San Antonio Spurs hit the road for a preseason match-up against fellow Western Conference rivals Houston Rockets at Toyota Center, still looking for their first win before the start of the 2019-20 NBA regular season.
But the match-ups before the start of the regular season allows the head-coaches to test the bench strength. Players from the 2nd unit can move ahead in the pecking order with a consistent showing in the practice games.
