The San Antonio Spurs (33-11) will look to take the regular season-series from the New Orleans Hornets (14-27) tonight in San Antonio. This will be the two team's final meeting of the season with the Spurs up 2-1. In the last meeting, the Spurs lost 88-95 in New Orleans.  The Spurs will also welcome back guard Manu Ginobili who has been out of action for the past few games due to a hamstring injury. According to the Spurs, Manu will play limited minutes. However, Tim  Duncan (sore left knee) and Kawhi Leonard (left knee contusion) will be out of action tonight. The Spurs are coming off a 90-85 win over the Sixers in Philadelphia. Tim Duncan (24 points, 17 rebounds), Tony Parker (20 points, 8 assists), and Kawhi Leonard (16 points, 7 rebounds, 2 steals) led the team to the road win. The Hornets are coming off a 114-105 win over the Kings in New Orleans. Center Anthony Davis hurt his ankle in the win and is a game time decision. And as the Spurs look to win their 15th straight win at home, here are five things to watch for during the game: • San Antonio has limited the Hornets to 11 of 46 (23.9 percent) shooting from 3-point range this season.  • The Hornets are 1-16 when opponent scores 100 or more points. • Hornets' Greivis Vasquez is averaging in the last 13 games 16.8 points, 10.4 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game.   • The Hornets are 0-6 in games decided by 4-5 points.   • Hornets' Davis has averaged 18.7 points and 9.0 rebounds against the Spurs.
