Who We Like: San Antonio has dominated the Nets for years and are mostly healthy right now if Leonard and Gasol both play. Leonard is obviously the more vital of the two and he looks good to go, most likely being pegged for 28-32 minutes. The Spurs have alternated wins and losses in their last 10 games and after a 102-99 loss at the Hawks with Leonard out, expect them to bounce back in a big way here. San Antonio defeated Brooklyn 109-97 on its home floor back on Dec. 26.
