Soobum Im-US PRESSWIRE

1st:

  • To start the game, both teams are coming up with a lot of passes but no results.
  • Spurs decide to run the offense through Tim Duncan.
  • With no Manu Ginobili tonight, Stephen Jackson subs in for Danny Green
  • Kawhi Leonard with back-to-back points, one a baseline move for a layup, the next, an alley-oop from Tony Parker.
  • San Antonio's favorite* lineup of Gary Neal, Danny Green, Stephen Jackson, Matt Bonner, and DeJuan Blair makes an appearance at the end of the 1st.
  • Spurs trail 25-21. Wizards shooting 75% FG

2nd:
  • Pop ran a lineup of Gary Neal, Danny Green, Stephen Jackson, Matt Bonner, DeJuan Blair through the first half of the 2nd quarter. It didn't work out. Jan Vesely tore up our defense.
  • Spurs have tried letting different players run the plays, such as Gary Neal and Kawhi Leonard, but none have been as successful as Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, tonight
  • With how terrible the Spurs have been, they tied the Wizards at 45 with 1:52 left in the half. They overcame a 13 pt deficit.
  • Spurs trail 48-47 at the half

3rd:
  • Wizards come out of the half shooting back-to-back 3 pointers.
  • Pop must have made a HELL of a halftime speech because the Spurs come out playing some pretty fluid defense.
  • Patty Mills given minutes in the last 3 minutes of the 3rd. Immediately makes an impact finding open players on the fast break.
  • Spurs gain the lead 74-66 after a great quarter of defense.

4th:
  • Tiago Splitter seeing his first action of the game, starts the 4th.
  • Halfway through the quarter, Nando de Colo gets his first minutes. New HVC?
  • Over all, Spurs defense allowed fewer easier shots and second chance points to the Wizards, when compared to the first half.
  • about 4:30 left in the game, Pop uses a lineup of Cory Joseph, Patty Mills, Nando de Colo, Gary Neal, Josh Powell. (Ultra small ball). Tiago Splitter re-entered a few minutes later for Gary Neal.
  • This lineup finished the game for the Spurs to a 100-85 victory.
