    'Coach, we've got an issue with Kawhi in the arena. Event management called and the lights are not on, and Kawhi's in the arena for two straight days at 6:30 in the morning. And he brought two lamps from home, and he put them up in the arena and shot.'

    Battle of Position

    Point Guard: Tony Parker vs Damian Lillard

    Lillard may win rookie of the year. Tony, if he plays, is a Finals MVP.

    Advantage: Tony

    Shooting Guard: Gary Neal vs Sasha Pavlovich

    Gary "MF'ing" Neal dropped 27 on the Blazers last game. Pavlovich started his first game of the season at Toronto. In 42 minutes he scored 10 points.

    Advantage:Neal

    Small Forward: Kawhi Leonard Danny Green vs Victor Claver

    Danny Green is tied for 7th in the league for 3's made per game and 3Pt%. So far Victor Claver shoots 3's at 0%.

    Advantage: Green

    Power Forward: Tim vs Aldridge

    Last time in Portland, Tim connected on 7-12 FG, made 8-9 FTs, grabbed 9 boards and had 3 blocks in 32 minutes of play. Aldridge made 12-26 FG, 5-6 FTs, 7 boards, 4 assists and 4 blocks in 41 minutes.

    Advantage: Draw

    Center: DeJuan Blair vs J.J. Hickson

    Blair didn't play against J.J. Hickson this year. Hickson put up 14 rebounds and 13 points on Tiago and Diaw.

    Advantage: Hickson

    Bench Mob: Manu, Tiago, DeColo, Diaw, Mills, Anderson, Bonner, Joseph vs some rookies

    Spurs clearly have the numbers and skills at all positions off the bench.

    Advantage: Manu

    MOJO? YES, MOJO

    This should be a nice PG battle; Lillard and TP going at it.

    I have Lillard as ROY this season. The kid is something special and Blazer fans should be really excited having this guy as their future star.

    Prediction; Spurs win by 8 (98/90)
