The shorthanded San Antonio Spurs (37-29) travel 220 miles northeast to Houston to take on the first place Houston Rockets (52-14). The Rockets are looking to lock in the number one seed in the Western Conference. They currently sit a game and a half ahead of the Golden State Warriors. The Spurs currently sit seventh in the West and with a loss tonight could move them out of the playoff picture.
The Spurs will once again be without All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge (22.2 PPG)and superstar Kawhi Leonard who has been limited to just nine games.
The Rockets are healthy and are clicking on all cylinders. When Chris Paul, James Harden and Clint Capela all play the Rockets are 34-2.
Greg Popovich will have his Spurs ready, but the lack of talent will probably be too much to overcome.
