Analysis: It's only their third game of the season, but Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is not a fan of the congested early schedule. ''Everybody goes through this,'' Popovich said. ''This is our third game in five nights. Tomorrow's is going to be four games in six nights. It's ridiculous. (New Orleans) played at 8:30 last night and they have to play a back-to-back tonight. Seems like you could figure that out.'' Ginobili is averaging 9.0 points in 20.1 minutes in his 15th season.

Analysis: Ginobili had previously announced on his Twitter account that he would be rejoining the Spurs for a 15th season. The two-time All-Star and 2008 NBA Sixth Man of the Year, who averaged 9.8 points in 58 games in 2015-16, declined a $2.9 million player option earlier this summer.

Ginobili made the announcement on his personal blog Sunday. He turns 39 this month and declared himself a free agent last month after declining a player option for 2016-17 with the San Antonio Spurs.
Analysis: Ginobili didn't say Sunday if he would be back in San Antonio, though it has been widely presumed that if he continued playing, he would stay with the Spurs. He did say that he would have more news to share soon.
