PORTLAND: LAST SEASON: 53-29, lost 4-0 to Golden State in the Western Conference finals.
COACH: Terry Stotts (eighth season with Trail Blazers, 325-249; 12th season overall, 440-417).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Damian Lillard (25.8 ppg), G CJ McCollum (21.0), F Rodney Hood (11.2), F Zach Collins (8.6), C Hassan Whiteside (12.3 with Miami).
KEY LOSSES: F Al-Farouq Aminu, F Evan Turner, F Maurice Harkless, C Meyers Leonard.
KEY ADDITIONS: Whiteside, C Pau Gasol, F Anthony Tolliver, G Kent Bazemore.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Blazers will count on Whiteside at center while Jusuf Nurkic recovers from a broken leg he suffered during a game in March. Nurkic probably won't return until January, at the earliest. The Blazers added some insurance at the position by signing Pau Gasol, who is also making his way back from surgery. Portland will look to Zach Collins to take the next step in his third season in the league. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum form one of the best backcourt duos in the league.
OUTLOOK: In the loaded Western Conference, the revamped Trail Blazers, with a total of seven new players, will have to come together sooner rather than later. A key will be how Whiteside gels with the rest of the team. The 7-footer was acquired in a trade with the Miami, where his production fell off last season after three strong seasons. The Blazers will again emphasize defensive improvement going into the season, something Stotts has routinely preached each fall camp. Lillard signed a supermax extension in the offseason, and appears to be a Blazer for the long haul. Expectations are high for Portland after making the Western Conference finals last season, and players say they're not going to be satisfied with simply making the playoffs, the goal now is to go deep into the postseason.
DALLAS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Rick Carlisle (12th season with Mavericks, 470-416; 18th season overall, 751-627).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Luka Doncic (21.2 ppg), G Delon Wright (12.2 with Memphis), G-F Justin Jackson (8.2), F Kristaps Porzingis (sidelined by knee injury), C Dwight Powell (10.6).
KEY LOSSES: F Dirk Nowitzki, G Devin Harris, C Salah Mejri.
KEY ADDITIONS: Wright, G Seth Curry, F Isaiah Roby.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The world will be watching the Euro pair of Doncic and Porzingis, literally. The Mavericks are headliners internationally now that the 20-year-old rookie of the year from Slovenia and the 7-foot-3 Latvian are finally getting to play together. Dallas held Porzingis out for the last two months last season after the blockbuster trade that brought him from New York, even though he could have played. Their debut together is even more intriguing since it's Dallas' first season without Nowitzki, the German superstar who retired after setting an NBA record by playing all 21 seasons with the same franchise. The biggest question is who among the role players will emerge. Keep an eye on Wright. The Mavericks liked him in the 2015 draft. AD
OUTLOOK: The Mavericks wanted to sign a significant piece in free agency after the trading-deadline addition of Porzingis, who had just been named a 2018 All-Star before the knee injury that sidelined him for 20 months. They had to settle on Wright as a restricted free agent in a sign-and-trade with Memphis, so Dallas will lean heavily on Doncic and Porzingis while trying to get back to the playoffs after missing three straight seasons. It's the longest stretch without the postseason for the franchise since it was among the worst in sports coming out of the 1990s. It won't be easy in the West. The Mavericks will exceed expectations if they contend for a playoff spot.
Blazers still battling for postseason as they face Mavs

The stretch run of the seeding round in the NBA's Orlando-area bubble comes with significant playoff implications for the Portland Trail Blazers and Dallas Mavericks, who meet on Tuesday.

Dallas (43-30) pulled within a game of the Utah Jazz for the Western Conference's No. 6 seed on Monday, beating Utah head-to-head, 122-114. The Mavericks were without Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, two of the team's top performers in the bubble thus far.

Doncic sat due to an ankle injury, while Porzingis was scratched with a left knee injury. Their statuses for Tuesday are not yet known.

In the meantime, the trio of Tim Hardaway Jr., Seth Curry and Boban Marjanovic picked up the slack -- particularly in the second half when the Mavericks outscored the Jazz, 68-44.

"Second half, we moved it better, we defended better, our energy was up," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said in his postgame teleconference. "They pulled their starters, and I'm not going to overlook that as a factor in the game. But our brand of basketball in the second half was more like playoff basketball, and that's where it needs to be."

Hardaway scored 27 points and Curry added 22, with the two shooting a combined 7-of-12 from 3-point range. Marjanovic chipped in 20 points.

The win pulled Dallas to .500 since the NBA returned to competition from the COVID-19 hiatus. With two games remaining in the seeding round, the Mavericks can play their way into a playoff spot as high as No. 5. They trail Oklahoma City by 1.5 games after the Thunder's loss Monday to Phoenix.

Portland (33-39) heads into its last stretch of the seeding round in its own playoff chase. The Trail Blazers enter play Tuesday just a half-game behind Memphis for the Western Conference's No. 8 seed, well-positioned to force a play-in for the final postseason berth.

The Trail Blazers must hold off their own chasers, though, with the Spurs and red-hot Suns both a half-game behind.

Portland bolstered its prospects on Sunday with a 124-121 defeat of Philadelphia. Sunday's decision marked a needed rebound for the Trail Blazers after losing a testy 122-117 game Saturday to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Damian Lillard missed two free throws late against the Clippers, prompting a mocking goodbye wave from Paul George. Lillard retorted it was a show of "respect" after Lillard's long 3-pointer to close out a first-round playoff series last year ended the postseason for George and his then-Oklahoma City teammates.

If Lillard was at all fazed, it didn't show Sunday. He scored 51 points to tie his second-highest output of the 2019-20 season, and shot 15-of-16 from the foul line.

"He asks a lot of himself, and his teammates expect a lot of him, as well," Portland coach Terry Stotts said in his postgame press conference on Sunday. "When he says something, they listen. They try and do what he says.

"As a coach, when your best player's your best leader," Stotts added. "It makes everybody's job a lot easier."

Lillard scored 47 points in his last meeting with Dallas on Jan. 23, but a 27-point, nine-assist and six-rebound effort from Doncic scored the Mavericks a 133-125 win.
