The Portland Trail Blazers (9-4) are tied for the lead in the Western Conference despite a tough loss in their last game. They face a scrappy San Antonio Spurs (6-8) who are also coming off a loss, but have proven early this season that they’re going to be a tough game every time this season. Damian Lillard is playing like an All-NBA First Team guard at the start of this season, amassing 28.6 points and 6.0 assists per game, while giving Jerami Grant and Anfernee Simons the agency on offense to make plays at the end of the shot clock and with play on the line.

So far this season, Portland has played four games that have been decided by possession either at the buzzer or in the dying seconds. Lillard has either played a willful distraction or assisted on three of four buckets in those wins.
Grant, Simons and Josh Hart have rallied together to make winners and all have the confidence to take those shots, even with their MVP contender on the floor with them this season.
On the other side of San Antonio, he saw another massive leap from the wing duo of Keldon Johnson and Devin Vassell.
The duo are averaging 42.4 points, 9.0 rebounds and 7.0 assists. They are slowly becoming one of the best young wing tandems in the Western Conference and the NBA.
