Who the Public Likes: As of Sunday afternoon, 55 percent of public bets have come in on the Spurs.

Injury Report: Danny Green has sat out the last two games for the Spurs with tightness in his groin and is questionable for tonight's game. Leonard injured his shoulder last game and is doubtful tonight. Rudy Gay remains out with a heel injury. For the Trail Blazers, CJ Wilcox is out after undgoing knee surgery but might return in mid-January.

Who the Trends Like: San Antonio is 4-1 ATS in its last five games following a win of more than 10 points. Portland is 5-0 ATS in its last five Sunday games. The over is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.

Who We Like: The last meeting in Portland earlier this season, San Antonio squeaked out a 93-91 win. I think the Blazers get their revenge here, taking advantage of Leonard being out of the Spurs lineup. The LaMarcus Aldridge revenge factor is in play, but he hasn't always played well in previous meetings against Portland.
