Without LaMarcus Aldridge, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard, the San Antonio Spurs suffered a blowout loss against the Houston Rockets, 93-109.

This was the third-straight loss for the Spurs and brings their record to 37-30 on the season. This officially makes them the 10th seed as the Spurs continue to fight for a playoff spot.

James Harden scored 16 of his 28 points in the third period while the Rockets beat the Spurs in the paint, 46-26.

Let’s take a look at who shined and who didn’t for the Spurs.

Bryn Forbes:

Forbes has been hit-or-miss all season, but versus Houston, he showed some signs of life. He managed to finish the game with 14 points, two rebounds, three assists and a steal.

He finished the game by shooting 50% from the field in his 24 minutes on the floor. This was good enough to make his +/- at +2 making him one of the few players with a positive +/- all night and a rare bright spot for the team in the loss.

Dejounte Murray:

With the Spurs depleted, their second-year guard couldn't get the team into rhythm nor get his own game going.

He would finish with 7 points in 19 minutes, and end the game with a +/- of -22 for the teams - the worse for the night.
