While the San Antonio Spurs’ camouflage uniforms, worn for military celebration night, may not have had many proponents, it’s hard to argue with a win.
The Spurs hosted the Washington Wizards on a one-game home stand and their recent trend of big wins didn’t end on the East coast, as the Spurs finished off the Wizards early in a 92-79 victory, good enough for their sixth straight win.
The Spurs, as has been the case lately, got out on a quick run, scoring early and often. Kawhi Leonard knocked down a jumper and two straight three-pointers for an early 8-0 run.
While the Spurs were scoring at a blistering pace, the Wizards shot an anemic 2-for-12 from the field midway through the first quarter and finished the quarter shooting at a 30 percent clip to the Spurs’ 52 percent.
“We couldn’t make a shot. We moved the ball. We had nobody,” Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. “We stayed with it, kept fighting, kept playing, tried to continue to move it along and get somebody going.”no comments
