The San Antonio Spurs are officially 1-0.

The 2017-2018 season opened up with a 107-99 win at home for the Silver and Black, and it was quite a way to kick off the season.

Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker sat out the contest, which says how impressive dropping 107 points is.

In his first game since signing an extension with San Antonio LaMarcus Aldridge had an impressive 25 points, 10 rebounds, and four assists. He also led the team with 39 minutes logged.

The young Dejounte Murray certainly showed promise as the heir apparent at the all-important point, but there were definitely some moments where his 21-year old age showed.

Perhaps the brightest light of the night came from one of the newest Spurs, Rudy Gay. It’s well-known how steep of a climb Gay made coming back from injury, he said five months ago he couldn’t even walk, but you would have never known it if you just began watching basketball Wednesday night.

Overall the Spurs looked like it was the first game of the season and that they were missing Leonard and Parker. It’s a long season, but you can’t get to 82-0 if you don’t win your first game, and San Antonio is off to a good start.
