The San Antonio Spurs may be 30-6 with a better point differential than the Golden State Warriors, none of that is changing how they approach the season. Guys will get rested.

For Wednesday night, that will mean Tony Parker and LaMarcus Aldridge will be sidelined against Utah.

Patty Mills and David West will get the starts.

In their last 15 games, the Spurs have outscored opponents by 21.1 points per 100 possessions — that’s 11.2 better than the Warriors over that same stretch. The Spurs are stride-for-stride with Golden State this season.

Just don’t expect that to change how Gregg Popovich is going to approach things.
