PHOENIX: LAST SEASON: 21-61, missed playoffs.
COACH: Igor Kokoskov (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Devin Booker (24.9 ppg), G Shaquille Harrison (6.6 ppg), F Trevor Ariza (11.7 ppg, Houston), F Ryan Anderson (9.3 ppg), C Deandre Ayton (rookie, 20.1 ppg at Arizona).
KEY LOSSES: F Marquese Chriss, C Alex Len, F Jared Dudley
KEY ADDITIONS: Ariza, Anderson, Ayton, G Mikhal Bridges
PLAYERS TO WATCH: First and foremost is Ayton, the 7-foot-1 multi-skilled big man chosen No. 1 overall in the draft. Kokoskov sees him as a rim protector on defense and he possesses a soft outside touch to go with bruising, athletic inside moves. The question is how he handles the much tougher world of the NBA. Also, Booker. He underwent hand surgery and missed the preseason, athough he did a lot of left-handed workouts. He wants to be back by the season opener and is anxious to prove he was worth that five-year, $158 million contract he signed in the offseason.
OUTLOOK: It's been a long time since this franchise was relevant and there is more turmoil as this season begins. Nine days before the opener, Suns owner Robert Sarver fired general manager Ryan McDonough. There is no true proven point guard on the roster and who knows whether the team can find one. The hope rests with Booker, Ayton and Josh Jackson, who will come off the bench at least initially. Kokoskov is widely respected. But it's hard to see that eight-year absence from the postseason ending anytime soon.
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.
Slumping Trail Blazers look to get going against Suns

PORTLAND, Oregon -- Two teams headed in the wrong direction hope to make a U-turn Thursday night when the Portland Trail Blazers play host to the Phoenix Suns at Moda Center.

The Trail Blazers (13-11) have lost eight of their last 11 games as they have fallen from the top spot in the Western Conference to No. 8.

The Suns (4-20) have dropped six straight and will be without their top two scorers -- guard Devin Booker (hamstring) and forward T.J. Warren (ankle) -- when they face the Blazers.

Phoenix has lost by at least 14 points in each of its last four games.

"I thought, honestly, that we'd gotten out of that rut of losing by 20 points," veteran guard Jamal Crawford told reporters. "We started being competitive. We were in games. For whatever reason, we've taken a step back."

"It's really frustrating," guard Troy Daniels said. "We all want to compete. We all want to win. Nobody is out there trying to lose a game. But when things aren't going your way, it's hard to keep guys upbeat."

First-year coach Igor Kokoskov said the Suns must play with a "greater sense of urgency."

"Back to fundamentals," Kokoskov said. "There's nothing cute about this game. No one's going to have mercy on us. Nobody is going to be sensitive. It's gladiators. Once you step into the octagon, it's nothing but a basketball fight. We found out (Tuesday against Sacramento, in a 122-105 Kings' victory)."

Phoenix has been starting one rookie, center Deandre Ayton, and there's a chance a second rookie, De'Anthony Melton, could start at point guard in place of Elie Okobo after Melton scored a season-high 21 points against the Kings. Even so, Kokoskov doesn't look at them as saviors.

"For us to expect (Ayton) is going to win every game for us and dominate -- it's not happening," the Suns coach said. "We have to be realistic and not put too much on these kids."

During games of the past three weeks, the Blazers have typically fallen behind early in games, and their overall defense has taken a dip. Since a 100-94 win over Boston on Nov. 11, Portland has yielded an average of 118.2 points per game.

"We really want to snap out of it," Portland point guard Damian Lillard said. "We know what it is - we're not defending well. Our urgency, our desire to just go out there and win a game, is not at the level we need it to be."

The Blazers are not playing confidently, and they're not getting the kind production off the bench that they got earlier in the season. They know they need to get things turned around before it's too late.

"We need to find a way," center Jusuf Nurkic said. "We're broken players right now. Nothing is going how we want, but we have (almost) 60 games left. We need to show some pride and show which way we want to go."

"We need to get a win in the worst way possible," guard CJ McCollum added. "I'd say we're pretty desperate right now."
