The San Antonio Spurs, losers of eight of the last 10, will not have LaMarcus Aldridge, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard when they visit the Houston Rockets on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time).
The Spurs had one remarkable streak end on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time) as the team clinched its first losing road record since the 1996-97 season.

The Spurs, which faces the possibility of their playoff and 50-win season streaks come to an end, hopes that when Leonard's expected return on Thursday against the Pelicans can reverse the team's recent slide down the Western Conference standings.
