SAN ANTONIO (AP) While the San Antonio Spurs search for their identity as a team, Rudy Gay is showing that he has returned to form.
Gay had 21 points and LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan each added 20 as San Antonio defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 123-96 on Monday night.
"I think we're starting to figure out each other more than anything," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Who's got the mismatches out there. Usually your best players look for those mismatches and our guys are starting to figure that out. Defensively, we've got a little bit more rhyme and reason to what we're doing and it's shown in this homestand. I'm pleased with the progress (but) we still have a long way to go."
