Talking Spurs-Rockets Preview - 3/14/09

Quote:
Spurs-Rockets Preview



The San Antonio Spurs fell short in their last outing against the only team ahead of them in the Western Conference standings. They hope to fare better against the team right behind them.

The Spurs look to tighten their hold on the Southwest Division lead and second place in the West when they visit the Houston Rockets on Saturday night.

San Antonio (43-21) had a three-game winning streak snapped with a 102-95 loss to the conference-leading Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night. Tony Parker and Michael Finley scored 25 points apiece and the Spurs shot 52.1 percent as a team, but it wasn't enough to overcome a 35-17 deficit at the end of the first quarter.

"We couldn't get anything done offensively, and defensively they made every shot (early)," Parker said. "After that we were in a big hole, and against the Lakers it's tough to come back."

The Spurs will try to avoid another slow start against the Rockets (43-24), who have won 12 of 15 to pull within 1 1/2 games of San Antonio.



Houston bounced back from its own loss to Los Angeles by taking a 91-86 win at Charlotte on Friday night. Yao Ming had 23 points and went 9-for-11 from the field, including his first 3-pointer in six years with time running out on the shot clock with 2:12 left in the game. The shot helped save the Rockets from a late collapse highlighted by turnovers on consecutive possessions in the final 1:12.

Yao, who's 2-for-10 lifetime from behind the arc, says he's not ready to add long-range shooting to his repertoire.
