Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the San Antonio Spurs and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Portland Trail Blazers 114-81.

Point guard Dejounte Murray has led the way so far for San Antonio, as he has 28 points and seven assists in addition to six rebounds. Portland has enjoyed the tag-team combination of shooting guard Ben McLemore and center Drew Eubanks. The former has 23 points, while the latter has 17 points and four assists along with seven boards.

The Trail Blazers have lost 86% of their games in which they were down going into the fourth quarter. Barring a miraculous turnaround, this matchup will end the same way.

What to Know

The San Antonio Spurs will take on the Portland Trail Blazers at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter after having had a few days off. The two teams each escaped (but just barely!) with wins against their previous opponents.

On Sunday, the Spurs narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the Golden State Warriors 110-108. San Antonio can attribute much of their success to shooting guard Josh Richardson, who had 25 points.

Speaking of close games: on Monday Portland sidestepped the Detroit Pistons for a 119-115 victory. Portland’s success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but guard Brandon Williams led the charge as he had 23 points in addition to six rebounds. Williams had some trouble finding his footing against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, so this was a step in the right direction.
