NBA Playoffs 2014, Spurs vs. Trail Blazers final score: San Antonio wins, takes 3-0 series lead


The San Antonio Spurs couldn’t have looked anymore dominant than they were in their Game 3 win over the Portland Trail Blazers and it had less to do with the final margin of victory and more to do with how they crushed the spirits of the spunky Blazers.

After winning their series against the Rockets in thrilling fashion, the Blazers have seemingly hit a brick wall and don’t seem likely to be advancing any further in the postseason. That’s thanks tot the veteran skill of the Spurs who despite their age have been able to look like the most dominant team in the postseason next to the Miami Heat.

San Antonio has work to do, as the offensive powerhouses that the Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers represent seem like they could be a problem. But for the most part this series has been a lot easier for the Spurs than their opening round bout with the Mavericks and f ams 3 was any indication of how things will go, San Antonio might be in for some much needed rest as they await the winner of the Clippers-Thunder series which will likely go a full seven.
