This is how Tim Duncan retires [Spurs training camp] Pop: "Where's Tim?" Parker: "I don't know" Splitter: "Tim?" Kawhi: "Oh" *scene*
People forget. If Spurs don't have Splitter to stick on Dirk, they might not get out of the first round last year.
There's no denying Spurs pnr D went to dog poo without Splitter. Big reason they lost to LAC, moreso than Parker injury.
The thing about Splitter: The Spurs were really only at their best when he was at his best. It's really uncanny the way that worked.
When Spurs finished 21-4, blowing people out, really thought they had a chance. Pop mentioned Splitter re-injury Apr 3 as huge turning point
Those five Spurs, with guaranteed contracts: Parker, Splitter, Diaw, Mills, Anderson.
Pop will begin 4th with Mills, Manu, Diaw, Splitter and Leonard; Clips have CP, Crawford, Jordan, Griffin, Barnes
Chris Webber called that Tiago Splitter finish a "Hulk Hogan move." This series is the best.
Save this tweet, cause you won't see it very often: MAN'S FINISH BY SPLITTER
Tiago and-1 opps?
Weird small ball lineup for Spurs right now - Mills, Beli, Green, Manu, Tiago
8-0 run for Los Spurs as Splitter completes finger roll without a defender within five feet.
Great passing set by SA. Green to Splitter, to Duncan for the open layup. Clips used the dribble hand-off to get Paul an open look.
Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. Clippers: Paul, Redick, Barnes, Griffin, Jordan. One more time.
Come July 1, only the following Spurs will still be under contract: Tony Parker, Boris Diaw, Patty Mills, Tiago Splitter, Kyle Anderson.
So basically, Paul is coming off a screen and downhill against a Duncan or Splitter or Diaw. No shot. More help comes, Paul throwing lobs.
Updated series shooting percentages: Ginobili, 34.2 Splitter, 33.3 Parker, 32.9 Green, 30.6 Meanwhile...Duncan, 56.8 (!!!)
If the Spurs lose this game it's because of those atrocious Splitter minutes to start the fourth with Duncan sitting on the bench.
Splitter has killed the Spurs these past few minutes.
Spurs back with two bigs. Boris (4 fouls) checks in, Duncan will come in for Splitter.
Pop pulls Manu, will go with a Parker, Mills, Green, Tiago, Kawhi lineup out of the timeout. Redick back in.
