Whenever the Spurs blow out their opponent it makes writing a recap a little tougher. There's not much to breakdown from the win tonight, and it's Friday night, so let's make this quick and see what else is going on tonight. The Spurs completely dominated this game. Just a simple glance at a basic box-score would show you much of what you needed to know about the game. The Spurs shot 49% and held the Hawks to 38%. The Spurs out-rebounded Atlanta 54-36, though I was surprised to see that the Spurs only missed four less shots than the Hawks. 22 turnovers will do that. The Hawks contributed 20 of their own to the turnover party, and this was a sloppy game at times. Think about this for a second. The Spurs turned the ball over 22 times and won by 26 points. Last time these teams played, Coach Budenholzer made his first return to the AT&T Center since taking the head job in Atlanta. That game was a thriller that ended with Tim Duncan hitting a game-winning jumper and finishing the night with 23 points and 21 rebounds. The game tonight wasn't as good as the first one, but Tim Duncan was phenomenal once again. He finished the game with 17 points, 16 rebounds, and four blocks in just 27 minutes. You guys know how I feel about Tim Duncan. The Ageless One continues to impress.
