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 Aldridge just passed Sean Elliott for 8th on the Spurs all time rebounding list:— Jordan Howenstine (@AirlessJordan) January 6, 2021
1. Tim Duncan
2. David Robinson
3. Manu Ginobili
4. Artis Gilmore
5. Tony Parker
6. George Gervin
7. Larry Kenon
8. LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE - 2,942
9. Sean Elliott - 2,941
10. Mike Mitchell
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.
Rudy Gay is playing his 200th game for the Spurs tonight. 60th player in franchise history to reach 200 GP.— Jordan Howenstine (@AirlessJordan) January 6, 2021
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.
