KEY GAME INFORMATION
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS: TONY PARKER played at an MVP level last year. His eye injury is obviously not an issue, and he was constantly getting on coach Gregg Popovich to let him finish meaningless games last year. There's no reason he can't repeat last year's performance . . . MANU GINOBILI dealt with a series of nagging injuries last year, and it's clear the team will have to monitor his regular-season workload . . . GARY NEAL provides solid minutes in this rotation, mostly at the point, and is able to consistently knock down threes . . . DANNY GREEN's rotation spot is in a bit of peril. He was too much of an offensive liability in last year's Western Conference Finals . . . NANDO de COLO is a combo guard who can provide instant offense off the bench. He can shoot it and does a nice job getting to the line . . . PATTY MILLS steps in as another viable option in this loaded backcourt . . . CORY JOSEPH's roster spot is in jeopardy after a middling D-League season. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN will continue to save it up for the playoffs. He still has plenty left in the tank, but he'll get tons of rest in March and April and more and more often defers to Tony Parker on offense when he does play . . . There's plenty to like about KAWHI LEONARD, who proved to be useful on both ends of the court last season. He'll be asked to be a little more aggressive offensively this year and should even have a couple of sets designed for him . . . STEPHEN JACKSON was a bit of a disaster in Milwaukee before landing with the Spurs last year. He's another veteran who will be paced during the regular season. And while he's been a facilitator in the past, he's really just a catch-and-shoot guy in San Antonio . . . MATT BONNER will continue to come off the bench and hoist some threes. CENTERS: BORIS DIAW's pick-and-pop ability makes him Popovich's top choice in the center rotation . . . TIAGO SPLITTER looks to be a career second-unit guy. He works hard and can defend, but he's just too clunky on the offensive end . . . DeJUAN BLAIR can pick up some cheap baskets, but his lack of offensive skills and defensive size makes him a fringe rotation player.
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: RAMON SESSIONS will have to adjust to a major downgrade in teammates, but he has the kind of versatile offensive skill set to be the focal point of this offense . . . The athletic GERALD HENDERSON has made strides the past two seasons. Realistically, his offensive skills are those of a No. 4 or 5 option . . . Coach Mike Dunlap is high on KEMBA WALKER, who was sometimes overwhelmed as a rookie. With a few new sets built in for him, he could thrive as a sixth man getting starter's minutes . . . BEN GORDON won't overtake Henderson, but should see big minutes as the Cats' only shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a D-League talent . . . MATT CARROLL, in the final year of his $27 million deal, symbolizes everything that's gone wrong under Michael Jordan. FORWARDS: Drafting MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST was as much about changing the losing culture as it was adding a piece they needed. MKG's statistical output is a question mark, but he'll see big minutes as a defensive stopper and intangibles guy . . . This team is seriously lacking in the post, where they may have no choice but to play TYRUS THOMAS for significant minutes. The talented but uber-underachieving big man claims to have added 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason. If nothing else, they might showcase him in a desperate attempt to get some trade value . . . Rookie JEFFERY TAYLOR figures to make the team and has the versatility and athleticism to be a respectable second-unit guy. CENTERS: Charlotte sees BISMACK BIYOMBO as a franchise cornerstone. He can certainly rebound and block shots, but his offense is atrocious . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD brings a veteran presence. At his age he can't go more than 15 or so minutes per night . . . BYRON MULLENS never saw a shot he didn't like. He'll get one more chance to prove he's an NBA rotation player, able to play the four or five . . . DeSAGANA DIOP is doing those things that DeSagana Diop does.

*Spurs-Bobcats Preview* =======================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

San Antonio (15-4) at Charlotte (7-10), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Since the Charlotte Bobcats matched their win total from last season's record-setting debacle, they've slipped right back into their losing habits.

Facing a surging San Antonio Spurs team likely won't cure their woes.

Charlotte looks to avoid a seventh consecutive loss Saturday night against San Antonio, which begins a four-game road trip.

The Bobcats finished the shortened 2011-12 season 7-59 and set the NBA record for futility with a .106 winning percentage, but it took them only 12 games to reach that win total this season after beating Washington on Nov. 24.

Charlotte (7-11), though, hasn't won since, dropping six straight following Friday's 108-93 loss at Milwaukee. Even the return of Gerald Henderson, who missed 13 games with a left foot sprain, hasn't been able to spark the struggling squad.

Henderson scored a team-high 19 points off the bench in his third game back for the Bobcats, who have dropped the last five by no more than six points after their streak began with a 45-point loss at Oklahoma City.

"We didn't come out with a lot of energy," Henderson said. "I think when you play a team like Milwaukee with really good guards, at home, you have to match that energy."

Kemba Walker hit 8 of 13 from the field and finished with 16 points while rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 11 points and 11 boards for the Bobcats, who trailed by as many as 26.

"We spotted them 33 points," coach Mike Dunlap said of the first quarter. "We're running uphill the rest of the way. We've got to do better."

Charlotte has lost 13 of 15 all-time meetings with San Antonio, which is coming off a 114-92 blowout of Houston on Friday.

The Spurs (16-4), whose only loss in their last nine games was a five-point defeat at Miami on Nov. 29 when coach Gregg Popovich rested Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green, shot 55.2 percent against the Rockets and never trailed.

Nobody played more than 26 minutes as six players scored in double figures.

"We weren't as consistent as we'd like to be, but we had a really good pace offensively and I got to play a lot of guys," Popovich said.

Parker scored a team-high 17 points and added seven assists, while Duncan finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Tiago Splitter added 15 points while Ginobili and Patrick Mills scored 12 apiece - part of a 59-point effort from the Spurs' bench.

Duncan said the blowout victory was needed given the trip ahead.

"Obviously with the game (Saturday), and this long flight tonight, we wanted to have as much rest as possible and not take Charlotte lightly," Duncan said. "It was good to keep our minutes down, good to give a lot of guys a lot of minutes and spread it around as much as possible. We need as much rest as possible."

Parker scored 15 points and Duncan added 14 in the Spurs' 102-72 win March 2 in the most recent meeting. The Bobcats last beat San Antonio 92-76 on Jan. 15, 2010, in Charlotte.
