The San Antonio Spurs rebounded from their home opening loss by taking their game to Indianapolis against the Pacers. For two players, Indiana was where they grew up.
Both Romeo Langford and Blake Wesley played high school and college ball in the Hoosier State, where the former is still the fourth highest scorer in Indiana history.

Additionally, Doug McDermott is a former Pacer and as Sean Elliott points out, players always want to give it to their former team.
The Spurs looked to have a landslide in the making but late game frustrations took it down to the wire, reminding fans that the young core is a work in progress and still has a long way to go.
