In their last game the Blazers lost to the Houston Rockets. The Spurs last played Wednesday when they lost to the Lakers.
Last season, the teams split the season series, and through two games this year the teams have each won a game. The Spurs hold the all-time record having bested the Trail Blazers by a slim 83 win margin of their 165 matches.
Portland Trail Blazers
Since clinching their playoff berth the Blazers haven’t approached games with the same intensity. This has transpired in three losses in their past five games.
Currently Portland is seeded third, yet they haven’t technically solidified this position. Although the undermanned Blazers fell behind by 24 points in Houston they fought back to tie and almost pulled off the upset.
Damian Lillard (ankle) didn’t play, but is anticipated back for Saturday. Likewise, Ed Davis (ankle) was out versus Houston and questionable Saturday against the Spurs.
Maurice Harkless and CJ Wilcox remain out with knee injuries at varying degrees of recovery.
San Antonio Spurs
Technically the Spurs can still catch the Blazers to claim the third seed. A few things need to happen for that to come to fruition though. San Antonio would need to win out and Portland would need to lose their final three games.
It’s a long shot, but still in play until either the Blazers win another game or Spurs lose another game. The more logical objective for the Spurs is trying to gain the four seed to still ensure home court.
They’ll need to perform with more urgency than they did in LA however as that loss pushed them below the Jazz.
Kawhi Leonard returned to New York to continue rehab for his quadriceps tendinopathy. Leonard’s return remains the biggest question regarding the Spurs in terms of their potential to make a long run in the postseason.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
The overriding factor is the Spurs are the more desperate team and play great at home. San Antonio is inspired to gain a home court seed which is still in their grasp.
Utah currently holds the fourth seed and the tiebreaker on San Antonio who trail them by a game, so the Spurs can’t gain home court without help. Still, they’ll be looking to take care of the business they can particularly after the loss to the Lakers.
