SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Spurs tied an NBA record with 12 consecutive three-pointers to start the Thursday night tournament against Oklahoma City Thunder.
That was still not enough at the end of four quarters, so the two struggled for two extra periods before the Spurs topped 154 and 147.
LaMarcus Aldridge scored 56 points in the win while Derick White grabbed 23.
Paul George and Russell Westbrook combined by 55 points in total.
Both teams played admirably, not less than 50 percent, but the Spurs had more shots.
The two meet again in Oklahoma City on Saturday.
