Spurs are off to a hot start in San Antonio! Spurs post their largest end of 1st Q lead in franchise postseason history (43 Pts).

The Spurs end the first quarter leading 43-20. The best shooting percentage the Spurs have ever produced in a playoff game under Gregg Popovich was 87 percent in Game 3 of the 2014 finals against the Heat, according to ESPN Stats and Information. That was also the only other time the Spurs had hit 75 percent or better in the first quarter of a playoff game under Popovich until the club lit it up for 81.8 percent in the first quarter against the Thunder. Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge have a combined 27 points. Oklahoma City's starters have a combined 17 points.

Thunder were just a complete mess in the opening quarter, getting worked in transition, worked in the halfcourt and just worked in general. Not much went right. Especially the part about the Spurs shootout 18-22.

A little context on Kawhi Leonard's transition dunk from earlier: He's got more dunks in transition in playoffs than the rest of his teammates COMBINED per ESPN Stats and Information

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

That Kawhi Leonard dunk puts the Spurs up 17-6. The Spurs are shooting 88.9 percent from the field. ?? This is by far the best start I've seen from the Spurs since March.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

LaMarcus Aldridge is 2 of 2 right out the gate. Adams is a physical matchup for Aldridge, but one he should be able to exploit w/his moves in the post.

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

It's an advantage that usually gets very little play, but you can't deny the home crowd's impact; especially in a series between familiar foes. Support from the home crowd is definitely one of the factors in San Antonio finishing the regular season 40-1 at home.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Luke Walton's deal (5 years, $5-6 million per year, per ESPN) & Scott Brooks' deal (reportedly 5 years, $35 million) make you wonder about David Blatt's value/market if Phil Jackson chooses to make him an offer. Knicks ownership is already paying Jackson and the fired Derek Fisher a total of approximately $80 million. Given that, how much will ownership want to pay its next head coach?
