SPURS: 8 awesome things about them

BLAZERS: 8 awesome things about them

How the Spurs got here: Beat No. 8 Dallas Mavericks 4-3 in the first round.

How the Blazers got here: Beat No. 4 Houston Rockets 4-2 in the first round.

Points per game (per 100 possessions): Spurs 105.4, Blazers 106.7 (Spurs 110.5, Blazers 111.5).

Points allowed per game (per 100 possessions): Spurs 97.6, Blazers 102.8 (Spurs 102.4, Blazers 107.4).

Matchups worth watching: Spurs PG Tony Parker vs. Blazers PG Damian Lillard, Spurs PF Tim Duncan vs. Blazers PF LaMarcus Aldridge.

Scoring leaders: Parker (16.7 points a game), Aldridge (23.2).

Why San Antonio will win: Experience could be the difference. The Spurs are the defending Western Conference champions and have a roster as playoff-tested as any aside from the Heat and perhaps the Nets. Parker and Duncan know exactly when to step on the gas, whereas Lillard has a penchant for clutch moments but sometimes can shoot his team out of games. The Spurs also play much, much better defense than the Blazers or the Rockets and could clamp down on that end.

Why Portland will win: Does any team have a better pick-and-roll duo than Lillard and Aldridge? Those two were outstanding in the first round and present matchup nightmares for any opponent. The Blazers played as well as any team in the first round other than the Heat, and they appear to have overcome any issues that came from late in the season.

Did you know? Duncan averages fewer points per game (18.4) against the Blazers than any other Western Conference team for his career. Only the Washington Wizards (16.7) and Charlotte Bobcats (16.9) have contained the 17-season veteran better.

Prediction: Spurs in 6.

wow great win.....

now time to adjust and prevent the parker shutdown... xtracted from espn recap notes:

Tony Parker was 6-of-12 for 12 points when
guarded by Damian Lillard, 10 of which came in
the first half. - The Trail Blazers made a halftime
adjustment on Parker, inserting Wesley Matthews
as his primary defender. When guarded by
Matthews, Parker committed three turnovers and
shot 2-of-5. - Using his size advantage,
Matthews was able to limit Parker from getting
into the lane. When guarded by Matthews,
Parker's average shot distance was 17.2 feet,
compared to 9.4 feet when guarded by any other
Blazer.

Maybe it's also interesting to note that Matthews had 1 foul in all of the first half, added 2 fouls in the 3rd quarter and 3 more fouls in the 4th to foul out with 4: 40 left.

If Parker plays like he did last night I think there is not much Portland or any other team in the league can do about it.
And him playing at this level is what we need to have as good a chance as anyone to win it all this year.
