The team opened their preseason with a six-point loss to Sacramento but then bounced back and defeated them by 20 at home. They also defeated the Denver Nuggets by 22 points before losing this past week to Orlando, 103-98. In that game, LaMarcus Aldridge had 16 points and four rebounds, while Dejounte Murray scored 15. Newcomer Rudy Gay scored 13 points off the bench and grabbed seven boards. Kawhi Leonard didn't play in that game. The Spurs' All-Star is still considered a question mark as far as being available to start in the team's regular-season opener.

For the Houston Rockets, it's been smooth sailing to a 4-0 record in the NBA preseason. The team opened with a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-97 before defeating visiting Shanghai Sharks by 62 points. From there, they beat the Knicks by 22 and the Memphis Grizzlies by 12.
