Spurs big three take the night off
San Antonio Express-News blog:

Meanwhile, the Spurs’ Big Three — Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker — didn’t even go to Salt Lake City for Monday’s back-to-back rematch against the Jazz. Coach Gregg Popovich deemed rest for his three stars far more important than extending the Spurs’ 11-game winning streak.

Bonner and his teammates are relatively sure their Big Three will be back on the court tonight.

“I’m just guessing, but I expect so,” Bonner said, a sentiment echoed by guard Gary Neal.

“They might see a little action,” Neal said.

Re: Spurs big three take the night off
Jazz end star-less Spurs' 11-game win streak -- The AP reports: With a playoff spot locked up and a grueling stretch ahead, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich called it a ''no brainer'' to rest stars Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. That was fine by a Utah Jazz team still trying to punch a ticket to the postseason. After losing to the Spurs by 10 on Sunday night in San Antonio, the Jazz (30-28) rebounded with a 91-84 victory in Monday's rematch in Salt Lake City... Credit Devin Harris, who scored 11 straight for the Jazz in the fourth quarter and had a team-high 25 points... Al Jefferson led the Jazz with four blocks. He added 12 points and 10 rebounds and a steal. Paul Millsap had 18 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks for the Jazz, and sealed the win with a put-back dunk with 43 seconds remaining.
