After a brief win-one-lose-one stretch, the Spurs got back on track going 3-1 this week. In an underrated trade deadline move, San Antonio signed Stephen Jackson who, if he returns to form, could put the Spurs over the hump. Danny Green's been San Antonio's unsung hero of late with solid defense and a 21-point outburst in their win against Oklahoma City. With role players taking form and as healthy a backcourt the Spurs have had all year, things are looking bright in the Lone Star State.—Sean Evans
