Portland Trail Blazers vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

Backing the San Antonio Spurs in the favorite role doesn't feel right, but it is fair to say they've been more competitive than the Trail Blazers lately. The Portland Trail Blazers have lost 10 of their last 15 games, and they get their boots smoked more times than not in losses. The San Antonio Spurs have had some close games recently, and they'll have the best player on the court for this one. If the Spurs can't win this game, they probably go a long time before their next victory. I'll lay the bucket if forced to pick, but yuck…
