SAN ANTONIO -- The Portland Trail Blazers were clearly rattled by the San Antonio Spurs in the opener of the Western Conference semifinals, and they were almost snake bit before Game 2. Tomas Hertl Sharks Jersey . A baby rattlesnake, estimated at about 3 to 4 feet, was discovered in the teams locker room at the AT&T Center about two hours before the game Thursday. It was found by reserve forward Thomas Robinson, who recoiled a few feet after seeing the snake when he moved a bag from his locker. "I didnt (see it)," Portland coach Terry Stotts said. "They said it was a young one." Young or not, guard Mo Williams tweeted that it was a scary experience. Rattlesnakes are a venomous species that can grow up to 8 feet and weigh more than 10 pounds. It takes its name from a "rattle" at the end of its tail that produces a rattling sound when shaken to warn predators of its presence. It is unknown if the rattlesnake found in the locker room made any noise, but Robinsons cries were enough to alert his teammates of its presence. "Well, its bizarre to have a venomous snake in your locker room," Stotts said. "I dont know if its ever happened before. That sounds like an ABA story." The Spurs have a history in the ABA and also with critters in the AT&T Center. The stadium hosts the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo each February and its grounds are used for livestock shows during the three-week event. Spurs guard Manu Ginobili also swatted down a bat that was flying above the court at the AT&T Center on Nov. 1, 2009. Ginobili had to have rabies shots after striking the bat with his bare hands. Fortunately for the Spurs, Ginobili wasnt needed to corral the snake. "I think some people here (captured it)," Stotts said, smiling. "They have them on hand at the AT&T Center. They have a specialist." It probably wasnt a good omen for Portland, which is seeking to even its series with San Antonio. "Or a good sign," Stotts said. "We survived." The Trail Blazers will gladly accept any good fortune after being walloped in their first second-round appearance in 14 years. San Antonio led by as many as 31 points and never trailed in rolling to a 116-92 victory on Tuesday. Tony Parker had 32 points and nine assists, as many as Portland had as a team, as the Trail Blazers never threatened the defending Western Conference champions. Stotts was asked if he thought someone from the Spurs had planted the snake to rattle his young charges. "Youre the investigative reporter, you figure it out," Stotts said, tongue in cheek. Stotts was then asked if he considered returning the favour and planting the snake in San Antonios locker room. "That thing, its like Fort Knox over there. You cant get in," he said. Well, the room with officials Joe Crawford, Bill Spooner, Derrick Stafford and Sean Wright is only about 50 feet away from the Blazers locker room. "And I cant comment on the officials," Stotts said, laughing. Custom San Jose Sharks Jersey .C. - Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith said he will have an MRI on Monday morning to determine if he has any ligament damage to his left knee.Joe Pavelski Sharks Jersey . -- Patrick Holland scored the shootout winner and Robert Mayer made 30 saves, as the Hamilton Bulldogs defeated the Lake Erie Monsters 3-2 in the American Hockey League on Friday.The Winnipeg Goldeyes bats were hot early in their final exhibition game on Tuesday night against the Kansas City T-Bones. The Goldeyes scored eight of their 10 runs in the first two innings, led by Donnie Webb who drove in three over the first two innings. From there the Goldeyes pitching staff took over only giving up one run in the eighth inning. Making the final a 10-1 win for the Goldeyes as they took both exhibition games against the T-Bones. It started with Tyler Kuhn, at the top of the batting order, leading off the first inning with a double. He then came around to score on a two-run homerun hit by Ray Sadler. Reggie Abercrombie then got on base with a double of his own and was driven in by Webb. The offense continued to role in the second with the first three Goldeyes batters all reaching base and all eventually coming around to score. Sadler then got on base with a walk, and he, along with Josh Mazzola — who reached base on a single — were the two runners Webb batted in in the second. The Goldeyes took a commanding 8-0 lead through the bottom of the second. The every batter in the Goldeyes lineup got a hit in the game, with six players getting multiple hits, including Mazzola who went three for five. Then the Goldeyes ninth run came in the fifth inning after Webb reached base on a walk and Alen hit a RBI double. The T-Bones scored their lone run in the bottom of the eighth against Goldeyes pitcher Gabe Aguilar. Brent Burns Sharks Jersey. But the Goldeyes would reclaim their nine run lead in the top of the ninth with Mazzola scoring his second run on a RBI single from Casey Haerther.  The Goldeyes had seven different pitchers take the mound to face the T-Bones batters, and they held the Kansas City side to only six hits. Alex De La Cruz who came in during the sixth inning was looking to bounce back from a tough outing in Lincoln on the weekend. He pitched for one full inning, giving up one walk and recording a strikeout. "Coming in in the middle of the inning with runners on base, getting those guys out, that is what you want from your bullpen guys," Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea said of De La Crux on the Jewel 101 post-game show. "He came out and got a few quick outs, its nice to see him bounce back after getting roughed up in Lincoln." The Goldeyes finish their exhibition schedule with a 5-1 record, and had one game rained out. "We got the innings in that we wanted to," said Vermilyea of the exhibition slate. "Pitchers got to see batters, and batters got to get a feel for the batters box." Now Winnipeg travels to Amarillo as they prepare to open the regular season on Thursday against the Sox at Amarillo National Bank Stadium. "Heading into Amirallo, we just hope to keep this going," said Vermilyea of the teams offensive and defensive production. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale JerseysCheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
