Spurs look to stay hot at home against new-look Bulls

Dec 26, 2007 - 12:57 PM Chicago (9-16) at San Antonio (19-7) 8:30 pm EST

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) - The San Antonio Spurs have been nearly unbeatable at home, winning 14 of their first 15 games at the AT&T Center.

On Wednesday, the Spurs host a Chicago Bulls team playing in its first game since Monday's firing of coach Scott Skiles.

Defending NBA champion San Antonio has actually struggled lately, winning just two of its last six games after a 17-3 start. The Spurs' 99-90 home victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday snapped a two-game losing streak as Tim Duncan had 34 points and a season-high 18 rebounds.

Tony Parker had 18 points in his first game back since missing four with a sprained left ankle, but top San Antonio reserve Manu Ginobili left in the first quarter with a sprained left index finger.

Despite high expectations, Chicago has one of the worst records in the Eastern Conference, leading to Skiles demise.

The Bulls have lost three of their last four games and were booed frequently during their most recent home game. Assistant Pete Myers will take the helm on an interim basis.

Chicago hasn't won a season series against the Spurs since the 1997-98 campaign.
