Paul Garcia

Just saw the box score from last night, turns out Danny Green & Tiago Splitter also got the night off - deserved. Will re-watch game later.

Kris Willis

No Parker, Duncan, Leonard, Ginobli, Green or Splitter for the Spurs

Julian Mozo

#NBA Clínica de basquet colectivo de los Spurs: 77-75 a Dallas tras 3 cuartos sin Parker, Duncan, Manu, Leonard, Green, Mills y Tiago.

Jeff McDonald

Green and Splitter are active and in uniform. Meaning they could play in some sort of emergency. Appears no plans to do so absent that.

Dan McCarney

If Green, Splitter don't play at some point tonight, that's basically 7 of the top 8 players. Yet, up 12 early in 2nd

Mike Monroe

Playing with 8 vs. #Spurs lead #Mavs 25-21 after 1 quarter in Dallas; Belinelli with 8 ... Green, Splitter suited up but resting on bench

Jeff McDonald

Recapping: Spurs left five of their best players back in SA. Danny Green and Tiago Splitter combine for zero 1Q minutes. Spurs lead 25-21.

Paul Garcia

5:52 left in the 4Q, Spurs lead 85-84. Blazers with the 15-11 scoring edge. Splitter's got 14 points, 5 boards and 2 dimes in 24 mins.

Paul Garcia

Anderon - Splitter PnR, Splitter missed the hook, but then got the board anf made the further attempt.

Dan McCarney

BAYNES has been good in his stead, but there's just no duplicating Splitter's D and pick-and-rolls like that. Great catch, attack to draw FT

Jeff McDonald

Manu + Splitter vs. Kaman. Get ready for Pick-and-roll-apalooza.

Paul Garcia

Mass sub coming in for Spurs: Manu, Daye, Marco, Splitter, Bonner

Paul Garcia

Green/Splitter/Duncan with 20 of Spurs' 28 points in 3Q. Aldridge had 14 of Portland's 25 in the 3Q.

Paul Garcia

1) Splitter's back. 2) Baynes isn't a SF RT @tBone_SA: @Paul Garcia any idea what's going on with Baynes? seems Daye is getting his time

Paul Garcia

Splitter (10 points) joins Green (17 points) and Duncan (16 points) in double-digits scoring for SA.

Dan McCarney

Mmmmm, sexy bounce pass from Ginobili. Inch-perfect through a crowd to Splitter cutting rimward, and he's fouled.

Dan McCarney

Do we count that as a putback dunk for Splitter? That looked like a putback dunk.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs forced a traveling violation on defense and it looked like Pop was yelling at Splitter or Beli for not rotating.

Quixem Ramirez

Pop throws in Belinelli, Ginobili, Daye, Bonner and Splitter in the five minute mark. A full lineup change.

Paul Garcia

Pop coming with mass sub: Manu, Bonner, Splitter, Daye, Marco

Mike Monroe

#Spurs notebook from @Jeff McDonald: Weary woes; free throw woes; Splitter update expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a… via @mySA

Paul Garcia

Dead possession, so Pop brings back Manu and Tiago.

Paul Garcia

Tiago Splitter re-enters the game.

Paul Garcia

Splitter draws his 5th foul of the game, Diaw and Manu re-enter for Joseph/Splitter.

Paul Garcia

Cory, Marco, Tiago, Duncan, Green to start the second overtime for the Spurs.

Paul Garcia

Diaw checks back in for Splitter. Marco, Green, Manu, Duncan also on the floor.

Dan McCarney

Tiago only has 4/4, but he's had a big impact on this comeback.

Paul Garcia

Manu once more. Now he finds Tiago off the roll. 3 point game.

Paul Garcia

4:49 left in 3Q, Pop's bringing in a Splitter/Diaw frontcourt. Conley gives Memphis the 17 point lead.

Paul Garcia

Manu to Diaw, Diaw Tiago contested made layup. Spurs cut Grizzlies lead to 6 again. SA shooting 33%, MEM 69%.

Paul Garcia

Tiago Splitter is about to check in.

Jeff McDonald

List of Spurs players who missed double-digit games last year: Parker, Ginobili, Leonard, Green, Splitter. This is nothing new.

Jason Quick

Blazers beat Spurs 108-95 to move to 19-6. Spurs (17-8) played without Parker, Duncan, Ginobili and Splitter. Aldridge with 23 and 14.

Kerry Eggers

Looks like Duncan, Parker, Ginobili and Splitter will be held out by Spurs tonight vs. @Portland Trail Blazers. Bad deal for fans who paid top dollar

Jeff Caplan

At Portland tonight, #Spurs will be without Tim, Tony, Tiago, Manu and, of course, Patty. foxsports.com/southwest/stor…

Julian Mozo

Popovich guarda hoy, en Portland, al Big 3 (Manu-Duncan-Parker) y a dos obreros más, Tiago y Mills. Polémica en toda la #NBA y San Antonio.

Andres Pando

Esta noche no juega @Manu Ginobili contra Portland (espalda). Tampoco Duncan, Parker, Splitter y Mills. Quizás los Spurs ganan igual. #NBA

Dan McCarney

Mass absences in Portland: Duncan (rest), Ginobili (back), Parker (hamstring), Splitter ("calf rehabilitation"), Mills (shoulder) all out.

Paul Garcia

Ginobili's out with a low back contusion - took a hit vs. Nuggets in 2Q. Splitter for right calf rehabilitation.

Paul Garcia

Spurs announce Duncan (rest), Manu Ginobili (back), Patty Mills (shoulder), Tony Parker (hamstring) & Tiago Splitter (calf) all out tonight

Paul Garcia

Duncan-Splitter high-low perfection. Duncan saw Tiago had Afflalo on him, quickly passed to Splitter for the easy two points.

Paul Garcia

The Duncan-Splitter passing has returned seconds into the game. Splitter to the line.

Chris Dempsey

Spurs will start: Cory Joseph, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter

Paul Garcia

Splitter makes2 free throws, it's a 2 possession game with 6:30 left.

Mike Trudell

A great play in transition from Danny Green, who sprinted back to swat Lin, doesn't help as Splitter commits an offensive foul.

Paul Garcia

Splitter returns, this time for Diaw.

Jeff McDonald

Worth noting: With guys coming back, Spurs' rotations have been wonky. Parker playing in 5-min bursts, Splitter sitting a whole half, etc.

Paul Garcia

Wesley Johnson is now 3/3 from three and the Lakers as a team are 10/15. Tiago to the line, pretty consistent.

Dan McCarney

Couldn't run an offense through Tiago, but his ability to make that extra pass in the paint is a nice little bonus to his game.

Paul Garcia

Tiago and Duncan just a made a possession that looked like a goner turn into something productive with the cutting and passing.
