KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.
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.

*Rockets-Spurs Preview* =======================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Houston (16-12) at San Antonio (22-8), 8:30 p.m. EDT

The Houston Rockets' high-powered offense is firing on all cylinders of late, and they've compiled an impressive winning streak as a result.

The Rockets will have to contend with another of the league's top scoring teams Friday night as they travel to San Antonio to play the Spurs, who have taken the first two meetings this season.

Houston and San Antonio rank first and second in points per game at 105.3 and 104.9, respectively, and their most recent matchup didn't disappoint. The Spurs won 134-126 in overtime at Houston on Dec. 10 as both teams saw three players score at least 20 points - and that was with Rockets star James Harden sitting out due to a sprained right ankle.

Harden returned the next game and the Rockets (16-12) have won seven of eight and five in a row since. Those last five victories came by an average of 17.2 points with Houston shooting 51.5 percent from the field.

An 87-84 win at Minnesota on Wednesday broke a string of three straight victories by 22 or more points, and it was the Rockets' third consecutive road win after they started 2-7 away from home. It was a gritty victory for a team that won by 23 points in Chicago one night earlier.

"We were kind of sluggish throughout the game," said Harden, who ranks among the league leaders at 25.8 points per game. "We stuck with it for four quarters. Every game we're not going to score the ball, we're not going to make shots every single game. In different games you have to grind it out and try to force a win."

Harden is averaging 29.6 points during the five-game winning streak, and 17 of his 30 points against the Timberwolves came in the fourth quarter. He converted three driving layups in the final 2:14, including the go-ahead basket with :39 left.

"When he's playing downhill on you, he's just a monster at that. He's coming at you," Houston coach Kevin McHale said. "It's just so hard to defend."

The Spurs (22-8) have won three straight overall and seven in a row at home to improve to 11-2 on their own court. A high-scoring attack is nothing new for San Antonio, which ranks fifth in the league over the last three seasons at 102.8 points per game.

But with the Spurs aiming for their first title since 2006-07, Tony Parker said the team is placing an even larger focus on defense. San Antonio ranks in the middle of the pack, allowing an average of 97.0 points.

"We want to be in the top five for everything defensively," said Parker, who leads the Spurs with 18.8 points and 7.2 assists per game. "We know if you want to win a championship, you have to be in the top five."

San Antonio allowed a season low in points in Wednesday's 100-80 win over Toronto, which had won five straight. The Spurs are giving up 88.3 points over their last three contests, which coincides with the return of defensive standout Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard, who sat out the previous 18 games with knee tendinitis, has 34 points and 10 steals in three games since coming back. His 4.1 steals per 48 minutes lead the NBA.

"With his length and ability to read situations, he can get a lot of deflections and steals that give you a good lift in some parts of the game," teammate Manu Ginobili said.

San Antonio won the first meeting 114-92 at home Dec. 7. Houston point guard Jeremy Lin tied a career high with 38 points in the second defeat, the Rockets' fourth in five meetings.

Four of the series' last 10 games have gone to overtime.
