I assume you are referring to
Spassky vs Huebner, 1979, but I don't think the names in this game are reversed. It was played in this tournament:
I checked if there was a discrepancy in the number of games Spassky and Portisch played with Black and White, but found none.
Spassky was (is) the kind of player who didn't mind playing the same variation with both colours.

Thank you for your responses. Very thoughtful.
Spassky was playing his best chess leading up to winning the WC. From 67-69, he was really crushing people. This is why I asked, as this game seems so typical of Spassky, if he were white, but it seems it is not the case.
|Feb-11-08|| ||GlassCow: Beautiful play by Porisch. One of the many reasons I will never be better than an average player is that I don't have the courage to play moves like 21. NxF4, walking into a pin on the dangerous looking F file.|
