Trail Blazers vs. Spurs Game Thread


After losing two straight, the season doesn't get any easier for the Trail Blazers, who face the league's best team, the San Antonio Spurs.Back on December 12th, the Spurs handled the Blazers 95-78 and left no doubt who the superior team was. But, this time around, the game will be played in the Rose Garden. Although Portland's dropped two straight at the RG, they always seem to get up for the big games.

Portland did a phenomenal job on the glass against the Celtics on Thursday, winning the rebounding battle 49-42, and they'll have to do the same against Tim Duncan and DeJuan Blair of the San Antonio Spurs. In that game the guards really showed up on the backboard, Wesley pulled down 7, Dre 5 and even Patty & Rudy combined for 6. If the Blazers can continue to own the glass, their chances of pulling off the upset increase exponentially. These aren't your Dad's Spurs though. SA is #5 in both points (104) and FG% (.470), so Portland must bring the defense and keep this a long scoring affair. The once grind-it-out Spurs, now love to run and gun. continue
