The Spurs won their eighth straight on Monday after defeating the Brooklyn Nets 106-79. The win marks the 10th this season that Spurs have won by more than 25+–most in franchise history.
The Good: LaMarcus Aldridge started off strong making his first five shots, on his way to 12-of-17 from the floor. He finished with 25 points and 11 rebounds to lead San Antonio. Kawhi Leonard added 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting. Spurs continue to shoot the ball well as they finished with hitting 53 percent of their shots. They assisted on 27 of their 44 made baskets.
Spurs turned up the heat in the second half on both side of the ball as they outscored the Nets 61-41.
The Bad: Turnovers are still an issue. There were times in the first half where players were not on the same page. Tony Parker drove down the lane and Danny Green had moved from his spot from behind the 3-point line, led to a Parker turnover. Spurs had 12 turnovers in the game.
X-Factor: Aldridge played one heck of a game. It is safe to say that he is back to form. Over his last five games, Aldridge is averaging 20.4 points, 10.4 rebounds and shooting 57.8 percent making 44-of-76.
