The move to replace Tony Parker with Dejounte Murray in the starting lineup has paid dividends. All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge continues to lead the team in the absence of star Kawhi Leonard.
Meanwhile the combination of elder statesmen (Manu Ginobili/Tony Parker) and youngsters (Murray/Bryn Forbes/Davis Bertans) is working in concert to maintain a hold on the third seed in the west.
Kawhi Leonard remains out dealing with tendinopathy in his right quadriceps with no timeline for return. Rudy Gay is expected to remain out until the end of February as he deals with retrocalcaneal bursitis in his right heel.
