I’m not saying that this series is over because they say that the series don’t start until someone loses a home game but this is getting ugly. I will say this though: the San Antonio Spurs are surgically dismantling the Portland Trail Blazers in this series.
For the first two games, the operation has been a success and the chance for Portland winning this series is basically on life support. For the second straight game the Spurs used a huge second quarter to run the Trail Blazers back to Oregon winning 114-97. They now own a commanding 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Semi-finals.
Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs with 20 points on an extremely efficient 8-9 shooting. Tony Parker had a double-double scoring 16 points and dishing out ten assists. Tim Duncan scored ten points and grabbed six rebounds. Nicolas Batum led the Trail Blazers with 21 points. Damian Lillard had 19 points while LaMarcus Aldridge was held in check with 16. Game three is on the road. Here’s what I learned in Texas to take on the trip.
