The San Antonio Spurs and the Cleveland Cavaliers will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Quicken Loans Arena.

ABOUT THE SPURS (33-9): San Antonio is well-positioned to absorb the loss of Gasol thanks to the strong play of small forward Kawhi Leonard, who was announced as an All-Star starter when the team was announced on Thursday. The San Diego State product posted his fifth consecutive 30-point effort with 34 points in the win over the Nuggets and is averaging 33.4 points on 63.6 percent shooting in the last five contests. “Kawhi was super, but he’s getting paid to be super and he knows it, and he relishes the challenges and knows his responsibilities,” Popovich told reporters.

Cleveland was the only team with a pair of players voted to start the All-Star game, with Kyrie Irving earning the nod in the backcourt and superstar LeBron James among the three frontcourt players. Irving broke out of a shooting slump with 26 points on 10-of-20 shooting on Thursday while James added 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting, 15 assists and nine rebounds. “Obviously for me and (Irving), we want to try and do what we need to do to help our ball club win and lead those guys the right way,” James told reporters after the Cavaliers got a combined 13 3-pointers from role players Jones, Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye on Thursday, “but those guys were locked in and we needed it.”

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Cavaliers listed as 2½-point favorites versus the Spurs, while the game’s total is sitting at 211½.

The possibility that one or two of the stars on either roster won’t play shouldn’t diminish the excitement too much when they San Antonio Spurs visit the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday. Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love is dealing with back spasms while Spurs center Pau Gasol will be sidelined after suffering a fractured finger on Thursday.

Gasol was injured in warmups prior to Thursday’s 118-104 win over the Denver Nuggets and is out indefinitely after undergoing hand surgery on Friday. “It was pregame,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich told reporters. “He and Kyle Anderson got hooked up somehow or another in a layup line or just rebound, and broke the finger. … But he’s going to be out for a while.” Love’s injury in not expected to be long term, but he sat out the last two games after being limited in a loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday. Cleveland went to a smaller lineup with Love out on Thursday and started veteran shooting guard James Jones, who buried four 3-pointers in 20 minutes during a 118-103 triumph over the Phoenix Suns.

Cleveland won its last outing, a 118-103 result against the Suns on January 19. The Cavaliers covered in that game as a -11.5-point favorite, while the 221 combined points took the game OVER the total.

San Antonio was a 118-104 winner in its last match at home against the Nuggets. They covered the -13-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 222 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
