Mike Richman

Late-game Ginobili hasn't been great the last couple games.

Joe Freeman

Dorell Wright has 3 second-half 3s and 9 points for #Blazers. He hadn't scored more than 3 pts in a game this season before tonight.

Mike Richman

Dorrel Wright playing like a guy who wants to get his minutes back.

Erik Gundersen

Dorell Wright looked a step slow to start the season. He's looked much better and hitting shots. 9 points, 6 rebounds off the bench.

Joe Freeman

Have to hand it to the #Blazers. They've had plenty of chances to wilt, but continue to fight. 3:22 left, 89-89. Anybody's game.

Joe Freeman

5:52 left: Spurs lead #Blazers 85-84.

Mike Richman

And fashion forward RT @KrisKoivisto: Not mad at seeing Dorell and T-Rob play together. Long, scrappy, athletic.

Erik Gundersen

Dorell Wright hitting like Lil' Robert Horry tonight.

Mike Richman

X2 RT @Mike Richman: Dorell Wright meaningful three pointer alert.

Joe Freeman

Dorell Wright, ladies and gentleman.

Mike Richman

Dorell Wright meaningful three pointer alert.

Joe Freeman

LA reenters game with 8:49 left and #Blazers trailing 80-74.

Mike Richman

ESPN broadcast quoting an @Joe Freeman article on-air. No accreditation however.

Joe Freeman

Spurs will roll with another shift change at next dead ball.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers have played hard and well in what an entertaining game. But Spurs are one run away from seizing control, up 78-72, w/ 9:40 left.

Joe Freeman

CJ can't buy a hoop ... 0-4 from field, 0-2 from deep.

Joe Freeman

After review, officials determine that Green's 3 came before buzzer. Ruling on floors stands. Spurs lead #Blazers 74-69 heading into 4th.

Erik Gundersen

End of 3: Spurs 74, Blazers 69. Aldridge has a big quarter, 24 points and 8 rebounds for the game. Great full court play by SA as qtr ended.

Joe Freeman

Green's 3 at the 3rd-Q buzzer gives Spurs a 74-69 lead over #Blazers. LA has 24 pts, 8 rbs, Dame has 17 pts. Green has 20 pts for SA.

Ben Golliver

James Johnson... http://t.co/SKvtD6OtFm

Joe Freeman

Stotts was going to play Kaman out of this timeout, but when he saw the Spurs' lineup, he put T. Rob in instead.

Mike Richman

Great game in San Antonio. Blazers and Spurs tied at 61 with 5:24 left in the third.

Erik Gundersen

Very competitive game with the Blazers and Spurs right now. 61-61 with 5:24 in the 3rd.

Mike Richman

Aldridge showing every part of his offensive arsenal. Next up: post fade.

Erik Gundersen

Half: Spurs 46, Blazers 44. Lillard scores 8 of his 13 in the 2nd quarter. Aldridge with 10 points, 7 rebs. Freeland 6 points, 3 rebs.

Sean Meagher

Trail Blazers down just 2, 46-44 at the half.

Joe Freeman

Halftime: Spurs lead #Blazers 46-44. Dame has 13pts, LA has 10pts, 7rbs, Port shooting 44%. Duncan has 12pts, 5rbs, Green has 12pts, 4rbs.

Erik Gundersen

Getting to his spots, shots off. RT @CHold: CJ having a rough go of it out there so far tonight

Joe Freeman

It gave the #Blazers a 39-38 lead. 2:11 left in the 1st half.

Joe Freeman

Incredible series by Matthews, who grabs steal, weaves through traffic up court all the way to hoop, then kicks ball out to Dame for a 3.

Erik Gundersen

Seems like Aldridge has a much tighter handle on the ball this year.

Mike Richman

(yes, Freeland started, but come on)

Mike Richman

9-0 Blazers run sparked by Joel Freeland and Steve Blake. Who needs starters?

