Ian Clark was the lone bright spot in the Warriors abysmally performance putting up a career high 36 points off 21 shots shooting extremely efficient in the process (15-21 from the field and a perfect 3-3 from three-point night). Clark has been a key bench contributor for this Warriors team all season but has recently fallen out of the rotation. Steve Kerr will hopefully have taken note of this performance and place Ian Clark back into the Warriors rotation, as the Warriors look to bounce back from this disappointing road trip and make a final push in their team aiming games to clinch the no.1 seed in the West.

Kyle Anderson

Kyle Anderson despite being a second-round pick, has quietly been a key contributor to this Spurs team, Saturday night was another underrated night for this young Spurs player has he posted a solid stat line ( 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists along with an efficient 5-7 shooting). Also recording the second highest plus/minus of the night (+20). When Kyle Anderson was first drafted despite being a late second round pick many league experts knew this man would be a perfect fit for the Spurs and despite no game-breaking performances as of yet, Anderson has stuck to the Spurs philosophy of playing fundamental basketball and has earnt his spot in Greg Popovich's rotation.

Davis Bertans

Despite being drafted in 2011, this is Bertans first year playing in the NBA after spending five years playing overseas in Europe. Bertans scored 11 points Saturday night hitting three 3 pointers in the process. At just 24 years of age, Bertans has seamlessly transitioned smoothly into the NBA and Greg Popovich's fundamental offense.

After Saturday's performance, Popovich will be pleased with the rookie's performance and will look to give Bertans more game time as Popovich will most likely rest key players heading into the playoffs.

Patty Mills

Patty Mills has proved time and time again he is a starting caliber point guard in the NBA and Saturday night was no different posting.

With Tony Parker out due to the back stiffness, Mills scored 21 points in 21 minutes including five three-pointers and 18 points in the first half. Mills will be a crucial X-factor in the Spurs chase for this year's title. However, the main question is with Mills becoming a free agent and the salary cap set to increase yet again.

Will the Spurs be willing to pay the money that other teams will offer Mills or will the Spurs let a key contributor walk?
