“Our bench has to give us something,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Sunday, a day after the Mavericks took a 2-1 series lead on Vince Carter’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer to win Game 3. “Three or four other guys, we’ve gotten a lot out of them all year long. They need to show up.”

It isn’t hard to figure out who those three or four players are.

With the exception of Manu Ginobili, every other member of the Spurs’ vaunted Foreign Legion reserve unit — Boris Diaw, Patty Mills and Marco Belinelli — has underachieved during the first three games.
