The San Antonio Spurs unleashed points, on a Monday night no less, behind a barrage of two pointers. Yes, the highest scoring NBA game of this season saw 12 total three-point shots made (6 apiece for the Spurs and the Washington Wizards). The good guys had 7 different players score in the double digits and might have had 8 if not for the unfortunate injury to Derrick White. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 37 points and handed out 10 assists (tying a career-high for double-doubles with 12), while Dejounte Murray also notched a double-double with 25 points and a career-high 17 rebounds.

DeRozan did not take a three-point shot this game, but here he got three the old fashion way: through grit and grind.
If you have ever wondered what a Tony Parker teardrop and a Duncan bank shot looked like combined together, Dejounte Murray melded the two on this running window bouncer:
Drew Eubanks unleashed the old school sky hook once again. He’s bringing something back, and I want to say it’s more cowbells.
“Get over here!” Keldon Johnson has been watching the new Mortal Kombat and channeling his inner finishing move:
One of these scores at the end of this high scoring 1st quarter is my age, but I’ll just say I hope we all live to be as old as the score the Spurs totaled on Monday night against the Wizards:
Patty Mills had a nice no-look pass to a charging DeMar DeRozan who threw it down with authoritah:
That throw down was so nice, it’s worth seeing it again from a different angle:
And last but never least, the full game highlights:
Next up, the Spurs head south to take on the Miami Heat on Wednesday, April 28, 2021.
