Bayless' 31 leads Blazers to win over Spurs

SAN ANTONIO (NBA.com exclusive) -- If there was ever a time when it looked like the Spurs would snap out of a recent embarrassing trend and get a victory against a team with a plus.500 record, Wednesday night would be the time.

Portland came in with a winning record, but the Trail Blazers are a team with injuries to seven players. And it got worse as the team pulled in to San Antonio, playing the previous night in Dallas and watching Joel Przybilla incur a possible season-ending knee injury and Brandon Roy come out of the game late with a sprained shoulder.

Przybilla and Roy did not play Wednesday, but the Spurs still couldn't come close to matching the energy of the players Portland did put on the floor. Behind a 31-point, seven-assist night from Jerryd Bayless and a second-straight double-double from Juwan Howard, the Trail Blazers controlled most of the game and defeated the Spurs 98-94 at AT&T Center.

"There's no words," gushed Blazers coach Nate McMillan. "This is the best road trip that I've been on."

McMillan later clarified that he meant the best road trip in his career. They finished it 3-1, with their lonely loss coming in the first game at defending Eastern Conference champ Orlando. The Blazers (19-12) followed by stringing together wins over Miami, then Dallas the night before beating San Antonio -- all teams with winning records.

The Spurs, by comparison, have little to hang their hat on. San Antonio (15-11) came into the game winning six of the last seven, but none against a winning team. The Spurs' last victory against a team with a winning record came Nov. 27 at Houston, but they are 0-5 against plus-.500 teams since.

"I don't pay too much attention to that," said Roger Mason Jr., who was one of four Spurs players in double figures with 16 points. "A lot of times it's not so much who we are playing but how we are handling our assignments and doing the things we're supposed to do.

"The majority of the game we didn't do that, and they outplayed us. Bayless had a heck of a game. It took us until the fourth quarter until we turned it (around), and we unfortunately lost the game."

The Blazers' aggressiveness showed up with 26 trips to the free-throw line (the Spurs had 17), 11 offensive rebounds (six for the Spurs) and 18 points off San Antonio's 14 turnovers.

Howard, who went almost consecutive years without a double-double, picked up a double-double on consecutive nights with 22 points and 12 rebounds starting in place of Przybilla (Howard had 10 and 10 in Dallas). LaMarcus Aldridge added 22 points, eight on 4-for-5 shooting in the final quarter.

Maybe the Spurs did play better in the fourth quarter. They did hit 11 of 20 shots and turned the ball over twice.

But they only outscored Portland 25-23. In other words, the Blazers answered everything the Spurs threw at them.

"We're playing the game the right way," McMillan said. "I firmly believe if you play the game hard, you play this game together, you will give yourself a chance to win in this league.

"You can have all the talent in the world, but if you're not playing the game the right way you won't win games."

Portland led by as many as 12 in the third quarter. The Spurs cut it to a one-point deficit with 9 minutes left in the game on Tim Duncan's follow slam of a George Hill layup that was blocked by Jeff Pendergraph.

Duncan had 24 points and 11 rebounds, and his night included a 10-for-11 performance from the free-throw line. But nine of those free throws came in the second quarter as the Blazers found a way to keep him from getting easy shots most of the rest of the night.

But after his follow slam, Portland went on a 12-2 run. The Spurs had fits with Bayless, who had nine fourth-quarter points and consistently penetrated the lane.

"Coach (McMillan) told me not to try to do anything crazy, but to be aggressive and make plays," said Bayless, who scored 29 six nights ago in a win over Phoenix.

Bayless started the fourth-quarter run, after a Howard offensive rebound, by taking it right down the throat of the Spurs defense and had Tony Parker backpedaling before Parker committed the foul. Bayless went to the line and made both shots (he was 9 for 10 on the night).

He took a charge on an offensive foul, drove the lane again circled through it before dishing to Howard for a basket, and then was confident enough to drive the lane again and try a shot over Duncan, but it missed.

But he hit a three over Parker as the shot-clock buzzer sounded to give the Blazers a 96-87 lead with two minutes to go.

Duncan brought it back to a 96-94 game with 27 seconds to go on a pass inside from Mason.

Bayless pulled up from 20 feet on the next trip down the floor and missed. But the rebound got away from the Spurs and Andre Miller gathered it in near the foul line. He was fouled with .8 seconds to go.
