After coming one Chris Paul hamstring injury away from making their first NBA Final appearance since 1995, the Houston Rockets entered the season with plenty of question marks. With defense-minded wings Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute both departing for greener financial pastures, the Rockets have taken a step back on the defensive end where replacements Carmelo Anthony and Michael Carter-Williams have struggled early on. A nagging injury to league MVP James Harden has not helped Houston, which will receive no sympathy from Spurs faithful.

The last time the two teams took the court, San Antonio lost starting point guard Dejounte Murray, presumably for the season. DeMar DeRozan has been masterful in Murray’s absence, particularly in crunch time where his play has sealed a pair of recent victories versus Western Conference rivals. Look for DeRozan to continue to flourish as a closer.
