Atlanta Hawks vs. Portland Trail Blazers prediction and preview

Josh Smith

Bryant Knox previews the Portland Trail Blazers Nov. 12 matchup against the San Antonio Spurs. Like the Blazers, the Atlanta Hawks are in a bit of a rebuilding mode right now, and these are two teams who will be competing against each other not just on the court come Monday, but in the free-agent market come next summer. The key matchup is going to be between Nicolas Batum and Josh Smith. Wesley Matthews is probable with a back injury.
