QuickCap: Spurs draw avatar of justice exalted feat on Wiz, 118-92

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Spurs come into the nation's capital off of a double OT win in Toronto. Despite playing more than 40 minutes, the regular starters started tonight in Washington, D.C against the winless-in-11-games-Wizards. The Spurs look admittedly tired, with shots falling a little short. On the other hand, the Wizards look well rested, shooting 54% in the first half of the 1st quarter. Patty Mills gets the early nod to sub for Tony Parker, at the 6:30 minute mark. Spurs finish the quarter on a 7-0 run.

To start the 2nd, Pop has Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Gary Neal (starters) with Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter. Judging by decisions the Spurs are making on both ends, fatigue really seems to be a factor here. They look to be treading water by trying to find easy looks under the rim. Manu Ginobili showing signs of life, making a pair of jumpers -- he has 7 points in 11 minutes. Spurs force a 5 second violation for the second game in a row. And they finish the quarter on a 10-0 run.

The starters start the second half, as expected. Tiago is effective early on with a steal and some good "garbage man" points. The big men of the Spurs are easily letting this game get out of hand. Tiago nearing a triple double with 15 points 9 rebounds and 6 assists in 19 minutes.

I doubt we'll be seeing any of the starters any more in this game. The Spurs bench is just embarrassing the Wizards. There isn't much to write about. The Wizards are just putting up jumpers, the Spurs are running sets and converting. Wasn't even close.
