Talking Kings-Spurs Preview-10/31/09

Kings-Spurs Preview

STATS Senior Writer

(AP) -- With a lineup featuring Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Richard Jefferson, the San Antonio Spurs boast one of most talented teams in the NBA. It hardly showed last time out, though.

The Spurs look to bounce back from a disappointing effort Saturday night when they host the Sacramento Kings, who are coming off a tough loss.

There was a time when Duncan could practically carry San Antonio by himself, but for the Spurs (1-1) to be successful and contend for a title these days, the veteran star needs some support from his teammates.

That shouldn't be a problem with Parker running the offense, Jefferson handling a share of the scoring and Ginobili providing a spark off the bench, but those three didn't do much to help Duncan in Thursday's 92-85 loss to Chicago.

An 11-time All-Star and two-time MVP, Duncan finished with 28 points on 13 of 19 shooting and also grabbed 16 rebounds. The rest of the team, though, shot 33.9 percent (20 of 59) and had 28 boards.

Ginobili scored 12 points but was just 3 for 11 while Parker, who left Wednesday's season-opening 113-96 win over New Orleans following a hard fall in the third quarter, had eight points on 4 of 11 shooting and three assists.
