06:02 PM ET 04.28 | Aron Baynes will make his first career start in Game 4 of the playoff series between the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. Baynes is starting in place of Tiago Splitter, who sprained his ankle in Game 3 and will miss at least another week. Baynes appeared in 16 games during the regular season, averaging 2.7 points and 2.0 rebounds in less than nine minutes per contest. He played just seven total minutes in the Spurs' three playoff wins. Asked before the game what he liked about Baynes, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich jokingly replied: "Nothing."

Asked before the game what he liked about Baynes, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich jokingly replied: "Nothing."I bet Pop wasn't even joking.

Dude ended up playing pretty well. 6pts and some decent defense.

And now that they'll ave a week off, Tiago should be back.

He had a nice game for a guy who has only been in the league a few months and has had limited playing time. He can hit the outside shot, and does well defending. Looking forward to what he can do next year.
