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.
Here, Lonnie No Look Walker dishes a nice dime to a cutting Keita Bates-Diop:

Devin Vassell got the offensive rebound and immediately found Keldon Johnson, who went right at the hoop for the lay-in:

Quinndary Weatherspoon certainly made the most of his playing time and here displays a strong take to the hoop:

Devin Vassell has made his pullup midrange a steady part of his offensive arsenal. It’ll be a good thing to have as the rookie continues to develop his game.

There are things that go bump in the night, and Keldon Johnson is the one who bumps back.

If you missed yesterday’s early game, here are the the full game highlights:
And we’re just going to let Tim Duncan send us out on a good note:
Next up, the Spurs probably just slept in the locker room and will wake up to take on the Suns again early on May 16, 2021.
