I don't know if anyone is going to put up a preview before the game, so here's a mini-preview:
The Spurs are off to another slow start for the season, but are currently 7-6. Injuries to the big three probably have something to do with that. Manu might be out, but Parker should be in the game.
Like the Rockets, the Spurs are much better on offense than anyone expected, but they are also (like the Rockets) much, much worse than expected on defense. Expect Houston to try to push the tempo against the old guys.
Oddly enough (noted by Hardwood Paroxysm this morning), they're 0-4 on the road so far. Go figure.
Update from Tom: Recap coming tomorrow - got hung up tonight.
