THROUGH THE WIRE: TUESDAY (01/25/10)
24. Just when things where going so well for the San Antonio Spurs, Tim Duncan became a concern. During a game against the Warriors, Texas state's Golden boy left briefly with a quoted, "hyperflexed left knee." still the injury isn't regarded to be anything more than a Duncan, cringe-worthy scare. After the T-Bot's knee buckled he returned to action. The guy really is a machine, he's not about to buckle under the pressure, especially when things are going so well. Just like the game, which San An won, 113-102 with Timmy's sweet 16.
48. It gets better for San Antonio however, much better. Their legendary coach Gregg Popovich will take Phil Jackson's seat in more ways then one as he will coach the Western team in this years All-Star game at the Lakers STAPLES Centre. This will be the second time that Greg will pop up to coach the leagues best out West. With the best record in the conference, Popovich is honored with the teams helm and it's fully deserved for one of the greatest coaches ever. He is fourth most winningest in L history and he has been the Western coach of the month every month this season. Look for him to win big with both of the Wests best.
82. The West's best are clicking right now but the beasts of the East are having even more injury problems. It may not be Texas but the Miami superfriends are going to have to focus on their lone-star LeBron James for awhile. Dwyane Wade may be looking cool in tinted glasses right now but migraines are still making his playing time a little less rosy. While Bosh is still not blooming due to a sprained left ankle that has been niggling him for a fortnight. Looks like Mike Miller will have to step it up again, especially with bench burner Eddie House also on the chilling list with another sprained ankle. So as the rest of the Heat take care of business Wade and Bosh will take care of the tweets.
O.T. It only took 0.5 seconds for New Orleans, David West to weather the Oklahoma City Thunder's storm...free agent Garrett Temple has got 10 days to show the Milwaukee Bucks all he's worth with career averages of 4.6 points and 1.1 rebounds in around 12 minutes a game, this guy makes the most of his time. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
