The San Antonio Spurs (13-9) will host the Houston Rockets (12-9) tonight in the AT&T Center which will mark the last time these two Texas teams will face off this season. The Rockets hold the season series lead at 2-1, and the Spurs need to get the win to tie up the series especially if these two team meet in the playoffs.

It’s been almost a month since Manu Ginobili broke his hand. Since then, the San Antonio Spurs have been playing admirably, sitting at 13-9, and a game behind Dallas in the Southwest division. While it has been great to see some other Spurs step up in his absence, I think the fans are ready to have their Argentinian superstar back, and we may be getting close.

Though it’s a condensed season, I have the privilege of covering the San Antonio Spurs’ home games here at Project Spurs.

Entering tonight's San Antonio Spurs vs. Houston Rockets game, which tips off in about 30 minutes, there's not much these teams don't know about each other.
