The Spurs’ Fiesta-hot outside attack was the difference in against the Clippers

Paul Garcia Spurs News

After struggling from beyond the arc in their last few games, the San Antonio Spurs tied a franchise record of 20 made three pointers in a game while Patty Mills made eight for a career high. At one point, the Spurs’ elder statesman hit back-to-back-to-back-to-back (also known as four in a row) threes to help the good guys get a win against the Los Angeles Clippers. For the night, Mills scored a team high 27 points going 8 of 12 from downtown while Dejounte Murray also shot the ball well scoring 21 points on 50% shooting and 2/5 from deep.

For all 8 of Mills’s made threes tonight, see below. The great Bill Land even went 4 of 8 for “Oh Mamas!”

Dejounte Murray went coast to coast.

It was a good win for the Spurs as highlighted by their red hot shooting from three while showing the fortitude to withstand the Clippers’ multiple comebacks:
