Dejounte said it’s all about Spurs playing w/confidence: “The confidence thing’s everything, especially in this league. It’s a kill or be killed league, so your confidence has to be there. I believe in a lot of these guys. I’ve seen them work. It’s just about putting it together” – 12:07 AM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Bradley Beal on the Wizards’ offense: “We’re still learning a lot of stuff on the fly.”
With half of the roster overturned and a new coaching staff with already limited amounts of practice, there is still a ways to go for Washington to fully unlock Wes Unseld Jr.’s offense. – 12:04 AM

First bucket as a Spur for @Vontae__15!

The Wizards scored 0 fast break points tonight.
That’s a season best for the Spurs’ defense. – 11:21 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs are now 5-1 when holding their opponent below 100 points in a game.
That’s 83% of their wins from lockdown defensive nights. – 11:18 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Pop on Lonnie’s 2nd half defense vs. Beal:
“Lonnie was really important down the stretch for us. We challenged him and told him he had Bradley, and he’s got to just do his best, stay down on him. He’s smart. I thought he did an excellent job.” – 11:18 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“I’m not surprised. That’s the kind of player he’s capable of being.” – Dejounte Murray on not being surprised by Derrick White’s season high 24 points tonight. – 11:12 PM

The Wizards close out their longest road trip yet with a 116-99 loss to the Spurs. That extends their losing streak in San Antonio to 22 games — haven’t won here since 1999. – 11:04 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Pop: “It’s great having Jakob back because he does so many good things, but Thaddeus was fantastic. Derrick is back to being Derrick White that we all remember, and that’s been a big plus for us…DJ has continued to do what he’s done all season, playing fantastically.” 2/2 – 11:03 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Some other record updates. The Spurs improve to…

Spurs ended up winning the paint by 16 after that was an area Washington had control of in the first half pic.twitter.com/5tB54qGDoN10:58 PM

Matthew Tynan @Matthew_Tynan
Should be noted: Washington only had six turnovers tonight, so this wasn’t a game where the Spurs generated a bunch of offense off loose balls and transition, which is generally where the spark comes from for them. They executed really well in the half-court. – 10:57 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“Just try to make him work.” – Derrick White on guarding Bradley Beal in the first half.
Like Coach Pop said as well, the Spurs looked to Lonnie to guard Beal in the second half. – 10:57 PM

In sign of growth, Spurs turned quickly toward Washington after short celebration following Boston win.
“We haven’t responded well to wins all year,” D White said. “We have to wash this out with a shower and get ready for a good Wizards team on Monday.”
Mission accomplished. – 10:43 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs finish off Wizards 116-99 by playing a superb final quarter and a half, claiming their first winning streak of the season at two games. – 10:43 PM

Matthew Tynan @Matthew_Tynan
Spurs games this season have been full of dramatic ebbs and flows. Tonight was about as consistent and steady as they’ve looked through a full game against a good team all year. Limited mistakes, made shots without hitting any of those droughts that have often kicked their asses. – 10:39 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
This game’s all but officially over (as it’s been for a couple of minutes now). Wes Unseld Jr. just called timeout with San Antonio ahead 112-96 with 1:46 to play. – 10:38 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Man. The Wizards now trail the Spurs by 10 in the fourth quarter. It’s been 22 years since they won in San Antonio and it’s not looking good once again, at least at the moment. – 10:20 PM

Spurs have flipped a 10-point deficit in the third quarter into a 10-point lead early in the fourth. Still 9:37 to play. – 10:19 PM

love little intricacies of the game like this:
1) Keldon Johnson thinks he has a clean block of Kuzma’s shot
2) Demands his coaching staff to initiate a review
3) An assistant makes the judge & jury “dont challenge it” decision
4) Keldon pissed off

Wizards make 10.4 threes per game (29th) but are best in league in limiting opp 3PT makes (10.1, 1st).
So despite being a low volume 3PT makes they win the 3PT line because they take away 3s from the opponent.
