PORTLAND: The Blazers made few changes in the offseason, sticking with a nucleus of backcourt duo Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, along with Jusuf Nurkic, who joined the team via trade last season and helped fuel a push to the playoffs. The 7-footer known as the Bosnian Beast dropped lost about 35 pounds over the offseason in an effort to become quicker and more agile. A fan favorite, Nurkic suggested going into this season that the Blazers should become the NBA's Bad Boys, drawing inspiration from the Detroit Pistons of the 1980's and early '90s. A key for Nurkic'and the Blazers'is whether he can stay healthy. Another key will be who steps up to provide support for that trio. One candidate is rookie Caleb Swanigan, who was impressive in the preseason with Noah Vonleh recovering from a shoulder injury.
CHARLOTTE: The loss of Nic Batum to start the season'the expectation is that he'll be sidelined until at least mid-November with a torn ligament in his left elbow'is a big one for the Hornets, as he was expected to trigger the pick and roll game with Dwight Howard. Filling the void at shooting guard is expected to be Jeremy Lamb, whose off-season improvement and rededication to basketball has drawn raves from head coach Steve Clifford. The feeling is the Hornets can return to being a playoff contender for the third time in five years if Howard returns to an All-Star level after two disappointing season in Houston and Atlanta. Howard has played under Clifford in the past, and his addition allows two-year starter Cody Zeller to play with the second team where he is much better suited.
Hornets, Blazers look for points from point guards

Two of the premier point guards in the NBA go head-to-head Saturday night when the Portland Trail Blazers visit the Charlotte Hornets.

Both teams will be playing the second half of a back-to-back, with the Trail Blazers having won 95-88 at Orlando on Friday night and the Hornets falling 104-98 at home to Miami.

Damian Lillard's 21 points led the way at Orlando for the Trail Blazers, who have opened a five-game trip with two straight wins after a loss at Golden State.

Portland began the Eastern portion of its trip with a win at Miami on Wednesday that snapped a five-game losing streak.

CJ McCollum, Lillard's backcourt sidekick, led the way against the Heat with 28 points, then complemented his teammate's 21 points with 20 of his own.

Lillard was happy to note afterward that the Portland defense, which was scorched for 103 or more points in all five games of the losing streak, had limited its second straight opponent to 98 or fewer.

"Every year, for every team, adversity hits at some point and I feel like it was just hitting for us," he said. "We hadn't been defending well; we hadn't been playing good offensively."

Kemba Walker, meanwhile, had 25 points, but they weren't enough in Friday's loss to Miami.

The Hornets were opening a four-game homestand that continues Monday against New York and Wednesday against Toronto.

The problem against the Heat was that none of Walker's teammates scored more than 15 points, and the Charlotte bench got blitzed 51-35 by the Miami backups.

"They showed their depth tonight," Hornets interim coach Stephen Silas said of the Heat. "They had seven guys in double figures and no one over 16 points. When you play like that, it's a winning combination."

Lillard has gotten the better of Walker in their head-to-heads in careers that have mirrored each other in many ways.

Both have played only for one team, with Lillard joining the league in 2012-13 and Walker a year earlier.

The Trail Blazers have gone 7-3 against the Hornets since Lillard was drafted, although the clubs dueled on even terms last season, when both won at home.

Lillard had a game-high 27 points when the Trail Blazers beat the Hornets 115-98 in January in Portland. Walker countered with a team-high 22 points in the loss.

The Portland bench, paced by Meyers Leonard (12 points) and Moe Harkless (10), outscored their Charlotte counterparts 55-41.

Thirteen days earlier, it was Walker with game-high point total (23) in leading the Hornets to a 107-85 home win over the Trail Blazers. Lillard had a team-high 21 points for Portland.

Again, the benches played a key role. This time, the Hornets' backups got the better of it, 44-22, behind Frank Kaminsky's 11 points.

The 27- and 21-point outings against the Hornets were the ninth and 10th of Lillard's career in his 10 games against the Hornets.

Walker, who has gone 3-8 in his career against Portland, has one career double-double (15 points, 11 assists) and four 20-point games in his meetings with the Trail Blazers.
