Coming off a Thursday loss to the Clippers, the Blazers take on the 5-1 San Antonio Spurs tonight at the Rose Garden. To preview the action, I talked to Jesse Blanchard, a writer and illustrator for the ESPN TrueHoop Spurs blog 48 Minutes of Hell, on the latest episode of the PRS Preview Podcast. We discussed Tim Duncan’s fantastic, age-defying start to the season, the similarities between Nicolas Batum and Kahwi Leonard, how the Lillard-Aldridge pick-and-pop might exploit San Antonio’s defensive weaknesses, and more. Listen below and be sure to follow Jesse on Twitter at @blanchard48moh. Also, prints of his fantastic Spurs artwork are on sale on his society6 store, if you’re into that sort of thing.
