The San Antonio Spurs play their fourth game in five nights on Thursday again and this time at the New York Knicks.
When most recently faced with this situation, Gregg Popovich sent Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green back to San Antonio and the organization was fined $250,000.
“Knowing Pop, he can do anything,” Parker said. “Me personally, I feel great. I didn’t play in the fourth quarter against Brooklyn, or Dallas either. I’m sure Timmy feels great. I think we’re going to play.”
“It’s not about rest,” Popovich said. “It’s about being as healthy as possible at the end of the year. What we did is about health and safety of players, so that they’re there, and we have a shot at the end of the year. There’s a difference.”
