Splitter Leaves Washington With Big Game And Big Expectations

No one could've thought the San Antonio Spurs would come out firing in a blowout against the Washington Wizards on Monday night after a double overtime game against the Toronto Raptors. With an older "Big 3," most might have expected the Spurs to fold this game and give the Wizards their first win (now 0-12). Instead, they come out energized as if they had a day off the day before. In a game where no Spur touched the 27 minute mark, the typical fan might have thought the box score may be a balanced one with no one really standing out. Then we have Tiago Splitter.....again. It might have been the lowly Wizards, but Tiago topped his performance against the Boston Celtics with 15 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists. That's impressive, but this is the stat line that makes it extremely impressive: 7-8 on free throw shooting.

Its all good experience doing this against the lesser teams. If he can eventually do the same against teams like Memphis, the Spurs will have a solid piece.

My thoughts exactly...I like Splitter and we all obviously want him to succeed but it seems like when one of our young players has "A great game" we think championsip.....let's see how he does against Memphis on Sat

Saturday seems a bit premature to be putting up good numbers. I'm thinking more like March 2013.

he needs to build up progress to put up big numbers by that time. even if he just puts up good numbers in the first part of the season, that's a lot of burden taken off our Big 3.
