The San Antonio Spurs are undefeated at home this season. Tonight, they put that streak on the line against a feisty Portland Trail Blazers troupe that has enough offensive firepower to stay in just about any game.
That said, there’s almost no chance Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum can lead their team to an upset. Why? Because San Antonio’s St. Patrick’s Day-themed gymnasium is way too jarring an environment for any outsider to find success:
The Spurs also have the best defense in the league, and one of the five best all-around players in the world. So, even if Portland isn’t fazed by all those green t-shirts in an arena that’s usually color-free, they still have an unthinkably tall mountain to climb.
