Can the Silver and Black overcome a Western Conference contender to extend their winning streak to a season-high three games?
The Spurs squeaked out a late victory in a back-and-forth battle with a talented Celtics ball club, overcoming a second-half surge from Boston and their dynamic duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. San Antonio squandered a 14-point lead but bounced back down the stretch behind some clutch contributions from the trio of Keldon Johnson, Dejounte Murray, and DeMar DeRozan.
Keldon stuffed home a rim-rocker that tied up the game and gave the Silver and Black all the momentum. DeRozan knocked down a go-ahead mid-range jumper with less than a minute remaining in regulation a few moments later. And Dejounte sealed the deal with his patented poke away slam on the ensuing possession. Together the trio combined for 50 points and shouldered the load in crunch time.
