Popovich, Duncan to miss another game
 
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and forward Tim Duncan will miss a second straight game after the ailing duo didn't make the trip for Friday night's game at Dallas.

Popovich stayed home sick and Duncan sat on the bench with a sore left knee Wednesday night during San Antonio's 106-102 victory against New Orleans. Longtime assistant coach Mike Budenholzer will again take the helm against the Mavericks.

Duncan is having a resurgent season after a few years of waning production. The 36-year-old is averaging 17.5 points and 9.8 rebounds, his best numbers since 2009-10.

The Spurs have won six straight and are tied with Oklahoma City for the best record in the Western Conference.

I didn't even notice pop didn't make the last game. I watched the Hornets feed on NBA League Pass.

Don't feel bad. My wife and I were at the game and I was so anxious to watch Manu during the warmup drills that I didn't even notice Duncan was missing. It wasn't until the Spurs starting lineup was introduced that I was aware that Pop wasn't there too and both Duncan and Leonard were in civies. So much for attention to detail.

It should be good for coach Bud and Splitter.

Pop is probably doing this on purpose so Coach Bud can show the league he can coach... :imo
