WASHINGTON: LAST SEASON: 43-39, lost in Eastern Conference first round.
COACH: Scott Brooks (third season, 10th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G John Wall (19.4 ppg, 9.6 apg), G Bradley Beal (22.6 ppg), F Otto Porter Jr. (14.7 ppg), F Markieff Morris, (11.5 ppg), C Dwight Howard (16.6 ppg, 12.5 rpg, Charlotte).
KEY LOSSES: C Marcin Gortat, F Mike Scott, G Tim Frazier
KEY ADDITIONS: Howard, F Jeff Green, G Austin Rivers, F Troy Brown.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: As has been the case for a while, the Wizards will go as far as their All-Star backcourt of Wall and Beal take them. Brooks wants more 3s, especially from Beal and Porter, who made 44.1 percent from beyond the arc last season. Another key will be Howard; he missed all of training camp with a bad back.
OUTLOOK: They've been knocking on the door of a run to the conference finals without ever quite taking that next step. They lack discipline on defense, for one thing, a point that Brooks makes over and over again, without making any progress. There seems to be more depth this time, with players such as Green and Rivers offering hope for the second unit and the occasional rest for Wall, in particular. One major question is going to be how much Howard helps or hurts ' on the floor and in the locker room.
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.
Wizards hope road paves winning path starting at Blazers

PORTLAND, Oregon - The Washington Wizards will arrive in Portland for a Monday night date with the Trail Blazers at Moda Center frustrated and hungry for a win.

The Wizards are 0-2 after successive down-to-the-wire losses to Miami (113-112) and Toronto (117-113) as they begin a five-game road trip. Already, the players are beginning to feel inward pressure to get on the winning track.

"We have to go out and win, and we realize that," Washington guard Bradley Beal. "We're pretty much done talking about it. Coach (Scott Brooks) is sick of hearing it. Ted (Leonsis, the team owner) is damn sure sick of hearing it. We just got to go out and win games, man."

The Wizards' frustration boiled over in the fourth quarter of Saturday's loss to the Raptors when Brooks was ejected after a beef with an official. Afterward, the gentlemanly Brooks was apologetic.

"I've been talking to our guys, that we have to play through whatever we think that's against us," Brooks said. "Just play through it. Quite honestly, I set a poor example. I'm disappointed in myself."

Monday's game matches two of the best backcourt pairs in the NBA - Washington's Beal and John Wall and Portland's Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. in the teams' last meeting on Dec. 5, 2017, Beal exploded for a career-high 51 points as the Wizards cold-cocked the Blazers 106-92 at Moda Center. It was the most points ever scored by a Blazer opponent in Portland.

"(Beal) is a great player, but we can't let him go off like that again," said McCollum, who had principal defensive duties on Beal during the 51-point performance.

The Blazers are off to a 2-0 start after home victories over the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs. In a 121-108 victory over the Spurs Saturday night, Lillard and McCollum warmed up for the showdown with Beal and Wall by combining for 53 points. Lillard and McCollum each made 9 of 15 shots from the field, and Lillard put on a near flawless offensive display with 29 points, nine assists and no turnovers in his 30 minutes.

Portland coach Terry Stotts is attempting to use Lillard and McCollum together more often this season, with newly acquired reserves Seth Curry and Nik Stauskas now aboard to bolster the offensive output of the second unit.

"Just being out there together - even in practice - helps make us more efficient," Lillard said. "The game comes easier when I can go off the ball, then I'm on the ball, and it's just like random."

McCollum, a natural shooting guard, enjoys taking a turn at point guard to spell Lillard and allow him to spot up for some 3-point opportunities.

"When we're on the court, there's problems (for the defense)," McCollum said. "A lot of problems. If we're taking advantage of spacing and opportunities to attack, if we're being efficient in how we're playing, we'll be a very successful team."
