With four key players sitting out, the Spurs turned to other players but were simply outmatched. Keldon Johnson and Gorgui Dieng led the team in scoring as each player scored 18 for the night. Drew Eubanks notched his 3rd double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 rebounds while Quinndary Weatherspoon, playing his most significant minutes of the season, poured in 13 points of his own. The good guys are getting primed for the play-in, and here’s hoping the extra rest and the good vibes from Connecticut carry them through.
