The annual Rodeo Road trip for the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs commences tonight with a game in Memphis and ends 19-days later, on February 23rd with a game against the Denver Nuggets.
Before the Spurs had a chance to begin their now famous road trip, the entire franchise received a scare when F/C Tim Duncan went down against the Washington Wizards last night at the AT&T Center. It was such a moment that even Wizards Head Coach Randy Wittman was concerned.
”That was scary when you see that,” Washington coach Randy Wittman said. ”Those are always the ones you don’t want to see when a guy falls into you while your feet are planted on the ground. I just talked to his doctors and they said he is going to be fine.”
Tony Parker spoke to reporters after the game.
“He’s fine, he’s fine,” Parker said. “It’s nothing big. I’m sure (coach Pop) is going to be very conscious about his knee and we’ll see.”
The Spurs will face Minnesota, Detroit, Brooklyn, Chicago, Cleveland, Sacramento, LA Clippers, Golden State, Phoenix and Denver.
