Spurs-Trailblazers pregame tweets

With injured guard Tony Parker sidelined for an expected four weeks, the San Antonio Spurs (48-14) haven't missed a beat in terms of winning as the Spurs have defeated their last two opponents by an average of 28.5 points per game.

The Spurs will host the visiting Portland Trailblazers (28-32) who have been inconsistent on both sides of the ball this season, but did defeat the Spurs once already in Portland.

Here are a few pregame tweets live from the AT&T Center of Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and Blazers Coach Terry Stott's media sessions. First, Coach Stotts spoke on Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard's progression and how the Spurs are still so effective without Parker. 

Coach Popovich talked about Blazers rookie Damian Lillard, Tony Parker's current health status, Danny Green, and I even asked coach Pop about what Tiago Splitter is doing defensively that statistics may not show.
