KEY GAME INFORMATION
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS:Considering how exhausted he looked by the end of the Finals, don't be surprised if TONY PARKER gets more rest during the regular season . . . DANNY GREEN had a coming-out party this past June. A three-point specialist who can defend, the Spurs will lean on him more heavily during the first 82 . . . MANU GINOBILI looks oh-so-close to being done. His minutes will decline . . . MARCO BELINELLI adds quality depth behind Green. He'll take many of the minutes that used to go to Ginobili and Gary Neal, who left for Milwaukee . . . CORY JOSEPH enters the season as the favorite to back up Parker, but it's a fluid situation . . . NANDO DE COLO fell out of the rotation last season, but has enough talent that he should bounce back . . . PATTY MILLS is more of a cheerleader than a useful bench piece. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN just keeps going. The 2012-13 regular season was his best in years. The Spurs will keep his minutes in check, but he likely has another great season in him . . . KAWHI LEONARD is one of the league's elite role players, and he seems to keep getting better. He can shoot, score off the dribble and defend . . . JEFF AYRES is a skilled big man who will back up Duncan and can play alongside him for stretches. Like all of their frontcourt players besides Duncan, the player formerly known as Jeff Pendergraph, will see his playing time will fluctuate greatly depending on matchups. CENTERS: TIAGO SPLITTER continues to improve rapidly, and he'll now take the bulk of the minutes alongside Duncan. But as we saw in last year's Finals, head coach Gregg Popovich will keep him on the bench if the matchup isn't right . . . BORIS DIAW's versatility gives Pop options off the bench . . . MATT BONNER is pretty much just around to participate in the Three-Point Shootout at this point in his career.
PORTLAND: GUARDS: DAMIAN LILLARD is for real, an elite shooter and a natural running the pick-and-roll. Though we're a little worried about what will happen if pick-and-pop partner LaMarcus Aldridge is dealt sometime this season . . . WESLEY MATTHEWS will be battling for playing time with Portland loading up on wings . . . C.J. MCCOLLUM can play either guard spot, but primarily he's a scorer and a potentially elite shooter. He is, however, out a few months with a foot fracture. . . MO WILLIAMS will provide the Blazers with a veteran guard presence who is more than capable of lighting it up on any given night. He is, however, a major defensive liability'If he straightens out his jumper, WILL BARTON could end up being a solid second-unit player . . . EARL WATSON gives them a much more reliable back-up point guard than Ronnie Price was . . . Sharpshooter ALLEN CRABBE will likely find himself in the D-League early on. FORWARDS: LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE's name will be in trade rumors all season, but it won't affect his role as this team's No. 1 option . . . NICOLAS BATUM will continue to do a little bit of everything, playing point forward to allow Lillard to play off the ball at times, and serving as a dangerous three-point shooter . . . DORELL WRIGHT can lock opponents down when he wants to. He'll push Wesley Matthews for minutes . . . Portland will be the next team to try to squeeze production out of 2012 No. 5 pick THOMAS ROBINSON. After Sacramento and Houston both gave up on him almost immediately, Robinson in danger of falling off the NBA map . . . VICTOR CLAVER provides some energy as a second-unit bit player . . . JOEL FREELAND has six fouls to give. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ will be a better fit alongside Aldridge than J.J. Hickson was. Lopez isn't skilled, but he can take some defensive responsibilities away from Aldridge . . . MEYERS LEONARD is, as expected, still a work in progress. He's enormous and there's some raw talent, but he too often looks lost.

*Spurs-Trail Blazers Preview* =============================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

San Antonio (2-0) at Portland (1-1), 10:00 p.m. EDT

No one has fared better against the San Antonio Spurs over the past five years than the Portland Trail Blazers.

LaMarcus Aldridge helped make certain that trend continued last season.

With Tim Duncan's status unclear, Aldridge might be able to feast on a short-handed frontcourt Saturday night when the Blazers try to continue their success against the unbeaten Spurs in their home opener.

Portland (1-1) split its first two games on the road, losing 104-91 at Phoenix in Wednesday's opener before regrouping to roll past Denver 113-98 on Friday.

Aldridge poured in nine of his game-high 25 points in the fourth quarter as the Blazers snapped the Nuggets' 23-game regular-season home win streak.

"It's good to have a guy like that who can make those plays and guys can play off of him," said coach Terry Stotts, whose club also snapped a nine-game slide at Pepsi Center.

After totaling 53 points on 24-of-48 shooting in his first two games, Aldridge will try to help Portland win its fifth straight home opener. The two-time All-Star has been difficult to stop in this matchup, averaging 25.7 points on 56.7 percent shooting to help the Blazers take two of three from the Spurs (2-0) last season.

This time, he could be facing a San Antonio team without Duncan. The 14-time All-Star left Wednesday's 101-94 win over Memphis in the third quarter after receiving an inadvertent elbow to the chest from Tony Allen.

If he can't go, Boris Diaw is expected to get another start after finishing with 14 points and hitting a big 3-pointer with 1:50 remaining in Friday's 91-85 win at the Los Angeles Lakers. Diaw also had 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting after Duncan went down in the opener.

On Friday, Tony Parker led the way with 24 points on 12-of-18 shooting and Manu Ginobili added 20. Kawhi Leonard had 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs, who clawed back from an early 15-point deficit.

"We only know how to e way, and that's what we do," coach Gregg Popovich said. "We didn't do anything different. We just ran what we always run, whether (Duncan) is there or not. If Tony was out or Manu was out, we run our same stuff."

Parker has played in only three of the past seven meetings with the Blazers, averaging 18.0 points while helping the Spurs win two of those three contests.

Now he'll try to help San Antonio end its slump against Portland and start 3-0 for the second straight season.

The Blazers, however, are one of two teams with a winning record against the Spurs during the regular season since 2008-09. They've won 12 of 17 meetings over that span, while Miami owns a less-impressive 5-4 record.

Portland has been particularly dominant at home in this series, winning eight of nine by an average of 10.5 points.

Parker could have his hands full with reigning Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard, who has 50 points and made 9-of-16 from 3-point range in the first two games.

Lillard averaged 28.0 points on 53.4 percent shooting and 7.0 assists in last year's season series with San Antonio.

The Spurs have limited opponents to 89.5 points per game on 39.4 percent shooting in their two wins.
