The three ball was falling for the Aussie as the Spurs squeaked past the Clippers in Los Angeles.

The Spurs tied a franchise record last night hitting 20 shots from beyond the arc. The last time the Silver & Black scored that well from downtown was Christmas Eve 2012 against the Dallas Mavericks.

At the forefront was Patty Mills who scored eight of the twenty.

The eight 3-balls were a career high for FIBA Patty, who scored 13 points in the first quarter.

Another monumental night for the Spurs as LaMarcus Aldridge passes Fox Sports Southwest play-by-play analyst and Memorial Day Miracle shooter Sean Elliott in Spurs all-time franchise rebounding:

LaMarcus ended the night with six rebounds to his fourteen points and two assists. Not bad for the big man’s return after missing the last three games with a knee injury.

And the final note of the night was Rudy Gay playing is 200th game with the Spurs, a feat only matched by fifty-nine other players.

Quite a noteworthy night for the team’s elder statesmen.

The Spurs are off tonight, but stay in Los Angles to play the third meeting against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.
