At Chesapeake Energy Arena on Tuesday night, the Thunder fell to the San Antonio Spurs, 113-88, and it was a rough affair for the team from the very start. It was a low-scoring start to the game, as San Antonio held a 7-5 lead with 7:05 left in the first quarter, but the Thunder’s offense failed to produce while the Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard and company heated up, closing the period on a 22-5 run. "They put on a clinic and we didn't respond well," Head Coach Scott Brooks said. "Tonight's game, we didn't have it, but it was more them. They're a very good basketball team. They're healthy and playing at a very high level." "They came out and jumped on us from the get go," point guard Russell Westbrook said. "We just weren't ready for it, but we have another game on Friday and we have to get ready for that one." NBA.com

Jeff: So about Marco’s nearly naked photo, what did you say to him? Danilo Gallinari: (laughing) It was a fun thing to do, he had a lot of fun. He was just saying it still looks ugly even though it was on a GQ cover. I was just kidding with him. I’m happy for him because when he plays basketball, he has a chance to have fun doing that kind of stuff. It was great. And hopefully they didn’t do a lot of Photoshop because his body looks pretty different. ProjectSpurs.com

The tightness in starting forward Tiago Splitter’s right calf isn’t serious, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich says, but the injury could still keep him out for at least a week, including a critical home-and-home set with Southwest Division rival Houston. “There’s some edema and some stuff in there,” said Popovich, speaking less than two hour before tipoff of Sunday’s home game with Golden State. “It’s not real serious, but enough to keep him out a while. Hopefully we’ll get him back. He’s part of why we’ve played well lately, a big part of it. “But he’ll miss tonight, he’ll probably miss (Oklahoma) City and Houston back-to-back, I’d imagine. I don’t want lose him. No matter who we end up playing (in the playoffs), he’s a big part of that.” San Antonio Express-News
