The New Orleans Pelicans make their last regular-season stop in San Antonio this Saturday in the final home game before the Spurs’ annual rodeo road trip. This season’s eight-game gauntlet includes marquee matchups against the reloaded Warriors in Oakland, and a rematch with Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors in Toronto.

Traditionally an elite road team in the Popovich era, the Spurs have stumbled away from home in recent campaigns. A strong showing in opposing arenas over the next month would boost San Antonio’s woeful road record and help build momentum after the All-Star break.



Despite a left index finger sprain that recently sidelined Anthony Davis, the Spurs must avoid overlooking the scrappy Pelicans. Even without Davis, New Orleans is capable of a balanced attack that can quickly overwhelm unsuspecting opponents.

$17-$875, Sat Feb. 2, 7:30pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy., (210) 444-5000, attcenter.com.
