No Duncan for tonight’s game


The San Antonio Spurs are sitting Tim Duncan for tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets.

San Antonio Express-News tweeted the announcement Saturday afternoon, which the Spurs then retweeted. In a subsequent tweet, it was announced Matt Bonner would start in Duncan’s place.

This is the Spurs’ fourth game in five nights, so his sitting out tonight isn’t a huge surprise. Starting the struggling Bonner over Tiago Splitter is a bit surprising, but Coach Pop must like where Splitter is in the rotation.
