The previous meeting between the San Antonio Spurs and the Portland Trail Blazers was a bit of a limited matchup with LaMarcus Aldridge sitting out with an injury. Even so, the Trail Blazers should have had the upper hand with the Spurs playing that game without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, and fan favorite Aron Baynes. The Spurs came out victorious in a close game– 111-109. Here is the breakdown of three key goals for the Spurs, so that they can push their win streak to eight.
Joel Freeland (Right MCL Sprain)
Mo Williams (Strained Right Hip)
