Trail Blazers seek to avoid play-in; Spurs hoping for it

The surging Portland Trail Blazers will look to move closer to a guaranteed spot in the NBA playoffs when they host the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday in a game with huge postseason implications for both teams.

The game will be the second of a back-to-back for both the Trail Blazers and the Spurs, who both won their respective contests on Friday.

The Trail Blazers have a full head of steam after outlasting the shorthanded Los Angeles Lakers 106-101 on Friday to capture their second straight game and record their sixth win in their past seven outings. Damian Lillard paced Portland with 38 points, with CJ McCollum adding 21, Norman Powell scoring 19, and Jusuf Nurkic and Enes Kanter hitting for 10 each for the Trail Blazers.
