The biggest highlight might be all the internet love Dejounte Murray got...
Dejounte is the #5 trending topic in the United States.— Pounding the Rock (@poundingtherock) December 17, 2019
We know why he was trending. He stood up to Harden and threw it down on McLemore:

Dejounte finished with 16 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and a block in less than 30 minutes. He looked explosive and dynamic. He’s leading the league in average speed for a reason.
Meanwhile, Bryn Forbes was hitting threes like crazy:

Derrick White was steady, as usual. He is an elite pick & roll ball handler - 86th percentile in the NBA, the highest ranked guard on the Spurs in the play-type. Passes like this to Rudy are one of the reasons why.
He had some strong drives to the hoop, was 6-8 on free throws and 2-3 on threes for a total of 16 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists in less than 24 minutes. A great, complete game from Derrick that showcased his all-around ability.
Walking highlight Lonnie Walker IV got 10 minutes of playing time and didn’t do much of consequence. I’m sure he’ll bounce back next game.
