Mike Budenholzer is in his third season coaching the Hawks and he's now 0-6 against his mentor of nearly two decades, Gregg Popovich. Let's take a look at some of the plays that helped the Spurs get a nice SEGABABA win and notch their 20th win of the season.
Let's start with Danny Green driving past Thabo Sefolosha and finding LaMarcus Aldridge under the basket.
LaMarcus returns the favor on the next scoring possession for the Spurs and Danny hits his first three of the game. He finished 2-of-3 from deep and 4-of-8 from the field.
All five Hawks on the court are closer to the ball as it comes off of the rim, but Kawhi Leonard is able to grab his miss and throw it down.
Manu Ginobili continues his great season (he's currently posting his second best eFG% of his career) and put up 17 points on seven shots in just 18 minutes and 35 seconds on the floor. Great clock awareness from Patty Mills to know that he could swing it once more to an open Manu.
Tim Duncan isn't doing too much scoring these days but I love watching the big man play. Next game spend a quarter just watching Tim play, he just does every little thing right -- like trail in transition and make excellent entry passes.
Jonathon Simmons has averaged 19.2 minutes over the last four Spurs games and he's put up 10 points, 3.3 boards and 1.8 assists per game in that stretch with a plus/minus of +14.3. Danny Green's line over that span: 19.8 minutes, 6 points, 1.8 boards and 1 assist.
Watch Tiago Splitter's reaction as the wily Argentine beats Tiago's doppelganger.
Let's end this edition with a dirty move from Kawhi Leonard to create a wide-open, step-back triple.
