PORTLAND: LAST SEASON: 49-33, lost in first round.
COACH: Terry Stotts (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Damian Lillard (26.9 ppg), G CJ McCollum (21.4 ppg), F Al-Farouq Aminu (9.3 ppg), F Maurice Harkless, (6.5 ppg), C Jusuf Nurkic (14.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Ed Davis, G Shabazz Napier
KEY ADDITIONS: G Seth Curry PLAYER TO WATCH: Zach Collins. Now in his second year, the 7-footer out of Gonzaga appears poised for a breakout. He'll be watched after the departure of Davis, who was the spark off the bench for the Blazers last season. Davis was prized for his defense, and Collins seems to have the same impact. A plus was Collins' performance in the NBA Summer League.
OUTLOOK: The Trail Blazers have one of the best backcourts in the league with Lillard and McCollum, but they're up against a Western Conference field that includes the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets, as well as the LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers. The Blazers are likely still a playoff team, but they're in a crowded group sitting just below the sure-bets. Like last year, a lot will depend on how the core of Lillard, McCollum and Nurkic perform.
OKLAHOMA CITY: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in first round.
COACH: Billy Donovan (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Russell Westbrook (25.4 ppg, 10.3 apg, 10.1 rpg), G Dennis Schroder (19.4 ppg, 6.2 apg, Atlanta), F Paul George (21.9 ppg), F Patrick Patterson (3.9 ppg), C Steven Adams (13.9 ppg, 9.0 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Carmelo Anthony, C Nick Collison
KEY ADDITIONS: Schroder, C Nerlens Noel, G/F Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Schroder. He was a dynamic scorer in Atlanta with a less talented team around him. He'll begin the season as a starter as Andre Roberson recovers from a knee injury and he'll get a chance to seize the job, especially if he can improve defensively. He has been outstanding as a scorer and as a facilitator in the preseason. He could have a big season with Westbrook and George drawing most of the attention. His addition means the Thunder will have five capable scorers in the starting lineup, a rarity for the franchise in recent years.
OUTLOOK: The Thunder shocked many when they were able to keep George this summer, and they also kept versatile, athletic forward Jerami Grant. By making the deal to move Anthony and add Schroder, the Thunder became younger, more athletic and more dynamic. If they can find some outside shooting this season to take advantage of their multiple shot creators, they could make a deep run in the West.
Thunder struggling to shoot straight vs. Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers would love to stay the course when they visit Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder Friday night in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series.

The Thunder, of course, would prefer a much different outcome.

Oklahoma City couldn't shoot worth a hoot from long distance in losing the first two games of the series in Portland, making only 10 of 61 shots (.164) from 3-point range. The Thunder were 5 for 33 in Friday's opener and 5 for 28 in Game 2 on Sunday.

Forward Paul George is 6 for 22 on his 3-point attempts and Russell Westbrook is 1 for 10 in the series. Jerami Grant and Dennis Schroder are both 0 for 8, Terrance Ferguson 2 for 7.

Coach Billy Donovan didn't quarrel with most of the shots taken from beyond the arc by his players, but understands they're going to have to be accurate in Game 3 or the series could end quickly.

"For the most part, we got off fairly decent looks (in Game 2), and we're going to have to take them," Donovan said. "(The Blazers) protect the rim as the ball gets driven downhill, and you can't just force the ball in there. You have to keep the defense somewhat honest by making some of those shots."

Westbrook, in particular, has struggled in the two games. The All-Star point guard had a near triple-double Tuesday with 14 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, but he also had six turnovers and was 5 for 20 from the field, including 1 for 6 on 3-point attempts.

"He probably missed some shots at the rim that he could make, and there were times when we forced some misses," Portland coach Terry Stotts said. "Our guys did a nice job of at least making some of his shots difficult."

Damian Lillard shadowed Westbrook for much of Game 2, recording two blocks and three steals in 37 minutes.

"He's really competitive," Stotts said. "As a group, we're all trying to play defense, but 'Dame' is really focused at both ends of the floor. He knows how important it is.

"Dame's defense has improved over time. He's a much better defensive player than people give him credit for. No question he was locked in tonight."

Lillard also scored 29 points in Game 2 and joined with CJ McCollum, who tallied a game-high 33, to lead Portland's offensive attack. McCollum sank 12 of 22 shots from the field, 3 of 7 from 3-point range and 6 of 6 at the line. Lillard was 4 for 8 from the 3-point line and 5 of 7 from the foul line.

"When you have two guys who can create their shots, create problems for the defense, it makes their teammates better," Stotts said. "Scoring is important in this game. When you have two guys like that, it's hard to replicate."

George said the Thunder shouldn't alter their game plan.

"We have to keep shooting," George said. "We're going to make shots. Keep shooting. We missed shots, so what? Keep shooting."

The Blazers are taking nothing for granted despite holding the 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

"I know how quickly things can change," Lillard said. "A series doesn't start until you win a game on the road. I also know how capable their team is.

"We have to maintain our focus, stay sharp and understand how well we played in the first two games is not going to be good enough in the third game, especially on their home floor. We've got to keep our heads down and keep working."
