With only three games remaining on the schedule for the Blazers, Portland is looking to snap its two game losing streak on Saturday when the Blazers visit the San Antonio Spurs.
Since winning a season-best 13 straight games, Portland has gone 4-5.
In the Blazers most recent game on Thursday, the Houston Rockets beat the Blazers 96-64 as Portland’s 4th quarter comeback fell just short after the Blazers ended the game on a 17-2 run. Damian Lillard (left ankle) did not play on Thursday, but Portland’s second unit recorded 42 points on the night.
San Antonio is riding a two game losing streak, as well, after losing their last two in a row and four of its last six games and now there is no way that the Spurs can finish the season with 50 wins.
This season, LaMarcus Aldridge leads the Spurs in scoring with 23.3 points per game.
This will be the third and final meeting of the season between the Blazers and Spurs.
The season series is tied at 1-1. Both games between these two have been decided by two points or less.
In the most recent matchup, the Blazers took the 111-110 win back on January 7th after CJ McCollum hit the go-ahead bucket with 5.9 to go in the game. McCollum finished with 25 points, while Maurice Harkless added 19. Damian Lillard did not play due to a right calf strain.
The Trail Blazers have listed Moe Harkless (left knee) and Ed Davis (right ankle) as out vs. the Spurs, while Damian Lillard (left ankle) has been upgraded to probable.
For the Spurs, Kawhi Leonard (quad rehab) is out for Saturday’s contest.
