The balletic Boris Diaw, pirouetting and toe-tapping through the lane for an easy two.

Point-forward Boris, superhero Kawhi Leonard.

Let's focus on some defense. Rasual Butler does a great job in transition, communicating with Patty Mills and putting up a great contest. The veteran seems to be fitting into a solid role off the bench for the good guys.

Danny Green really has a knack for making great plays in transition, rarely committing fouls as he contests shots near the rim, instead using patience, timing and sometimes some guessing to make it as tough as possible for the offensive player. Tony Parker (highlight video coming soon) and Danny team up and the Spurs get one of their 13 blocks.

Let's end this edition with one more play from Danny, who hit 40% of his threes for the second straight game, disrupting the opposition. For what it's worth, Danny led the team with a +22 for the night.

Tony Parker played his best game of the season and deserves his own post. Stay tuned.
