LaMarcus Aldridge cleared to play as Spurs host Portland

The Spurs have won nine of its past 10 games overall and nine in a row at home.

"That had to be probably our best win of the year", Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. He's available to suit up as early as tonight against his former team, the Portland Trail Blazers.

Carter, who started in place of injured forward Chandler Parsons, made each of his eight shots, including six three-pointers, to help the Grizzlies snap a season-long five-game losing streak.

Now in the midst of his second season as a member of the Spurs, Aldridge previously spent his first nine National Basketball Association campaigns as a member of the aforementioned Trail Blazers.

Will Barton and Jamal Murray scored 22 points each, and Nikola Jokic had 18 points and nine rebounds as the Nuggets won their third straight game.

But while the Trail Blazers have been almost impossible to figure out this season, there are a few traits which qualify as standard at this point, one of which being their inability to pull away from teams in the fourth quarter.

Multiple tests, exams and consultations with experts led the Spurs medical staff to clear the Spurs forward to resume playing, beginning Wednesday against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Trailing 108-105 late in the game, guard Manu Ginobili stepped to the free-throw line with 2.5 seconds left and promptly missed the first shot.

"We would have liked to win the game last night, too, but we did a better job of executing offensively, moving with the ball defensively, getting stops, and trying to prevent second-chance points", said CJ McCollum. He is averaging 17.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game this season.

Leonard finished 12 for 21 from the field, including consecutive dunks, in scoring 30-plus points for the 25th time this season. "He's shown a lot of class and a lot of fortitude in the way he's done it all". "Y'all helped me through a hard time and for that I'm very grateful".

The San Antonio Spurs faced a tough scenario in Wednesday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Patty Mills added 13 while both Pau Gasol and David Lee scored 12 off the bench.
