San Antonio
Portland

[PORTLAND] — The Portland Trail Blazers played host to the San Antonio Spurs last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 99 to 98 Blazers victory. The win bumps Portland's record up to 41-40 on the season, while the loss drags San Antonio's down to 61-20. Though a win's a win and Trail Blazers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Shabazz Napier's 32 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 37 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Napier included - and the most important part is that the Trail Blazers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Napier in the winning effort was Noah Vonleh. Had it not been for Vonleh rounding out the Blazers's attack with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 1 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Portland's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Spurs, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Blazers will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Blazers will be a date with the New Orleans Pelicans while the visiting Spurs will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Utah Jazz.
