After losing a heartbreaker to the Dallas Mavericks on New Year's Eve, the San Antonio Spurs looked to start 2023 off right with a victory in Brooklyn. However, the Nets were on a mission from start to finish. The Spurs never led in a wire-to-wire loss, 139-103. Everyone on the Spurs got playing time and filled up the box score except Doug McDermott who shot 0 for 4 from the field but chipped in four rebounds and an assist.

Surprise, surprise. Keldon Johnson led the Spurs in scoring with 22 points. He also chipped in four rebounds, an assist, and a block.

Here he comes swooping in on the finish.

He also had a lot of tough finishes in this game, with this one over Kevin Durant.

Here he blocked Kyrie Irving’s shot and found Devin Vassell on the other end for a three-ball.

Tre Jones got the Spurs on the board with this crispy floater. He finished with six points, seven assists, a rebound, and two steals.

Jeremy Sochan got Ben Simmons to bite on the pump fake for the and-one. He finished with five points, three rebounds, an assist, and a steal.

Vassell finished with 14 points, three assists, and two rebounds with a thrice of threes including this one.

Malaki Branham found Sochan in the paint for the tough finish over Irving. Malaki finished with nine pints, three assists, and two rebounds.

Josh Richardson euro-stepped his way for an east layup over TJ Warren. He finished with 11 points, four rebounds, and three assists.

Here’s another clean transition three by Devin.

J-Rich knows how to stroke it from deep as well.

Absolutely love this play. Tre put a nice move on Durant and finished over both him and Irving.

Jakob Poeltl with one of the easiest dunks of his life. Jakob finished with 6 points, 11 rebounds (6 Off/5 Def), two assists, a steal, and a block.

Romeo Langford had maybe the highlight of the night for the Spurs. After getting the steal on Day’Ron Sharpe, he finished the fastbreak on the other end with a ferocious one-handed slam. He finished with eight points, three rebounds, and a steal.

And finally, here are the full game highlights.
