|Paul Millsap, PF 36 MIN | 10-15 FG | 4-6 FT | 12 REB | 5 AST | 24 PTS | +11
A vintage Paul Millsap game. On the offensive side, his twisting, contorting layups, jumpers, and floaters answered every run the Spurs made. He also picked up the key rebound at the end of the game, leading to the final shot. Stay forever, Paul.
|Al Jefferson, C 35 MIN | 10-18 FG | 1-1 FT | 4 REB | 4 AST | 21 PTS | -1
Jefferson had his hands full guarding Tim Duncan and when he gave up three quick baskets in the first quarter, it looked like it was going to be a long night. Credit to Al for making things difficult for Duncan for the rest of the game.
|Mo Williams, PG 32 MIN | 3-9 FG | 1-2 FT | 3 REB | 4 AST | 8 PTS | +7
“No no no no no YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS”
|Randy Foye, PG 32 MIN | 5-10 FG | 0-1 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 13 PTS | -1
In the moments when it seemed like the Spurs were going to run away with things in the first quarter, Foye’s threes kept the Jazz within distance.
|Gordon Hayward, SG 29 MIN | 7-14 FG | 1-1 FT | 7 REB | 6 AST | 19 PTS | +13
Gordon stepped up in fourth quarter and hit two crucial threes (and 4-6 overall). He also had 5 rebounds in the fourth. It was fun to watch him battle with Manu Ginobili–the reason he chose to wear #20.
“It was amazing,” said Millsap, who grabbed the key offensive rebound after Williams’ first miss. ‘It was a big win for us, a big win for our fans, a big win for our whole organization.’” [link]
Had a nice visit with John Stockton on this 12-12-12. Thanked him for all he’s done for our family, organization and community.
