Nobody took for granted that the first game for the revamped San Antonio Spurs was going to be a cakewalk because they now sported a Big five instead of a big three. And a cakewalk it was not. What it was, though, was a hard scrabble match of X’s and O’s and two teams that sported players who looked as if in mid-season form. In the end, the Spurs succumbed to a couple of ill timed errors and the will of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the entire Thunder squad that took the 112-106 win. Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs with a career regular season high of 32 points while Westbrook finished the game with 33 points.
The Spurs will be back home for their own home opener tomorrow night against the Brooklyn Nets. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your San Antonio Spurs the Friday!
