GOLDEN STATE: With so many returners and great depth, the Warriors should dominate again'if they can keep their edge and Draymond Green is able to remain healthy after suffering a knee injury in a season-opening loss to Houston. Head coach Steve Kerr is challenging the team's players to do many things better than they did during last season's run to a second title in three years. Kevin Durant has a year in the system and is coming off his NBA Finals MVP honors, he seems poised to take his game up another notch'with probably slightly less scrutiny than he faced a year ago after leaving Oklahoma City. He and the Warriors look like the clear team to beat once again.
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.
Blazers not offended by Kerr letting players coach

PORTLAND, Ore. -- One of the questions about Wednesday night's matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers at Moda Center is this: Who will hold the clipboard during timeouts for the Warriors?

Coach Steve Kerr spread the task around in Monday's 129-83 undressing of the Suns at Phoenix, turning the duty over to veterans Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and David West. Iguodala also pretty much ran the game-day shootaround.

"I told them (Saturday) we were going to do it this way," Kerr told ESPN. "It's their team. That's one of the first things you have to consider as a coach. It's not my team, it's not (general manager) Bob Myers' team, it's not (owner) Joe Lacob's team although I'm not going to tell Joe that.

"It's the players' team, and they have to take ownership of it. As coaches, our job is to nudge them in the right direction, to guide them, but we don't control them. They determine their own fate. I don't feel like we focused well at all the last month, and it just seemed like the right thing to do. They communicated really well together and drew up some nice plays. It was a good night for the guys."

After the game, Kerr explained his thoughts to Phoenix coach Jay Triano, who said he had no problem with it. Suns guard Jared Dudley said he considered it disrespectful, with backcourt mate Devin Booker having a slightly different view.

"Steve is an easy-going coach who has that relationship with his guys," Booker said. "But if he didn't have four All-Stars, I don't think he'd be doing that."

Portland point guard Damian Lillard said he would welcome such an opportunity.

"I'm always thinking situations and what I would do or what play I would call," said Lillard, the Blazers' team captain. "Coach (Terry) Stotts lets me call a lot of plays throughout the game, anyway. I'm always trying to figure out coverages and what we should do to take advantage of the other team. My mind is already working that way. I think it's pretty cool for coaches to challenge players mentally like that."

Does Stotts consider it disrespectful?

"No," he said. "I think (Kerr) is coaching his team, regardless of who's on the other side. Coaches do different things with their teams. It's that time of year. If you've gone to three straight (NBA) Finals and you're searching for something to do, why not?"

The Warriors (44-13) had lost three of four before regaining their mojo in a 3-0 homestand in which they shot 55.3 percent from the field and 45.1 from the 3-point line while averaging 124 points.

They lead the NBA in scoring (115.8), field goal percentage (51.1), 3-point percentage (39.3), free throw percentage (80.9), assists per game (44.4) and blocks per game (7.95).

Golden State has won its last seven meetings with Portland, including the first of three this regular season. Guard Klay Thompson needs 22 points to become the 10th player in franchise history to score 10,000.

The Blazers (31-26) would love to pull off the upset, especially after following up Lillard's 50-point game Friday in Sacramento with a 115-96 home loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday.

"It's a big game for our team," Lillard said. "It would be great go into the (All-Star) break with a win against the defending champs, especially with how the standings are shaking out right now. It's a game we need to win. It's going to be exciting, it's going to be loud, and it's going to be really competitive."

Are the Warriors as good as they were a year ago?

"Their record says they're the same team," Lillard said. "The one thing that remains is how explosive they are. You could be up 12 (points) and three minutes later, you could be down 10 with the firepower they have and them being an elite team. We have to have that healthy respect for them, but also understand that anybody could be beaten.

"You can play great defense and they're still going to make shots, they're that good. You have to be able to put points up. You have to score with them. You have to have some resistance, and you have to make them work for everything they get. You have to attack them back -- use your offense as defense."

The Blazers are listing center Jusuf Nurkic (calf, back, oblique) as questionable, but he practiced Tuesday and seems likely to be in the lineup against the Warriors.
