The San Antonio Spurs (48-14) will look for yet another home win as they host the Portland Trail Blazers (28-32) in San Antonio. This will be the Spurs and Blazers last meeting of the season with both teams splitting the first two contests in Portland.  The last game between San Antonio and Portland saw the Blazers win 98-90 in Portland. Tony Parker led the Spurs with 21 points and 5 assists with Tim Duncan chipping in with 16 points, 6 rebounds and 2 blocks. Portland was paced by Damian Lilllard’s 29 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. The Spurs are coming off a hard-earned 101-83 win at home over the Bulls. Tim Duncan led the Spurs with 18 points, 10 rebounds, 5 blocks and Manu Ginobili finished with 18 points and 9 assists. The Blazers are coming off a 85-91 loss to the Grizzlies in Memphis. Nicolas Batum finished with 10 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. And as the Spurs get set to face the Blazers without injured All-Star guard Parker, here are five things to watch for during tonight's game: • The Spurs have outscored the last three opponents in the paint by 20 points per game. • Portland is just one of five NBA teams that Duncan averages less than 19 points per game against in his career. • Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge has averaged 25.3 points in his last four matchups with the Spurs. • The Blazers have gone 3-3 in its last six games played in San Antonio. • In two games against the Spurs this season, Lillard is averaging 24.5 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 1 steal.
