The San Antonio Spurs hosted the Chicago Bulls on March. 6,Wednesday night, at the AT&T center in San Antonio. For Spurs' fans, however, the team that took the floor in the first half, was not the team they were accustom to seeing. With that said, the Spurs were still able to beat the Bulls 101-83.

 The first play of the game, Tim Duncan, with an assist from Danny Green, banked a jump shot to give the Spurs an early lead. The Spurs maintained this lead until about halfway through the first quarter, when the Bulls went on a 15-1 run that began with a turnover by Duncan.

The remainder of the first half was punctuated by the groans of Spurs fans filling the building as the Spurs allowed turnover after turnover. When the halftime buzzer sounded, the Spurs had allowed 10 turnovers, resulting in 15 points for the Bulls.

"[At halftime] Pop made sure we knew we need to take better care of the ball" shuttered Manu Ginobili when recalling Pop's halftime talk, but whatever he said apparently sank in.

The Spurs that took court in the second half was a completely different team than the one that took the court from the first half. With 2:53 left in the third quarter, Boris Diaw hit a free throw that gave the Spurs their first lead since halfway through the first quarter. By the end of the third, the Spurs led the Bulls 72-68.

The Spurs had the fans standing on their feet in the final quarter as San Antonio ostensibly settled into a groove. Spurs' point guard Patty Mills and forward Tiago Splitter stepped up, both players finished the game with 13 points apiece/

The final quarter of the game had the fans on their feet as the Spurs finally sank into the groove that earned the their current number one spot in the league. Patty Mills and Tiago Splitter stepped up, finishing the game with 13 points each. 

"We were playing well defensively, we moved the ball very well so it was a great second half to play," said Ginobili after the game.   

With Tony Parker out for a few weeks with a sprained ankle, there has been concern about the Spurs ability to hold on to their number one slot. However, with five players in double figures during Wednesday night's game, those concerns are being quieted.

The San Antonio Spurs host the Portland Trailblazers on March. 8. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
