Game rewind: Trail #Blazers get decisive 111-95 win over San Antonio Spurs s.oregonlive.com/AyjsnPB

Mike Tokito

Barton will get a chance to play for Nuggets in Moda Center when they come to town March 28. Surely he'll get a warm ovation.

Mike Tokito

Barton to Denver Post: "I cheered for my teammates & was a good guy in the locker room. Things are going to pay off." oregonlive.com/nba/index.ssf/…

Ben Golliver

"It starts with me. I'm not making shots. ... It's just struggle time right now. ... You just have to hope it will turn." Tony Parker

Mike Tokito

New post: Ex-#Blazers guard Will Barton scores 22 points for Nuggets; Thomas Robinson debuts with 76ers oregonlive.com/nba/index.ssf/…

Mike Tokito

Also on ex-#Blazers front, Thomas Robinson had 7 points and 6 rebounds in 13 minutes in 76ers' loss to Milwaukee.

Mike Tokito

Barton came off bench, but started third quarter and played the entire second half.

Joe Freeman

It's a wrap: #Blazers beat Spurs 111-95. Matthews had 31 pts, 5 rbs, Batum had 15 pts, 9 asts, Dame had 18 pts, 7 rbs, 5 asts.

Sean Meagher

111-95 Blazers. Wesley Matthews with 31. Portland snaps 2-game skid. Spurs have now lost 4 in a row.

Mike Tokito

Will Barton scores 22 points for Denver tonight, one short of his career high.

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.

Joe Freeman

Wesley Matthews: 31 pts, 5 rbs, 3 asts, 11-18 from field, 4-10 from deep. He scored 21 points in the second half.

Mike Tokito

You get honored pregame for getting career double-double record, you have to get one, and Aldridge has, 11 pts, 13 reb, for 28th of season.

Erik Gundersen

Alonzo Gee first Blazers minutes

Kerry Eggers

That ties a season high of 28 points for Wesley Matthews

Joe Freeman

A brief "Wes-ley Mat-thews" chant breaks out at the Moda Center.

Ben Golliver

Tony Parker: 2 points (1-for-8), 4 assists, 4 TOs, 4 fouls, -7 in 27 mins. He was 1 leaner away from 1st scoreless game since April 13, 2007

Erik Gundersen

"WES-LEY MATTHEWS" chant in the Moda

John Canzano

Nic Batum — nine assists and 15 points in 36 minutes — will take that right now.

Erik Gundersen

12 in the fourth for Matthews.

Mike Tokito

Big bounce-back game for Wesley Matthews, who was 0 for 7 vs. Griz. He's 9 for 16, 24 points tonight.

Sean Meagher

102-88 Blazers. 3:17 left. Double figures for everrrryone.

Mike Richman

Wesley Matthews might have double-dribbled? And then barely grazed the rim on a layup. Count it. Blazers up 102-88 with 3:17 left.

Erik Gundersen

Lillard 3/4 from 3 tonight.

Erik Gundersen

Stotts experimenting a little bit more. Aldridge at the 5 with Afflalo, Batum, Matthews and Lillard.

Mike Tokito

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

Mike Tokito

Granted, there was the All-Star break, but it's been 14 days since poor, deprived #Blazers fans got themselves some free fries.

Joe Freeman

13-point #Blazers lead. 5:17 left. Where have I seen this before?

Joe Freeman

#Blazers bench: 28 pts, 11-18 from field.

Joe Freeman

Nice game from Kaman, who has 11 pts, 6 rbs in 17 mins.

Mike Richman

Chris Kaman (11pts) now the 6th Blazer in double figures.

Erik Gundersen

Good ol' 4th chance points

Joe Freeman

Now Stotts goes ... smaller: Blake, Dame, Matthews, Batum, Kaman.

Joe Freeman

Stotts going with crazy small lineup: Blake, Matthews, Afflalo, Batum, Kaman.

Mike Richman

This is kind of terrifying RT @Portland Trail Blazers: The #Bow3Arrow has emerged! http://t.co/ObhmFrxyWZ

Erik Gundersen

Afflalo and Batum started to flash some good rhythm. Now he and Matthews working really well. Blazers up 12 w/ 9:39 left.

Joe Freeman

Matthews' last 3 ended an 0-6 (this game) and 0-13 (last two games) drought from three-point range.

Erik Gundersen

That looked like Afflalo playing in flow...

John Canzano

Patty Mills… why can’t the Blazers find a guy like that?

Mike Tokito

Here's that 4th quarter test for #Blazers. The last 9 times they've led after 3 quarters, they lost 5 times.

Sean Meagher

Batum, Matthews and Lillard all with 15 points through three quarters. Aldridge has 11&9.

Joe Freeman

End of 3rd Q: #Blazers lead Spurs 81-71. Batum has 15 pts, 8 asts, Dame has 15 pts, 6 rbs, Matthews has 15 pts. Duncan has 18 pts for SA.

