San Antonio got quite the scare when LaMarcus Aldridge was ruled out of the lineup due to a heart scare. But he made it back into the lineup on Wednesday and managed to put up 19 points on 9-24 shooting and 32 minutes of game time.

It still wasn’t enough as the Spurs dropped a tight one, 110-106 to a Portland team playing much better since the acquisition of Jusuf Nurkic.

Still the home loss was surprising against a team that was 12-23 on the road coming in.

Kawhi Leonard led the way in the loss with 34 points. It was San Antonio’s second loss in their last four games. Previously it took them 13 games to have two losses. But one of those was an 89-74 defeat at the hands of the Grizzlies.

Memphis has also been rolling of late with three straight wins coming after five straight losses.

They just swept a two-game road trip with victories in Chicago and Atlanta.

They also kept each of the three opponents to 93 points or less.

But their defensive inconsistency makes them hard to predict. Prior to this recent run, they allowed an average of 113.6 PPG in their previous six. And prior to that they had a run of six games out of eight holding teams under 100 points.

On Saturday night, I expect a strong game from the Spurs now that they are close to full health and their best is better than Memphis.

Bovada has the Spurs listed as 3½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 198 according to MyBookie.ag
