PORTLAND, Oregon -- The San Antonio Spurs have made the NBA playoffs 21 straight years, though there are some who believe that streak will end this season.
Don't count Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard among the skeptics.
"They're tough," Lillard said of the Spurs, who come calling to Moda Center Saturday night to face the Trail Blazers. "They're the Spurs. They're going to always be a tough team to deal with. We have to be ready to be locked in and be sharp and get another 'W.' "