Mike Richman

Blazers 81, Spurs 71 End 3rd: Matthews and Batum each with 15pts; Aldridge 11 and 9. Duncan leads SAS with 18pts.

Sean Meagher

Blazers won the third, 30-21.

Erik Gundersen

End of 3: 81-71 Blazers. Batum, Lillard and Matthews all have 15. Duncan with 18 to lead San Antonio.

John Canzano

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

Sean Meagher

81-71 Blazers after Q3. Nicolas Batum with 15 points, 8 assists, 3 rebounds.

Joe Freeman

Batum up to 8 assists ... His line: 15 pts, 8 asts, 3 rbs, 2 stls 6-7 from field, 3-4 from deep. One negative: 5 TOs.

Sean Meagher

Big offensive rebound and kick out from Nicolas Batum to Arron Afflalo for 3. Blazers up 10, 72-62 with 3:40 Q3.

Mike Richman

Arron Afflalo pounds his chest after that 3.

Mike Tokito

Tony Parker 1 of 8 in this game, has missed 17 of his last 20 attempts.

Mike Richman

Middle Earth? RT @TheTower51: @Mike Richman what world are we in

Mike Richman

Wesley Matthews is 0-5 from 3 and 6-6 from 2.

Kerry Eggers

Sure. Some rotten green peppers RT @miller_pdx: @Kerry Eggers I saw him at a bad food cart this aft. Maybe that has something to do with it

Mike Tokito

Duncan missed a shot after 8 makes to start game. NBA record of 18 makes w/o miss by Wilt Chamberlain is safe.

Kerry Eggers

That's 12 turnovers for #Blazers, who still lead 67-58

Erik Gundersen

First field goal of the game for Tony Parker comes with 7:18 in the 3rd quarter.

Mike Richman

The Blazers can bungle a 2-on-1 or 3-on-1 break with the best of them.

Kerry Eggers

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

Erik Gundersen

Great sign: Lillard raps better than Parker.

Joe Freeman

Matthews has been pretty solid defensively, especially challenging Leonard's assortment of shots. Leonard is 2-8 from field, with 5 pts.

Sean Meagher

10 points now. RT @Mike Richman: LaMarcus Aldridge was 3-for-11 in the first half, but he's 2-for-2 to open the third.

Mike Richman

LaMarcus Aldridge was 3-for-11 in the first half, but he's 2-for-2 to open the third.

Kerry Eggers

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

Kerry Eggers

I'm not sure if Tony Parker is hurt, but he's really reluctant to shoot, and he looks like he's a step slow #notthesameplayer

Kerry Eggers

#Blazers couldn't have started the second half any better: @LaMarcus Aldridge with a jumper, @Wesley Matthews with a 3-point play. Portland leads 56-50

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

Mike Richman

Blazers up 51-50 at the half. Batum 12pts, 2rebs, 4ast, 2stls. Matthews 10pts; Duncan 14pts (6-6).

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.

Sean Meagher

Portland up 51-50 at the half. Spurs outscored the Blazers 34-19 in Q2.

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.

Mike Tokito

Gregg Popovich wearing a JK25 patch.

Joe Freeman

Off night for LA, who is 3-11 from the field after that last brick. He has 6 pts, 3 rbs.

John Canzano

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

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.

Erik Gundersen

OOOOO RT @SBNationNBA: Will Barton told the (much bigger) Alex Len to GET OUT: sbnation.com/nba/2015/2/25/… vine.co/v/O2qFQ6Tu6Hd

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.

Kerry Eggers

That's a 23-9 run by Spurs, who close to within 46-41. Suddenly, #Blazers look disoriented at both ends

Mike Richman

Robin Lopez disagrees with the foul call now he and Tim Duncan, one of the great all-time complainers, are chatting.

Joe Freeman

Nicolas Batum's line last 6 quarters: 29 pts, 12 rbs, 8 asts, 2 blks, 12-18 from field, 5-9 from deep.

Mike Richman

Kawhi Leonard three cuts the Blazers lead to 11 and Terry Stotts immediately takes a timeout. Blazers up 46-35 with 5:28 to go in the half.

Kerry Eggers

That was a heat check for @Nicolas Batum, who is now 5 of 5 from the field

Mike Richman

Tim Duncan 6-for-6. No such thing as "vintage" Duncan. Just 18 years of production.

Mike Richman

Wes Matthews is 0-3 from deep but 2-2 on ridiculously difficult layups.

Kerry Eggers

Sure looks like Pop should have started his scrubs, doesn't it?

Erik Gundersen

Splitter read his scouting report. Closed out hard on Meyers there.

Mike Richman

Arron Afflalo hits his first 3. Then he posts up Corey Joseph. Showing the arsenal.

Erik Gundersen

It's LIVE in the Blazer Banter kave on @FanKave. Come hang out with us! http://t.co/cYnS77rYJ0

Mike Tokito

Nicolas Batum is shooting 60.9% from the field since the All-Star break.
