Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu, Danny Green sent home won't play vs Heat
 
The San Antonio Spurs have sent four of their top-five leading scorers back home instead of playing the Miami Heat on Thursday in a nationally televised game.

Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green did not travel with the team after Wednesday night’s win in Orlando.

The Spurs were already without Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson.

Gregg Popovich will have nine active players.

“We’re getting tired,” Popovich said. “We’ve had a six-day trip and a 10-day trip. Usually you don’t have that in one month.”

Wow, that is really disappointing. This was gonna be a great challenge for both teams to see where they're at with one an another. Pop couldn't just sit em out next game?

Stern and TNT can't be happy about this. Sounds very much like Pop picked the game he figured they were least likely to win and gave his guys a day off. Makes sense for the Spurs but the League picks teams to showcase on nights like this and doesn't want a starless team getting pounded by 30.

Usually I'm ok with Popovich doing this from time to time. But for a game like this, one of those "possible NBA Finals preview" games on national TV, and he sends his three best players home and another starter? Sorry, but as an NBA fan who was really looking forward to this game tonight, I'm pissed.

Wow Pop just trolled so many people. I wanted the Heat to lose tonight so the Nets could be tied with them for first. Dang it. Pop is the ultimate coach in prioritizing playoffs over regular season. NO other coach would rest their starters on a TNT game.
