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.
HOUSTON: GUARDS: JAMES HARDEN is a franchise player, and as one of the league's elite pick-and-roll threats, he and Dwight Howard have the potential to be dominant . . . Trade rumors will continue to circle JEREMY LIN, who isn't an off-the-ball threat to fit alongside Harden. He is, however, clearly a starting-caliber point guard . . . PATRICK BEVERLEY really shined in back-up minutes last year, and he's part of the reason that Lin is expendable. He's strong defensively, and he proved capable of running the second unit. He'll be one of the league's top back-up PGs if Lin stays . . . Rookie combo guard ISAIAH CANAAN will be developed as a spot-up shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a roster filler . . . AARON BROOKS is around as a reclamation project . . . RONNIE BREWER provides a much-needed athletic perimeter defender. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS is an elite role player. He entered the league with the reputation as a pure athlete, but it's his ability to knock down the corner three that's made him so valuable in Houston . . . GREG SMITH looks like another great find for the Rockets. He's an athletic banger who can allow Dwight Howard to roam a bit on defense . . . DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS showed flashes as a rookie, but the stretch four looks like a situational role player for the foreseeable future . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA will lend a veteran presence to the second unit . . . Versatile TERRENCE JONES could be in for more minutes as the Rockets look for the right role players . . . OMRI CASSPI might be getting his last chance at the NBA. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD should be much happier in Houston, though the Rockets still have to convince him that he can dominate as a pick-and-roll player. He should make everyone forget about his season with the Lakers . . . The fact is OMER ASIK just doesn't fit alongside Howard. But if he stays somewhat happy in Houston, he could be a valuable second-unit player . . . MARCUS CAMBY has latched on to chase a ring.

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


San Antonio (33-11) at Houston (29-17), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Uncharacteristic performances have the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets both on the brink of skids they have yet to endure this season.

San Antonio will try to avoid losing consecutive games for the first time Tuesday night when it visits Houston, which will be looking to avoid its first three-game slide.

The Spurs (33-11) and Rockets (29-17) own two of the Western Conference's top five records, with first-place San Antonio holding a five-game lead over second-place Houston in the Southwest Division. However, the Spurs have dropped three of five, while the Rockets come off back-to-back losses to Memphis.

The Spurs had a six-game road winning streak snapped Sunday in a 113-101 loss to Miami. They trailed by as many as 29 points in their first meeting since Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

The absences of Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green - who both have hand injuries - as well as Tiago Splitter (shoulder) appear to be taking their toll on San Antonio's defense. The trio ranks No. 1-3 among players in San Antonio's regular rotation in terms of plus-minus per game, while Green and Leonard lead the club in steals.

The Spurs, who are a league-best 16-4 away from home, surrendered a season-worst 58.1 field goal percentage to the Heat. San Antonio was outscored 33-21 in the third quarter while being outrebounded 14-3.

"Everybody has injuries. You have to deal with them during the season," said Tony Parker, who had 11 points versus Miami and appeared to be OK after giving San Antonio another scare with a jammed finger. "Obviously, it's hurting us but they're going to come back. We just have to keep pushing and try to get better."

Houston took a 99-81 loss in Memphis on Saturday after suffering an 88-87 home setback on Friday. The Rockets, who are one of the league's best shooting teams at 47.0 percent, shot 38.8 percent over the home-and-home, including a 9-for-32 3-point performance Saturday. They were 14 of 34 from beyond the arc Friday.

"The last two games we've been terrible offensively," said Chandler Parsons, who was 5 of 16 from the field and 1 of 6 from 3-point range after hitting 10 of 14 3-point attempts Friday.

James Harden, who averaged 24.3 points prior to the last two contests, totaled 26 points in the two games on 8-of-24 shooting.

Facing the Spurs could help him get back on track, considering he's averaging 30.0 points in five games against them since joining the Rockets prior to 2012-13. He's shooting 60.9 percent from 3-point range in those contests.

Harden totaled 59 points in two wins earlier this season, including a 112-106 road victory on Nov. 30 snapping a seven-game skid in San Antonio. The Rockets also claimed a 111-98 win there on Dec. 25.

Houston hit 25 of 54 (46.3 percent) of its 3-point attempts in two meetings, with Parsons going 9 of 17 with 46 points.

"It's going to be a tough game," Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. "The first two games don't make any difference. We're a different team. They're a different team. We've got to play really well. That team lost to Miami, they're going to come in hungry."

Parker was just 3 of 11 in the second matchup with six points, while Tim Duncan had 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting.

A win would see San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich move ahead of Red Auerbach for sole possession of 10th all-time in career coaching victories.
