If you're looking for Kawhi Leonard's monster dunk, you can find multiple angles of it here.

Here's another Kawhi dunk, this one one the product of a beautifully run break. We'll get to more Manu Ginobili later, but he's a basketball master -- that pass is sublime.

Ed Davis found himself in the position of having to guard Boris Diaw one-on-one a couple of times during the game which is just a tough thing to do. It did give us some pretty Boris post moves, which are always a pleasure.

This is ridiculous.

Danny Green shot 5-of-10 from the field and 40% from deep for 12 points on the night -- let's hope we see more of that. This play just feels right, like home base, with the ball movement Spurs fans have come to expect.

Danny is such a great transition defender and is rewarded for his efforts.

I think this was my favorite play in the game. Mason Plumlee, perhaps with thoughts of a OMFB highlight jam, manages to keep Tim Duncan on his back as he flies down the floor but he seems to have forgotten to look down the floor to check for other threats. It's almost like he's aware there's a Spur right in front of him, but doesn't know who it is until it's too late. He looks, recognizes it's Whi and then his body revolts and throws the ball away. That's a fear turnover. That's next level defense.

Let's end this edition with a little Manu Ginobili highlight reel. I sure have gotten a lot of joy watching Manu play basketball over the years, but I'm not sure I've had more fun watching him play than I have this season.
