The San Antonio Spurs traveled to Oklahoma City for their second matchup against the Thunder this season. This game, however, went the Thunder’s way as they were able to pick up the victory with a score of 90-87.
Without LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gay, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Anderson (injured in second half) the Spurs fought until the waning moments of the game.
But with a depleted roster, the Spurs couldn't mange the win.
Now let's look at who shined and who didn't tonight versus the Thunder.
During their last meeting with the Thunder, Davis Bertans was a huge reason the Spurs were able to make the comeback and pick up the win. Tonight was no different.
Bertans matched his career-high with 16 points and also added four rebounds during the contest. 12 of his 16 points came from beyond the arc.
During the third, Bertans was able to catch fire for the Spurs. But during the fourth, he was not able to hit the three that would matter the most.
Nonetheless, it was great to see Bertans come out and put up great numbers. Playing 29 minutes tonight, he is proving to be a great asset for the Spurs’ rotation this season.
Only scoring five points on 2-11 shooting, Forbes seemed to never get his shot going down.
The young player is looked at to be able to score when the Spurs need him to. And if he is playing over 30 minutes in a game, you expect him to be able to score more than just five points.
The Spurs face off against the Detroit Pistons on Monday.
