Scouting reports: Cavs-Pistons | Nets-Heat | Mavs-Spurs | Clippers-Suns

Spurs offense: Tim Duncan has been getting his job done in this series. After two games, he is averaging 29 points and shooting 59 percent (20-for-34). In addition, he is getting to the line 13 times a game and shooting 73 percent there. Tim is more active and aggressive offensively than he has been in a long time. However, he is getting very little help. When he was on the bench with foul trouble in the second quarter of Game 2, the Spurs couldn't even score a field goal.
