Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News reports:

Down 3-0 to the Suns in their Western Conference semifinals series after a horrid showing at the line contributed heavily to Friday’s Game 3 loss at AT&T Center, the Spurs no longer are laughing about missed foul shots.

Tim Duncan shooting bricks from foul line

Tim Duncan missed 7 of 12 free throws in Friday’s loss. He is 13 for 27 from the line in the series, the primary offender on a team that has made only 65.4 percent of its 81 foul shots in the series.

After making 271 of 374 free throws during the regular season, a respectable 72.5 percent, Duncan has made only 30 of 62 foul shots in nine playoff games, a 48 percent figure that is embarrassing to him.
