KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
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.

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

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Los Angeles (20-39) at Portland (41-18), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Portland Trail Blazers have excelled as the NBA's highest-scoring team, though a strong defensive effort has spearheaded their latest winning streak.

With LaMarcus Aldridge back, the suddenly defensive-minded Blazers seek their sixth straight win Monday night against a Los Angeles Lakers team coming off its best offensive performance of the season.

Since losing a season-worst three in a row, Portland (41-18) has gotten back on track and stands on the verge of its longest win streak since an 11-game run from Nov. 8-25.

While they've continued scoring at a torrid pace, averaging an NBA-high 107.8 points on the season, the Blazers have clamped down during the win streak with 92.4 allowed - 10.5 below their average.

After limiting Denver to 39.8 percent shooting in Saturday's 102-96 home win, they've held opponents below 40.0 percent in four straight for the first time since February 2005.

"Just trying to make their looks tough, not giving them anything easy and trying to rebound down the stretch," Aldridge said after Portland improved to 20-2 when allowing fewer than 100 points.

Aldridge finished with 16 points and seven rebounds in his first game back after missing five because of a left groin injury. The three-time All-Star is averaging team highs of 23.8 points and 11.3 rebounds.

"It felt good," he said. "My timing was a little off but it felt good to be back out there playing with the guys."

Aldridge had 27 points and nine boards in a 114-108 road win over the Lakers on Dec. 1, while Damian Lillard scored 26 with nine assists. Lillard - who had 17 points Saturday - has totaled 64 points, 18 assists and nine 3-pointers in his last two meetings with Los Angeles (20-39).

The Blazers, a season-best 23 games above .500, will likely have to continue their surge without reserve forwards Thomas Robinson (left knee) and Joel Freeland (right knee).

They could have their hands full defensively with the Lakers, who snapped a three-game losing streak with a 126-122 home win over Sacramento on Friday.

Jordan Farmar had a career-high 30 points and hit 8 of 10 from 3-point range as Los Angeles set season highs in both points and shooting percentage (60.0) while also setting a franchise record with 19 3s in 27 attempts.

Newly acquired MarShon Brooks scored 23, and Pau Gasol and Jodie Meeks had 22 apiece.

"When we win it's fun," coach Mike D'Antoni said. "These guys need a little sugar once in a while, and this was sugar. We've been having problems, but they came through and I'm really happy for them."

Xavier Henry posted a career-high 27 points and Meeks had 20 in the December loss to the Blazers. After missing 28 games with a knee injury, Henry is expected to make his return in this matchup.

Although Gasol struggled with just six points on 3-of-15 shooting in the earlier meeting, he finished with 23 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in a 113-106 win in the most recent matchup at Portland on April 10.

Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 47 points in that contest but remains out with a knee injury. Nick Young, averaging 16.8 points, will sit for the 10th time in 11 games due to a sore left knee.

The Lakers had won five of six meetings before their Dec. 1 loss.
