The San Antonio Spurs fought off a sluggish start and pulled away in the 4th quarter with a 30-16 thumping.
“I thought our defense was much better in the fourth,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich added. “We held them to about 13 points until the very end when Ty Lawson went to the line. But our aggressiveness on defense picked up, which fueled our offense.”
The Spurs offense was almost non-existant and the three point shooting looked tired as they made only four out of sixteen attempts beyond the arc.
The Spurs next face the Phoenix Suns at home. The Suns are also hot out of the gate and have the same 3-1 record as the Spurs.
