Countdown to Tip Off

by Elizabeth Ruiz

The San Antonio Spurs open the regular season Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzles in a rematch of last season's Western Conference Finals.

Tim Duncan says he's ready. 

"The preseason starts to get really long and really boring, so to play a game for real and be out on the court and get the energy going will be great," said Duncan.

It'll be his 17th season.

"I try not to think about it.  I try really hard not to think about it, but I feel great," he said.

Staying healthy will be his primary focus.

"Pop's  (coach Gregg Popovich) going to control my minutes in games and everything else and I'm just going to try to stay as healthy as possible and we'll see what happens," said Duncan.

The Spurs and the Grizzlies will face off at 7:30 pm at the AT&T Center.
