The Southwest Division champion Spurs resume their series vs. the Thunder tonight, looking to hold serve at home in San Antonio. As ESPN.com's John Hollinger writes, the Spurs are very familiar with this situation, having entered a Game 5 with the series tied nine times already in the Tim Duncan era. Hollinger wonders what adjustments Gregg Popovich will make tonight, speculating that the team's changes could involve the use of Manu Ginobili and Matt Bonner. Here are a few more Monday updates out of the Southwest….
- We heard over the weekend that Spurs 2009 second-rounder Nando De Colo was prepared to join the team, with his Spanish contract expiring. De Colo's agent Wassim Boutanos spoke to Basketnews.net (translation via Sportando) and said that there's no guarantee San Antonio will have room for his client. If De Colo doesn't sign with the Spurs this summer, he'll remain in Spain and sign with a Euroleague team, according to Boutanos.
