The Good: San Antonio bounced back from their shooting debacle on Monday against the Indiana Pacers where they lost 99-91. In that game they shot 35.4-percent from the floor. On Tuesday, the Spurs made 47-of-85 from the floor for 55.3-percent shooting. Andre Miller filled in for Tony Parker to get the nod at point guard for the team and he played about as good as you would of expected. Miller finished with 13 points and had five assists in 25 minutes. LaMarcus Aldridge was a man on a mission. He scored 14 of his 29 points in the first quarter. The Timberwolves had no answer for the All-Star power forward.
The Bad: 3-point shooting was nonexistent Tuesday. The Spurs were 4-of-19 from beyond the arc for 21.1-percent for the game. Over their last two, they have made just eight of their 45 attempts.
Quote of the Night: Minnesota’s Karl-Anthony Towns on Miller’s fit with the Spurs: “You’re talking about one of the smartest teams in the NBA and you have one of the smartest players to ever play this game implemented into that offense and defense. It was a seamless fit for him.”
