Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Wednesday when the Houston Rockets and the San Antonio Spurs meet at AT&T Center. The battle will be for 5th game of the NBA Western Conference Semi-Finals.

ABOUT THE ROCKETS: Houston suffered a huge blow in Game 4 as backup center Nene suffered a torn left groin – officially termed a torn adductor – and will miss the rest of the playoffs. Nene and starter Clint Capela were giving Houston solid production in the middle and the Rockets will be forced to use power forwards Montrezl Harrell and Ryan Anderson at center — the latter being more of an outside shooter than an interior player. “Obviously I’m not a very conventional 5-man, but it also makes it difficult for the other team to figure out how to guard us with pick-and-pops or if I’m rolling to the basket or whatever it is,” Anderson told reporters. “Our ability to run, we have to take those opportunities to our advantage.”

The point guard situation is a huge issue for San Antonio after the season-ending quadriceps injury suffered by veteran Tony Parker in Game 2. Rookie Dejounte Murray started the past two games and averaged five points and 1.3 assists while backup Patty Mills averaged 12.5 points and 3.5 assists but made just 8-of-21 field-goal attempts. Star small forward Kawhi Leonard scored just 16 points in Game 4 after averaging 27 over the first three games while power forward LaMarcus Aldridge is enduring a mostly quiet series by averaging 15.3 points and 6.5 rebounds.

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Spurs listed as 5½-point favorites versus the Rockets, while the game’s total is sitting at 214.

The San Antonio Spurs have seen the Houston Rockets turn the Western Conference semifinals into a best-of-3 series and they are feeling the urgency heading into Tuesday’s Game 5. Host San Antonio will need to ratchet up the intensity after Houston operated at will while evening the series at two wins apiece on Sunday night.

The third-seeded Rockets drained 19 3-pointers in the 125-104 victory and they carved up the Spurs for 68 second-half points in the impressive showing. “This is a big stage they did it on,” Houston coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters. “We have a lot of work left, but there’s no reason why we can’t go down to San Antonio and repeat the performance.” The second-seeded Spurs will be attempting to turn the page as Sunday’s loss certainly was a mighty blow and opened the door for the Rockets. “Game 5 is a Game 7,” Ginobili told reporters. “We had a great opportunity to go back to San Antonio 3-1 and in a better situation. Now it’s 2-2. Game 7 – We’ve really got to be knowing that every possession is a game-winning possession.”
