Yung feeling na Popovich with Almazan, Uyloan, Belga, Baynes, & Diaw can clinch the 8th seed in the West.

Dan McCarney

How 'bout this lineup to start the 4th: Diaw, Bonner, BAYNES, Joseph, Daye.

Quixem Ramirez

Minutes in last two games: Green 96, Duncan 92, Joseph 81, Belinelli 75, Ginobili 71, Diaw 67. Tomorrow is going to be very interesting.

Quixem Ramirez

Spurs bench platoon couldn’t hold the double-digit lead. Pop responds with Duncan, Diaw, Green and Joseph.

Paul Garcia

Danny Green for three. Boris initially had Cojo on the cut, but he didn't have good position, so he kicked it out and Diaw fed Green.

Paul Garcia

Evidence Tim Duncan's playing tonight - Pop says he'll start alongside Boris Diaw in the front court.

No mention of Duncan, Manu, Diaw or Green on injury report. But still a lot of time before tip-off, or Pop could dress them & not play them.
