ESPN’s Michael C. Wright asked Gregg Popovich about the Spurs’ end of season plans, with coach Pop retorting that “nobody’s going to rest.”
Interesting. The Spurs haven’t played well in their last couple of games, though that was largely explained away by their bench-dominant lineups when stars like LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard sat out full halves. Pop also raised the very valid point that the Spurs have no back-to-backs left and a fairly light travel schedule, so they’ll spend the final two games trying to get into a rhythm. Fantasy players rejoice, as it certainly appears that they’ll have all the regular Spurs running at full capacity to end the year.
