After great stretch for a couple of weeks to get back in the playoff picture the Blazers have fallen down to earth with 5 losses in their last 7 games. They have recently lost badly to the Thunder and the Warriors, giving up 128 points in each game, and now face another elite team in the Spurs.
The Spurs have been impressive all season and they are undefeated at home. Their last 2 wins have come against the legit teams of the Clippers and Thunder.
In their last games the Spurs beat the L.A. Clippers 108-87 and the Blazers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 128-94.
The Blazers have a solid offense ranking 8th in points per game, but only 19th in opponents’ points allowed. That offense will be tested, big time, in this game facing a San Antonio squad that leads the NBA in scoring defense.
Damian Lillard leads the Blazers in scoring and he and fellow G C.J. McCollum. It is pretty obvious they need to play better than they did in the Thunder game, as while they did combine for 36 points they also combined to shoot only 12/33 from the floor.
The Blazers MUST forget about the bad loss to OKC where they shot a paltry FG% of 34.1% while allowing the Thunder to shoot 59% from the field.
The Blazers are 0-2 facing the Spurs this season losing at home and on the road where they lost by 12 points.
The Blazers are only 14-21 on the road this season and they have lost their last 5 games away from the Great Northwest.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs not only have the best defense in the league, but also rank 6th in points per game.
While the Spurs are still getting solid production from the original Big 3 of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili their 2 leading scorers are emerging superstar Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge.
San Antonio is also a very deep team and you can see that ranking 6th in scoring and only having 3 players that are averaging in double figures.
The Spurs have won 12 of their last 13 games.
The Blazers are in the 6th spot in the West and the Spurs are in the 2nd spot.
This game is the 2nd of a 4-game road trip for the Blazers.
