That was a pretty epic beatdown. Then again, it was against the Clippers.. and Kaman only played 20 minutes.

Box Score

This one was in the bag from the mid-first quarter on. Instead of blathering on endlessly about it, I'll concentrate on a few good performances.

George Hill - Cubits continues to impress, putting up a double-double with 14 points, 11 assists, and a steal. And ZERO turnovers... that's pretty incredible for a starting PG. George also led the team in +/- at +23.

Richard Jefferson - 18 points(8-14 shooting) and 9 rebounds nearly led RJ to join George in the double-double club. He had a couple of ugly turnovers, but I'll take this kind of effort from RJ any day of the week, as he led the team in rebounding for the 3rd time in the last 4 games. I love the way he's attacking the boards lately.

Matt Bonner - The Red Rocket shot the ball with precision today, going 8-9 from the field and 5-6 from long range, finishing with 21 points to lead the team in scoring.

Cedric Jackson - The Entertainer had another pretty good outing, notching 4 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks in his 15 minutes on the floor. He also had 2 turnovers, but one of them was a miscommunication between he and Blair which probably had to do with his lack of system knowledge. Good outing - I like this kid a lot.

Ian Mahinmi - I called him dumb in the game thread, but he played well in his limited minutes, getting 7 points, 3 boards and a block in 8 minutes.

Manu Ginobili - Manu had a great shooting night, going 6-9 from the field for 14 points, to go with 6 assists, 3 boards and 2 steals.

DeJuan Blair - The Beast quietly gathered 8 boards and 8 points on 50% shooting.

Perhaps the best stat of the night was the fact that Tim Duncan played all of 13 minutes and 19 seconds. May the rest do wonders for him.
