SAN ANTONIO: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost 4-3 to Denver in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Gregg Popovich (24th season, 1245-575).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Dejounte Murray (missed last season with knee injury), G Bryn Forbes (11.8 ppg), G DeMar DeRozan (21.2), F LaMarcus Aldridge (21.3), C Jakob Poeltl (5.5).
KEY ADDITIONS: F DeMarre Carroll, F Trey Lyles, G/F Keldon Johnson, F Luka Samanic
PLAYERS TO WATCH: DeRozan spent most of last season processing a trade that unexpectedly sent him to the Spurs and away from the Toronto Raptors, the franchise he pledged his devotion to ' then watched them win a title. Murray's injury also forced DeRozan to become the team's main distributor for the first time in his career. DeRozan set a career high with 6.2 assists per game but also had his second-lowest scoring average in six seasons. Murray is back and spent the offseason sending video of specific plays to show the 30-year-old guard how he could help him score more easily.
OUTLOOK: The Spurs continue to get younger and faster while trying to maintain their veteran presence and corporate knowledge. The latter received a huge boost with the addition of Hall of Famer Tim Duncan as an assistant coach. Duncan's knowledge of the Spurs' system, work ethic and camaraderie should help the team's development as it attempts to an establish an identity separate from but similar to the Big Three era spearheaded by Duncan that led to five NBA championships. Murray's return along with the return of White, expected emergence of Lonnie Walker IV and addition of Carroll should make the Spurs among the best wing defenses in the league.
PHOENIX: LAST SEASON: 19-63, finished 15th in Western Conference.
COACH: Monty Williams (first season with Suns, sixth season overall, 173-221).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ricky Rubio (12.7 ppg), G Devin Booker (26.6), F Kelly Oubre Jr. (15.2), F Dario Saric (10.6), C Deandre Ayton (16.3)
KEY LOSSES: F T.J. Warren, G/F Josh Jackson
KEY ADDITIONS: Rubio, Saric, G/F Cameron Johnson, F Frank Kaminsky III, F Cheick Diallo, G Ty Jerome
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Suns are trying to build a winning team around the core of Ayton and Booker, who are both still young and put up big numbers last season. The 7-foot-1 Ayton averaged a double-double in his rookie season while shooting nearly 59 percent from the field. Booker averaged 26.6 points per game and nearly seven assists. Oubre was a pleasant surprise after joining the team midway through last season, scoring nearly 17 points per game after the trade and playing good defense. Rubio gives the Suns an experienced point guard who should help Ayton, Booker and Oubre get better scoring chances. Rubio's presence also allows Booker to play off the ball and focus on scoring.
OUTLOOK: The Suns should be much better than the 19-win version of a year ago. Rubio's presence along with the input first-year coach Monty Williams should give the starting lineup some discipline and structure. Phoenix's ceiling depends on the development of Ayton and Booker. If the two can develop into All-Star caliber players than there might be something brewing in the desert. The major problem is the Western Conference is still stacked with good teams, so a move into the playoffs feels a little far-fetched this season.
Spurs, Suns set for Mexico City matchup

Phoenix and San Antonio checked some unwanted baggage onto the flight to Mexico City for their Saturday game.

The Suns showed intermittent focus in a 115-108 home loss to Memphis on Wednesday, when the Grizzlies built a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter and held on with late heroics from Ja Morant, whose highlight-reel slam locked it up.

"It was one of the worst losses -- if not the worst loss -- of the season," Suns guard Ricky Rubio said. "We didn't play how we know how to play. It will be a one-time thing. It can't happen again."

San Antonio may have one-upped them, losing a five-point lead in the final 20 seconds of the fourth quarter before falling to Cleveland 117-109 in overtime at home Thursday, the Spurs' franchise-record third consecutive overtime game.

"Cleveland played for 48 (minutes), we played for 24," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "That's the bottom line."

DeMar DeRozan missed two free throws with 14 seconds remaining in regulation to open the door.

"That's just not acceptable on my part," DeRozan said of the missed free throws.

The Suns and Spurs will meet Saturday as part of the NBA Mexico City games, a two-game set that opened with Dallas' 122-111 victory over Detroit before 20,006 at Arena Ciudad de Mexico on Thursday.

The NBA has played two regular-season games in Mexico in each of the last four seasons, and the Suns and Spurs -- among the franchises closest geographically to Mexico -- are no strangers to the event.

Suns' leading scorer Devin Booker scored 39 points when the Suns beat the Spurs 108-105 in Mexico City on Jan. 14, 2017, while erasing an 11-point deficit in the second half.

Booker had 15 points and 10 assists on 6-of-17 shooting against Memphis, missing all three three-point attempts. He played with a bandaged right wrist, but Suns coach Monty Williams said, "He's not one to use soreness as an excuse, so he's fine."

"I think we came in complacent, thinking it was going to be easier than it was," said Booker after the loss that kept the Suns from returning to .500 for the first time since Nov. 24. "I think this will humble us."

The Suns (11-13) have their best record through 24 games since starting 12-12 in 2014-15.

San Antonio (9-15) is 4-12 since a 121-112 victory over Oklahoma on Nov. 7, although it has won two of three and scored a season-high 135 points in a double-overtime victory over Houston on Dec. 3.

Frank Kaminsky had a season-high 24 points, Kelly Oubre had a 14-point, 13-rebound double-double and Rubio had 22 points, eight assists and five turnovers against the Grizzlies. The Suns had 29 assists -- their eighth straight game with at least that many, tying a franchise record.

"We have to be more consistent," Williams said. "But 29 assists, most nights you'd be like, 'This is fine,' but that's not us. We're usually in the 30s. I could just think of five or six, maybe seven times where we just didn't move it to the next guy, so that's something we're going to be talking about."

Williams played two seasons under Popovich in San Antonio and credits his offensive philosophy of quick ball movement to lessons learned there.
