Jeff McDonald

Splitter didn't play tonight because Pop didn't want to play him. Kawhi sat the fourth because Pop wanted to ride with CoJo.

Dan McCarney

On Splitter: "I kept him out." OK then...

Paul Garcia

Pop just said it was his decision not to play Splitter - didn't give a reason why.

Jeff McDonald

I don't think so. Just needs the time off, I think. RT @lguangmang: Where is Tiago? Is there any injuries?

Dan McCarney

Tiago Splitter still a DNP at halftime...

Jeff McDonald

Aron Baynes, not Tiago Splitter, will spell Duncan here in the 1Q.

Jeff McDonald

Important to note ----> RT @Dan McCarney. Pop said pregame he doesn't feel Splitter has gotten into same rhythm as seasons past.

Dan McCarney

Bonner starting again. Pop said pregame he doesn't feel Splitter has gotten into same rhythm as seasons past.

Paul Garcia

"I don't think Tiago's return to form yet," said Pop of the majority of the team getting healthy.

Jason Lloyd

Unfortunately, it's becoming painfully evident Bret Michaels can't sing anymore. He has lost his fastball. And his splitter

Dan McCarney

Splitter's putback puts the Spurs back in front 66-65. 14-3 run here for the home team.

Jeff McDonald

There's the lead, Splitter with a putback of Leonard miss.

Jeff McDonald

Jeez. I don't think it's permanent. MT @Ericb1980 it didn't work in 2011, they won a ring with Tiago starting.

Jeff McDonald

Not that I know of. RT @kiestaster Tiago out?

Charles F. Gardner

Same lineups as previous game for Bucks and Spurs tonight. Spurs continue with Matt Bonner in lineup and Tiago Splitter off bench.

Jeff McDonald

Splitter has had another forgettable game on offense, but he's chipped in big on the boards, with 11 rebounds.

Jeff McDonald

That is a name of a player on the team, yes. RT @timmyduncanfan Tiago?

Paul Garcia

Tiago finds Kawhi for the dunk, Kawhi has 16 points in 18 minutes. Kawhi 14 of SA 18 points in 2Q.

Dan McCarney

Vintage Splitter rim protection there. Strong, straight-up contest. They add up...

Sean Highkin

Bulls starters: Rose, Butler, Snell, Gibson, Gasol. Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter.

Aaron Falk

Spurs are big with Duncan & Splitter out there together & Gobert was one of the few bright spots in that first half (4 pts, 11 reb, 1 blk).

Enric Corbella

Paul Garcia

3Q: Spurs 66, Jazz 47. SA takes 3Q 23-20. Splitter 14 points, Kawhi 12, Duncan 11 points. Baynes 9 points.

Paul Garcia

Jazz are 3/4 in the paint to start the second half, Pop calls timeout as UTA cuts the Spurs’ lead to 14. Splitter has 14 points in 15 mins

Paul Garcia

Parker to Splitter in the paint. Spurs by 18, largest lead of the game.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi + Duncan + Splitter + Mills have 33 of the Spurs’ 43 first half points. UTA shot 2/14 from mid-range in 1st half.

Paul Garcia

Utah is on a 6-2 run, cut Spurs’ once 8-point lead down to 2. Earlier, Parker - Splitter - Duncan had a great passing sequence for a layup

Tony Jones

Jazz down 14-8 as Gobert enters for Kanter...Rudy will be on Splitter/Favors on Duncan

Paul Garcia

Parker and Splitter score in the paint, SA is now 4/6 from the paint, lead 12-5.

Tony Jones

Spurs starters: Duncan, Splitter, Leonard, Parker, Green

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. Jazz: Burke, Ingles, Hawyard, Favors, Kanter.

Jeff McDonald

Pop says Tiago Splitter will start next to Tim Duncan again tonight. Indicated this will be more or less standard frontcourt going forward.

Paul Garcia

Spurs' front court minutes per game through 41 games: Duncan: 31.0 mins Diaw 26.0 Splitter: 19.9 Bonner: 16.6 Baynes: 15.3 Ayres: 9.5

Jeff McDonald

Not a great turn of events for starting center Tiago Splitter, who just picked up his 5th foul with 3:32 left in the third quarter.

Mike Richman

Splitter picks up his 5th foul. Baynes comes in for him.

Jeff McDonald

That's a foul Splitter just can't commit with Portland in the bonus

Jeff McDonald

Tiago Splitter, who never brutalizes anyone, just brutalized Meyers Leonard.

Mike Richman

Meyers Leonard gets hit in the face by Tiago Splitter. Welcome back, Meyers.

Paul Garcia

Tiago inbounds the ball to Kawhi from 16 feet aand he drills the jumper. Kawhi with 4 of the Spurs' first 6 points.

Dan McCarney

Leonard's first bucket, just how you'd expect: 2 on 1 feed from Tiago Splitter.

Paul Garcia

Tiago posts and kicks out to Kawhi for three, it went out.

Mike Richman

#Spurs starters: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. #Blazers: Lillard, Matthews, Batum, Aldridge, Kaman

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Some Guy Named K Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. POR: Lillard, Matthews, Batum, Aldridge, Kaman.

Paul Garcia

That's weird, the game monitor has the Spurs' starting lineup from last season up: Parker, Green, Kawhi, Duncan, Splitter #KawhiBack

Paul Garcia

The Spurs' Defense in the last 10 games with Tiago Splitter on/off the floor. On: 97.8 PP/100 Off: 100.6 PP/100 projectspurs.com/2015-articles/…

Paul Garcia

Now Manu with the assist to Tiago for the layup. Spurs by 8 with 1:47 left.

Paul Garcia

Make it a 9-0 run for the Spurs' bench. SA now leading 17-11. Manu 4 points, Tiago 3, Patty 2 points. SA bench is 3/3 from mid-range.

Jeff McDonald

Pop gonna Pop. He started two games ago. RT @JesseGladsaget What's the deal on Splitter not starting?
