Greetings everyone! After a long vacation, I'm back to blogging again. Hmm. Today's game includes: the Bulls v the Spurs, the Mavs v the Jazz, the Bucks v the Nuggets.
The Chicago Bulls [9-16] visits the San Antonio Spurs [19-7] at the AT&T Center without their coach Scott Skiles. Replacing coach Skiles for the meantime is the Bulls assistant coach Pete Myers. Bulls starting lineup: Kirk Hinrich, Ben Gordon, Luol Deng, Joe Smith, & Ben Wallace. For the Spurs: Tony Parker, Michael Finley, Bruce Bowen, Tim Duncan, & Fabricio Oberto. Manu Ginobili will be out due to a sprained left index finger & Francisco Elson will be a gametime decision. Looks like Ime Udoka is going to have more playing time, just like what happened during the Clippers-Spurs game where he got 17 pts & 9 rebounds [career high].
They hate it and they love it. They hate having guys hurt, because everybody wants the best chance to win, but they love getting minutes." - Gregg Popovich, San Antonio Spurs
