- Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Tony Parker’s leg is “fine,” but he’s hopeful that Parker can avoid the second half of Game 4 when he came out of the locker room and went scoreless in the second half. “His leg is fine, so whatever he does at halftime … keep it warm. Don’t get stiff,” Popovich said. Parker sustained a Grade 1 strain of his right hamstring in Game 3.
- Chris Bosh has told reporters he expected to be “a mess” prior to Game 5 tonight. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said he can understand the nerves. “This is the life we chose,” Spoelstra said. “You feel alive at this time of year.”
- While Spoelstra said he didn’t enjoy waiting the two days between games, Popovich welcomed the extra day. “Speaking selfishly, for myself, the two days were great because we’re a little older,” Popovich said. “We need a little more time.”
