And just when you thought you had seen it all in terms of San Antonio Spurs forward Tiago Splitter's offense, he decided to join in on the dunk fest the Clippers were having last night.
Splitter took the ball coast to coast before using a nice ball fake to create some space so he could finish the dunk.
While normally the idea of Splitter bringing the ball up the court...
20 turnovers, being outrebounded 46-29, and allowing a team to shoot 55% in a game will usually lead to disaster.

In recent years, it’s been a different story. The Spurs can put up points in...
