In addition to his game-high points he added seven assists, five rebounds, two steals, and one block to his stat line for the night while playing excellent defense, and the Spurs did not have an answer.
The Spurs missed open looks and they started the night 0-of-14 from three-point range until making one in the final minutes of the third quarter.
Every team is going to have off nights, it’s just not usually expected of the Spurs on their home court where before Friday they had only lost three games.
