Some observations I came away with:

Kawhi was comfortable anywhere on the floor whether it was splitting defenders or shooting from the outside.
Danny Green had some mental errors on offense but his defense was stellar.
Parker seemed to lift himself out of his preseason funk in the second half.
The second unit was awesome without Parker in the game. Maybe teams will not be able to focus on him so much as the head of the snake this season.
Manu had only 1 turnover and slashed and finished like the Manu of yesteryear.
Belinelli has a long way to go to be effective on defense but he was a true compliment on offense. His stats don't show it because he was usually doing the 1st or 2nd pass and not the assist but he was an integral part of the setup to scoring the basket.
Patty Mills worked the paint on offense and was not just a perimeter shooter. His pesky defense was effective as well.
Diaw impressed me with his defense in the paint. He is now looking for rebounds and blocks.
Pop seems to be teaching the other players how to best utilize Splitter when he is on the court.
