On the Daily Dime today, "ESPN Research" writes the following:
The Spurs are 0-1 for the first time since the 1996-97 season and look for their first win of the season when they visit Portland on Friday night. San Antonio has won 12 in a row against the Trail Blazers, the longest active win streak over an opponent in the NBA. Portland last beat San Antonio on Jan. 24, 2005. The only current Blazers on Portland's roster that day were Joel Przybilla and Travis Outlaw.
We need to break this streak tonight!!
We need to smoke these spurs!!
RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!
