Lillard, Simons take bond into starting roles with Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The Trail Blazers' new starting duo of Damian Lillard and Anfernee Simons has been years in the making.

Even though Portland had a long-established backcourt with Lillard and CJ McCollum, behind the scenes Lillard helped guide Simons' development. That mentorship became important last year when Lillard was injured, McCollum was traded to New Orleans and Simons was thrust into a starting role.

And it's going to be key again this season, when Lillard and Simons share the court.
