In the Spurs' first game against DeJuan Blair as a Dallas Maverick, it wasn't the player they let go that made the biggest impact. It was Danny Green -- the man they call Icy/Hot -- who was perfect from behind the arc, from the field, and from the line.
San Antonio hasn't had many fast break points of late, but that ended Thursday night as they put up 25, including Kawhi Leonard's coast-to-coast. That, combined with Green's perfect 22 points would normally have been enough. But Dallas made a run in the last half of the fourth quarter and it wasn't until Tim Duncan took the game into his hands, and into the post, that the Spurs were able to close it out
