Trail Blazers vs San Antonio Spurs Preview 2
Since the miracle at the Rose Garden on Friday night, both the Portland Trail Blazers (41-31) and San Antonio Spurs (57-16) will look to bounce back after tough losses to Western Conference rivals. This is the final meeting between these two teams and Portland can look to take the season series tonight at the AT&T Center.
The Spurs, already without Tim Duncan might also be in more trouble as their leading scorer Manu Ginobili was injured yesterday in a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Portland will need to use this time to work inside the paint and get to the foul line as much as possible. It would be insane if Gerald Wallace bounces back from his 40 point outing last night and who knows how much gas he will have in the tank. If LaMarcus Aldridge, Andre Miller and Wesley Matthews help out tonight, it’ll be great. Nic Batum might be limited since he hurt his ankle last night.
Nothing much has changed since for both teams stat wise, so here’s my previous preview: Trail Blazers vs San Antonio Spurs Preview from March 25
