Tiago Splitter led six San Antonio players
in double figures with 21 points, as the Spurs took down the Oklahoma City
Thunder, 105-93, in a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Conference
on Monday at AT&T Center.

Splitter also pulled down 10 rebounds, while Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green
scored 17 and 16 points, respectively, for the Spurs, who bounced back
admirably from Friday’s 30-point setback against Portland.

Tim Duncan donated 13 points and eight rebounds, Manu Ginobili netted 12
points and Boris Diaw added 11 to help San Antonio close out a six-game home
stand at 4-2.

Kevin Durant poured in a game-high 26 points and Russell Westbrook followed
with 25 points, six boards and six assists for the Thunder, who saw their
five-game winning streak come to an end.
