(Audio) Spurs vs. Portland Pregame Report: Leonard, Parker, Batum, Lopez out

AT&T CENTER – After falling in their last two games, the San Antonio Spurs (17-9) are looking to rebound with a win Friday evening against the visiting Portland Trail Blazers (20-6). Both teams will be without some of their core players, as Tony Parker (left hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (right hand) will be out for San Antonio, while Robin Lopez (right hand fracture) and Nicolas Batum (right wrist/left knee) will be out for Portland.

After Wednesday’s triple-overtime thriller between the Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies, Popovich confirmed that Tim Duncan and the rest of the group is expected to play, despite the increase of minutes most of the core players played on Wednesday.

In the audio pregame report, I spoke about some of the key topics from Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich’s pregame media session, including the latest on Leonard and Parker’s injuries, Popovich’s “no thoughts” comment on the Rajon Rondo trade, and I also spoke with a few players like Kyle Anderson on his post play and Tiago Splitter, on how his calf is feeling thus far.

AT&T CENTER – “I thought the Lakers did a great job. They had an edge, they were aggressive on both ends of the floor, they executed well and they definitely wanted the game more than we did. It seemed to be more important to them than to us. I thought our performance was pitiful.” Those […]

Before Tip-Off: Leonard to miss Spurs vs. Lakers game (Audio)

AT&T CENTER – The San Antonio Spurs (16-6) will host the Los Angeles Lakers (6-16) Friday evening in a game that has a bit more attention than a usual 23rd game of the regular season in mid December, as Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, is 31 points away from passing Michael Jordan to move into third place on the NBA’s All-Time scoring list.

On the Spurs’ end, they’ll be missing their best perimeter defender in Kawhi Leonard (bruised right hand), but they will have Tony Parker return to the lineup, after he missed time with a mild strain, of his left hamstring. Being here at the arena, I previewed the game in the audio clip below and discussed what both coaches had to say in their pregame interview, as well as gave an update on Leonard’s injury status.
