Bonner's nose was broken, Pop was ejected, and Manu played one of his greatest five minutes ever to give the Spurs a one-point lead going into the fourth.

In the end the Spurs couldn't get stops and the Blazers hit their jumpers. This was a fun game between two good teams, but it's hard to feel good after that loss.

The Good Guys fought hard after Pop was tossed following his tirade directed at the officials after LaMarcus Aldridge got away with another lowered shoulder or push-off, I forget which, he got away with it all night. Manu exploded for 18 points in the last five and a half minutes of the third and the momentum was in San Antonio's favor.

SA missed jumpers and failed to stop the Portland offense in the fourth as they lost the quarter by 10.

We'll get into the game in the recap.

Your Spurs fall to 31-9, still a half game up on the Blazers.
