The San Antonio Spurs go on the road against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and you can bet that Tim Duncan’s crew is favored (-3.5) with how hot they have looked early in the year. They may just have the deepest roster in the league and they are built intelligently so that Duncan does not have to play heavy minutes until the playoffs. Yet they still seem to win the West every with nobody really noticing, which is pretty amazing to me.
Gotta go with the Spurs here despite power forward Kevin Love on a tear to start the year and possibly even in the MVP conversation do not have total faith in the Wolves, just because of head coach Gregg Popovich’s individual coaching brilliance and offensive innovation. This would be a fun one to tune in for, but unfortunately do not have Direct TV and do not live in either of the areas. Will be sure to check out the highlights and box score though to let you know how things are shaping up for both teams.
Here is the TV info for that one.

Manu Ginobli had some kind words after their latest win for Duncan.
“We never lost trust in (Duncan)” Ginobli said. “We would be crazy if we did.”
It seems the Spurs have not quite gone crazy yet.
