LaMarcus Aldridge got the Spurs winning machine back on track in Minnesota with 29 points and seven rebounds. Assistant coach Ettore Messina currently sitting in for Gregg Popovich was glad the machine was back on track.
“The machine is a well-oiled machine,” Messina said. “It goes on. You try to sit at the wheel and steer and try not to mess it up. Keep it straight.”
