Spurs, Cavaliers looking for answers

In previous seasons, Tuesday night's game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Cleveland Cavaliers at the AT&T Center in San Antonio would have been one of the marquee contests of the NBA calendar, with the two teams among the short list of the best in the league and bragging rights between superstars on the line.

But the 2017-18 season has been different for the Spurs and the Cavaliers. Both teams are in third place in their respective conferences and -- because of injuries for San Antonio and a dead-legged and greying roster for Cleveland -- not in the discussion as teams that can win the league championship.

That doesn't mean that Tuesday's game will not be entertaining. After all, the Cavaliers still have arguably the best basketball player on the planet, LeBron James, and the Spurs feature LaMarcus Aldridge, who's had 20 double-doubles this season and been San Antonio's leading scorer in 36 of its 48 contests while taking the team's starring role in the absence of the injured Kawhi Leonard.
