Portland Trail Blazers vs. San Antonio Spurs: Stars and X-Factors

Whose stars shiny most brightly, whose defense defends most securely and whose X-factors factor in most as the Portland Trail Blazers face the San Antonio Spurs in the second round of the playoffs?

For the first time in 14 years, the Portland Trail Blazers will be playing in the second round of the NBA playoffs this week.

In this edition of the Blazer's Edge Videocast, Dave and Sam give their take on Damian Lillard's heroic three-pointer against Houston, talk about the importance of front court defense, and look at the X Factors for Portland and San Antonio.

If you haven't already, read Dave's full preview of the upcoming series here.

Also, the always terrific J.R. Wilco from Pounding the Rock joined us Monday to talk about the Spurs here. If you want the San Antonio side of the story, this is your spot.

Enjoy, and we'll see you again after Game One!
