Trail Blazers, Spurs: Tweets from Game 1

 

Last night the Portland Trail Blazers got blown out by the San Antonio Spurs 116-92 at the AT&T Center. It was painful to watch. Not only did the Spurs play the kind of basketball you would expect from a championship team, the Trail Blazers played the kind of basketball you would expect from a D-League squad. Portland, usually thriving from beyond the arc, shot an uncharacteristic 25.0 percent from deep (4-16); a figure inflated by Will Barton‘s 3-3 in garbage time. On the other end, they struggled to lock down the perimeter, allowing the Spurs to shoot 43.8 percent (7-16) from deep. It was the effortless penetration of Tony Parker (33 points), however, that ultimately undid Portland’s efforts.
