*NBA ATS Matchup Report*

After the TrailBlazers began the season almost unbeatable at home winning 11 of their first 12 games at the Rose Garden they have now lost 4 of their last 5 games in their house.

The Spurs have lost 6 straight against the Blazers in Portland.

In last night’s game facing the Lakers the Blazers scored a franchise low 7 points in the first quarter, only shot 41% from the floor, and were dominated on the boards. Come on! 7 points in the first quarter?

The Blazers need a better start tonight and they need to play solid D facing a Spurs’ offense that is averaging 107 ppg in their last 3 games and ranks 5th in the league in scoring.

Even with Manu Ginobili out the Spurs are still winning and PG Tony Parker (19.5 ppg) has been en fuego and in his last 3 games averaging 29 ppg and 11.7 assists per game.

The Tim Duncan vs. LaMarcus Aldridge match up is key tonight and even though Aldridge is in his prime and made his first All Star team this season Duncan is not done yet and in his last game scored 20 points and pulled down 7 boards.

San Antonio Spurs vs Portland Trailblazers Betting Lines & Handicapping

It is vital that the Portland SF duo of Gerald Wallace and Nicolas Batum play well and last night in the loss to the Lakers these guys combined to go 9/26 from the floor.

In their 6-game losing streak in Portland the Spurs have only averaged 90.3 ppg so it is vital that Portland plays good defense.

The Blazers’ offense has not scored over 100 points in their last 4 games.
