PORTLAND: GUARDS: Portland will turn point guard duties over to rookie DAMIAN LILLARD. The leap from Big Sky Conference to NBA will be a big one, but Lillard is an efficient scorer who can manage the offense . . . WESLEY MATTHEWS is more of a glue guy. He can't create his own offense, but he can heat up as a streaky catch-and-shoot guy . . . RONNIE PRICE should emerge as Lillard's top backup, a role he's filled at numerous stops . . . Second-rounder WILL BARTON could emerge as a rotation player. He's a versatile wing who must prove he can play off the ball . . . SASHA PAVLOVIC will play both the two and three, and can still stroke it from long distance . . . NOLAN SMITH, a misstep of the last regime, is a fringe roster player . . . ELLIOT WILLIAMS, a defensive-minded combo guard, tore his Achilles in mid-September and expects to miss the entire season. FORWARDS: LaMARCUS ALDRIDGE had a couple of health scares over the past six months, but he should enter the season 100 percent. He's clearly Portland's best player . . . NICOLAS BATUM felt rightly disrespected by his secondary role in Portland. All signs point to a bigger role in 2012-13 . . . VICTOR CLAVER is an athletic scrapper who won't do much offensively even if he does get big minutes . . . JOEL FREELAND could become their first big man off the bench . . . JARED JEFFRIES is still relevant as a defensive specialist . . . The highlight of LUKE BABBITT's career might be that mention on Onion:Sportsdome. CENTERS: J.J. HICKSON is a black hole on offense and a liability on defense, but he can score and rebound, which is good enough to be the starting center in Portland's weak frontcourt . . . MEYERS LEONARD might not be quite ready for 30-plus minutes, but he'll have to learn on the fly due to Portland's lack of veteran bigs. He has some long-term upside as a 7-footer with some nice athleticism and touch inside 10 feet.
NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: This offense will belong to ERIC GORDON. He'll get over the fact that the Hornets matched his offer from Phoenix, and as long as his surgically-repaired knee holds up, he's one of the most complete young scorers in the NBA . . . The Hornets reached for AUSTIN RIVERS with the 10th pick because Monty Williams wants to coach him and thinks he can be an NBA point guard. Rivers has the handle, but his athleticism is ordinary and, more importantly, he has never shown a PG mentality at any level . . . GREIVIS VASQUEZ is the closest thing to a true point guard on this roster. He'll see solid minutes assuming Rivers' adjustment is a tough one . . . Well-rounded ROGER MASON JR. will also provide point guard depth . . . XAVIER HENRY hasn't lived up to his reputation as a shooter, but the Hornets can be patient with him . . . Rookie BRIAN ROBERTS has had a strong enough preseason to likely earn a roster spot. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS should step right in as a starter. His offensive game is further along than he gets credit for, and on the defensive end he's an absolute force from the basket out to the perimeter . . . He'll probably miss having Dwight Howard drawing in defenses, but RYAN ANDERSON has always been a very good three-point shooter. He and Davis are unique enough talents to share the court even if they're both power forwards . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU made some strides on the defensive end late last season, which is what will get him minutes under Williams. He's underwhelming on the offensive end . . . If HAKIM WARRICK couldn't succeed as Steve Nash's pick-and-roll partner, it seems unlikely he'll ever help in New Orleans . . . Rookie DARIUS MILLER is looking to establish some kind of role with the team . . . LANCE THOMAS is doubtful to earn a salary to pay off his jewelry debts. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ has always had the ability to protect the rim and does a decent job in space. Look for him to end up grabbing the bulk of minutes in the middle . . . JASON SMITH gives the Hornets a more offensive-minded option off the bench.

*Trail Blazers-Hornets Preview* ===============================


Portland (25-26) at New Orleans (18-34), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Portland Trail Blazers haven't been able to stop anybody lately, something they'll need to fix quickly if they hope to stay in the Western Conference playoff picture.

Stopping their current losing streak may not be easy against a New Orleans Hornets team that hopes to build on its recent success.

The Blazers will try to get back on track with their sixth straight win over the Hornets on Wednesday night when they wrap up a long road swing.

Following a season-worst six-game losing streak, Portland (25-27) appeared to be headed in the right direction with five wins in its next seven contests.

The Blazers, however, have followed that up with four straight road losses, the latest a 117-104 defeat in Miami on Tuesday as the Heat closed on a 16-2 run. As a result, Portland has fallen further behind eighth-place Houston in the West standings.

"I thought it was a good effort by our team," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "Miami's one of the best if not the best team in the league right now and they are playing at a high level. We matched it for about 44 minutes."

Damian Lillard bounced back from his worst performance as a pro - a 1-of-16 shooting, four-point effort in Orlando on Sunday - with 33 points, but Portland continues to have defensive problems. The Blazers have allowed an average of 112.5 points on 53.6 percent shooting - including 43.8 percent from 3-point range - during their skid.

The Blazers also allow an NBA-worst 45.7 points in the paint per game. That's likely to be an area of concern against a New Orleans team that's averaging 45.0 points in the lane this month.

The Hornets held a 46-36 advantage inside on Dec. 16, but Portland escaped with a 95-94 home win on Lillard's game-winning 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left.

After playing eight of nine on the road, Monty Williams' club hopes to take advantage of a stretch with nine of its next 12 in New Orleans. The Hornets have bounced back from a four-game losing streak to win three of four after beating Detroit 105-86 on Monday.

"We wanted to finish this road trip well, and I think we showed some growth in our team," forward Al-Farouq Aminu said.

Robin Lopez has played a key role, averaging 19.7 points on 63.2 percent shooting in his last three games. Ryan Anderson had 31 points against the Pistons, and has made 30 of 65 (46.2 percent) from 3-point range in his last nine.

Anderson was 7 of 10 from long distance on the way to 26 points in the first meeting, while Greivis Vasquez had 23 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds.

J.J. Hickson had 24 points and 16 rebounds for Portland in that contest, but has averaged 10.0 points over his last five games. LaMarcus Aldridge, though, has scored 27.4 per game on 60.2 percent shooting in that stretch.

Portland has averaged 102.5 points in its last five games and should be able to find open looks against New Orleans, which has allowed 101.9 points per game over its last 13.

The Hornets have won five of seven at home, while the Blazers have lost eight of nine on the road.
