QuickCap: Spurs perform illusions, Michael, over Magic, 110-89

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

The Spurs come into Orlando with a days rest. The same starters as usual -- Tony Parker, Gary Neal, Danny Green, Tim Duncan, DeJuan Blair. It seems the rest has added some rust -- Spurs start out looking stagnant and lacking flow. Pop calls timeout and brings in Manu Ginobili, the human spark plug. Manu brought out the ball movement and open looks for his team mates. Nando de Colo getting more minutes late in the quarter. Ginobili ended up scoring 4-4 3pt to end the quarter.

As the norm, the bench come out to start the 2nd. The Spurs have the league's best passers and have the ability to play them all at the same time: Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw, and Nando de Colo. DeJuan Blair has been in for the majority of the 2nd quarter but it seems he's met his match with Glen Davis. Tony Parker showing life late in the 2nd quarter getting a fast break and-one, and general TP domination. And Tim Duncan hits a 3 in transition at the end of the quarter. YUP!

The starters come out to start the 3rd. Orlando starts by making its first 4 shots. Spurs struggle early on to find a basket. The efforts of Gary Neal and Tony Parker help end the drought.

The remainder of the 3rd and 4th quarters are what we consider "garbage time" -- none of the starters for either teams will be back on the court tonight. Cory Joseph, Matt Bonner, and James Anderson getting a fair amount of minutes.
