The Portland Trail Blazers are taking to the road this week as they square off with the San Antonio Spurs. San Antonio will be hosting this game at the AT & T Center located in San Antonio, TX. Portland will come into this game looking for a win after having dropped six out of their last seven matchups. San Antonio will be taking the court on the second night of a back-to-back set, so look for tired legs to play a role in this game.
Portland will be taking the court with a team that is scoring 112 PPG on offense while shooting 44% from the floor. The Trail Blazers will be without big men Pau Gasol and Zach Collins, so look for newcomer Hassan Whiteside (15 PPG, 12 RPG) to play a huge role in this game. Whiteside will be counted on to improve a Portland defense that is surrendering 114 PPG to opposing squads.
San Antonio takes the court in need of a win in a very competitive Southwest division. San Antonio is 11th in the NBA in points scored per game (112) and 3rd in the league in rebounds per game (49). San Antonio will try to control the floor while working the ball in and out between LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar Derozan. San Antonio has dropped five out of their last six games and the Spurs are in desperate need of a big win.
While the Spurs have been able to play really well on the year, the Spurs have a challenge against the Trail Blazers here. What is really good, though, is the fact that the Trail Blazers are coming in with quite a bit of talent and when Aldridge and DeRozan are off the court the Spurs struggle. We like Portland to defeat San Antonio. Final Score Prediction, Portland Trail Blazers win and cover 117 - 112.
