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.
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.

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


San Antonio (53-16) at Houston (38-31), 7:00 p.m. EDT

With Tony Parker back, the San Antonio Spurs appear to be in much better shape as they continue their quest for the top seed in the Western Conference.

Parker has also been a big reason why the Spurs have an opportunity to wrap up their first four-game season sweep of the Houston Rockets since 2005-06 on Sunday night.

Following his eight-game absence because of a sprained left ankle, Parker finished with 22 points - including six in overtime - to lead the Spurs to a 104-97 victory over Utah on Friday.

Parker was averaging 27.0 points on 53.4 percent and 7.9 assists in eight games prior to his injury against the Kings on March 1.

"The game got tight at the end in regulation and then in overtime, and he was Tony Parker," said coach Gregg Popovich. "Like I said, up until the time he got hurt, there wasn't a point guard in the league playing better than Tony Parker."

The Spurs (53-16) are trying to hold off Oklahoma City for the top spot in the West and begin a challenging portion of their schedule on Sunday with five straight games against teams with winning records.

Parker should be able to get the Spurs off to strong start as he looks to carry them to a fifth straight win against the Rockets. He recorded his first career triple-double with 27 points, 12 assists and 12 rebounds in a 134-126 overtime victory in Houston on Dec. 10 and had 31 points and 10 assists in a 122-116 home win on Dec. 28.

Parker also led the way with 17 points and seven assists in a 114-92 victory in San Antonio on Dec. 7.

Tim Duncan is playing like his old self heading into this contest, averaging 25.5 points and 15.0 rebounds in his last four.

The Spurs have scored 123.3 per game - 18.9 above their season average - and shot 54.7 percent from the field in the three wins.

Houston, though, has been playing better defensively over its season-long seven-game homestand. While the Rockets have allowed 102.4 points per game at home on the season, they've given up just 92.0 over their last five at the Toyota Center.

Houston claimed its 10th win in 12 home games with a 116-78 victory over Cleveland on Friday. The Rockets held the Cavaliers to 53 points over the final three quarters and 36.0 percent shooting for the game.

Harden led the way with 20 points, Thomas Robinson had 15 off the bench and Omer Asik added 13 and 11 rebounds for the Rockets, who shot 57.1 percent.

"That was a big win for us, and now we've got an even bigger one coming up Sunday," said forward Chandler Parsons, who also added 13 points.

Houston (38-31), which is battling Golden State for the sixth seed in the West, opens a difficult stretch of its own with the Spurs, Indiana, Memphis and the Los Angeles Clippers in its next four games.

While Harden missed the meeting in Houston with a sprained right ankle, he's totaled 62 points on 20-of-38 shooting in his two games against the Spurs.

Jeremy Lin stepped up in Harden's absence and matched his career high with 38 points in that December loss, but will have to bounce back after tying his season low with four points on Friday.

The Rockets have averaged 111.3 points against the Spurs and a league-best 110.1 on their home floor this season.
