UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.
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.

*Jazz-Trail Blazers Preview* ============================


Utah (36-36) at Portland (33-38), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Utah Jazz finally won back-to-back games this week despite losing a key bench contributor in the process.

Now they want to figure out how to get the job done outside Salt Lake City.

The playoff-hopeful Jazz will try to end their longest road losing streak in 31 seasons Friday night and drop the Portland Trail Blazers further back in the Western Conference race.

Having lost four straight and 12 of 15 heading into a pair of home games, Utah defeated Philadelphia 107-91 on Monday and Phoenix 103-88 on Wednesday.

The Jazz (36-36) had not posted consecutive victories since a 3-0 stretch encompassing the All-Star break Feb. 12-19. They were seventh in the West at that point but have since dropped to ninth, chasing the Los Angeles Lakers for the eighth and final playoff spot.

Wednesday's win, though, came at a price with Enes Kanter suffering a dislocated left shoulder. The second-year center, averaging 7.2 points and 4.3 rebounds, vowed he would return this season, but that's questionable.

"To be honest, the game was for the playoffs, but when (Kanter) went down I had to step up even more," said Al Jefferson, who matched Gordon Hayward for the team lead with 25 points. "We're going to fight for him to the end, make his injury worth something."

The Jazz open a stretch of six of seven in Salt Lake City on Saturday against Brooklyn, but first they'll try to notch their first road win since the All-Star break.

Utah's nine-game losing streak as the visitor is its longest since a 17-game slide Nov. 21, 1981-Feb. 6, 1982. However, the Jazz were competitive in last week's three-game trip through Texas, losing by an average of 6.4 points.

The Jazz had won five of six in Portland - and five in a row in this series - prior to a 105-99 loss Feb. 2 in the most recent meeting. Utah defeated the Trail Blazers 86-77 the previous night in Salt Lake City.

Portland (33-38) visits the Jazz again Monday following Saturday's game at Golden State, but first must try to recover from two blowout losses. The Blazers, who have lost 15 of 23 to fall to 11th in the West, fell 103-83 at Oklahoma City on Sunday and 111-93 to the Nets on Wednesday - their most lopsided home loss since Dec. 8.

"It was embarrassing," said Damian Lillard, who had five turnovers and shot 1 for 7 inside the 3-point arc. "I don't know any other way to say it."

Lillard's 49 points and 13 assists led Portland in the first two meetings with Utah, though he didn't have to face fellow point guard Mo Williams, who was recovering from thumb surgery.

Hayward (sprained shoulder) also was sidelined for both of those games. The third-year swingman is averaging a team-best 17.0 points with 16 3-pointers in 29 attempts since coach Tyrone Corbin re-inserted him into the starting lineup seven games ago.

LaMarcus Aldridge led the Blazers with 24 points Wednesday, but it's uncertain if there will be any lingering effects from a sprained right ankle he suffered in the first half. The All-Star forward had double-doubles in the two matchups versus Utah and has seven in his past nine games overall, averaging 24.0 points and 10.9 rebounds.
