Yeah you beat me to it, out 7-10 days.

thesuspence281 04-27-13 12:50 AM

Thats not too bad especially if the GS DEN series goes 6 or 7

MRJONESIII 04-27-13 08:13 AM

Got to Baynes out there to there and that big body to pick up some fouls and spell Bonner. Blair will have to defend better too. I think Diaw will suit up... Insurance only. But up 3-0, they might not risk any further damage.

SleepyAdamII 04-27-13 09:30 AM

Tracy McGrady, stretch 4 who can handle the rock, get well Tiago!

mckennaspur1 04-27-13 09:47 AM

7-10 sounds optimistic. I never believe anything that comes out of the Spur FO.

SleepyAdamII 04-27-13 11:09 AM

I hope Tiago gets well soon. I think we can close out the Lakers without him, they look dejected, tied, and confused. Bonner will need to step up (to be fair he's not doing poorly) and hopefully Aaron Baynes gets 10 minutes to buy time for timmy .

spursfan9 04-27-13 11:16 AM

blair vs howard.
howard is probably. oh dear

spurscrazed 04-27-13 12:07 PM

That sucks to have Split gone for 7 to 10 days. But hey it could have been worse... And I am glad vs Lakers not better opponents.

PLEASE get Well Tiago! We DEF Need you next round! Whoever it is we are playing is much much better than those f..... Lakers.

Go Spurs Go

He's been useless this series anyway. How many easy layups can one player miss?

joyner 04-27-13 01:17 PM

As far as I know, if the Nuggets-Warriors series goes 7 games, then our second round series will start 10 days from now. We should be fine.

You are kidding, yes? His presence in the paint, passing and steals has been invaluable.

thesuspence281 04-27-13 10:10 PM

at this point I dont think it really matters whether someone thinks hes valuable or not, the bottom line is we need everyone in the team healthy and contributing in one way or another

What's the difference between valuable and contributing? But I think I understand what you are saying. Move on and don't cry over spilled milk.

+1

Tiago is a presence in the paint defensively. He get's under people's skin.

KAD 04-28-13 10:41 AM

Tiago will be missed as a big body in there banging against Howard and Gasol but his performance on offense has been very mediocre and he could have used more playing time to get it to PO grade. Maybe sitting on the bench and watching will help him.

get well soon!

The guy has been in foul trouble and has been barely playing 20 minutes a game. He's in the game when Howard is out. It's been Duncan and Bonner mostly on Howard and Gasol. Maybe he's not completely useless, but he's definitely not the same against the Lakers. I'm sure he'll do better against lesser big men.

clovisnmspurfan 04-28-13 03:26 PM

People on this board tend to look at points as the only factor. He has not been scoring as easily in this series however has frustrated Howard to keep him off his game. That is his contribution this series also Bonner has been doing the same thing. Bonner's 10 points is a bonus.
Get well Splitter, we need you!

SleepyAdamII 04-29-13 01:08 PM

Just read, he is off crutches and walking around. Great Sign !

With as fast paced as the next round could be, it'd be nice to have Tiago, Diaw, Bonner and Blair all ready. Neither GS or Denver have strong post up games and the Spurs should be able to dominate either team.

Splitter is a very good passer and all around player and while he can't shut down a Dwight Howard, he more than holds his own against everyone else. His minutes per game against the lakers in the three playoff games were 23.7 which was only 1 minute different than during the regular season, where he averaged 24.7 minutes. His scoring and rebounds were both down, but nothing significant and his efficiency rating was a + 7.33.


There are some folks on this board who will never give him credit for his game no matter what he does. I'd rather he sit more and be ready for OKC, because that's where he's going to be needed, and while I wish we could, we can't expect Bonner to give the Spurs another performance like he just put in.

SleepyAdamII 04-30-13 09:05 PM

If anyone ever keeps up with Grantland, they have a great writer Zach Lowe, and he has diagrammed and dissected why Tim and Tiago are the best front court players during the regular season, both offesnively and defesenively.

Personally I would really like to know if Diaw is coming back, a PF who can handle the rock, shoot 3s, and generally craftyness would do well in the 2nd round.

You realize the contradiction there. Even when Bonner played decent in that first round loss against the Grizzlies a couple years back, no acknowledged it and still blamed him for everything.

Anyways, the Lakers matchup was bad for Tiago, he should do well in these other series.

tabspur 04-30-13 09:57 PM

Bonner- 2.4 points shooting 31% from the field vs the Grizz, while getting killed whenever he guarded Randolph constitutes a good playoff series? That seems to be more of a contradiction....

Try 48% FG and 6pts per game while being one of many guys who got killed by Randolph in that series. McDyess was the only guy who could guard Randolph that series.

tabspur 04-30-13 10:17 PM

My bad. Your right. 2.4 points was last year. He killed it with 6.0 ppg. But, I guess its all relative when we are talking about Bonner. And no, don't group him with McDyess during that series. Antonio played Randolph tough, and he hit tough shots. Bonner, ahh nevermind. He just had the series of his life, so I'll let him have his day.

clovisnmspurfan 04-30-13 11:10 PM

I would take Bonner over any other teams end of the bench player.

KAD 05-01-13 05:03 AM

Well am I glad that Pop will decide all this not us..

No I don't think there's a contradiction at all, even the Express-News noticed it
"* Matt Bonner was solid
Bonner’s playoff disappearances have become something of a spring tradition in San Antonio. He’s off to a great start this year, however, shooting 6 for 8 on 3s and providing dogged defense in spots against Howard and Gasol. That’s encouraging given the value he brings as a big who can stretch the floor.""

Now he did have a very nice series against the Lakers, but then so did everybody else on the team, so the question is are you willing to bet that he'll be able to repeat that performance? He's had (if we give him credit for last year's Memphis series) a grand total of TWO good series in his 7 year Spurs career and you'll never convince me that there's very many Spurs fans who don't cringe when he comes into a high pressure playoff game.
