"You've got to do whatever is best for you and your team to be ready for the playoffs," Spurs veteran Pau Gasol said. "To be at your best at that point, whether it's playing more or playing less. That's up to the coaching staff to make that assessment. That's kind of our mindset, prepare for the bigger dance."
SAN ANTONIO -The San Antonio Spurs Authentic Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey have the league's second-best record and can decide if they want to prepare for the postseason by resting or not resting players.
Kawhi Leonard had 25 points and seven assists, and the Spurs held off the Jazz 109-103 on Sunday in a matchup of postseason-bound teams.
San Antonio (59-17) had six players sit for rest and injury.
The Spurs got their 30th home win despite resting Manu Ginobili, David Lee and Patty Mills, and missing injured starters LaMarcus Aldridge and Danny Green. Aldridge has a sprained left thumb and Green sat out with a bruised left quadriceps.
In the midst of five games in seven nights to close the season, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich opted to sit almost half his roster.
"That's a lot of games, a lot of activity for the end of the season," Popovich said. "Then we have to end it by going all the way to Portland, so I think we need to manage it wisely."
The Jazz do not have that luxury.
Utah (47-30) leads the Los Angeles Clippers http://www.officialbluejaysproshop.com/Dalton_Pompey_Jersey(47-31) by a half-game for the Western Conference's No. 4 seed and home-court advantage in the opening round.
The Jazz closed to 102-98 on Joe Johnson's 16-footer with 2:06 remaining that capped a 10-0 run. Leonard then blocked a shot by 7-foot-1 center Rudy Gobert to help San Antonio preserve the victory.
Gobert had 19 points, 14 rebounds and six blocked shots. Boris Diaw scored 19 points, making all nine of his shots against his former team.
Leonard had 19 points in the third quarter as the Spurs rebuilt a 15-point lead they lost in the first half.
The Spurs took a 17-point lead following a 20-4 run bridging the first and second quarters. The Jazz rallied behind six points, five blocks and four rebounds from Gobert in the second quarter.
Tony Parker http://www.officialpiratesproshop.com/Drew_Hutchison_Jersey had 21 points. Five of the team's nine-player rotation scored in double figures.
"Tony's getting his mojo back, I think," Popovich said. "The last couple of games, he's starting to get confidence shooting his shot. It looks like he's getting his speed back, so that was good to see."
Jonathon Simmons was huge in 33 minutes off the bench, going for 17 points on 7 of 14.
Davis Bertans made his fifth start of the season, finishing with 11 points on 4 of 8. Kyle Anderson drew his 13th start, chipping in four points, nine rebounds and four assists.
Playing without George Hill and Derrick Favors, the Jazz leaned heavily on Rudy Gobert (19 points, 14 assists, six blocks) and Gordon Hayward (16 points, four assists).
Boris Diaw, who played with the Spurs from 2011-12 to 2015-16, finished with 19 points on an immaculate 9-of-9. He became the first player since Charles Barkley in 1989 to finish perfect from the field while attempting at least nine shots against the Spurs.
Whatever ailed Leonard seemed to disappear inside the locker room, as he returned to lead the Spurs to a 109-103 win over Utah at the AT&T Center.
Leonard erupted for 19 points in the third period to give the Spurs (59-17) a 10-point cushion heading into the final frame. It represented the highest single-quarter scoring output of his career.
He finished with 25 points http://www.officialpiratesproshop.com/Willie_Stargell_Jersey and matched his career high with seven assists.
Tony Parker turned his fortunes around after a difficult week. He posted 19 points and five assists after totaling just 10 and five, respectively, against Cleveland, Golden State and Oklahoma City.
