San Antonio guards Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, and forward Tiago Splitter are all out of the lineup for the Spurs in their game against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
Once the All-Star rosters had been named, Scott Brooks could get to work.
With interim coach John Loyer hoarsely shouting instructions, Brandon Jennings and the Detroit Pistons ran away from the San Antonio Spurs in the third quarter.
"I'm sure this has some special meaning, to say something different would be silly," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said, "but we expect them to come out hard and play."
"That doesn't happen very often," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We've been doing that really well all year long, but that's a ridiculous ratio right there."
