Spurs roll to 2-0 lead over Trail Blazers
Question of the Day
Kawhi Leonard scored 20 points, Tony Parker had 16 points and 10 assists, and San Antonio rolled to a 114-97 victory over the Trail Blazers on Thursday night for a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.
After being struck by a “tidal wave” during the second quarter of the opener, Portland took on even more water in Game 2.
“The onslaught at the beginning of the second quarter was obviously the turning point in the game,” Stotts said.
Aldridge was 6 for 23, missing back-to-back dunks in the second quarter.
“We missed a lot of shots,” Aldridge said. “I definitely wasn’t in a good rhythm tonight. I missed two dunks and four or five layups, so if those shots go in, then the whole game is different.”
The Trail Blazers host Game 3 on Saturday night.
Making matters worse for the Trail Blazers, reserve Mo Williams was limited to 9 minutes due to a groin injury. He finished with four points.
“Our bench is coming alive,” Parker said. “They had a hard first round. They had a hard time against Dallas, but the last two games the bench is playing well.”
The Trail Blazers, who found a snake in their locker room before the game, had a much better start than in Game 1.
