The San Antonio Spurs go winless in a back-to-back against New York and Brooklyn to finish out an ugly Rodeo Road Trip.
The San Antonio Spurs couldn’t have been happy with their poor performance against the Knicks on Sunday and should’ve been looking to bounce back in a major way on the second night of a back-to-back in Brooklyn.
However, the Spurs couldn’t get their shots to fall and Brooklyn’s three-point barrage buried San Antonio on the final night of an eight-game road trip.
The Spurs shot just 38% in the first quarter and it didn’t get much better from there as they would finish 35-of-95 from the floor (37%).
While the Nets weren’t scorching hot from deep, they did hit 19 of their 50 three-point attempts which gave them a 45-point advantage in that category against a Spurs team that went 4-for-24 from three.

Unfortunately, Rudy Gay was the only other Spur to score double-digits by chipping in with 13 points.
Derrick White was also unable to get anything to fall going 3-of-10, but he did provide six rebounds and 4 assists.
