SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS:Considering how exhausted he looked by the end of the Finals, don't be surprised if TONY PARKER gets more rest during the regular season . . . DANNY GREEN had a coming-out party this past June. A three-point specialist who can defend, the Spurs will lean on him more heavily during the first 82 . . . MANU GINOBILI looks oh-so-close to being done. His minutes will decline . . . MARCO BELINELLI adds quality depth behind Green. He'll take many of the minutes that used to go to Ginobili and Gary Neal, who left for Milwaukee . . . CORY JOSEPH enters the season as the favorite to back up Parker, but it's a fluid situation . . . NANDO DE COLO fell out of the rotation last season, but has enough talent that he should bounce back . . . PATTY MILLS is more of a cheerleader than a useful bench piece. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN just keeps going. The 2012-13 regular season was his best in years. The Spurs will keep his minutes in check, but he likely has another great season in him . . . KAWHI LEONARD is one of the league's elite role players, and he seems to keep getting better. He can shoot, score off the dribble and defend . . . JEFF AYRES is a skilled big man who will back up Duncan and can play alongside him for stretches. Like all of their frontcourt players besides Duncan, the player formerly known as Jeff Pendergraph, will see his playing time will fluctuate greatly depending on matchups. CENTERS: TIAGO SPLITTER continues to improve rapidly, and he'll now take the bulk of the minutes alongside Duncan. But as we saw in last year's Finals, head coach Gregg Popovich will keep him on the bench if the matchup isn't right . . . BORIS DIAW's versatility gives Pop options off the bench . . . MATT BONNER is pretty much just around to participate in the Three-Point Shootout at this point in his career.
DALLAS: GUARDS: MONTA ELLIS slides into the 2-guard spot vacated by O.J. Mayo. He should benefit from the attention Dirk Nowitzki gets and from playing alongside a pure point guard . . . JOSE CALDERON is a defensive liability, but he should have the Mavs' offense running more smoothly . . . VINCE CARTER has become one of the league's better sixth men. He'll see plenty of minutes for a team that figures to frequently play small ball . . . When healthy, DEVIN HARRIS should be the defensive side of a platoon with Calderon . . . Israeli star GAL MEKEL should be able to help at both guard spots on a part-time basis . . . WAYNE ELLINGTON has yet to prove he can do anything with second-unit minutes . . . After breaking his foot, SHANE LARKIN is looking at a redshirt year. FORWARDS: Last season was a bit of a lost season for DIRK NOWITZKI, who missed the beginning of the year after knee surgery and didn't get going until late. Health, as well as the arrival of a true point guard in Jose Calderon, should allow him to bounce back nicely . . . SHAWN MARION had a nice resurgence last season, and he should have at least one good season left as he plays for another contract . . . JAE CROWDER has a chance to establish himself as the heir apparent to Marion. He's a hustle guy right now, and whether he can be more will depend on whether he develops his jump shot . . . RICKY LEDO was a favorite NBA draft sleeper for many experts. But while the skilled wing has NBA talent, he also has a reputation for being a bad seed. Ledo is almost certainly headed to the D-League for now. CENTERS: SAMUEL DALEMBERT is a sad consolation prize in the Dwight Howard derby. He'll likely step in as a starter . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT has never been able to overcome injuries. He could end up splitting time with Dalembert . . . DEJUAN BLAIR will provide energy and offense at the four and five . . . BERNARD JAMES should continue to develop as a rim protector.

*Spurs-Mavericks Preview* =========================


San Antonio (22-6) at Dallas (16-12), 8:30 p.m. EDT

Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks entered their Christmas break with a needed win.

The San Antonio Spurs didn't have nearly as good a holiday.

Looking to build on their latest effort, the Mavericks try to avoid a sixth consecutive loss to the visiting Spurs as these Southwest Division rivals meet for the first time Thursday night.

Dallas (16-12) had dropped back-to-back games and four of six before winning 111-104 at Houston on Monday. Nowitzki led the way with 31 points, 10 of which came in the fourth quarter.

"You don't ever want to sit on two days at Christmas with a three-game losing streak, so we definitely wanted to have this one," Nowitzki told the team's official website. "We competed and everybody who was out there played hard."

After undergoing knee surgery and missing the first 27 games of 2012-13, the 35-year-old Nowitzki appears to be back to his old self. He is averaging a team-leading 21.5 points, 4.2 more than last season.

"The driving the ball is what's missing a little now," Nowitzki said. "I do a lot of one or two dribble and then up, but I want to get back to driving some more to the basket and get to the foul line. I don't think I'm in '11 shape, but compared to the last two years I feel a lot better. The right knee is great and I feel better."

The Mavericks could use a vintage performance from Nowitzki as they try to snap their recent woes against the Spurs (22-7). Dallas has dropped nine of 11 in the series, including five straight by an average of 17.4 points.

Nowitzki has been held to 13.6 per game and 35.9 percent shooting during that skid. However, he did score 21 and pull down 11 rebounds in a 92-91 loss at San Antonio on March 14, their last meeting.

The first-place Spurs look to get back on track after falling 111-98 to Houston on Christmas Day. Manu Ginobili scored a team-high 22 points off the bench but Tony Parker had a season-low six on 3-of-11 shooting.

"We didn't play well," said Parker, whose team is one of only two yet to lose back-to-back games this season. "Move on to the next one, it's the NBA."

San Antonio allowed the Rockets to shoot 52.3 percent, its third-highest mark surrendered thus far. The Spurs are 0-6 when yielding more than 110 points compared to 22-1 when they don't.

"We just didn't give very good performances," coach Gregg Popovich said. "You can live with that from time to time. Nobody's going to play perfect every night. But you can't combine poor performances with a lack of physicality and a lack of discipline. They whipped us. They whipped us good. That's an embarrassing loss."

Tim Duncan has been held to a combined 20 points on 8-of-27 (29.6 percent) shooting in the last two games.

Monta Ellis is averaging 25.9 points in 10 matchups against San Antonio since the start of 2009-10, his third-highest mark against any opposing club. Ellis, averaging 20.6 points, is shooting 50.0 percent at home compared to 42.7 percent on the road.

Dallas has compiled an 11-3 record on its own court. The Mavericks have won five straight within their division.
