The Nets played the Spurs tough in the first half, but San Antonio was able to use a 28-18 third quarter to pull away and beat New Jersey 97-85.
Brook Lopez had his best game in weeks, scoring 28 points on 10-17 shooting, grabbing 11 rebounds and blocking 3 shots before fouling out late in the fourth quarter.
Yi Jianlian on the other hand wasn’t afraid to shoot, but he probably should have practiced more restraint, going 4-17 from the field and scoring 16 points. He did do a good job of getting to the rim and drawing fouls, shooting 10 free throws (making 8).
Courtney Lee followed up his great night on Friday with a dud, scoring 4 points on 2-11 shooting.
Tim Duncan is insane, scoring 14 points and grabbing 17 rebounds in 27 minutes. He sat most of the fourth quarter with Tony Parker, who struggled from the field, scoring 8 points on 3-12 shooting.
Manu Ginobli scored 21 points, including 2 on a rim shaking dunk towards the end of the third quarter.
Nets were outrebounded 48-35, but only turned the ball over 6 times.
