The San Antonio Spurs (36-11) get back on the court tonight as they will host the Charlotte Bobcats (11-33) for the final meeting this season with Tim Duncan still questionable for tonight's game. However, the team will welcome back coach Gregg Popovich who has been out battling the flu. The Spurs won the first meeting 132-102 on Dec. 8 in Charlotte. The Spurs set an NBA single-game high dishing out 38 assists team and a team season-high connecting on 50 field goals, including 19 three pointers (second most in franchise history) versus the Bobcats. Tony Parker led the team with 23 points and 9 assists. The Spurs are coming off a 108-99 win over the Suns in San Antonio. Parker finished with 31 points, 7 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals while Mani Ginobili added 20 points, 3 rebounds and 3 steals off the bench. The Bobcats are coming off a 85-93 loss to the Bulls in Chicago. Kemba Walker scored 18 points, 6 assists and grabbed 4 rebounds. And as the Spurs look to continue their dominance at the AT&T Center and go for their 17th win in a row, here are five things to watch for during the contest: • Spurs' Parker is now one of two point guards in the NBA (Russell Westbrook) to be averaging at least 20.0 points and 7.0 assists. • The Bobcats rank third in the NBA in fast break points, at 16.9 per game. • Bobcats' Ramon Sessions has scored in double figures in 12 of his last 14 games.   • The Bobcats are 0-5 on the road when their opponent score between 90-99 points.   • The Bobcats are 2-11 on the road when trailing at halftime.
