Dan Talintyre@@dantalintyreSenior Analyst IIMarch 24, 2013

Currently sitting on top of the Western Conference, San Antonio would look to consolidate its top spot when they took on the Houston Rockets Sunday night.

Yet, the Rockets too had big ambitions for their game against the conference leaders, with a playoff battle emerging between them and several other teams in the West. 

A win here over a top side like San Antonio could give them the confidence to make a strong run to close out the season, while a loss could only further increase the pressure on Houston—making this one a very important game indeed.

With no big-name players absent, and two potentially devastating offenses on hand, this Western Conference game was shaping as one of the top games this weekend. Let's take a look how the Rockets fared at home to the No. 1 seed Spurs.
