The good guys battled in their second straight overtime game — this time against the short-handed Indianapolis Pacers — and walked away with another tough loss. DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs with 25 points including a hot 13 for 15 from the charity stripe. Keldon Johnson and Dejounted Murray both had 20 points each while Johnson and Jakob Poeltl both notched double-doubles in points and rebounds (Johnson with 10 boards and Poeltl had 14 points and 13 boards).
Keldon Johnson joins some impressive company in his first 60 career games:

Rudy Gay gets buckets. This particular bucket that he got had some fire behind it:
