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.
LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL was every bit an MVP-caliber player in his first year in L.A. They should monitor his minutes late in the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. . . His Achilles is on schedule to be healed by December, and CHAUNCEY BILLUPS will start once he's healthy. He's likely to lose athleticism, and his leash could be short if he shoots as poorly as he did last year . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD steps in to lead the second unit. We'll see how quickly his inefficient, shoot-first ways grow stale . . . ERIC BLEDSOE was a stud in the playoffs. He can't play extended minutes alongside Paul, but coach Vinny Del Negro knows he has to get Bledsoe on the floor . . . WILLIE GREEN provides capable depth, but he's on the outside looking in at the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN's knee injury likely isn't serious enough to linger into the season. He's starting to develop some post moves to go along with his dunks . . . CARON BUTLER played hurt for most of last year, but still did enough to nail down a starting job for this season . . . LAMAR ODOM moped his way back to L.A. Don't be surprised if he has a strong bounce-back year, especially considering he'll be the Clippers' best defensive big . . . GRANT HILL could see some starts, but more likely the 40-year-old is pegged for limited minutes . . . MATT BARNES will replace Hill once he injures himself again . . . RONNY TURIAF will provide some of the toughness they lost when Reggie Evans left . . . TREY THOMPKINS will continue to languish on the bench, especially after sitting out the preseason with a knee injury. CENTERS: He can block shots and rebound, but at this point DeANDRE JORDAN is just too much of a defensive liability in space to play 30-plus minutes. That's why the Clippers will often pair Lamar Odom with Blake Griffin in the frontcourt . . . RYAN HOLLINS can also defend the basket and has six fouls to give.

*Spurs-Clippers Preview* ========================


San Antonio (43-12) at Los Angeles (39-17), 10:30 p.m. EDT

Tony Parker carried his hot streak into the second half and has the San Antonio Spurs playing at a high level, but that hasn't been the case when he's faced Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Paul will try to build on his All-Star MVP performance for the Pacific Division leaders when two of the NBA's top point guards meet Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Parker, the Spurs' leading scorer with 21.0 points per game, is having one of his best stretches of the season, averaging 29.0 points and 9.0 assists in his last five games.

Aside from finishing with a season high-tying seven turnovers, Parker showed no signs of rust following the break with 30 points and 11 assists in a 108-102 victory at Sacramento on Tuesday.

"He picked up where he left off before the All-Star break," coach Gregg Popovich said. "He's having an unbelievable year. He just keeps doing it."

Parker, however, hasn't fared as well against the Clippers. He had a season-low four points on 2-of-7 shooting in a 106-84 loss at Staples Center on Nov. 7, and scored 11 in a 92-87 home defeat Nov. 19.

Parker also shot just 36.1 percent while averaging 17.3 points in the four-game sweep of the Clippers in the second round of last season's playoffs.

Paul scored 12.8 per game on 36.8 percent shooting in that series, but he's been playing well recently after missing nine straight games with a bruised right kneecap. He averaged 20.0 points while shooting 60.0 percent in his last four games before the break, and finished with 20 and 15 assists to win the All-Star MVP honors Sunday in Houston.

"It's something that I've never done," Paul told the team's official website following the Western Conference's 143-138 win. "It's something that I definitely didn't come into the game trying to achieve or think would even be possible."

Paul will try to bring that momentum into the second half, starting with this meeting between clubs with title aspirations. He led the way with 19 points and eight assists Nov. 19 to give the Clippers three straight regular-season wins in this series.

Los Angeles (39-17) rolled into the break with four consecutive victories by an average of 16.2 points, and it sits third in the West behind San Antonio (43-12) and Oklahoma City.

Blake Griffin has done most of his damage at home against the Spurs. The All-Star forward has averaged 24.8 points and 12.8 rebounds in the past five meetings in Los Angeles, including last postseason.

The Clippers are averaging 110.0 points while hitting 52.7 percent from the field during their four-game win streak. They'll also look to gain an advantage on the glass after outrebounding San Antonio 98-71 in the first two meetings.

With eight wins in their last nine away from home, the Spurs have the NBA's best road mark at 21-10. They've also won four straight and 15 of 16 overall en route to the league's top record.

Kawhi Leonard has given the Spurs a spark lately, averaging 15.8 points in his last eight games - 5.2 more than his season mark.
