Popovich: Team defense sucks

Another game which the San Antonio Spurs blew another lead in the fourth quarter. They even started with a nine-point advantage but lose in a couple of minutes. They had no answers on the roaring Blazers backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Portland outscored San Antonio 39-25.

Kerry Eggers: Gregg Popovich, asked what specifically the Spurs need to improve on defensively: “Oh c’mon, I’m not going to do a clinic. … the defense sucks.”

This one of those games that San Antonio losing game because of a meltdown. Perimeter defense had no answer to the Blazers who made nine from the arc in the fourth quarter out of their 15 made. Gillard continues to find his guys open which Gary Trent had 4 made and Carmelo Anthony added three.

San Antonio Spurs are now four games out of playoff race at the eighth seed. The first time they had a losing season since 1997. The lack of consistency, bad rotation ruined the Spurs season. If they continue on losing they could be in the lottery this June.
