I don't know if there's a team out there that I hate playing more than Portland in terms of how well they play against us. They have played us so well the last few years. Then they add a Spur killer in Mo Williams to their 2nd unit.
I guess we'll see what happens. Aldridge is going to be a handful
West series are so much more entertaining.
Really looking forward to this series, looking at their starting lineups the personnel matches really well. Always been a fan of LMA, hoping he can deliver this series again.
I still cringe when thinking my Raptors chose Bargnani over LMA draft day.
This is the one series where I really don't know who is going to win. I'll say Spurs just because they have home court advantage, but man these teams are evenly matched.
I think the Clips will beat OKC, Wiz will beat Indy (can't pick Indy anymore), and Miami will beat Brooklyn (even though they lost 4 games to them this year).
All 4 series are going to be good IMO, but this one for me at least... is the toughest to predict.
It's a given Lillard and Aldridge will get theirs, because they always seem to kill us. It will be important for the Spurs to keep guys like Matthews/Batum/Lopez from getting them bonus points. I think the games the Spurs won this year, they limited those guys quite a bit.
Belinelli has to play better this series, which I believe he will.
I agree. His #'s vs Portland were better than his against Dallas.
Mo Williams is another one they have to contain off the bench. That guy whatever team he is on, he always seems to play lights out.

If Aldridge has a strong game I could see PDX stealing Game 1 but ultimately I see the Spurs winning in 6.
spurs win by 12
I expect Tony Parker to come out motivated facing Portland and have a big game.
anyone watching this tnt pre-game?
shaq doesn't even say a word even ernie says more and hes just the host lmao
Anybody else agree that the winner of this series will be in the finals? I think that will be the case.
Not capitalizing enough early on
