The San Antonio Spurs (53-16) will visit the Houston Rockets (38-31) tonight in Houston in the team's final meeting this regular season. The Spurs and Rockets have met three previous times with San Antonio holding a 3-0 lead in the regular season series. In their their more recent matchup, the Spurs won 122-116 in San Antonio. Tony Parker finished with 31 points and 10 assists to lead the Spurs while Rockets' James Harden totaled 33 points, 7 assists and 5 boards. The Spurs are coming off a 104-97 overtime win over the Jazz in San Antonio. Parker finished with 22 points and 5 assists in his first game back since dealing with a left ankle injury. In the game, Tim Duncan surpassed Shaquille O’Neal on the NBA’s all-time career rebounding list for the 13th spot. Coach Gregg Popovich also won his 900th game of his career. The Rockets are coming off a 116-78 win versus Cleveland in Houston. Harden paced the Rockets with 20 points in the win. And as the Spurs and Rockets get set to tangle for the final time this season, here are five things to watch for during the game: • Spurs' Duncan is averaging 25.5 points and 15.0 rebounds in his last four games. • The last 10 wins by the Rockets at the Toyota Center have come by an average of 19.2 points. • The Rockets are giving up just 92.0 during their last five home games. • The Rockets have averaged 111.3 points against the Spurs and a league-best 110.1 on their home floor this season. • The Rockets are 11-4 this season when Harden reaches records 20 points and eight assists in a game.
