From Spurs Nation newspaper article today mentioned this:
| Afterward, Popovich said he briefly considered giving Duncan the night off against the Nuggets on the second night of a back-to-back. |
| “I just show up to play,” Duncan said with a shrug, “and they play me however much they want to play me.” |
Somehow I think Pop was just a bit too weak when TD asked him to either play the B2B or to stay in a game for few extra minutes thinking maybe they could have a W....
“I asked them if it wasn't too much trouble, if I wasn't being too pushy, if they could execute what we were trying to do. And if it didn't make them too angry, if they also wanted to play some defense on the other end, that would be great.”
