The Spurs were down by as much as 19 points, James Harden scored early and went to finished 61 points in the game. Lamarcus Aldridge can’t found his shot early and even Rudy Gay had worst game which lead to some turnover.
Visiting spurs are ready to steal the game, until the momentum changed when an offensive foul called to Demar Derozan because he slightly hit the beard if James Harden. This may sound bias, since that Harden scored 13 consecutive points there were some case that even the official can’t find any foul for Derozan.
Jakob Poeltl had his moments in third quarter were he had two putback in consecutive possessions before the third end and tied the score at 81. Lonnie Walker IV had quality time in second quarter, scored 4 points 1 rebound, 1 steal and an assist.
The Spurs almost completed the comeback with the defense were Aldridge and Bertans played well in the paint and Derrick White shadow was with James Harden. Even Spurs is on its way lossing, they seems ready whoever they faces in playoffs. Where they played top teams in West.
Popovich should get back Jakob Poeltl in starting five, just to play defensively. In this game Harden dominated offensively right from the start were they build 12 point lead. Spurs back to back lost after the nine game winning streak and now back to eight place..
