It will also help the Spurs get a little bit healthier, like Parker. His health has been questionable since he came back from his shin injury which looks like it's hindered him from playing at the high level he was at early on in the season. This rest will benefit the Spurs and have them look at the series in a "one game at a time" fashion, especially remembering the series against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the playoffs last year and how San Antonio burned out after being up 2-0 in the series.
Tiago is just suck. He 's soft. Pop says TP is healthy. I don't believe it. He 's not himself. He missed very easy lay up/floating shot yesterday he normally makes.
TD really needs the brief respite. 36 minutes of grind is no joke specially with limited support from Splitter and the absence of Diaw. Hope he and T-Mac will suit up soon. Every help is needed. I still think TP and Manu were playing possum. It's a long way home Spurs. The battle just started. GO SPURS GO!
