• The San Antonio Spurs are back in San Antonio for a much needed break from the Rodeo Road Trip:
“We need the break,” coach Gregg Popovich said. “A couple of those older-than-dirt guys need a rest. It’s good to have these couple of days.”
“For me, this break is huge. I was a little sore before the game. The Lakers game was tough for me, and then there was that last play, so I guess I was a little unlucky. But I’m happy. We played really well, and we have three days off, and it’s going to help heal wounds.” (Express News)
