SAN ANTONIO: The Spurs are essentially the same team that won the Southwest Division last season and led Golden State by 21 points in Game 1 of the Western finals before Kawhi Leonard was lost for the postseason to an ankle injury. A 21st straight postseason appearance is practically a given and it is hard not to imagine them remaining among the best teams in a loaded conference. The team will need another year of growth from Leonard after their quiet MVP candidate set career highs in scoring and assists while earning All-NBA first team and All-Defensive first team honors. Leonard's growth could come from his ability to distribute the ball more, especially with veteran point guard Tony Parker expected to be out until December while recovering from surgery on a ruptured left quadriceps tendon.
CHICAGO: The Bulls went all-in on rebuilding and are banking on a high lottery pick next spring. That means no more plugging holes to try to stay competitive and plenty of losses this season. They need to get production from a trio of players ' Kris Dunn, Lauri Markkanen and guard Zach LaVine ' they acquired from Minnesota for Butler on draft night. LaVine, a two-time slam dunk champion who averaged 18.9 points last season, is working his way back from a torn ACL and wasn't be ready for the start of the season. Dunn, coming off a disappointing rookie year, needs to show he can at least be a serviceable shooter after struggling from the outside. Markkanen was one of the top shooting big men in the nation at Arizona and will be counted on to bring that stroke to the NBA. Bobby Portis was suspended by the team for the first eight games of the season for his role in a practice altercation with Nikola Mirotic that resulted in Mirotic suffering maxillary fractures and a concussion, injuries that were expected to require surgery and keep Mirotic sidelined for an extended period of time.
Drama-filled Bulls set to face drama-less Spurs

CHICAGO -- As the Chicago Bulls embark on a multi-year rebuilding process, they do so understanding there will be plenty of difficult moments along the way.

Just one game into the new season, a young team filled with fresh, new faces has already experienced its share of drama. A fight in practice this week left forward Nikola Mirotic sidelined for 4-6 weeks and forward Bobby Portis suspended for eight games for punching Mirotic, who suffered facial fractures and a concussion in the altercation.

The Bulls open their home slate on Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs following a 117-100 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. After staying close for the first quarter, Chicago was outscored 30-4 to begin the second quarter. Just like that, the reality of the uphill climb the Bulls will face all season began to set in.

"It's about giving great effort, playing for each other, doing some of the good things we did in our (training) camp by playing with pace and unselfishness," Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said after the loss, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Without Portis and Mirotic, the Bulls will face the Spurs at far from full strength. Chicago also remains without guards Zach LaVine (knee), Kris Dunn (left index finger) and Cameron Payne (foot).

Portis returned to practice Friday and has apologized for his actions, Hoiberg said. But Hoiberg told reporters that the job of himself and his coaches is to help players adjust to new positions they must play while Chicago remains short-handed.

Until the Bulls are able to heal up, they will depend on center Robin Lopez, who scored 18 points against Toronto to go along with 17 points and eight rebounds from rookie Lauri Markkanen in his NBA debut.

"You learn a lot every game you play, so I've gotten more comfortable every time I've stepped on the court," Markkanen told reporters Thursday night, according to the Tribune.

San Antonio enters Saturday's road opener after beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 107-99 Wednesday night.

The Spurs won despite playing without last year's leading scorer Kawhi Leonard and veteran guard Tony Parker. Leonard is out with right quadriceps tendinopathy while Parker is out until mid-November after undergoing surgery on his left quadriceps tendon.

LaMarcus Aldridge, who scored 25 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in Wednesday's victory, will need to continue to pace the Spurs until Leonard and Parker are able to return.

"I'm just going to play and whatever happens, happens," Aldridge told reporters after Wednesday's victory. "I'm more comfortable for sure. Playing more confident. Hopefully that translates to us being better out there."

Danny Green will help carry the load after he scored 17 points Wednesday against Minnesota while Rudy Gay, who signed with San Antonio in the offseason, finished with 14 points and five rebounds.

Gay played Wednesday for the first time since last January, when he tore his Achilles tendon. Now healthy, Gay hopes to contribute to his new team after working so hard to return to the court.

"Man, it felt good (to play)," Gay told reporters on Wednesday. "I kind of got emotional in the game just because I've been through so much these last couple of months. I've been getting so many text messages that motivate me to keep going. It just reminds me of what I've been through these last couple of months."
