Take with grain of salt, but Spurs currently have 1.1 pct chance of winning title by Hollinger model that sims season 5,000 times per night.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs have had a #FullSquad in 8 of their last 9 games. They've gone 4-5 during that stretch. Interesting 25 games left...

Mike Monroe

#Spurs have 2nd 4-game losing streak of season, fall to 34-23 after getting blown out in 2nd half vs. #Blazers; 14-16 on road this season

Roberto Martin

Anthony Slater

Thunder two games back of the Spurs for #7 and have two games left with them.

Erik Gundersen

Obviously the Spurs didn't play very well but this might be Portland's most complete game of the season. At least of 2015.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs have never had losing record on rodeo road trip ... until now; about to got to 2-5 on trip with 2 left (at SAC, PHX)

Dan McCarney

Spurs hadn't lost four straight in RS since spring 2011. About to do it for the second time since December.

Paul Garcia

3:17 left in the 4th and the Spurs have fallen back down 14.

Mike Tokito

Batum is 6 for 7 from field; the Spurs' two French guys, Parker and Diaw, a combined 3 for 19. Oui.

Paul Garcia

5:17 left in the 4th, the Spurs have 13 points in the 4th, Portland 16 points. SA trails by 13 overall.

Dan McCarney

Jeez...the Spurs' night, maybe season, in a nutshell. Blake blocked, Lillard desperation 3, Kaman rebounds, three-point play.

Paul Garcia

Spurs' bench with 25 points, 10 assists so far. Afflalo showing why he was a good acquisition, 10 points off the bench on 4/6 shooting.

Dan McCarney

Spurs battling hard to stay in this but Portland keeps stepping on their face. Blazers are back up 12 with 8-0 run.

Paul Garcia

About the Spurs' third quarters during the Rodeo Road Trip: http://t.co/bEaxVD60vg

Mike Monroe

Another awful 3rd quarter has #Spurs in 10-point hole going to 4th in PDX; Tim Duncan 18 pts. on 9-12 FG but @Tony Parker is 1-8, 2 pts.

Paul Garcia

John Canzano

Blazers up 10 vs. Spurs headed to fourth… do they finish this?

Dan McCarney

All that hard work squandered. Spurs back down 13 midway through the Third Quarter of Doom, brought to you by Big Red.

Kerry Eggers

Spurs in 6th of 9 straight road games. Last home game: Feb. 6. Next home date: March 4

Paul Garcia

As @Mike Monroe mentioned about the Spurs' struggles in the 3Q on the RRT. SA is scoring 95.2 PP/100, giving up 116.2 PP/100 on RRT in 3Qs.

Mike Monroe

Really bad trend on rodeo trip for #Spurs: lackluster 3rd quarters; they've been outscored 10-4 in 1st 2:56 of 3rd at Moda Center

Kerry Eggers

Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker are combined 2 for 13. Spurs can't win when that happens

Kerry Eggers

Tim Duncan 14 points on 7-7 shooting for Spurs at half. @Nicolas Batum has 12 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, also 3 turnovers

Kerry Eggers

Both teams shooting well at the half -- #Blazers .553, Spurs .525. Blazers 5-11 from 3, Spurs 4-8. Blazers hurt by 9 turnovers

Paul Garcia

That 2Q in detail. Shooting: Spurs 65%, Blazers 50% Turnovers: Spurs 1, Blazers 8 (SA scored 11 PTS off them).

Mike Monroe

Trying to figure out how #Spurs are only down 1 to #Blazers at half, especially with @Tony Parker having another awful game, 0-5, 2 turnovers

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 50, Blazers 51. After SA was down 37-18 w/ 10:59 left in 2Q, SA outscored POR 32-14 to end the 2Q. SA takes 2Q 34-19.

Erik Gundersen

Halftime: Blazers 51, Spurs 50. Batum w/ 12 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, a block. Aldridge just 3/11. Duncan 7/7, 14 points.

Joe Freeman

Halftime: #Blazers lead Spurs 51-50. Batum has 12 pts, 4 asts, Matthews has 10 pts, 3 rbs. Duncan has 14 pts for SA.

Jeff McDonald

After trailing by as many as 19 in the first half, Spurs down only 51-50 at half here in Portland.

Paul Garcia

Oh the joys of an NBA regular season. After the Jazz beat the Spurs, they go and lose to the Lakers a few nights later. Haha

Dan McCarney

30-11 run for Spurs over nine-minute span, reduced 37-18 deficit to 48-48 tie.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi drives, feeds the Baynes. Spurs have tied the Blazers at 48. Didn't see that coming.

John Canzano

Trail Blazers have blown a 19-point lead in the first half vs. Spurs. Tied 48-48.

Paul Garcia

After scoring just 16 points in the 1Q, the Spurs have 30 already in the 2Q and they're holding POR to 16 now.

Mike Tokito

Patty Mills, hasn't played a minute, and game notes don't list him as injured, but he's still first guy up to cheer for Spurs.

Joe Freeman

A 19-pt #Blazers lead is down to 2, 48-46, with 2+ left in 2nd Q. Spurs on a 14-2 run.

Jeff McDonald

Holy goodness Tim Duncan is playing his 38-year-old butt off. Spurs within two.

Paul Garcia

Now Green makes the mid-range jumper. The Spurs just cut the Blazers' lead from 19 to 5. SA in control of 2Q 25-14. Defense locking down.

Jeff McDonald

Since falling down by 19 early 2Q, Spurs have outscored Blazers 23-9. Have carved deficit to 46-41.

Mike Richman

Blazers playing a little too fast the last few trips. Spurs have cut the lead to 5 with 3:34 to go in the 1st half.
