It is never easy to see your team being hit with the injury bug as much as the San Antonio Spurs have been dealt with so far this season. Though we do not like it when it happens, this does bring out some good to the team. With injuries this season to Manu Ginobili, Kawhi Leonard and now the possible shutdown of Tony Parker until he reaches 100%, the second players are being called upon more and more and they are stepping up.
One player in particular is Patty Mills. Mills has been on a recent tear lately for San Antoino off of the bench. What can be seen is the hard work that he puts in when his number is called. Against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night, which started the second half of the Rodeo Road Trip, he led off the bench with a team high 25 points in 27 minutes.no comments
