1) Splitter's back. 2) Baynes isn't a SF RT @tBone_SA: @Paul Garcia any idea what's going on with Baynes? seems Daye is getting his time

Paul Garcia

Deleted this tweet, you got it though RT @48MoH: There are TWO of them?! RT @Paul Garcia That's it. Pop's pulling Daye, in comes Daye soon.

Paul Garcia

Pop's pulling Daye, has Anderson waiting to check in.

Paul Garcia

Looks like Pop's going to let Austin Daye have another shot at the 3.

Dan McCarney

I didn't think it was terrible to bring Daye back on off chance he finally figured it out. Example 10,879 why I could never be an NBA GM.

Paul Garcia

Anderson has joined the Spurs' second unit in place of Daye.

Quixem Ramirez

Theory: The Spurs are a lot worse when Austin Daye is on the basketball court.

Paul Garcia

The Red Rocket drills the three and the Spurs lead 32-21. Meanwhile, Pop just chewed out Austin Daye for something.

Jeff McDonald

Austin Daye might be cut by halftime. I don't even know what he did, but Pop's on him again.

Joe Freeman

Popovich just screamed to Austin Daye: "Pull your head out of your *%&.!"

Jeff McDonald

Pop suggests, loudly, to Austin Daye he might want to remove his head from a place his head never should have been in the first place.

Quixem Ramirez

Pop throws in Belinelli, Ginobili, Daye, Bonner and Splitter in the five minute mark. A full lineup change.

Paul Garcia

Pop coming with mass sub: Manu, Bonner, Splitter, Daye, Marco

Paul Garcia

Spurs' starting lineup Friday: Cojo, Anderson, Daye, Ayres, Baynes. - Kidding, not really.

Paul Garcia

Austin Daye has never seen a shot he thinks he can't make.

Dan McCarney

Jeff Ayres has 11 points. Austin Daye has 10. Kyle Anderson has 7. Draw your own conclusions.

Jeff McDonald

Someone at ESPN earned a nice bonus for the decision to pull the everloving ripcord on attempting to broadcast this Daye-Smith Showdown.

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 56, Knicks 52. SA took 2Q 27-26. Daye 10 points, Diaw/Belinelli 9 each, Green 8. SA 4/9 from three.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead NYK 56-52 at half. Austin Daye and Jason Smith tied for game-high with 10 points, like it's October or something.

Dan McCarney

Halftime: Spurs 56, New York 52. Austin Daye leads Spurs with 10 points, Belinelli and Diaw with 9.

Paul Garcia

And Daye is the game's first double-digit scorer with 10 points. Spurs' lead has risen to 7.

Jeff McDonald

Then Amare got his pocket picked by Austin Daye. Not sure which play is more embarrassing.

Dan McCarney

And now Daye has 10, more than anybody else in this game of professional NBA basketball.

Dan McCarney

Summing up tonight's game so far: Austin Daye tied for game-high honors with 8 points.

Paul Garcia

Austin Daye currently leads the Spurs in scoring with 8 points. Daye just hit a mid-range shot out of the timeout.

Paul Garcia

Danny Green and Daye both have 6 points after one, Hardaway Jr. with 8 points for NYK. SA shooting 55%, NYK 63%.

Paul Garcia

Back-to-back Austin Daye corner 3-pointers for the Spurs as SA takes a 29-26 first quarter lead. Only five turnovers b/w both teams.

Paul Garcia

Austin Daye does what he does best, shoot 3-pointers. Daye now 1/2 from distance, tied game at 24.

Paul Garcia

Now Boris nails a three, Knicks' lead trimmed to two. Austin Daye's on his way in.

Paul Garcia

Unfortunatley, very much true. RT @MichaelErlerSBN: @Paul Garcia Austin Daye can get up that many in a half.

David Thorpe

10.Pick a player you are surprised is still in the NBA. My choice is Austin Daye. I think you'll have a tough time picking a bigger surprise

Quixem Ramirez

Austin Daye passed up an open 3-pointer to find a contested Belinelli in the corner. The magic of Pop.

Paul Garcia

Much of Spurs' bench through 16 games has been Joseph, Manu, Belinelli, Baynes and Daye/Bonner.

Jeff McDonald

Correction: Here comes Austin Daye. Now the bench is cleared.

Dan McCarney

Pop giving Daye a good earful as he sits after that TO. Did not seem particularly excited to hear what the head coach had to say.

Quixem Ramirez

Austin Daye averages one bad play every 2.2 possessions.

Dan McCarney

To say Alan Anderson just beat Austin Daye off the dribble does not seem adequate. Daye's uniform almost burst into flames.

Quixem Ramirez

Yes. Ask for a puppy or something. RT @poundingtherock: I just want Austin Daye to succeed. Is that too much?

Dan McCarney

Ha, Teletovic and Daye just made 3s against each other. Both looked at the bench like, who the $*%! is this guy?

Jeff McDonald

Pop pleased with Austin Daye's 11 rebounder. Said they want him to be complete player not just reliant on hitting 3s.

Paul Garcia

With Austin Daye's double-double of 10 points and 10 boards, Spurs now have five players in double-figures scoring. SA over 100 points.

Jeff McDonald

Austin Daye up to 10 and 10. He's basically Tim Duncan.

Jeff McDonald

For those wondering (and you know you were) Austin Daye's career rebounding high is 17.

Jeff McDonald

Austin Daye still tied for game-high with 10 rebounds. He has been active.

Jeff McDonald

I don't want to alarm anyone, but this game's leading rebounder is Austin Daye (4). Which way to the fallout shelter?

Dan McCarney

Combined to go 38.4 percent last year. Swap out Mills, Belinelli for Joseph, Daye in the process, that's how you get major offensive slump.

Mike Richman

It's amazing that Austin Daye is on the Spurs roster. More amazing that he's contributing meaningful minutes.

Dan McCarney

Daye drills kick-out 3. Eat it, McCarney.
