Does the longer the series go help or hurt the spurs? The classic rest vs rust debate.

It usually hurts teams. But they are old & need rest so it probably helps them!

Because they are old it helps more them more than most teams.

I think since they have so much experience then it can only help. If they were young and had all that time off it would hurt. It will also help them with some much needed rest

They are old. They need all the rest they can get. It helps them for sure.

Helps the spurs get rest, and i dont think it will hurt miami since they were rusty both times after really long rest. miami and SA will split the first 2 home games in miami

Two words: Greg Popovich.
He wont let the spurs acquire this so called "rust".
He's been through this situation before and is one of the best coaches in history, he knows how to keep a team ready.

It has no effect whatsoever!

The NBA Finals begin on June 6th no matter what happens in the Pacers-Heat series!

That doesn't matter, because the Spurs would be playing like a week longer if the series went 6-7 games. So instead of playing games 5, 6, and 7 (as well as probably practicing for them) they are resting.

Putting the cart before the horse, much?

It helps without a doubt, Spurs get some rest while the others battle. They don't have to worry about injuring themselves unlike whichever team makes it out the east.

It'll allow TP's calf to get to 100%, it's been getting there, but this will only help him health-wise. I could see him struggling with his shot early on in the finals due to rust though.

I think it'll mainly benefit Kawhi Leonard who's been dealing with Quad Tendinitis the majority of the season.

Tim's been dealing with this since last fall, I highly doubt it's going to affect him now as it doesn't seem to have all season. He's one of the mentally strongest guys this league has seen.

If anything, he'll be getting some more time with his kids during this time

As someone said..the actual Pacer/Heat series doesn't effect us at all seeing as we are going to get the same amount of rest regardless since they Spurs won early. Pacers/Heat players will get an extra couple days of rest if it ends in 6, otherwise I don't see much of an effect.

That's been going on all season, and he responded the day the news came out by playing 44 minutes and dominating the Grizzlies in overtime. I don't think Tim Duncan's brain is ever going to be an issue.

rest is really important to the Spurs. They are so fundamentally sound i wouldnt expect them to come out rusty

Like most said I think the spurs will be fine. They almost never skip a proverbial beat.

Helps the Spurs since they are older and need the rest also consider Parker and Manu have had injuries all year.

The finals are starting on June 6th whether Miami-Indy went 7 or 4. The Miami-Indy series does nothing to effect the Spurs. The Spurs-Grizz series ending in a sweep is what will help them heal up.

I agree with this. They are a Championship team who's stars have been here many times before. They know what it takes and will spend the time off wisely in preperation. Contrarily, if this was there first rodeo, I could see how the long layoff could hurt. First time in the bright lights can be a distraction...

NBA History ‏@NBAHistory 2m
Spurs = 7-0 in Game 1s of playoff series on 5 or more days rest since '03. They will have 9 days off before Gm 1/NBA Finals @EliasSports

I know it's not totally relevant cause every series is different, but thought it was interesting to throw out there
