Boy, is this getting ugly.

I bet even Mike Tirico didn’t even see this coming. The San Antonio Spurs are one game away from the Western Conference Finals by handing another beating aka whipping aka lesson to the Portland Trail Blazers 118-103.

San Antonio fans, this score doesn’t even begin to describe the dismantling that your Spurs did to these guys. These teams meet for Game four Monday night in Portland.

I wonder what is going to happen first, will Portland win a game or will Charles Barkley actually apologize for calling women in San Antonio fat. Charles Barkley said that it will be a cold day in Hades (I’ll say Hades for the young readers out there, Air Alamo is a family friendly website) before he apologizes. It might be a cold day down there before the Portland Trail Blazers win a game the way this series is going. No team has EVER come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series (psst…these guys won’t either) but the Portland Trail Blazers came close back in 2003 winning three straight against the Dallas Mavericks before falling in that first round matchup. (Psst…that won’t happen either.) Tony Parker led the San Antonio Spurs with 29 points again outplaying Damian Lillard (more on that later.)

Kawhi Leonard had a double-double scoring 16 points and grabbed  ten rebounds. Tim Duncan had his best game scoring of the series with 18. LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds but only shot 9-23 from the floor. Wesley Matthews had 22 points and Damian Lillard had 21. Again, stats can lie and the Blazers were padding stats in the second half…again because thee game was over in the first half…again. Anyway here’s what I learned.

Who wins the Spurs-Blazers series?
