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

Check out our player grades below!

San Antonio Spurs. TONY PARKER. C+. Tony Parker only played a little over 17 minutes in the win over the 76ers, however, he played solid in that time. Parker’s final box score including five points and five assists is not going to blow anyone away but it does not have to thanks to the margin of the Spurs win. The French guard did struggle with turnovers though, committing three during his short span on the court, which is why his grade gets a little knock down.. PG

B+. Danny Green played phenomenally for the Spurs in the win, picking up the highest plus-minus on San Antonio’s roster with a plus 33. Green also scored the ball effectively finishing with 11 points while connecting for three three-pointers. The former Tar Heel played great defensive as well, picking up three, count em’ yes three, blocked shots in only 28 minutes.. SG. San Antonio Spurs. DANNY GREEN

San Antonio Spurs. KAWHI LEONARD. B. Kawhi Leonard was good on the glass pulling down 11 rebounds but that was about all he was good at Monday night. The star forward only managed five points while struggling from the field, only converting 2-of-7 field goals. Leonard did pick up three steals in the win which seems to be the running pattern for Spurs players in this one, decent to bad offensive and great defensive.. SF

A-. The fact that Tim Duncan nearly registered a double-double in under 17 minutes should tell you how great of a player he still is. Duncan was almost one double-double closer to catching Karl Malone for fifth all-time in the category, finishing the game with 10 points and nine rebounds. Much like Parker though, Duncan failed to secure the ball, committing three turnovers in the game.. PF. San Antonio Spurs. TIM DUNCAN

A+. Matt Bonner is seriously killing it in the player grade department, this is his second “A+” game. Someone seriously needs to stuff his name in the All-Star ballot! (I’m kidding but not really.) The Red Mamba was at it again in the Spurs victory, leading San Antonio in scoring with 18 while hitting four three’s. Bonner also played in a little more than 20 minutes, making the accomplishment all the more impressive. Not much more you can ask from a player whose sole purpose is to spread the floor for his team.. C. San Antonio Spurs. MATT BONNER

A+. The San Antonio Spurs bench was really solid in the win, sans Kyle Anderson, providing more than half of the team’s total points with a combined 51 points scored by the reserves. Cory Joseph was once again on top of that list, scoring 14 points and dishing out five assists. The Spurs also got a nice boost from Aron Baynes who finished with a near double-double off the bench, 12 points and nine rebounds.The only improvement that San Antonio fans can ask for out of their reserves is better play from rookie Kyle Anderson, who struggled from the field with a 1-of-7 performance.. . .
