The Spurs and Trail Blazers meet out west for a Wednesday night show down as Tim Duncan and Damien Lillard head line a marquee match up in the Western Conference.
Also head lining this one will be the return of LaMarcus Aldridge.
Aldridge left the Trail Blazers this past off season and decided to sign with the Spurs. It will be interesting to see not just how the fans, but players react to his return.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs and LaMarcus Aldridge continue to put up wins and he just keeps getting better and better as the games go on.
Aldridge decided to leave the Trail Blazers and sign an 80 million dollar contract with San Antonio during the free agency rush. This came after 5 playoff appearances in 9 season with Portland.
In his final 5 seasons with the Trail Blazers, Aldridge averaged at least 21.0 points per game. However, in his early tenure with the Spurs, he’s hitting just over 15.1 points per game and shooting a career low 45.7 percent from the field.
Coming off a route win over the Kings on Monday, Aldridge did play one of his better games going 7 of 12 from the field. It was Kawhi Leonard who stepped up big time as he turned in 24 points on 10 of 13 shooting.
As a team, the Spurs are scoring over 102 points per game and conceding just 91.7. They are 3-2 SU on the road this season.
The Trail Blazers had built a solid foundation with Lillard, Aldridge, Wesley Matthews, Robin Lopez, and Nicolas Batum to have 5 playoff appearances over the past 9 seasons.
However, their inability to make it no further than the Western Conference Finals may have led to the breaking of their roster. All but Lillard stepped out the door this past off season and now he is left to rebuild with a younger core.
The number 1 issue right now for Portland has been on the defensive side of the ball. Through their first 8 games, they’re allowing 102.8 points against and continue to get beat inside. Lack of size and depth has really hurt them.
With all those free agents leaving Portland, the only guy besides Lillard to step up has been CJ McCollum.
The Horizon League star has averaged over 20 points per game and has put up at least 16 points in his last 5.
If Portland really hopes to compete in a crowded Western Conference, getting help from their bench and others is going to be a must. As right now, they just do not have enough fire power to compete with the top tier teams.
