It was interesting to see what happened Sunday between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. The Miami Heat were without PG Mario Chalmers (ankle), SF LeBron James (hamstring) and SG Dwyane Wade (ankle) for the potential NBA Finals preview on national television. Was head coach Erik Spoelstra playing a little cat-and-mouse with Spurs Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio fans, or are the trio really hurt and it was just a coincidence they sat out?
Remember back to late November in Miami when Popovich rested four of his five starers (Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green and Tony Parker), citing rest to get his team ready for a home game against the Memphis Grizzlies. It irked Commissioner David Stern, who fined the Spurs $250,000 for not playing the stars.
