NBA FREE PICK: Take San Antonio.  According to the latest NBA trends, the Spurs are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Southwest, 19-5-3 ATS in their last 27 games following a ATS win, 11-3-2 ATS in their last 16 Wednesday games.The San Antonio Spurs are largely the same team that won the most games in the NBA over the last two seasons. They might miss Manu Ginobili (back) for this game, but the Hornets' starting guard Eric Gordon (knee) is questionable after missing the entire preseason and will come off the bench if he plays at all. San Antonio appeared to peak last season, after posting a 20-game winning streak and led 2-0 over Oklahoma City in the Western Conference finals before falling apart. Tim Duncan, who averaged 15.9 points and 9.0 rebounds, will take on top overall draft pick Anthony Davis, a younger but much thinner version of Duncan. The problem for New Orleans is their offense, which averaged just 89.6 points per game. First-round pick Austin Rivers may help down the road, but he and starter Greivis Vasquez will have a tough time with Tony Parker, who still is one of the fastest guards in the league. The Hornets might eventually be a team of the future, but the Spurs are still the team of the present. They have too many weapons with Stephen Jackson, Gary Neal, Matt Bonner and Kahwi Leonard, who will be the difference with their perimeter shooting.
