Official Spurs at Cavaliers Game Thread (6:00)

Spurs-Cavaliers Preview

By JORDAN GARRETSON
STATS Writer


(AP) -- The San Antonio Spurs just keep winning, regardless of who's available.

Despite numerous key injuries, San Antonio has won 13 of 14 and will try for its sixth straight victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night as it continues its annual rodeo road trip.

Despite the absence of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker due to injuries and Stephen Jackson for "personal reasons," San Antonio rolled to a 103-89 victory over Chicago on Tuesday. The Spurs got a career-high 26 points from Kawhi Leonard while Danny Green had 18 and Gary Neal added 16.

The Spurs (41-12) were outrebounded 49-26, but compensated by scoring 29 points off 19 Chicago turnovers.

"One would hope that you could play with anybody in your system, but it was a tough challenge for them tonight," coach Gregg Popovich said. "And I couldn't be more proud of what they did."

San Antonio, 3-1 on its nine-game trip necessitated annually by the rodeo occupying the AT&T Center, has won six of seven away from home and has the league's best road record at 19-10.

Parker, who's averaged 30.3 points in his last three contests, sat out Monday with a swollen right knee to avoid playing back-to-back games. Duncan (knee) and Ginobili (hamstring) missed their fourth and fifth consecutive games, respectively, and Popovich could sit all three stars again Wednesday with that being the team's final contest before the All-Star break.
Jackson's availability is also uncertain, and center Tiago Splitter could also find himself sidelined after an awkward fall in the first quarter Monday. He was icing his left ankle after the game.

"It's painful right now, but we'll see tomorrow how it feels," said Splitter, who had 16 points in 33 minutes.

The Spurs will try to piece it together again Wednesday against a Cavaliers team that's dropped two straight since a three-game winning streak. Cleveland (16-36) didn't fare well against another injury-hit club Monday, falling 100-92 to Minnesota.

The Cavs had their own injury scare when star guard Kyrie Irving rolled his ankle in the first half after landing on an opponent's foot. Irving hopped around painfully but played 36 minutes and scored 20 points. He wasn't available for interviews afterward as he spent time in the trainer's room.

Irving went 1 for 5 in the fourth quarter when the Timberwolves shot 75.0 percent and got 12 points from Luke Ridnour.

Wayne Ellington's 3-pointer cut the lead to 82-81 with 7:20 left, but Minnesota responded with a 10-2 run.

"We basically did it to ourselves," swingman C.J. Miles said. "They made some tough shots - don't take anything away from them - but for the most part, we gave the game to them.

"We just don't get it. It was just a poor effort from the start. It just didn't look like we were interested."

The Spurs won both meetings last season by a combined 51 points, shooting 57.0 percent from the field. Green averaged 16.5 points and hit seven of 11 3-pointers in the two games.

Irving averaged 16.0 points but shot 39.4 percent and had seven turnovers and eight assists.

So the Spurs may go into this one with Diaw, Bonner and Blair as the bigs? Thank goodness for the All Star break.

Thank Goodness this is the last one before the ASG!!!!

If Splitter plays, Spurs win by 12 points. And I am guessing Pop will sit him through this game. If he did not play Spurs squeeze by 3 points.

I would think Pop sits the Big Three in this one.
We will see.

Cavs will bring their best game vs Spurs, so don't ever think this will be an easy game to win.

Lots of Physical Toughness needed!!!!!

Danny Green from Downtown and KAWHI will do it again and carry this team!!!

Spurs TEAM 98
Cavs 95

Let's Go Spurs Go

Great Win for the Spurs!

I knew Cavs would bring their A game vs. Spurs esp after they knew that The Big Three were playing. That makes them play with a bigger purpose to win!!!And Spurs looked rusty at the first half then they brought the Juice in the second half.

So good to see Timmy Duncan back and Manu and Tony!

Kawhi played Awesome! That last shot was out of this world!!! IIIICE!

Also in the second half Gary Neal shot the ball very well!!He hit some Clutch shots with hands in his face! HE rocked in the 2nd half!

Blair played above average with his family and friends in attendance!!!

Now the Spurs players who are not participating in ASG, will get some rest!

Before continuing this Rodeo Road Trip at the West Coast!
