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.
MILWAUKEE: LAST SEASON: 60-22, best record in the NBA during the regular season, lost to Toronto in six games in the Eastern Conference finals.
COACH: Mike Budenholzer (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Eric Bledsoe (15.9 ppg), G Wesley Matthews (12.2 ppg), F Khris Middleton (18.3 ppg), F Giannis Antetokounmpo (27.7 ppg), C Brook Lopez (12.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Malcolm Brogdon, F Nikola Mirotic, G Tony Snell.
KEY ADDITIONS: Matthews, C Robin Lopez, G Kyle Korver, F Dragan Bender, F Thanasis Antetokounmpo. PLAYER TO WATCH: Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo had the best season of his career a season ago en route to earning NBA MVP. He was outplayed by Kawhi Leonard in the Eastern Conference finals. Now, in his seventh season, how will Antetokounmpo improve his game offensively as he looks to take the Bucks to the finals and capture the first NBA title for the franchise since 1971?
OUTLOOK: Expectations have never been higher for the Bucks. A season after winning MVP, Coach of the Year (Budenholzer) and Executive of the Year (GM Jon Horst), Milwaukee enters this season without former Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, one of only eight players in NBA history in the 50-40-90 club. The Bucks lost Brogdon to free agency, but managed to keep their core of Bledsoe, Lopez, Middleton and Antetokounmpo together. With both Leonard and LeBron James now out west, anything less than a conference finals appearance will be deemed a failure in Milwaukee.
Bucks happy to be home against Blazers

The Milwaukee Bucks have made themselves at home during their early road-heavy schedule, so much so that one has to wonder if the team is anxious to return to Fiserv Forum.

Guess again.

The Bucks look to continue their run of dominance on Thursday when they open a four-game homestand against the Portland Trail Blazers, who are headed in the other direction with losses in eight of their last 10 contests.

Milwaukee, which has won a season-high five in a row overall and eight of 10 on the road, has played a league-low four home games in 2019-20.

"We feel like we've been out for a long time, so it's going to be great to be home," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Our fans and the arena is so great in Milwaukee and the energy we get from them. We'll need it (Thursday night)."

Giannis Antetokounmpo has made himself at home regardless of venue.

The reigning NBA Most Valuable Player collected 33 points and 11 rebounds to pace Milwaukee to a 135-127 victory at Atlanta on Wednesday. Antetokounmpo has recorded 30-plus points and 10-plus rebounds in eight of his past nine contests, and he has 14 consecutive double-doubles to start the season.

Eric Bledsoe helped keep the Hawks at bay by scoring 17 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter.

"You saw the first three quarters, I was horrible," Bledsoe said on Fox Sports Wisconsin. "I was turning the ball over left and right. Missing shots, just felt like I couldn't get it right.

"So I just stayed calm. Stuck with what I've been preparing for and try to finish the game strong."

While the Bucks are ascending in the standings, the Trail Blazers are plummeting after dropping a 115-104 decision at New Orleans on Tuesday. The loss spoiled the debut of Carmelo Anthony and sent Portland to a 1-2 mark on its six-game road trip.

"It felt great just to be back into the flow of the game, be back on the court, be back to where I think I belong," the 35-year-old Anthony said after making just 4 of 14 shots during his 10-point performance.

"As far as conditioning, though, I felt absolutely great out there. There was minor things, but it was more of the flow of things and getting used to how the team plays and sets and getting used to the guys on the team."

Damian Lillard, who averages a team-best 28.6 points and 7.1 assists, will miss his second consecutive game due to back spasms on Thursday. The four-time All-Star has been nursing a balky back since Portland's 114-106 home loss to Toronto on Nov. 13, per Blazers reporter Casey Holdahl.

Fellow guard Anfernee Simons (left ankle), who replaced Lillard in the lineup, and center Hassan Whiteside (right hip) are considered questionable to face Milwaukee.

The Trail Blazers made news off the court on Wednesday by waiving six-time All-Star Pau Gasol, who did not play a game for the team this season while attempting to recover from surgery on his left foot. The 39-year-old veteran will continue his rehabilitation in Portland while discussing a coaching job with the team.
