Resting Spurs in no rush to start West semifinals

By  | 

SAN ANTONIO -- Manu Ginobili is in no rush for the San Antonio Spurs to find out who they're playing next.

The top-seeded Spurs practiced Wednesday facing the possibility of not knowing whether they'll play Memphis or the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference semifinals until this weekend.

The Clippers lead that series 3-1 and can advance Wednesday night. But if the Grizzlies rally and push the series to the brink, Game 7 won't be until Sunday.

Ginobili says he wouldn't mind seeing the Grizzlies and Clippers go the distance so the winner will be more worn out for the second round.

Staying sharp is a new challenge for the Spurs. Coach Gregg Popovich obsessively monitored minutes during the condensed season but now faces a potential weeklong layoff.
