#Spurs notebook: Off the bike at last, Belinelli’s times increase; incentives for Mills, Diaw expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a… via @mySA

Candace Buckner

Either Diaw or Scola could've been called for a foul on that last attempt for a rebound

Candace Buckner

Loose ball foul on Diaw will give Luis Scola two FTs with 6.9 seconds remaining in half

Vincent Goodwill

Man, Hedo Turkoglu looks like Boris Diaw now...if Boris lost 10 pounds

Dan McCarney

Probably half of Diaw's baskets get an audible ooooh from the crowd. A theory offered on press row: "They can't believe how fat he is."

Jeff McDonald

Other odds and ends from pregame: Danny Green back in starting lineup, Diaw will start as well, Bonner is available and Cory Joseph is not.

Paul Garcia

Spurs' starters from Messina: Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Tim Duncan, Boris Diaw.

Boris Diaw went to a D-League game. #picture bit.ly/11M0cHL

Devin Kharpertian

Nets playing with Mirza at center against Diaw at center.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets 1 for their last 10. Point Duncan hits Diaw for a banker. Spurs by 10.

Tim Bontemps

It says a lot about the Spurs that during starting lineup intros Tim Duncan is announced first and Boris Diaw is announced last night.

Jeff McDonald

Boris Diaw crowing postgame about being a "point-center." Thinks he invented the position. Magic might have something to say there.

Mike Monroe

Why is @Boris Diaw still on floor for #Spurs, up 25 on #Wolves? Because Popovich knows he needs court time to get in game shape

Paul Garcia

With the long two, Diaw is the Spurs' fourth SA player in double figures. 11 points for Diaw.

Paul Garcia

Pop going back to Diaw's days with the Atlanta Hawks, when Diaw used to play point guard.

Paul Garcia

Boris Diaw starts as the point guard for the 4th. Anderson, Ayres in too.

Jeff McDonald

Boris Diaw is your Spurs point guard to start the fourth quarter, ladies and gentlemen.

Paul Garcia

A Gorgui Dieng-Anthony Bennett high-low play is the opposite of a Boris Diaw-Tim Duncan high-low play. SA 82-60 in 3Q.

Jon Krawczynski

Muhammad (1-7, 1 reb) finding the going against Diaw, Leonard slightly tougher than Travis Wear.

Dan McCarney

Parker, Diaw also have an assist apiece, meaning they had a hand in 27 of SA's 29 points in the first quarter.

Mike Monroe

French #Spurs with 22 of 29 pts. in 1st quarter, @Tony Parker 13, @Boris Diaw 9; SAS 29, MIN 26

Jon Krawczynski

#Spurs 29, #TWolves 26 after 1. Parker with 13, Diaw with 9. Mo Williams with 9 and Bennett with 6 for Wolves

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 29, Wolves 26. Parker 13 points, Diaw 9. Mow Williams 9 points, 3 assists. SA 16 points in paint, but 6 turnovers.

Dan McCarney

Parker (13), Diaw (nine) combined for 22 of the Spurs' 29 first-quarter points, lead the savage Timberwolves by three.

Paul Garcia

Mo Williams is 3/4 shooting with 7 points. Parker, Diaw with 18 of Spurs' 22 points. 14 points in paint for SA.

Dan McCarney

Diaw and Parker have accounted for all 17 of the Spurs points -- 15 as scorers, plus Diaw's assist to Leonard.

Jerry Zgoda

Spurs are starting Kawhi, Duncan, Diaw, Parker, Green vs. Wolves' Mo, Brewer, Wiggins, Dieng and Shabazz

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Diaw. Wolves: Mo Williams, Brewer, Wiggins, Muhammad, Dieng.

Jeff McDonald

Boris Diaw, fresh off a 39-minute stint in Cleveland, will earn his second straight start at "center" tonight for the Spurs.

Jeff McDonald

Boris Diaw's 39 minutes last night were the most he has logged in a game since joining the Spurs.

Manu Ginobili

Since @TiagoSplitter and @Patrick Mills are not with us, with @Boris Diaw we had to work double. Great effort Bobo! http://t.co/bba3P0IgaQ

Paul Garcia

Spurs' usual closing lineup of Parker, Manu, Kawhi, Duncan & Diaw is outscoring teams by 21.4 points per 100 possessions in 45 mins so far.

Arnaud Lecomte

Le génie de la passe de Boris Diaw sera un jour classé au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO

Jeff McDonald

No truth to the rumor Spurs docs had to hook Boris Diaw to a gravy IV after his 40-minute night.

Jeff McDonald

Boris Diaw played nearly 40 minutes tonight. Yipes.

Royce Young

I keep picturing Tony Parker as the point guard there, passing to Boris Diaw, who takes one dribble and bounce-passes to Duncan for a dunk.

Dan McCarney

Great lines for Duncan, Diaw. The grandmaster: 19/10/3/2/2. Bobo: 19/6/7/3/1. Parker, Ginobili combine to go 9 for 10 at line down stretch.

TJ Manotoc

Spurs hang on to beat Cavs 92 - 90. Duncan & Diaw with 19 points each. Lebron James only 15 pts on 6-17 FG and turnover on final possession

Ethan J. Skolnick

Ginobili misses 2nd free throw, LeBron loses ball, Spurs win 92-90. Varejao leads w/ 23. Duncan & Diaw 19 apiece. LeBron 15/6/9. Cavs 5-5.

Jimmy Spencer

Sneaky Manu sealing to a wide open middle without any help from Kevin Love. Harris’s fault though … Love had to stay on Diaw.

Dan McCarney

Just iso, iso, iso for the Spurs. And this is their starting lineup, with Diaw.

Brendan Bowers

Spurs frontline of Duncan, Leonard and Diaw thru 3rd quarter: 42 points, 19 rebs, 13 assists. Need to slow them down up front in 4th #Cavs

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead Cleveland 72-69 heading to 4Q. Boris Diaw triple-double watch is on: 17 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds so far.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spurs, behind their depleted bench, lead 72-69 after three. DIaw 17/6/7. LeBron w/ 13 & 8 assists in 26 minutes. Spurs at 50.8%.

Julian Mozo

#NBA La lección de Boris. Diaw lleva 17 pts, 6 rebotes, 7 asistencias, 3 robos y 1 tapa. San Antonio gana en Cleveland: 72-69 tras 3 cuartos

Dave McMenamin

Boris Diaw is out-LeBroning LeBron tonight. He has 17 pts, 7 ast, 6 reb on 8-for-11 shooting. James has 13 pts, 8 ast, 2 reb on 5-for-13

Tony Jones

Boris Diaw out here acting a fool right now
