Best Storylines to Follow in the NBA Conference Semifinals
Aldridge vs. Duncan, Lillard vs. Parker
Sometimes, playoff series feature stars that play different positions. Not this San Antonio Spurs-PortlandTrailBlazers Western Conference semifinal. Nope. This series is set to feature Spurs’ point guard TonyParker and power forward TimDuncan against Blazers’ point guard DamianLillard and power forward LaMarcusAldridge, truly pitting the four best players in the series head-to-head at each of their positions. Should be wildly entertaining, especially considering how Lillard’s star was born with a huge game winner against Houston in that first round.
