Shining a quick spotlight on three of the key players in Wednesday night's wins.
The Spurs won for the 13th time in their last 15 games in Boston, with Parker going 12-for-17 from the floor. He was 4-for-5 in the paint in the first quarter and 3-for-4 in the paint in the fourth quarter.
Parker entered the night 39-for-86 on his paint-based shot attempts this season, including 12-for-29 in his previous three games.
That continued with his 20-point effort off the bench in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
Martin made three shots on four attempts in the paint and made three more 3-pointers.
Note those two three-pointers that came from straight-on. Martin is 9-for-17 on shots from that area this season.
Maintaining anything close to that rate of success would be a huge improvement from last season, when he was 25-for-77 (32 percent) on 3-pointers from that part of the court.
Hibbert set the team single-game mark for blocked shots with 11 and George broke Reggie Miller's record for 3-pointers in a game with nine.
George was 5-for-6 on his 3-pointers from the right sideline and corner. He had made only seven 3-pointers in 18 tries from that area in his previous 12 games this season.
