TV: FSOhio Radio: WAKR (1590 AM); WTAM (1100 AM), WHBC (1480 AM)

Spurs: Richard Jefferson (F): Tim Duncan (F); Antonio McDyess (C); Manu Ginobili (G); George Hill (G).
Cavs: Shaquille O'Neal (right thumb); Sebastian Telfair (ruptured groin) - OUT.
Spurs: Tony Parker (fractured fouth metacarpal) - OUT.
Officials: Mike Callahan, Mark Lindsay and Jason Phillips.
The Spurs come into tonight's game having won just 2-of-5 of their last games, including a massive implosion against the Los Angeles Lakers Wednesday where Tim Duncan - 2-of-11 shooting - was ineffective. They're in an unfamiliar spot fighting for playoff positioning while the Cavs can cruise.
That, however, would be mistake as the Los Angeles Lakers are just 3.5 games back of the Cavs for best record in the NBA. Additionally coach Mike Brown will still be working on on his playoff rotation. Look for Antawn Jamison to play a little more at the three spot as he works to find a lineup where J.J. Hickson can still get minutes after the inevitable return of center Shaquille O'Neal.
Parker remains out for the Spurs, but guard Manu Ginobili remains on a tear offensively.
