Duncan sits as Spurs beat Wolves 93-86Posted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: Thinking already about the playoffs, Tim Duncan took the night off against a team the San Antonio Spurs won’t have to worry about once they get there. Resting his sometimes troubled knees in the final game of a back-to-back for San Antonio, Duncan watched from the bench as Tony Parker scored 24 points and carried the Spurs to a 93-86 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night… Sebastian Telfair and Kevin Love had 17 points apiece for Minnesota. Roger Mason had 15 points for the Spurs, who now await a bigger test Friday at home against the Boston Celtics. Against Northwest Division-worst Oklahoma City on Monday, the Spurs blew a 17-point lead. The Spurs struggled again early against Minnesota—only a game better than the Thunder—before putting the Wolves away in the fourth.
