There was a nice crowd at the game, plenty of energy. It was good to see TP back in action – he got a nice reception when he was introduced in the starting lineup. Even though Duncan had some trouble at times with his shots, he looked really sharp on the boards and around the rim. He had 16 rebounds, I think Splitter had 10 and Kawhi had 8. Kawhi was intense this game, good defense and dead eye shots from the corner (The Spurs need to sign him to an extension soon). Manu looked really flat until the 4th quarter; in fact, I think he got his first basket in the 4th, a layup. We had a really bad defensive lapse at the end of the 4th quarter, allowing Williams to hit the 3 to tie and drive the game into overtime. All in all, glad we bagged this one.
