Should the Spurs Be Sanctioned For Resting Their Four Top Scorers?

Gregg Popovich rested his top four scorers tonight against the Miami Heat (Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green), sending them home to San Antonio to prepare for the Spurs’ next game against the Western Conference leading Memphis Grizzlies.

Knicks 102, Bucks 88

New York Knicks 102 Final Recap | Box Score 88 Milwaukee Bucks Kurt Thomas, PF 4 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 PTS | -4 I for one am in full support of these four-minute honorary starts, even if Kurt hasn’t made a shot since the Polk administration.