Joe Freeman

Wow. A 9-0 #Blazers run cuts Spurs lead to 32-30 with 6:16 left in the 1st half. Freeland has 6 pts during the surge.

Erik Gundersen

Steve Blake helping the Blazers right the ship on both ends. 5 points, dope crossovers, etc.

Joe Freeman

The ol' Steve Blake alley-oop lob to Joel Freeland ... er .. huh?

Erik Gundersen

Joel "get off me" Freeland.

Erik Gundersen

Spurs were dissecting the Blazers but now they're hitting. 4/5 to start the quarter. Blazers down 11 early 2nd quarter.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers open 2nd Q with Blake, CJ, Wright, T. Rob, Kaman.

Joe Freeman

Spurs did not score in final 4:46 of 1st Q.

Joe Freeman

After allowing Spurs to score at will early, #Blazers regrouped and played excellent defense late. SA made 1 of last 12 shots.

Erik Gundersen

End of 1: Spurs 20, Blazers 17. Blazers had 6 turnovers. Spurs shot 38 percent.

Joe Freeman

End of 1st: Spurs lead #Blazers 20-17. Aldridge has 6 pts, 4 rbs, Dame has 5 pts. Duncan has 6 pts, 2 rbs for SA.

Mike Richman

Spurs missed 10 straight shots to close the first quarter but steal lead the #Blazers 20-17.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers have forced SA misses on 4 of last 5 plays, creep back to within three, 20-17, with 2:49 left in the 1st Q.

Joe Freeman

Popovich just screamed to Austin Daye: "Pull your head out of your *%&.!"

Erik Gundersen

Dorell Wright sighting.

Erik Gundersen

Kaman's had a rough Dec. so far after great start. 8 points and 4 rebs on 44% shooting. Nov.: 11 points, 7.3 rebs, 49%.

Joe Freeman

Stotts was going to insert T. Rob during that timeout. But at last second, after seeing the Spurs' lineup, he went with D. Wright.

Joe Freeman

First full timeout, Spurs lead #Blazers 18-11. SA is 8-12 from field, 6 different players have scored. Portland's D is no match so far.

Erik Gundersen

Pop gonna start playing Grinnell style before you know it.

Joe Freeman

Wait ... make that five players. Spurs will send in a whole new team.

Joe Freeman

Spurs about to send in darn near a whole new team. Four players at table ready to check in.

Mike Richman

Butt rebound from Wes Matthews.

Joe Freeman

Not sure why, but Duncan slapped five with Freeland during that Spurs free throw attempt and the two briefly talked.

Joe Freeman

Freeland beats Duncan for opening tip. Crabbe forces airball from Green on #Blazers first defensive series. Solid start for new starters.

Erik Gundersen

Kyle Anderson! Allen Crabbe! It's Pac-12 basketball!

Joe Freeman

It will be Joel Freeland's second career start for the #Blazers. He started once as a rookie in 2012-13.

Ben Golliver

Toronto Raptors officially unveil new primary and Drake-inspired alternate logos bit.ly/1JwtqfK http://t.co/pwEtWfzkYU

Joe Freeman

Joel Freeland and Allen Crabbe will start for #Blazers vs. Spurs.

Erik Gundersen

My *guess* is Crabbe starts and Stotts goes with T-Rob and Aldridge vs. Boris and Duncan. But like always, we'll see.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers forward Nicolas Batum OUT vs. San Antonio Spurs wp.me/p3CpBY-1j5

Mike Richman

Blazers make it official Nic Batum (right wrist and left knee contusion) is Out for tonight's game at San Antonio.

Joe Freeman

Coach Terry Stotts would not reveal starting lineup vs. Spurs. Again, I expect Allen Crabbe to start at SF, but center remains a mystery.

Joe Freeman

Nicolas Batum will not play tonight when the #Blazers visit the Spurs. I expect Allen Crabbe to start in his place.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers Robin Lopez, cast and all, can't help but spend some time on the court and get up a couple left-hand hooks. http://t.co/fZ7qPjZMSZ
