After last night’s San Antonio Spurs comeback win to take a dominating 3-0 lead over the Los Angeles Clippers, the ABC/ESPN crew sang the Spurs’ praises and former Lakers great Magic Johnson even compared this current team to the Lakers and Celtics teams of the past.
While many were ready to give up on the Spurs after an embarrasing first quarter, the Spurs fought back from a 24-point deficit and turned it into a 10-point win.
“So many times we promote the individual,” Johnson said. “But then we leave out something that’s really unique and special, and that’s team and team basketball.”
“I saw this team carve the Clippers up by playing basic, fundamental basketball and it was beautiful to watch,” Johnson continued.
Watch the full video below for more from Johnson, Jon Barry, Chris Broussard and Michael Wilbon, who called yesterday’s game one of the greatest comebacks you will ever see.
The Spurs will look to sweep tonight at 9:30 p.m. CST and come back to San Antonio ready for the next series against either the Oklahoma City Thunder or Los Angeles Lakers.
