Bryn Forbes just said Davis Bertrand came and stole his shine in his pre-game dunk contest. The Spurs do these from time to time.

Despite the first quarter struggles and the physical play, Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said he'll stick with Clint Capela at center and continue to bring Nene off the bench. The Rockets averaged a 30.4 points per game in the first quarter during the regular season but have slipped to a 25 points per game average during the four playoff games. "Nene can only play so many minutes so Clint has to be able to take the rest of those minutes," D'Antoni said. "We can use Ryan (Anderson) some at the five and give them a different look. It's a great learning experience for Clint there's no way he's going to come from playing four or five minutes a game to trying to lead the team to the next round. He's learning and he's been up and down a little bit. I expect him to improve and we have confidence in him."
