This was a tightly contested game. Channing Frye was unstoppable for the Suns early on. The Spurs were sloppy, and their defense wasn't effective in the way that we are used to. The Suns shot over 50% for most of this game.

In the end, we had The Manu, and he made several plays when it counted to lead the team over the young Suns. If you haven't already heard, Tim Duncan had played more career minutes than the entire Suns roster coming into this game. What?!

Your Spurs get a nice win and improve to 20-5 for the year.
