SAN ANTONIO: LAST SEASON: 47-35, lost in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Gregg Popovich (23rd season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Patty Mills (12.0 ppg), G DeMar DeRozan (11.5 ppg, Toronto), F Rudy Gay (10.5 ppg), F LaMarcus Aldridge, (18.0 ppg), C Jakob Poeltl (7.2 ppg, Toronto).
KEY LOSSES: F Kawhi Leonard, G Manu Ginobili, G Tony Parker, G Danny Green
KEY ADDITIONS: DeRozan, Poeltl, F Marco Belinelli, G Lonnie Walker, C Chimezie Metu
PLAYERS TO WATCH: San Antonio's backcourt will be key in determining how the team fares this season after PG Dejounte Murray tore his right ACL. DeRozan comes to San Antonio along with Poeltl after an unexpected trade by Toronto for Leonard and Green. DeRozan wanted to remain with the Raptors his entire career, so he felt betrayed and was upset by the trade initially. The 6-foot-7 guard has since embraced San Antonio and stated he will take his revenge out on the league this season.
OUTLOOK: The Spurs were third in the West most of last season despite not having their leading scorer and defender in Leonard for all but nine games last season. San Antonio adapted throughout the season in preparation for Leonard's return, which never happened. In Leonard's place is DeRozan, a four-time All-Star, who should provide Aldridge with the additional scoring punch the team lacked at times in the starting lineup. The addition and maturation of young stars like Walker, Poeltl, Metu, G Derrick White and G Bryn Forbes along with DeRozan and Gay also provides the Spurs with one of the most athletic teams they have had in years.
HOUSTON: LAST SEASON: 65-17, lost in Western Conference finals.
COACH: Mike D'Antoni (fourth season, 15th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G James Harden (30.4 ppg), G Chris Paul (18.6 ppg), F P.J. Tucker, (6.1 ppg), F James Ennis (7.1 ppg), C Clint Capela (13.9 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Trevor Ariza, F Ryan Anderson, F Luc Mbah a Moute
KEY ADDITIONS: F Carmelo Anthony, Ennis, G Michael Carter-Williams
PLAYERS TO WATCH: A year after Anthony was not amenable to coming off the bench in Oklahoma City, the 10-time All-Star seems ready to accept a reserve role in Houston if it means helping the Rockets to a title. The addition of the talented Anthony, along with Ennis to pick up the slack on defense Houston lost in Ariza leaves the Rockets slightly better than they were a year ago when they lost to Golden State in the conference finals.
OUTLOOK: Harden, last year's MVP, and Paul should be even better in their second year together and Anthony adds a new dimension which greatly upgrades Houston's second unit. Ennis will have to pair with Tucker to provide a defensive presence and Capela must take another step this season after signing a $90 million contract this offseason if the Rockets hope to finally get past the Warriors and win their first title since back-to-back championships in 1994-95.
Spurs, Rockets clash in battle for playoff position

Given its franchise history of impeccability, San Antonio has provided fans with every reason to believe in its sudden invincibility, with performances of late elevating the Spurs' status from postseason hopefuls to a team so dangerous almost no opponent would welcome a first-round playoff matchup.

Even with its 110-105 home loss on Wednesday to the Miami Heat, a setback that snapped the Spurs' nine-game winning streak, San Antonio resembles an altogether different squad from earlier this season. Now, as they look ahead to a road clash on Friday with the Houston Rockets, the Spurs are climbing the Western Conference standings, and a home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs isn't inconceivable.

"I think our mindset and what we're trying to do is in the right place," Spurs guard Patty Mills said. "And then we've been focusing on ourselves no matter who we've played against. So, we feel the mindset is on us, and our development and how we're growing, and the things that we need to work on."

What the Spurs invested in was a recommitment on the defensive end. The results have been indisputable, with San Antonio producing a 104.1 defensive rating over the past 10 games, a mark that left them fourth in the league during that stretch entering Thursday.

"Defense -- and understanding that's what's going to take us to get to the next level and beyond," Mills said in explaining the Spurs' recent resurgence. "The last couple of weeks, we've been very active. But I think the growth comes from the trust in each other, that we need to be able to have each other's back on the defensive end, and then go down to the offensive end and share the ball, move the ball, and trust that we all can make plays.

"So, I think that when you combine that together, that's the growth that we're talking about."

The Rockets had been on a roll equal to that of the Spurs, winning 12 of 13 games before suffering a surprising overtime loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. Houston coach Mike D'Antoni has decided to divvy up rest for his regulars down the stretch, with guard Eric Gordon getting the night off in Memphis. As it turned out, the Rockets could have used a bit more offense; their defense betrayed them in their 126-125 loss at FedEx Forum.

"We didn't play with a lot of force for a long time," D'Antoni said. "We just didn't play with force. When you do that against any NBA team, you get beat."

Maintaining a consistent level of engagement defensively and on the glass has been a bugaboo for the Rockets this season. Their ability to intensify their efforts offensively, particularly with guard James Harden serving as the linchpin, can yield bad habits on the other end of the court.

When Houston needed Harden to engineer a comeback from a 19-point deficit on Wednesday, he responded with 28 of his game-high 57 points in the fourth quarter and overtime. His scoring burst coincided with defensive might, providing another snapshot of what the Rockets must do if they long to keep winning.

"If we play that way, the way that we played in the fourth quarter (and) overtime defensively, then we'll be all right," Harden said.
