Fried Chicken Fuels Bowen
Even more interesting than the news that Tim Duncan woke up at 6am on Sunday and had one of his best offensive performances of the season, was this bit about Bruce Bowen:
With a little more than two minutes remaining, Bowen took a pass from Parker and buried the go-ahead 3-pointer.
It was the only shot the Spurs made in the last 5:21 and one of only three 3-pointers they hit all game. The Spurs also thought it was fitting: On a day when most of them were fighting fatigue, the winning shot was made by a guy who hasn’t missed a game in more than 41/2 seasons.
“He’s never tired,” Ginobili said. “I don’t know how he does it.”
After leaving the team’s practice facility early Saturday evening, Bowen cooked a large Southern dinner of fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes and green beans. He was in bed by 11.
Like the rest of the Spurs, Bowen would have preferred to sleep in, to have more time to prepare.
“But in those situations,” he said with a shrug, “you just have to forget it and go on.”
