INJURY TO WATCH
Portland point guard Damian Lillard (ankle) is probable to play tonight. Power forward Ed Davis (ankle) is questionable. Small forward Maurice Harkless (knee) is out until mid-April. Shooting guard CJ Wilcox (knee) is out indefinitely. For San Antonio, small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadricep) is out indefinitely.
The Trail Blazers are breathing easy right now with a cushion as they sit in the third spot in the Western Conference, while the Spurs are in the big group of teams vying for the fourth through eighth positions. I'm going to say San Antonio brings its 'A' game tonight as it is 31-8 straight up at home this season and defeated the Rockets 100-83 the last time they played at home before two straight road defeats.
