It took four games and a double over time, but the San Antonio Spurs got their first win of the year last night against the Timberwolves. The end result was a 129-125 victory in which Tony Parker scored a career high 55 points, the biggest 2 coming on a 20 foot buzzer beater to send the game into the 2nd OT.
The Timberwolves who also stand at 1-3 now, did everything they could to hang in there with the Spurs. They got a huge night out of Al Jefferson who scored 30, with 14 rebounds and 3 assists.
The Spurs have gotten off to slow starts in recent years only to turn it on in the final weeks. They’re certainly hoping to avoid that pattern this year. They’ll be looking for their 2nd win of the season on 11/7 when they host the Miami Heat.
San Antonio Spurs tickets are available for all 2008-2009 games.
