When the San Antonio Spurs play the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night, they will take the court knowing that their veteran stars will be rested and ready to perform.

Why San Antonio Will Win

The high-stakes poker games that take place on a nightly basis in the NBA demand a certain degree of resourcefulness, and the Spurs are probably as resourceful as any team in the league other than the Boston Celtics, who have gone 7-1 in their first eight games without Rajon Rondo. Only San Antonio can seem to match Boston's propensity for finding ways to win with patchwork lineups and adjusted floor combinations.

It's really rather remarkable what San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich has managed to do the past two seasons. He has taken an aging core of increasingly brittle stars and surrounded them with role players who work so seamlessly together. Popovich has taken rookies and old veterans and molded them into an effective group that plays to its strengths and gives the trio of Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Manu Ginobili a lot of rest on the bench. One will recall that on Thursday, Nov. 29, Popovich had four of his starters stay in San Antonio to rest at the end of a very long road trip. Those starters did not play against the Miami Heat, drawing a reprimand from NBA Commissioner David Stern.

This past Monday, the Spurs and Popovich did something similar. Parker could have played, but he was benched by Popovich so that he could rest. The Spurs did not play with Parker, Duncan, or Ginobili, and yet they thrashed a pretty good Chicago team on the road by 14 points, 103-89. San Antonio simply finds a way to win under adverse circumstances, but in this game, the Spurs- coming off the All-Star break – should be fresh. They should thump Sacramento, no matter how you slice it.

Why Sacramento Will Win

People in the football betting world who don't pay close attention to NBA basketball could probably still tell you that the calculus of this game might actually give Sacramento a good chance to win, even though the quality of the Kings is nowhere close to the level of the Spurs. One thing to appreciate about San Antonio is that it won 11 of 12 games in a stretch just before the arrival of the All-Star break. Veteran athletes depend on the rhythm of playing every day or every other day. This six-day break might very well have allowed the Spurs' older stars to rest their creaking bones and ever more fragile bodies, but the time off could very well disrupt San Antonio's groove, throwing a monkey wrench into the workings of a team that has been so dialed in at both ends of the floor. Sacramento is rested as well, but the Kings might look at this game as a new start. It just might get them to steal this contest from the Spurs.

Who Will Win

This is going to be a close game, but San Antonio's depth is going to give the Spurs enough scoring options in the fourth quarter. San Antonio and Popovich are not to be doubted… not in light of the amazing things they're doing (again) this season.
