as SA fan kudos to pop for thinking long term and boosting the confidence of his bench players

but as NBA fan i also want my money's worth fans pay to see the superstars play not the 2nd stringers.

this is an eye opener to NBA officials to amend their rules and to balance everything for the fans, players, teams & sponsors
maybe an advance team line up can be broadcasted so fan would know what they are buying, and a min. 20 min. playing time for superstars of every team (unless injured) can be a good start to avoid fans from complaining of being cheated.


i was wondering what if san antonio won that one. remember they are leading by 5 entering the last 2 minutes of the game.

sayang sana nga nanalo ang spurs as they were leading going into the final 2 minutes of the game.

popo can just declare that he trust his reserves can do the job and who can question him had they won that game? the proof is right there, loud and clear.

who knows that could have saved popo some 250,000 dollars! :biglaugh:

Rockets-Spurs Game Review

San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Tony Parker led six Spurs in double figures with 17 points while also dishing out seven assists as San Antonio routed the Houston Rockets, 114-92, on Friday.

Tim Duncan, Gary Neal, Manu Ginobili and Patty Mills added 12 points apiece, with Duncan also contributing 12 rebounds in San Antonio's third straight win and its eighth victory in nine games.

Tiago Splitter rounded out the Spurs' double-digit scorers with 15 points.
James Harden scored 29 points to pace the Rockets, who have dropped their last six road games. Patrick Patterson and Toney Douglas each contributed 10 points in defeat.
Parker led the way with eight points as the Spurs opened the game with a 12-2 run.
Harden answered with a personal 11-2 push to get the Rockets back within one, but they could not take the lead and trailed, 29-21, heading into the second quarter.

San Antonio again raced out of the gate in the second, starting the frame with an 11-3 swing to jump ahead, 40-24.The Rockets would trail by double digits from there until an 8-0 run brought them within, 48-39, with about three minutes left in the half, on a Patterson jumper.
The Spurs, however, scored nine of the second quarter's final 15 points to take a 57-45 advantage into the break.

Houston was not able to cut its deficit to single figures again until Harden netted seven straight points around a Duncan jumper before stealing an errant Danny Green pass and feeding Jeremy Lin for a breakaway layup, making it a 66-58 game with 7 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter.

But the remainder of the frame belonged to the Spurs, who scored the next 15 points to run out to an 81-58 lead and used a 68.4 percent shooting performance in the third quarter to carry an 87-66 advantage into the fourth.
San Antonio's bench stretched its lead up to as much as 33 in the fourth as the Spurs cruised to the victory.

Parker & Co. share in Rockets’ sorrow

As far as setups go, this one felt like old hat for the Spurs.

Their bags were packed, the wives and kids had been kissed goodbye, a plane was idling on some tarmac somewhere.

“I haven’t even really unpacked from the last trip,” guard Gary Neal said. “I took all my clothes out of the suitcase, washed them and put them right back in.”

Before the Spurs could embark on their third long road trip of the young season, on which they will play four games in four time zones, there was one loose end left to tie up Friday at the AT&T Center.

A 114-92 victory over Houston satisfied dual goals for the Spurs — they pocketed their 16th victory of the season, and with the miles that lie ahead, didn’t have to waste too much energy to do it.

Tony Parker had 17 points and seven assists for the Spurs, while Tim Duncan turned in a 12-point, 12-rebound double-double. More crucial given the trip that begins tonight in Charlotte, neither had to lift a finger in the fourth quarter.

In fact, no player logged more than Neal’s 25 minutes, 41 seconds, for the Spurs, who never trailed and led by as many as 33 points in the second half.

Spreading the minutes around was a pregame objective for coach Gregg Popovich, who admitted he needed help from his players to achieve it.

“You never know what’s going to happen,” Popovich said. “It could be a two-point game, and then all those guys wouldn’t have played the same way.”

Not that the Spurs (16-4) are exactly weary of traveling. They have won 29 of their last 34 regular-season road games, dating to 2011-12, and lead the league in road wins this season with a 9-2 mark.

“It just shows the professional manner of the team,” Neal said. “We handle the road like we handle homecourt advantage.”

If the Rockets (9-9) had a chance to be more than just a speed bump in the way of the Spurs’ next road trip, it disintegrated during a span of 3:40 in the third quarter.

Houston had closed to 66-58 after Jeremy Lin’s transition layup with 7:27 left in the frame. Popovich called timeout and gently reminded players a game was still going on.

“We refocused ourselves at that point,” Duncan said.

A Duncan jumper out of the break, followed by three more quick baskets from Neal, sparked a 15-0 run that put the Rockets away.

By the time it was over, the Spurs led 81-58, and Houston was on the way to squandering James Harden’s 29-point night.

The Spurs were en route to their eighth win in nine games — with the loss coming short-handed at Miami.

“That’s what we strive to become,” said Lin — who had four points, four assists and six rebounds — of the Spurs. “You might see it in a great game, half, or stretch when we play like that. But we’ve got to get to the point where we’re running the system.”

The Spurs held the NBA’s third-highest scoring team to nearly 12 points below its season average while setting a season scoring high of their own. They also matched a season high with 33 assists.

The Spurs once again got solid production off the bench, with 15 points from Tiago Splitter, 12 apiece from Manu Ginobili and Patty Mills and seven points and five assists from Nando De Colo.

“That’s something Coach Pop has made sure we focus on,” Mills said.

“From the first guy to the last guy, it’s making sure we’re sharp all the time.”

If Matt Bonner’s dunk from Cory Joseph with 4:55 to go didn’t signal the undignified end for the Rockets, De Colo’s backdoor layup from Joseph moments later did.

By then, Parker, Duncan and Ginobili might have already had their feet propped up on the team plane, had the league allowed it.

“It was good to keep our minutes down, spread it around as much as possible,” Duncan said. “We want to have as much rest as possible and not take Charlotte lightly.”

Bags in hand, the Spurs headed for the airport not long after the final horn, on the road again.

Injury report:

Popovich said reserve swingman Stephen Jackson “might” participate in the Spurs’ upcoming four-game, six-day road trip, which begins tonight in Charlotte. Jackson has missed eight games with a broken small finger on his shooting hand.

Popovich said Kawhi Leonard will be with the team. Leonard has missed 10 games with quadriceps tendinitis. He was originally slated to miss 10-14 days, but is beginning his fourth week on the sideline.

Popovich said forward DeJuan Blair’s ankle injury, suffered late in the game, wasn’t severe.
