The Spurs never led in the contest but in the 3rd quarter, the silver and black came close several times. Keldon Johnson was a last-minute scratch he sat out with ankle soreness, so Devin Vassell led the charge. Vassell had tied his career high 29 points by the final buzzer, but without a doubt, this dunk from Sochan was the play of the game.
