The San Antonio Spurs (50-16) will host the Cleveland Cavaliers (22-43) without guard Kyrie Irving (out for season with left AC sprain) tonight at the AT&T Center in what will be their final meeting of the regular season. The Spurs won the first game 96-95 in Cleveland with Kawhi Leonard hitting the game winning three pointer. Leonard finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 4 blocks. Cleveland was paced by Dion Waiters 20 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

Shaun Livingston finished with 13 points and 5 rebounds to lead the Cavs in the loss. And as the Spurs and Cavs get set to face off, here are five things to watch for during the game: • In the fourth quarter, the Spurs are averaging a league-best 26.1 points. • The Cavs are 2-10 on the road against West teams this season. • Cavs rookie Dion Waiters has recorded at least 20 points 14 times this season.   • Cavs' Tristan Thompson has 19 double-doubles in his last 39 games.   • The Spurs are 9-1 versus East team at home this season.
