Found June 11, 2013 on NESN.com:
Tim Duncan and Tony Parker were likely looking forward to playing at home for the next three games of the NBA Finals. They might be reconsidering after a pregame snag that could throw off their routine. The two Spurs stars reportedly missed warm-ups for Game 3 after getting caught in San Antonio traffic, according to KSAT. However, the two did apparently arrive at the game in time for tip-off, and they won’t be missing any action. The NBA Finals are tied at 1-1 entering a pivotal Game 3, with the Heat riding high after a Game 2 blowout. The traffic appears to be no joke, either, as Yahoo!’s Dan Wetzel noted how few fans had been able to fight through it themselves a half-hour before tip. You can bet that all the players will be leaving themselves extra time to arrive to the arena for future games.
