Spurs in December slump

December 21, 2012 18:23:57 UK

The San Antonio Spurs have lost four of their past five games to fall percentage points behind the Memphis Grizzlies in the Southwest Division.

Friday the Spurs will look to snap their slide when the New Orleans Hornets arrive at the AT & T Center for the first contest in a four-game home stand that also sees the visit of the Dallas Mavericks, Toronto Raptors and Houston Rockets.

Memphis hosts the Mavericks on Friday in a game that sees O.J. Mayo return to the FedEx Forum for the first time since signing for Dallas over the summer.

Maybe Mayo was thinking of that visit on Thursday when the former USC star was a terrible 3-of-14 from the field for just eight points in a defeat to the Miami Heat at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Out on the west coast both the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors continue their Pacific Division battle by hosting the Sacramento Kings and Charlotte Bobcats.

The Clippers have won 11 straight, but meet a Sacramento squad boosted by their win over the Warriors on Wednesday at the Sleep Train Arena.

Golden State continues their four-games in five days schedule with the arrival of a Charlotte side that the Warriors defeated back in North Carolina on the 10th of the month and then close out the brief home stand with the visit of the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday.

Steve Nash is likely to return from injury by Christmas for LA and not a moment too soon as the Lakers trail their fellow Staples Center brethren the Clippers by seven and a half games.

Meanwhile the defending champions the New York Knicks, 1001.00 to win this season's NBA Championship.
