Let's look at some of the plays that stood out in the overtime classic.

Timothy Theodore Duncan was phenomenal in Game 2. For his highlights, see this video.

-----------------------------------------------

Boris Diaw was much better in Game 2 than he was in Game 1. He still hasn't found his stroke from downtown (0-of-7 for the series) but he stuffed the box with a 12-9-6-2-1, committed no turnovers and played the third most minutes for the Spurs.

The big-to-big passing of the Spurs is one of my favorite parts of their game. Tiago Splitter, Danny Green and Tim Duncan make beating the hard hedge look easy.

What a move against J.J. Reddick for Kawhi Leonard: Defensive Player of the Year. Blake's reaction as Reddick is hitting the hardwood is great.

Manu Ginobili only hit two of his six attempts but both were pretty drives to the rack that ended with Gino trying to make a three-point play - he converted one of the and-ones.

Patty Mills was amazine from the end of the third (when he hit back-to-back threes in the last 34 seconds) to the end of the game. His eight overtime points were a team high for the period and the two free-throws he hit late in the fourth to send the game to overtime were huge. It's so great to see Mills play so well when it counted. He's 8-of-14 for the series and has chipped in 27 in the two games. His 18 points on Wednesday were the most he'd scored in a game since January 16th.
