Robert Horry Could Match Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s Record Next Game

One playoff appearance shy of matching Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the all-time leader in postseason games played, Horry ignored Engelland’s plea and ambled toward the locker room.

After 236 postseason games, Horry understands his own body and when his shooting stroke is right.

He is ready for Game 4, he said, and eager for what could be a historic call from Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, with one caveat: When, and if, Popovich puts him in the game, the veteran from Alabama wants it to be because Popovich has a real need for what he can give the Spurs. [My San Antonio]
