KEY GAME INFORMATION
SAN ANTONIO: BACKCOURT: PG Tony Parker has clearly lost a step from the days of his prime. He can still capably run the offense, but stands little chance guarding the league's best point guards'most of whom are in the West. Lovable as he is, SG Manu Ginobili is even further over the hill. SG Danny Green was only 33.2% from deep last year and needs to bounce back. PGs Patty Mills and rookie Dejounte Murray should see plenty of time behind Parker. . . . FRONTCOURT: Tim Duncan had been such a large part of the identity of this Spurs team, and now he's gone. That's why they brought in PF LaMarcus Aldridge last offseason, though, and he assimilated to the team fairly well in his first year. C Pau Gasol comes via free agency to likely start at center. SF Kawhi Leonard is an MVP favorite, and will take his best shot at a third straight Defensive Player of the Year award. . . . BOTTOM LINE: Duncan's departure is going to hurt more than many people realize, but Gasol can still make a big difference in the right situation. Just as they are for seemingly everyone else, the Spurs are that right situation for Gasol.
MINNESOTA: BACKCOURT: PG Ricky Rubio catches flak for his inability to shoot, but he's uniquely well-suited to this team. His savant-like court vision and highly underrated defense would be missed if he were moved. SG Zach LaVine appears to have improved in the offseason and may move up on the team's list of scoring options. Rookie PG Kris Dunn is NBA-ready, but he may have trouble getting minutes in a crowded backcourt. . . . FRONTCOURT: Many have C Karl-Anthony Towns among their top ten players in the league right now. That's a little much, but it seems like he's not that far away, either. SF Andrew Wiggins averaged 20 a game in his second season but still showed plenty of room for improvement, which says good things about his ceiling. PF Gorgui Dieng is a good role player alongside lots of guys who need the ball. . . . BOTTOM LINE: How much better can a young team get in a single season? Oozing with talent, Minnesota is a good candidate for a case study to answer that question. New coach Tom Thibodeau will keep the best players on the court plenty, but expectations are a bit too high.
PREVIEW
Skidding Timberwolves face tall task vs. Spurs
 

The Minnesota Timberwolves had struggled to keep pace with several other teams vying for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Minnesota's current three-game losing streak hasn't helped matters.

Entering Tuesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs, the Timberwolves had dropped their last three contests - all on the road. Minnesota (28-41) allowed 123 points each against Miami and New Orleans and 117 against Boston on the trip as its defense disappeared during its skid.

"We came in with a lot of confidence and coming out of a road trip like this with no wins, it's rough," Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns told the Minneapolis Star Tribune after Sunday's loss to the Pelicans. "We're fighting for our lives. It seems like the last three games we're going up there with the knife at our own throats."

Meanwhile, San Antonio has already clinched a playoff spot. The Spurs bounced back from a two-game losing streak to top Sacramento on Sunday in San Antonio.

"We came back after a couple of losses pretty well," head coach Gregg Popovich told Spurs.com on Sunday.

The two straight losses matched the longest such streak this year by San Antonio (53-16). The Spurs had four players score in double-figures off the bench in Sunday's win against the Kings, including a team-high 22 points from Pau Gasol.

San Antonio turned the ball over just six times in the victory over the Kings, the fewest turnovers the Spurs have committed all season.

"I think we played better defense," forward Kawhi Leonard told Spurs.com. "We talked a little bit more out there, had a little bit more energy. We just stayed within ourselves."

Tuesday marks the fourth and final meeting in the regular season between San Antonio and Minnesota. The Timberwolves have yet to top the Spurs, losing to San Antonio as recently as March 4 in a 97-90 overtime defeat.

With Nemanja Bjelica sidelined for the rest of the year with a foot injury, Minnesota added Omri Casspi to the roster on Monday. The eight-year veteran forward spent most of this season with Sacramento and had a brief stint with New Orleans.

In 23 games this season, the 6-foot-9 Casspi averaged 6.1 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. The Timberwolves are his fifth team of his NBA career.

Thanks to its three-game losing streak, Minnesota is behind Denver, Portland, Dallas and New Orleans for the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference playoffs. With just 13 games remaining, there aren't many opportunities left for the young Timberwolves to make up ground.

"Our hopes were high, we were playing well, but on this road trip we played like we did at the beginning of the season, like we don't care," Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "It's a shame that we get three games like that, seeming like it's not important when they were the most important we played all season."
