That's what I want to see Rozier do more of.  Pick his spots and use his speed to attack the rim.

Anyone feel a Kyrie 50+ coming?  :P

Didn't he score 57 against them once while with Cleveland?

Apparently Stevens will simply never learn. He's going to ride this all bench unit to its death, regardless of how terrible it has been all season long.

For such a brilliant coach this is such an annoying issue in his coaching philosophy.

Decent 1st quarter. Road trip off to a good start.

Nice couple of baskets from Rozier. But these fouls though...

Rozier is under control tonight.

Taking advantage of the Spurs switching D when Pau ends up on him.

Brad needs to get a tech so we can get some calls!

Lead is going to go away in the 2nd.

Mainly because Brad will ride the bench almost the entire 2nd  ::)

Morris' shot selection tonight is awful so far.

This is just his regular 1st quarter substitution pattern.

Our defense went way downhill once Baynes was subbed out.  Feels like we should have a bigger lead than 5 points given how well we played offensively.

5 point lead after the 1st quarter on the road in San Antonio.

That's a good start.  The other good sign is that Kyrie is clearly feeling his shot.

He could easily end up with 40 points for the game.

It does not look like the Spurs can stop him at all.

Now we just need our 2nd unit to hold serve until the main unit gets back onto the floor.

Morris looks a bit off today.  Maybe a bit of Shane Larkin is what we need to get the 2nd unit going.
