The Spurs have been red hot as the club has won 11 straight games with seven straight coming on the road. The Spurs offense has been surging as the club has averaged nearly 105 points and 47.7% shooting over their past five games. San Antonio is getting great production from point guard Tony Parker who has averaged 29 points and over 11 assists over his past three games. What has been impressive about this Spurs run is they are getting production from not only their big three in Duncan, Parker and Richard Jefferson but the supporting cast is coming up big on the road. Last night Matt Bonner poured in 20 points and Gary Neal 14 points off the bench in the teams win at Utah.
This Portland Trailblazer team has underachieved this season as they stand at mediocre 17-16 this season. They have already lost five games on their home court in 17 games. Portland has been exposed by quality teams by poor play in the guard positions. Raymond Felton, Jamal Crawford and Wesley Mathews all combine for very low shooting percentages. The smart coaches like Gregg Popovich will have his defense guard LaMarcus Aldridge and Gerald Wallace and force the inefficient Trailblazers guards to take a high volume of shots. Another issue facing the Trailblazers is they don’t get much production from their bench guys. They are too dependent on Gerald Wallace and LaMarcus Aldridge to carry this team. Aldridge missed much of last week with a sprained ankle and now he must test it on the back end of a back to back. The Trailblazers have dropped four of their past six games. Their defense has not been good allowing their past five opponents to shoot for 46.7% from the field. They have been poor on the offensive end making just 42.9% from the floor in that span.
