Patty had a big night out. For a largely unheralded player, Patty is incredibly consistent and is having more and more big nights. His big night against Houston in Game 5 of the 2017 playoffs featured 20 points with 5 three pointers.

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich summed it up in his normal unflappable manner. ‘Patty did for us tonight, what he’s done the entire time he’s been here.’ Damn straight, and he’s going to keep doing it too. Smart money’s on Patty staying a big part of Popovich’s rotation into next year and beyond.
