I was high on the Trail Blazers when the season started and was shocked to see them get off to the start they did. Portland has a solid starting lineup that underperformed at the beginning of the season. Even with some injuries, the Trail Blazers seem to be finding some traction as the season reaches towards the All-Star break. Portland has won 5 of their last 7 and saw their 4 game win streak come to an end against the Nuggets. The Trail Blazers have done well recently with wins over: Utah, LAL, HOU, and IND. The Spurs are 8-16 on the road. I'll side with the Trail Blazers offense to get it done at home, against an average defense at best. Final score prediction, Trail Blazers will win and cover, 117-112.
