8/9/2020*SAN ANTONIO              
SAN ANTONIO: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost 4-3 to Denver in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Gregg Popovich (24th season, 1245-575).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Dejounte Murray (missed last season with knee injury), G Bryn Forbes (11.8 ppg), G DeMar DeRozan (21.2), F LaMarcus Aldridge (21.3), C Jakob Poeltl (5.5).
KEY ADDITIONS: F DeMarre Carroll, F Trey Lyles, G/F Keldon Johnson, F Luka Samanic
PLAYERS TO WATCH: DeRozan spent most of last season processing a trade that unexpectedly sent him to the Spurs and away from the Toronto Raptors, the franchise he pledged his devotion to ' then watched them win a title. Murray's injury also forced DeRozan to become the team's main distributor for the first time in his career. DeRozan set a career high with 6.2 assists per game but also had his second-lowest scoring average in six seasons. Murray is back and spent the offseason sending video of specific plays to show the 30-year-old guard how he could help him score more easily.
OUTLOOK: The Spurs continue to get younger and faster while trying to maintain their veteran presence and corporate knowledge. The latter received a huge boost with the addition of Hall of Famer Tim Duncan as an assistant coach. Duncan's knowledge of the Spurs' system, work ethic and camaraderie should help the team's development as it attempts to an establish an identity separate from but similar to the Big Three era spearheaded by Duncan that led to five NBA championships. Murray's return along with the return of White, expected emergence of Lonnie Walker IV and addition of Carroll should make the Spurs among the best wing defenses in the league.
NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fifth season with Pelicans, 145-183; 17th season overall, 480-553).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Lonzo Ball (9.9 ppg), G Jrue Holiday (21.2), F Brandon Ingram (18.3), F Zion Williamson (rookie), C Derrick Favors (11.8).
KEY LOSSES: F Anthony Davis, F Julius Randle, G Elfrid Payton.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Williamson, F Ingram, G Ball, C Favors, G J.J. Redick, G Nickeil Alexander-Walker, C Jaxson Hayes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Williamson was the No. 1 overall pick in last summer's NBA draft, was a highlight machine at Duke and has looked fearless in his first NBA preseason ' taking the ball to the hoop against the best interior defenders in the league and scoring more than 20 points in multiple games. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound rookie is a social media phenomenon and filling arenas everywhere he goes. But the additions of Ball and Redick will be important to New Orleans as well.
OUTLOOK: Of the Pelicans' four new starters brought in by Griffin, one was picked No. 1 overall this summer and two Ingram and Ball were picked second overall within the previous three years by the Lakers before being packaged with Josh Hart and draft picks in a trade sending Davis to Los Angeles. Combined with savvy veterans like Holiday and Favors, not to mention Redick off the bench, there are high hopes in New Orleans that the Pelicans are trending upward and might even contend for a playoff spot this season. The Pelicans also expect 2019 first-round picks Alexander-Walker and Hayes to contribute this season.
Spurs, Pelicans looking to build momentum

The San Antonio Spurs are in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race.

They can strengthen their position and weaken New Orleans' plight when they play the Pelicans on Sunday near Orlando.

San Antonio (30-38) is in 10th place, a half-game ahead of the Pelicans (30-39), who defeated Washington, 118-107 on Friday night.

The Spurs, who are shooting for an NBA-record 23rd consecutive playoff appearance, improved to 3-2 during the restart when they beat a short-handed Utah team 119-111 on Friday. Derrick White scored 24 points and Jakob Poeltl had 19 points and 10 rebounds.

"I don't think we were as sharp as we could be or as we have been in the past," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich told the Expressnews.com. "That's a typical reaction when the other team doesn't have all its guys."

The Jazz played without four starters, including All-Stars Donovan Mitchell (left peroneal strain) and Rudy Gobert (rest). Gobert's absence inside provided an opportunity that Poeltl took advantage of.

"It was a good opportunity for me because they try to stay locked up on the shooters outside so there was a little bit more room in the paint for me," Poeltl said. "So I tried to be a little more aggressive with it and take my chances."

Poeltl had scored a total of just 12 points in San Antonio's three previous games, the last two of which were losses.

"We wanted to show we could get better results than the last couple games," Poeltl said. "It didn't matter if they were coming in with their full starting lineup or their second unit or whoever was out there."

New Orleans played without Zion Williamson in its victory over the Wizards. He has been playing limited minutes (conditioning) and was given the night off in the second end of a back-to-back after scoring 24 points in a 140-125 loss to Sacramento on Thursday.

The Pelicans got a balanced effort to make up for Williamson's absence as seven Pelicans scored in double figures against Washington.

Jrue Holiday had 28 points, Brandon Ingram added 17, JJ Redick started in Williamson's place and had 15, Frank Jackson had 13, Derrick Favors contributed 12 points and 10 rebounds and Nicolo Melli and Josh Hart added 10 points each.

New Orleans, which allowed a 49-point first quarter and a 40-point third quarter against Sacramento, gave up 32 to the Wizards in the first quarter, but surrendered just 75 in the final three quarters.

"We talked about it after the first quarter, that we had to hold them under 30 every quarter after that," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "I thought we did a really good job of being solid defensively.

"We did a much, much better job of keeping the ball out of the paint, and then we did a much better job of challenging shots. Overall, I thought we were much, much better defensively. I thought we were very aggressive and good."

Washington shot just 34 percent (16-of-47) in the second half, including 21.4 percent (3-of-14) on 3-pointers.

"We had to win this game," Melli said. "It was just a matter of energy, I think. We know how to play defense together. We just need to go back and play with a lot of energy. That's what we did in the second half, and we saw the result."
