Although the Hawks have the best record in the East, they were no match for the Spurs, falling behind by as many as 20 points in the first quarter.
San Antonio took advantage of that early lead and used their experience to maintain the deficit, never allowing Atlanta to take the lead in this game.
Kawhi Leonard was a big reason for the Spurs win, coming awfully close to a triple-double with 20 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists. Tim Duncan also flirted with a triple-double, 12 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists.
For the Hawks, it was about the valiant effort by back-up Dennis Schroder. With the Atlanta starters struggling for the most part, Schroder came off the bench to provide some much needed points to keep the gap from growing even larger. The German point guard was good for the Hawks, providing 18 points and five assists.
