• Spurs' Duncan, Ginobili both out against Nets

    Summary of 6 articles · Updated Feb 11, 2013
    San Antonio Spurs stars Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will miss Sunday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets, coach Gregg Popovich said. Duncan, who has been hampered by a knee injury, will sit out for the eighth time in the Spurs' last 10 games, while Ginobili will miss his fourth consecutive contest due to a hamstring injury. Since the start of the 2002-03 season, the Spurs are 7-6 in regular-season games that point guard Tony Parker has played without both Duncan and Ginobili, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Now he’s keeping two of his three stars, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili , on the bench in street clothes for an extended period because of injuries that are surely real but not exactly crippling. After the Nets were embarrassed by Tony Parker and the Spurs on Sunday night, there was a lot of touchy-feely talk in their locker room about how they need to trust each other more and how they must be tougher mentally when opponents put together a run. Two nights after a loss in Detroit ended their 11-game winning streak, the Spurs got back on track quickly behind Parker, who fell short of his third straight 30-point game only because he was so good that he sat out the final minutes of the rout. Popovich could sit all three stars against the Cavs to get them some extra rest with the break, but he didn't want to speculate about their availability for that game at this point.
