of traveling. No one likes to use fatigue or the schedule as an excuse, but it is a reality," coach Terry Stotts said. "We need to catch our breath, get our bodies right and be ready to play Saturday."

Toronto (25-21) is a season-best four games above .500, winning three straight and five of six. DeMar DeRozan scored 19 points and Terrence Ross added 18 against the Nuggets to begin a five-game West Coast road trip.

The Raptors' 25-point lead dwindled, but they held on for the win.

"We will take the `W,' but it was not a quality finish," coach Dwane Casey said. "I let the players know I was disappointed in the close. You can't come in and feel like you have the game won with a 20-point lead. You have to continue to execute, be strong with the ball and continue to execute defensively if you want to be serious about winning in this league."

Jonas Valanciunas and Kyle Lowry added 13 points apiece, but Lowry said Toronto can't continue to let big leads slip away. The Raptors visit Utah, Sacramento and the Los Angeles Clippers after this contest.

"We have to finish a lot better," Lowry said. "This is the NBA. Teams are going to make a run. We're not going to be negative. We won the game. But we have to finish better than that."

Toronto scored four points in the last 35 seconds of regulation to tie the last meeting with Portland, but Aldridge and Lillard had 25 points apiece to help the Blazers pull out a 118-110 overtime win Nov. 17.

The Raptors haven't won in Portland since Dec. 22, 2006.
