NOTE FROM THE UNDERGROUND
Kelli Anderson
November 10, 1997
As opponents focus their attention on Tim Duncan and David Robinson on the inside, they may find themselves crushed from the outside. Of the three key Spurs—Robinson, Sean Elliott and Chuck Person—who were out with injuries last year, only Person (right), suffering from back spasms, still had not returned when the season opened. In the preseason, though, his long-range shooting picked up where it had left off two seasons ago. In seven games the Rifleman, a career 36.8% three-point marksman, shot 41.4% (12 of 29) from beyond the arc.
