Spurs Expect to be ‘rusty’ in Finals
Tim Duncan and the Spurs waited six long years to return to the NBA Finals. The final 10 days might be the most excruciating of all.
Informed of the lengthy gap between Monday’s completion of a sweep of Memphis in the Western Conference finals, and the June 6 start of the championship series against either Miami or Indiana, Duncan at first responded with one wordless syllable.
“Ugh,” the Spurs All-Star forward said.
“We’re going to be a little rusty starting the first game,” Duncan said. “That’s just how it is. We’re going to figure out how to practice and stay sharp. But bottom line, we’re going to be a little rusty.”
