It looks like the San Antonio Spurs are back in business.
They improved to 11-3 since Feb. 27 with a 130-91 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. San Antonio’s 130 points were a season high.
The Thunder fell to 18-11 when Russell Westbrook plays and Durant doesn’t, but it’s worth noting that’s split up as 13-1 against sub-.500 teams and 5-11 versus teams with recirds of .500 or better.
The Spurs were a late Thunder 3-pointer away from matching their largest margin of victory under Gregg Popovich (the mark remains a 42-point win against the Sacramento Kings during the 1997-98 season).
San Antonio is now 15-5 when their regular starting lineup plays (Tony Parker, Danny Green,Kawhi Leonard, Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter).
How they’re winning: Parker in the paint The Spurs are rolling because their offense is clicking. All five of their starters shot 50 percent or better from the field on Wednesday. San Antonio shot 58 percent from the field, the second time in 11 days that they shot the ball that well and the third-best that they’ve shot from the field this season.
The Spurs are averaging 112.4 points per game during this 14-game run, 12 points better than what they averaged prior to the start of this stretch. They rank first in the league in points per game, offensive efficiency and assist-to-turnover ratio since Feb. 27.
When the Spurs made at least two passes on a possession on Wednesday, they shot 65 percent from the field and had an assist to turnover ratio of 24-to-4.
One of the keys to the Spurs' recent success was on display on Wednesday.
Tony Parker scored 10 of his game-high 21 points in the paint. He has scored at least 10 points in the paint seven times this month. He had scored 10 or more only nine times all season entering March.
Parker averaged 5.8 points and 52 percent shooting in the paint this season through the end of February. In 12 games this month, he’s averaging 9.8 points and shooting 66 percent in the paint.
Elias Sports Bureau Stat of the Night The Spurs were the only home team to win on Wednesday. The 12-1 record by road teams is an NBA best on a single day with a minimum of 10 games played.
