The San Antonio Spurs looked anything but old as they rolled to a victory behind 24 points and 11 rebounds from Tim Duncan their last time out, but Tuesday night's game might be a bit more difficult. The Spurs are in South Beach to play the struggling Miami Heat in a game scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. tip-off on NBA TV.
Duncan and the Spurs are off to a 9-4 start this season, an impressive fact considering the advancing age of San Antonio's players along with the loss of Manu Ginobili due to injury. The 35-year-old Duncan has been inconsistently solid, but he and Tony Parker seem to be able to step up when necessary while fellow veteran Richard Jefferson has looked better than his previous seasons in San Antonio.
The Heat could be without Dwyane Wade as he recovers from a sprained ankle suffered last week, but that decision likely won't be revealed until closer to game time. Even with Wade, however, the Heat haven't looked amazing this season as their current three-game skid will show.
