(SportsNetwork.com) - Two of the NBAs very best take center stage Monday night when the defending champion San Antonio Spurs head to the Moda Center to take on the Portland Trail Blazers. The Spurs dispatched the Blazers in five games during last seasons Western Conference semifinals en route to a fifth NBA championship. The two are separated by a game in the standings. San Antonio started its quick road trip with a 99-91 victory over the Denver Nuggets Sunday night at the Pepsi Center. Kawhi Leonard returned to lead a balanced San Antonio offense with 18 points. Leonard was back after missing two games with a bruised right hand and set career highs with six blocks and five steals to go along with four assists in a good all-around effort. Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili each added 15 points as six Spurs scored at least 10 in the win. Luckily we run an offense where a lot of people can touch the ball, said Duncan. We dont need one guy to set everything up for us. The reigning NBA champs bounced back from Fridays overtime loss to the lowly Lakers to avoid what would have been their second 1-3 four-game stretch this season. They played without guard Tony Parker, who sat with a hamstring strain. His availability for Monday is unknown. The Spurs return to Alamo City Wednesday for a tough test against the Memphis Grizzlies. On Friday, the Trail Blazers visit the Spurs. Portland stopped a two-game skid on Saturday night with a 95-85 road victory over the Indiana Pacers. The Blazers won the first two on the eastern swing, then dropped the next two on the trip to the Minnesota Timberwolves and Chicago Bulls. On Saturday, LaMarcus Aldridge scored 19 points with 14 rebounds to help the Blazers secure the victory. Damian Lillard managed to contribute 18 points on 7-of-22 shooting, while Nicolas Batum and Wesley Matthews netted 14 and 12 points, respectively, in the win. I think our minds our on the defensive end, said Matthews. The offense seemed to be flowing a little bit, but mainly because of what we were doing on the defensive end. The Blazers held the Pacers to 38.6 percent shooting from the floor, and 26.7 percent from long range. The Spurs did prevail in five games in the second round last season, but the Blazers only victory did come in Portland in Game 4. During the regular season, the Blazers have won four of the last six meetings with San Antonio, but the Spurs two wins came in the last two encounters. Portland is 9-2 in its last 11 regular-season tilts versus the Spurs. . The New York Rangers centre had a goal and two assists in a 4-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators ending a 13-game goal-scoring drought. . - The New Orleans Saints have re-signed receiver Joseph Morgan for one year and have agreed to a four-year deal with free agent fullback Erik Lorig. http://www.shoptheofficialcowboys.com/. - Roger Federer squandered a big lead and lost to No. . Vonn punctuated her near-perfect season in perfect fashion Friday, earning her fourth overall World Cup title with a dominating giant slalom victory. . Bryce Harper? He also came into Wednesday without a long ball and hadnt driven in a run. He was hitting .160, had nearly three times as many strikeouts as hits and was dropped to seventh in the batting order. LOS ANGELES -- A judge Thursday rejected an urgent request by Shelly Sterlings attorney asking that husband Donald Sterling and his lawyers be ordered to stop harassing her legal team and doctors in their dispute over the planned sale of the Los Angeles Clippers. A petition filed by Shelly Sterlings attorneys quoted allegedly threatening remarks made by Donald Sterling in phone calls and a letter sent by his lawyer to two doctors who declared him mentally incapacitated. Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas said the matter may involve "high emotions and some litigation posturing" and urged both parties to tone down their communications. "The court does not feel that the statements set forth in the ... petition rise to the level of great and irreparable injury to a party as called for in the Code of Civil Procedure," Levanas said in a written decision. Outside court Donald Sterlings attorney Bobby Samini said, "Clearly from the courts ruling its apparent Mr. Sterling is not a danger to anybody." A trial next month will look into assertions that Donald Sterling is mentally incapacitated and determine whether he was properly removed as an administrator under the terms of the family trust, which owns the Clippers, leaving Shelly Sterling alone as trustee with authority to sell the team. A $2 billion sale to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is pending. The physicians who determined he was mentally incapacitated in May examinations with Donald Sterling could be key witnesses in the trial. A filing by Shelly Sterlings attorney stated that on June 9 Donald Sterling called Shelly Sterlings attorney, Pierce ODonnell, threatening lawsuits and said: "I am going to take you out, ODonnell." ODonnell understood that to be a death threat. The document also alleged Donald Sterling called one of the physicians, Dr. Meril Platzer, told her shes "nothing but a fraud and a liar and a cheat" and menacingly warned, "Im going to see that you lose your license." He also is said to have threatened to sue Platzer and made similar threats in a profanity-laden message left for a second doctor, James E. Spar. "Im gonna get you fired from UCLA because youre nothing but a tramp. How dare you let someone use you that way?" Sterling tells Spars voicemail. "You know, you rely on doctors. You think that theyll be above it all. But obviously youre not. Youll sell yourself for nothing. How dare you? How dare you give my records to a lawyer for the purposes of using it against me?" The filing states that Sterlings lawyer Samini, followed up with a letter to each doctor accusing them of being a part of a conspiracy. The document called it a clear attempt to intimidate key witnesses in the case. Samini said his office had been bombarded with calls from representatives of Shelly Sterling urging them to settle the case. He contended that the call cited in ODonnells papers was made by ODonnell to his office and he turned the phone over to Donald Sterling. "They wanted to have aa conversation," he said of Sterling and ODonnell, but he listened from a distance.dddddddddddd "It was quite entertaining," Samini said. "I didnt hear any threats." Samini said he wrote letters to the doctors because he felt Donald Sterlings medical records were disseminated to the media inappropriately. He also said he believed that the doctors had been hired to give specific evaluations of Donald Sterling, which were suggested to them by Shelly Sterlings team. Samini said he has engaged other doctors to examine Donald Sterling and "the results are different and there are more to come." He said those would be released in court during the trial now scheduled for July 7. The terms of the trust state that two licensed physicians can determine a trustee "incapacitated" and both parties must co-operate in any such examination. Both Sterlings signed the terms, which also waive doctor-patient privilege and privacy rights for any "incapacitation" finding. Outside court, ODonnell said about the statement by Donald Sterling, "I took that as a threat on my life and I still do." He said Sterling used numerous expletives. "We think this is evidence of his lack of control, his impulsivity." He pointed out that the comments came the same day that Sterling went on a rant about the NBA, calling its board members "despicable monsters." He also said the doctors threatened by the 80-year-old Donald Sterling were shaken and one of them, Platzer, said she had misgivings about whether she should have gotten involved in the case at all. In her declaration she wrote that she believed Donald Sterling and his attorneys are "attempting to bully me into changing my opinion regarding Mr. Sterlings incapacity. I also do not want to be intimidated if I testify in this matter." ODonnell said he would ask for an injunction prohibiting Donald Sterling from intimidating witnesses. "This is not normal behaviour in civil litigation," ODonnell said. "This shows how erratic and volatile he is." Attached to the motion were letters from Samini to the doctors instructing them to not communicate further with anyone on Donald Sterlings medical condition or treatments without his prior consent. "Your conduct has already constituted interference with prospective economic advantage as part of a conspiracy," a letter dated June 10 said. Shelly Sterlings potentially record-breaking deal with Ballmer was struck after Donald Sterlings racist remarks to a girlfriend were recorded and publicized. The NBA moved to oust him as team owner, fined him $2.5 million and banned him for life. Donald Sterling has filed suit against the NBA for $1 billion in federal court alleging that the league violated his constitutional rights, committed breach of contract and violated antitrust laws. Sterling has also hired four private investigation firms to dig up potential dirt on the NBAs former and current commissioner and its owners for the case. ' ' '
