What to know about Spurs

The Spurs emerged victorious Friday against the Utah Jazz, slipping past 104-102 as coach Gregg Popovich set the career winning mark. It was another big night for San Antonio point guard Dejounte Murray, who had 27 points, nine boards and five steals. Murray made his first NBA All-Star team this season and is averaging 20.7 points, 9.3 assists and 8.4 rebounds per game while leading the league in steals (2.1 spg).

However, despite Murray’s progress, Spurs had major problems defensively and on the glass. San Antonio ranks 25th in the NBA in points against per game (112.9) and 26th in defensive rebound percentage (75.1). The Spurs will need to tighten up in that regard if they are to chase the Pelicans for a spot in the Western Conference play-off tournament.

What you need to know about the Pacers

Speaking of close games: It was all tied 63-63 at halftime, but Indiana weren’t quite the match of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second half when they met on Tuesday. They fell 127-124 to the Cavaliers. A silver lining for the Pacers was the play of shooting guard Tyrese Haliburton, who had 25 points and nine assists.

Indiana didn’t have too many problems with the Spurs at home when the teams last met last November, as they won 131-118. However, the roster has changed significantly for the Pacers since that win early in the season. Domantas Sabonis and Caris LeVert are both gone and Haliburton and Buddy Hield are now the main scoring options.
