Blazers want to take next step after playoff success

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The Trail Blazers got a taste of playoff success last season and that's shifted their mindset. Simply making the playoffs is no longer the goal, a championship is.

Damian Lillard is once again joined in the backcourt by CJ McCollum but the supporting cast changed in the offseason with the Blazers bringing in Hassan Whiteside, Anthony Tolliver, Kent Bazemore and Pau Gasol.

"It'll be tough in the West, but it's always tough," McCollum said. "A lot of teams are good, a lot of teams are deep. Obviously, injuries will play a factor in what happens this year - that's always a factor as the playoffs get closer and closer, the team that stays healthy has the best chance. Hopefully we can be one of those teams that's healthy."
