The matchup of Greg Oden and Tim Duncan will have to wait, but the Blazers will be ready to play their home opener at 7:30 p.m. tonight against San Antonio without their top pick from the 2007 draft. Oden will miss two to three weeks with a right foot sprain.

Rudy Fernandez, who scored 16 points in Tuesday's 96-76 loss at the L.A. Lakers, Jerryd Bayless (three points) and Nicolas Batum (two points) are expected to play.

Tonight's game is sold out.

PORTLAND, Ore. - Michael Finley's shot at the buzzer for San Antonio rimmed out and the Portland Trail Blazers edged the Spurs 100-99 Friday night.

With the score tied at 93, Brandon Roy hit a pull-up jumper for the Blazers, but San Antonio's Roger Mason answered with a 22-footer to tie it again.

After Rudy Fernandez missed one of two free throws, Tony Parker's reverse layup with 1:29 left gave the Spurs their first lead of the second half at 97-96.

Roy made a pair of foul shots to put the Blazers in front before LaMarcus Aldridge hit a shot from the top of the key to make it 100-97 with 35 seconds left.

After Parker hit a pair of free throws, Travis Outlaw's bank shot for the Blazers missed. Mason took the ball to the other end and appeared to have a clear path to the basket but he passed off to Finley, who missed at the buzzer sounded.

Such a perfect setup by Roger Mason (who is quickly becoming a favorite of mine) who made a beautiful penetration and kicked it out to Michael Finley who missed the game winner. Me and my dad both screamed when he missed that shot, it was well isolated but he just missed it. We've lost both our first games by an average of 3 points. I hope we can make some necessary changes in our next game against Dallas.
