The defeat snapped a three-game win streak for San Antonio dating back to March 10 -- the final game before the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the season. DeMar DeRozan paced the Spurs with 30 points, while Rudy Gay added a season-high 24, Derrick White had 20 and Keldon Johnson contributed a career-best 15 points in the loss. Dejounte Murray hit for 13 for San Antonio, which trailed by as many as 14 points in the fourth quarter and rallied to lead late before running out of steam.
Simmons got himself into foul trouble early against the Spurs, so his 25 minutes of playing time limited the amount of opportunities Shake and Simmons shared on the court (it didn’t help that Shake also only played 25 minutes). But even in that limited amount of playing time, Simmons and Milton displayed a willingness to play off of each other, specifically in the pick and roll. By my count, the duo dialed up a pick and roll on four occasions against San Antonio.
