Trail Blazers vs. Spurs, NBA playoffs 2014: Game time, TV schedule, radio and more

Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

Portland saved their season with a win on their home floor on Saturday night, but the series heads back to San Antonio where the Spurs have a chance to clinch.

There's at least one more game in this series, and it's all thanks to Will Barton. Portland's seldom-used bench player exploded for 17 points in Game 4 on Monday, as the Blazers beat the Spurs, 103-92.

The win extended Portland's season, as coach Terry Stotts experimented with point guard-less lineups, organic bench production and a twist on their offensive attack off the pick-and-roll. Damian Lillard was particularly impressive, taking rhythm jumpers off long picks, probing at what the Spurs defense would give him rather than forcing the issue.

San Antonio, meanwhile, couldn't seem to find the same rhythm they had in the first three games. Long, contested jumpers didn't fall in Game 4, and the Spurs shot just 16.7 percent from three. Tony Parker, who had been the hero all series long, scored just 14 points on 12 shots.

However, there's little reason for panic inside the San Antonio locker room. Although frustration was evident after Game 4 -- Gregg Popovich started his press conference so quickly most of the media missed the first half of it -- level heads will prevail for a team that has legitimate title aspirations.

The real question will be whether Portland can again find a way to throw a curveball to the Spurs like they did in Game 4. Maybe, just maybe, The People's Champ will prevail again.

Game time: 9:30 p.m. ET
