Spurs Return to Play 1/13/14
UNDATED - A day after subduing Minnesota by 18 points, San Antonio is back in action as part of the seven-game NBA schedule tonight.
The Southwest Division-leading Spurs take a road trip to New Orleans, rolling into the Big Easy on a four-game winning streak. The Spurs face the prospect of having to compete without key players Manu Ginobili (jih-NOH'-blee) Tiago Splitter and Danny Green who are all nursing injuries.
Houston tries to keep the heat on San Antonio for the lead in the division. The second-place Rockets travel to Boston to take on the Celtics who have plunged down the Atlantic Division standings with eight straight losses.
Toronto tops that division with a mediocre 18-17 record. That's what they take into their home game against Milwaukee tonight.
Denver's five-game winning streak is currently the best in the NBA. The Nuggets play at Utah tonight.
