Spurs on a seven game winning streak and hosting the Blazers with a back to back game. Portland a top four seed now and won 2 games to one against the Spurs this season and on a three game winning streak, two of it from the road.
The Spurs on the other side, they are the best team now in NBA with the longest streak. With Rudy Gay coming back from injury and the starters just play limited minutes against the worst Knicks, they looks ready against this game. With Jakob Poeltl, an NBA player from Austria who started and fitting well with Lamarcus Aldridge. Since he started Spurs are 8 and 1.
Match up to watch
Derrick White vs CJ Macollum/ Damian Lillard
The Blazers duo playing well against the Spurs in three games. Lillard an All Star guard scored 30 points per game and CJ added 26 per game this on three games. But on this two wins, Derrick White was out and he is the best defensive guard of the Spurs, he will use his length to bother the CJ and Dame.
Addition with this is Jakob Poeltl, playing consistent minutes now and contributing big time. He can defend Jusuf Nurkic the best big man of Blazers.
Demar Derozan got some help now and contented to be a playmaker of his team. Lamarcus Aldridge was hot on this winning streak.
So Spurs fan, this game would be an exciting one from start to finish, but San Antonio will likely to take this one.
