The Spurs made mistakes, missed shots and looked lost at times offensively, yet Gregg Popovich was pleased. Overcoming a season-high 23 turnovers with a strong defensive showing kept the Spurs from getting into real trouble with their coach and the Atlanta Hawks.
Kawhi Leonard scored 31 points in his return from a concussion, and San Antonio tied Golden State for the NBA’s best record with a 107-99 victory Monday night. “I was really pleased that they continue to guard and hustle the way they did despite being sloppy with the ball,” Popovich said.
