It was big night not only for Spurs, points-wise, it was also a big night for future Hall-of-Famer Tim Duncan who recorded his 14,000th rebound, the 11th player in NBA history to do so.

San Antonio was great offensively in the game scoring 29 or more points in three out of the four quarters.

The Spurs numbers reflected their hot offensive game as they shot 49.5% from the field and a great 40% from three. San Antonio also tied their season-low for turnovers with eight.

Now that the game is over, we have post-game grades for key Spurs players in the San Antonio Golden State game!

Check out our player grades below!

A+. Tony Parker starts out our post-game grades with a bang, picking up an “A+.” Parker played great for the Spurs scoring 28 points and dishing seven dimes (assists) while shooting an efficient 11-of-17 from the field. The four-time champion also went 2-for-2 from deep and 4-of-4 from the charity stripe. Did we also mention he committed only one turnover and helped force Stephen Curry into an 0-of-7 shooting night from three?. PG. San Antonio Spurs. TONY PARKER

SG. San Antonio Spurs. DANNY GREEN. D+. Danny Green was one of the few Spurs players who didn’t have a good game. Green struggled to shoot the ball, 4-of-12 from the field, 1-of-7 from three, and struggled to contain his matchup. Klay Thompson, his defensive assignment, completely outplayed the former Tar Heel. Thompson netted 29 points on an outstanding 9-of-17 from the field. The best part, or worst part if you’re Green, the Splash brother went 5-of-6 from three.

Kawhi Leonard has been tremendous during this back-to-back set for the Spurs. Leonard was once again on point scoring 19 points and grabbing six rebounds. The former San Diego State University star also picked up two three’s while shooting 7-of-11 from the field. Leonard is averaging 22.5 points and 8.0 rebounds over his last two games. Well done sir!. SF. San Antonio Spurs. KAWHI LEONARD. A

TIM DUNCAN. A. First, let me start by saying it would be unfair to give Tim Duncan anything less than an “A” simply because he recorded his 14,000th rebound, the 11th player to do so in NBA history and only of two active players to grab that many rebounds. The fact that Duncan also played pretty well in the game is just icing on the cake. The Big Fundamental put in another double-double with 12 points and 13 rebounds. He is now only 12 double-doubles away from tying Karl Malone for fifth most double-doubles all-time. What more can you ask for?. PF. San Antonio Spurs

B. Matt Bonner did everything Spurs fans can ask for last night. The Red Mamba made the most of his start finishing the game with five points and five rebounds, also hitting a three in the process. That’s honestly pretty much it for the Bonner story…. C. San Antonio Spurs. MATT BONNER

. SAN ANTONIO SPURS BENCH. A+. The San Antonio Spurs bench came to play tonight. The Spurs bench outscored the Warriors bench 40-20. San Antonio also finished the game with two of their reserves in double figures, Manu Ginobili and a player who has come to be called Contract Co Jo. Ginobili led all bench players with 17 points on 7-of-17 shooting while Cory Joseph added 11 in another great performance. The Spurs also got eight points, six rebounds, and four assists out of Boris Diaw and four points out of Aron Baynes.
