Without Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter dominated the paint in the Spurs' 106-102 win Wednesday over the New Orleans Hornets. Splitter went 10-for-11 from the field and 5-for-6 from the line for 25 points. He also pulled down seven rebounds, and added a dime and two steals in 32 minutes. Splitter is having a good season with season averages of 10 points (59.1 FG%, 74 FT%), 5.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, .8 steals and .8 blocks. However, in his last five games, Splitter has been even better: 12.6 points (65.1 FG%), 8.2 rebounds, .8 assists, .8 steals and .8 blocks. He's owned in just 31 percent of Yahoo leagues, which seems low for a solid big man. The Spurs also got good games out of Stephen Jackson and Danny Green. Both saw extra time with Kawhi Leonard out after a bizarre knee injury (getting cut by a nail on the 76ers' court). Jackson: 15 points (6-10 FG) with three 3-pointers, a rebound, three assists and a block in 29 minutes. Green: 12 points (5-11 FG), with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes. Manu Ginobili played 17 minutes in his return from a hamstring injury. He scored nine points (3-7 FG, 3-5 FT) to go with a rebound, five assists, three steals and a block. Wait for his numbers to increase before throwing him in. Hornets rookie forward Anthony Davis played 31 minutes and scored nine points to go with seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block. The No. 1 pick had sprained his ankle in Monday's game. he should be good to go.
