Spurs easily beat Blazers in West semifinals Game 1
Tony Parker had 33 points and nine assists and the San Antonio Spurs never trailed in a resounding 116-92 victory over Portland, bullying the younger Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday night.
Kawhi Leonard had 16 points and Tim Duncan added 12 points and 11 rebounds for San Antonio.
More importantly for the Spurs, their bench contributed mightily after being virtually non-existent in the series against Dallas.
Marco Belinelli had 19 points and the Australian connection of Aron Baynes and Patty Mills had 10 points apiece.

"It's just one game," Parker said. "We know Game 2 is going to be hard, we know they're going to come out with a lot of energy and they're going to try to give everything they got. We're going to have to match that."
In the video above, Parker talks about what worked for the Spurs in Game 1 and what to expect Thursday in Game 2.
