Both Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard ended up with double-doubles in the game, with Duncan ending up with 12 points and 16 rebounds and Leonard scoring 22 and grabbing 10 boards. Point guard Tony Parker made 11 of his 16 field goal attempts to score a game-high 25 points. Manu Ginobili came off of the bench for the Spurs to score 13 points and dish out six assists in the win.
Reserve small forward Xavier Henry was able to put up a team-high 24 points, while fellow bench player Robert Sacre was able to grab 11 rebounds for the Lakers. Pau Gasol didn't have his best shooting night, but he did grab 10 rebounds and get six assists in the game to go along with his 22 points.
