KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
INDIANA: Paul George's departure completely changed Indiana's game plan. Rather than making moves like a potential championship contender, new president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard decided to rebuild on the fly. Conventional wisdom suggests this team will struggle, and it could. But the Pacers seem to be playing like a better unit and may have just enough to sneak into the Eastern Conference playoffs. Although it's expected to be Myles Turner who replaces George as the face of the franchise, the key to Indiana's success this season will be Victor Oladipo, a defensive stopper who can provide the consistent energy the Pacers were lacking last season. Oladipo's ability to play fast and to share the leadership duties with Turner could finally push the 6-foot-4 guard to have that breakthrough season expected from the No. 2 draft pick four years ago.
PREVIEW
Two Blazers feel right at home in Indiana
 

INDIANAPOLIS -- For the Portland Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton and rookie Caleb Swanigan, the Friday night game against the Indians Pacers in Bankers Life Fieldhouse represents a Hoosier State homecoming.

Connaughton, who scored 24 points Wednesday night in Portland's near record-setting 124-76 regular-season-opening victory at Phoenix, played college basketball at Notre Dame.

Swanigan, the 26th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, had eight points, four rebounds and three assists in his NBA debut. He played at Purdue and was the 2017 Big Ten Player of the Year.

An Indiana University product led the Pacers to a season-opening win Wednesday. Victor Oladipo had a team-best 22 points in Indiana's 140-131 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

Led by guard Damian Lillard's 27 points, Portland's 48-point victory fell two points short of the franchise's all-time-record margin of victory. The game did set an opening-night record for NBA margin of victory, topping the Denver Nuggets' 46-point victory against the Los Angeles Clippers in 1987.

And the Trail Blazers did it without All-Star guard CJ McCollum, who was suspended for one game for leaving the bench during a brief fight involving Swanigan in the final preseason game.

"That was a great way to start the season," Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "Obvious statement is that we played very well. Pat played with a lot of poise and a lot of confidence at Phoenix. Everybody was wondering where the 3-pointers are going to come from. Pat is one of them."

Connaughton is playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder as he returns to the state where he played college ball.

"For me, I do it because people aren't sure I'm supposed to be here," said Connaughton, who made 9 of 14 field goal attempts, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range. "They think I'm supposed to be on a mound, pitching for the Yankees in the ALCS. For me, it's about showing that I belong and making sure I help this team win."

Swanigan is thrilled to be returning to the venue where he led his Homestead High School team -- from a Fort Wayne, Ind., suburb -- to the 2015 Class 4A (big school) state championship.

"It's going to be exciting," Swanigan said of facing the Pacers in only his second regular-season game as a professional.

Oladipo is excited about the revamped Pacers team. He came to Indiana as part of the Paul George trade.

"I am going to try my hardest to play like I did Wednesday night," Oladipo said. "I just want to go out and play the game and do a little bit of everything. Against Brooklyn, I was just trying to set the tone on both ends. I have to do that night in and night out."

Pacers coach Nate McMillan is pleased to have the former Hoosiers star.

"We have speed that can get the ball down the floor and create open opportunities by Victor pushing," McMillan said. "Last year, the top five teams in the league averaged 110 points or more. My goal is for this team to average at least 110."
