    Tony Parker's stat line from Saturday against Miami: 18:25 min; 0 PT; 0 RB; 0 AST; 0 ST; 0 BS; 1 PF; 3 TO; -25.

    DND today against ORL.

    I hope he's not hurt. Would be fun to see Bev going against him.

    Any word on the starting line-up?

    5- Asik
    4- Howard
    3- Parsons
    2- Harden
    1- Beverly

    Very likely.

    I'm kinda hyped about this game. Kawhi Leonard has been beasting in the preseason, will be fun to see how our wings (Parsons, Casspi, Garcia) go up against theirs (KL, Green, Belinelli). There's going to be a lot of 3s in the house!

    I'm not surprised Tony's been playing poorly if he is hurt. But Big 3 aside, Pop is really trying to work on Kawhi as a new offensive option and testing out the bench rotation, so I doubt we see a lot of TP/TD/Manu. My matchup to watch would be Parsons/Kawhi, although Bev/Parker would be nice too, just don't think we'll see Parker much.

    Without Parker, the Spurs are killing the Magic right now. I know it's the Magic but still...

    Duncan was manhandled by Asik last time they met and I doubt Splitter can do anything against Howard. Unless Asik and Howard implode, there is not much to see.

    It's pre-season. Knowing Spurs, they'll not play him that much if he's got some aches anywhere even a mosquito bite perhaps. Spurs is reputedly one of the most conservative teams in NBA. Even in regular season, they will always strive to preserve their stars but they'll give it all surely during playoffs.

    This is a better team to gauge the Asik-Howard experiment. Splitter is no Nowitzki.

    No, but Dalembert is a damn good rim protector. It was a good test for our own Twin towers. Dirk and Dalembert will make a very formidable big man combo, they clogged the lane on every layup attempt, which is why we needed all the 3-balls to beat them.

    Oh man, I hope we get this win. I can't stand the Spurs, unless forced to choose between them and the Heat. :grin:
