After their practice session, the San Antonio Spurs were in the Miami Heat's thoughts already (40 second mark in video below). They were asked questions on the surprising start by the Spurs by answering it's the same thing with San Antonio - they keep on winning. They give the Spurs their props and rightfully so. The Spurs are starting out strong, especially being short handed in the small forward position. Don't think the Heat are just using this to give the Spurs respect. They're smart, they don't want to give the Spurs any motivation on the second game of a back to back. They know what to expect from the Spurs even if they're shorthanded. It'll be a very interesting game. We'll see how the Spurs will respond to the Heat and if the Heat will show the Spurs little or too much respect on the court. The matchup of the night may be who has the better Euro step between Dwayne Wade and Manu Ginobili. Wade said his is on par with Manu Ginobili's while Manu has said that he's the creator of it, even though Wade's is more explosive. Will the Spurs show their winning ways against the Heat or will being shorthanded finally catch up to San Antonio?
