San Antonio Spurs vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

The San Antonio Spurs just aren't a team I'm eager to back most nights, as they don't play defense and they're 11-18 ATS on the season despite being big underdogs every night. The Portland Trail Blazers have been a different team since Anfernee Simons returned, and they found wins against the Kings and Suns. The Trail Blazers have covered 3 of their last 5 games, showing flashes here and there. The line is reasonable. Give me the Trail Blazers and the chalk.
