Portland Trail Blazers v San Antonio SpursThe most intriguing matchup of the second round of the playoffs features the Portland Trail Blazers and the San Antonio Spurs, and game one is this Wednesday at 9:30 PM ET at the AT&T Center.

The Blazers beat the Houston Rockets in six games as underdogs, and they will try to use LaMarcus Aldridge as the main point on offense.

“Guys are going to be confident, but still have to think about the way that we got here, working hard and grinding it out,” Aldridge said. “I think guys are definitely going to be more confident but this is new territory for most of us.”

“I think LaMarcus is a younger Dirk who can shoot and drive, play in the post (and do) a lot of things, so it’s not going to be easy,” Spurs Thiago Splitter said Monday. “We know that. I think all the team is aware of that; everybody is going to help a little bit.”

The Spurs won the last two games in the season series, despite overall it ended with two wins each.

San Antonio is a 7 points favorite in the NBA Playoffs Betting Odds, and the game total at 206.5 points. Portland is 5-15 SU in its last 20 games when playing on the road against San Antonio.

The Spurs are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games when playing against the Blazers. The total has gone OVER in 6 of San Antonio’s last 9 games in the series.
