With Jakob Poeltl still out and Zach Collins joining him on the Spurs’ injured list, (sort of) local guy Charles Bassey will draw his first career start tonight. – 7:59 PM
Came up with a #SameGameParlay to ride the possibly-about-to-get-hot Blazers tonight. Just need 3 threes from Dame, 6+ rebs from Hart and a Portland win in SA… +106 right now on @FDSportsbook. pic.twitter.com/pBgWrXczDq – 7:59 PM
The last time an @NBA team scored 50+ points during the 1st quarter was Portland (50) on May 10, 2021 vs. Houston.

Highly recommend checking out what my buddy @Matthew Tynan is doing with his Corporate Knowledge newsletter covering the Spurs in a similar way to how I cover the Blazers matthewtynan.substack.com – 7:34 PM
Asked about his memories of the AT&T Center during the ’05 Finals, which the Spurs won in 7 over Chauncey Billups’ Pistons, Billups said:
“I hate this place. I have a respectful hate for this place.”
Billups averaged 20.4 PPG, 6.3 APG – both team highs – and 5.0 RPG. – 7:33 PM
Billups said Eubanks (right hip, contusion) is available.
“Drew’s been awesome,” Billups said. “He’s provided an awesome spark for us.”
That includes scoring 5 of his 9 points in the 4Q to help the Blazers beat the Spurs by 7 on Nov. 15 in Portland. – 7:14 PM
Mid-week hoops comin’ up 😎

Pop also said the plan is for Blake Wesley to return to the court for the Austin Spurs against the Capitanes in Mexico City on Friday. – 7:04 PM
Pop on what Spurs like about Stanley Johnson:
“He’s a tough competitor. He’s defensive-minded. He’s strong. He’s a big wing. And he plays hard.” – 7:01 PM

Pop said the plan is for Blake Wesley to return to the court in Mexico City, where the Austin Spurs will play the Capitanes at 7 p.m. Friday.

The San Antonio Spurs will try to win their fourth straight game tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers. Here’s a preview: spurstalk.com/spurs-blazers-… – 6:31 PM
Pop says Charles Bassey is going to get the start in place of Zach Collins. Not sure yet on Sochan and Vassell. Sounds like he’s still awaiting word from the medical staff on the status of their minute restrictions. – 6:31 PM

Will Barton’s favorite memory from his 8 seasons in Denver? Winning that first first-round series vs. San Antonio.
“Just to be a part of that whole foundation …,” Barton said. “Knowing that I was a part of that is gratifying enough for me.”
