Spurs Playbook: Spurs repeatedly victimize Vince Carter

Whether it's a lack of effort or being flat out clueless, Vice Carter looked lost defensively in Game 2. The Spurs cruised to another sound victory in Game 2 on Tuesday night, posting an effective field goal percentage of 54% and shooting 52.9% from three. San Antonio certainly deserves credit for finding the open man and taking high percentage shots.

The Spurs took advantage of Vince Carter all game as he consistently gambled, tried to double team, was out of help position, and was just...

The Grindfather Drains The Three!

Despite some injuries, Tony Allen decided to give it a try tonight. And he has definitely contributed so far. At halftime, Tony Allen is 2-4 from the field for 5 points, including this shot from beyond the arc. Thanks to a timely pass from Vince Carter, Allen was open to sink the three pointer.

And he's just 849 points away from the top. Last night, during the Raptors game against the New York Knicks, DeMar DeRozan made a bit of history. After scoring 27 points on 12-of-17 shooting, and fending off a late Knicks rally, DeRozan moved into the number two spot on the Raptors all-time scoring list. The man he passed was none other than Vince Carter. With a total of 9,426, DeRozan is now just 849 points behind the Raptors' all-time leading scorer, Chris Bosh.
