Speights starting to get the Tiago Splitter treatment a la 2013 NBA Finals (whose turn is it to block him or burn him?) -CR

Kurt Helin

At some point Tiago Splitter needs to just take a shot in the paint.

Tiago con esa barba es una mezcla brasileña de Ivan Drago y el hombre de Camel! Ahora si, Red Mamba on court!

Splitter playing in second quarter seems pretty significant

Splitter in to start the 2Q, matched up on Blake.

Splitter returns late in the 1Q, so that's already a change from Game 1.

I think I agree with this. Parker needs to be in ballpark with CP. Splitter is so, so important & ppl don't realize. twitter.com/romsho/status/…

Melissa Rohlin

Spurs' Tony Parker, Tiago Splitter healthy enough to play in Game 2 via @Brad Turner latimes.com/sports/clipper…

Bill Simmons

Pretty much the perfect Clips home game. Had everything. Spurs got killed by Baynes/Green. Splitter barely played. Parker looked blah.

Mike Monroe

Splitter has that gynormous wrap back on his right calf ... thinking that was plan for tonight: 4-5 min. and then done for each half

Brad Turner

Splitter starts second half for Spurs

Brad Turner

Splitter heads back to locker room before 1st half is over. Wonder if right calf is bothering him

Splitter started, played five minutes in first quarter. Hasn't been back in game since.

Mike Monroe

Not going to speculate on Tiago Splitter until we get some word from #Spurs about his mummified right calf

Mike Monroe

Tiago's right calf is wrapped up like a mummy. He might not be coming back.

Tiago Splitter in starting lineup for Spurs against Clippers. Splitter had been out last 6 games with right calf injury

Tiago Splitter is starting for the Spurs, he'll get a lot of time on Blake Griffin.

Dan Woike

Splitter starting for San Antonio -- either means he's healthy or he'll foul DeAndre Jordan six times in the first minute

Spurs: Parker, Green, Duncan, Leonard, Splitter. Clippers: Paul, Redick, Barnes, Griffin, Jordan.

Jeff McDonald

Shocker part 2: Splitter starting

Brad Turner

Popovich said Tiago Splitter is available to play vs Clippers tonight. Pop wouldn't say if Splitter would start or even play.#NBAplayoffs

Ramona Shelburne

Pop says Tiago Splitter is available tonight vs the Clippers. When @Mike Monroe asked if he'd start, he joked, "Now you're pushing it"

Jeff McDonald

Follow-up question from our man: "Will Splitter start?" Pop: "Don't push it, Mikey."

Kurt Helin

Popovich say Tiago Splitter is available to play. He would be a key defender on Blake Griffin.
