San Antonio heads into Philadelphia tonight looking for a win to keep pace with Dallas in the Southwest division, while the 76ers are just looking for win.

The Spurs are currently 31-21, just one game behind the Mavericks for the division lead. They are 6-4 in their last 10 games and have won their last two. If there is one thing that has plagued San Antonio this season is a lack of consistency, especially when playing on the road. While they are 19-10 at home, their road record is just 12-11. In their last game they did raise it over .500 with a 90-87 win over the Pacers. While Tim Duncan struggled from the field going just 4 for 23, Tony Parker helped pick up the slack by scoring a game high 28 points despite still not being 100% recovered from a previous hip injury. Duncan could not score but he did dominate the boards with 26 rebounds, 11 offensive. Manu Ginobili came off the bench to score 18 points in the winning effort. Through 52 games, Duncan leads the team averaging 19.1 points and 11 rebounds per game. Parker is averaging 17.2 points and 5.9 assists per game and Richard Jefferson is averaging 12.2 points.

The 76ers have had trouble handling success this season as it seems every time they win a few games to finally build some momentum, they go out and lose even more games to end it. They are 20-33 on the year and 5-5 in their last 10. After winning a season high five games in a row they have lost their last two. Against the Heat on Tuesday night they fell behind by 11 at the half and were completely blown out 33-17 in the third on their way to a lopsided 78-105 lost. Having Allen Iverson back in the lineup after missing the last five games did little to help their cause as he ended the night with only four points. Thaddeus Young scored a game high 16 points off the bench and Samuel Dalembert added nine points and 10 rebounds for the 76ers lowlight reel. As bad as this team as looked at times this season, they seem to save their worst for the home town fans as they are just 9-17 in the unfriendly confines of the Wachovia Center. Through 53 games Andre Igoudala is basically a one man show as he leads in points per game with 17, rebounds with 6.9, and assists with 5.7.

If San Antonio has any hopes of doing anything in the very competitive Western Conference, they cannot afford to lose games like this no matter where it is played.
