One-time Spur guard George Hill faced off against his old teammates last night as the 24-5 Spurs took on the 16-10 Indiana Pacers. Gregg Popovich, who is no stranger to cracking wise against opponents and former players, had a little fun with Hill, waving his hand through his hair and telling him, "I like it," as Hill passed the bench, golden locks gleaming under the arena lights. 

The Spurs had no problem shutting down the Pacers, continuing our undefeated streak at home and our six game winning streak. The Spurs will face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves tomorrow night at 7 p.m. and with former Spur Gary Neal on the roster, maybe we'll get another look at the lighter side of Pop.
