The Spurs started this one out lifeless, giving up a ridiculous 36 points the first quarter. The Raptors briefly had a 14 point lead, but Pop responded to that by unleashing BAYNES! The big man had a career night, achieving his highest NBA point total of 10, in just his first nine minutes of action. He finished the night with 14 points and six rebounds in 21 minutes of work, and at one point, the Spurs had outscored the Raptors 80-52 after inserting Baynes.

The starters struggled early, but Bili MiNelli and the rest of the bench were able to find their groove in this one. Once that group gets going, a game can get out of hand pretty quick. The Good Guys outscored the Raptors 65-38 in the middle two quarters and the game was effectively over. Seven Spurs finished in double figures, and in all, the bench contributed 61 points in this one.

Your Spurs improve to 16-4 as they hit the quarter season mark.
