The San Antonio Spurs snapped their two-game losing streak last night with a win against the Memphis Grizzlies, and one of their plays of the game came from an unlikely source in Kyle Anderson.
The Spurs narrowly defeated the Grizzlies 100-98 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio on Monday night. However, it was Memphis' Marc Gasol that was the best player on the court, as he had a double-double outing with 23 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal, while also being 8-of-13 from the field.
San Antonio's best player on the night was Tony Parker, as he had 23 points, four assists, a steal, and he was 10-of-14 from the field. Spurs' Anderson also had the best assist in the game, which was also probably the best assist across the NBA that night as well.
With just under nine minutes to go in the fourth quarter and with the Spurs up by one, the ball was bouncing towards the Grizzlies' base line and out of bounds when the forward kept it in play by flinging the ball towards the basket before he went out of bounds.
Luck or pure skill then came into play, as Anderson's save managed to find his teammate, Davis Bertans, near the rim of the basket who slammed it home to complete the unbelievable alley-oop and play of the game. As you can see in the video below, San Antonio's bench absolutely loved the play.
The 24-year-old ended up finishing the night with 11 points, two rebounds, four assists, five steals, and he was 3-of-5 from the field after 27 minutes on the court.
San Antonio is currently in the sixth seed spot in the Western Conference and are in danger of falling out of playoff contention if they are not careful, which is why this win on Monday night was so important for the franchise and their season.
The Spurs will look to continue their winning ways and keep their playoff goals alive when they visit Oakland on Thursday night later this week to play against the current NBA Champions, the Golden State Warriors.News Now - Sport News
