Not everything was pretty for the Spurs in their season-opening 120-111 win over the New York Knicks Wednesday night.

RJ Barrett #8 of the New York Knicks drives to the basket against Landry Nnoko #36 of the Phoenix Suns during the 2019 NBA Summer League at the Thomas & Mack Center on July 7, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Murray had 18 points, including a three-pointer with five minutes remaining that put San Antonio up 105-97.

Eight points by Forbes over the quarter's final four minutes, including a 3-pointer and three free throws after being fouled while shooting from beyond the arc, helped the Spurs push their lead back to eight point, at 59-51, at intermission.

NY tied the game at 69 on a running layup by Bobby Portis off a Barrett assist with 5:54 to play in the third quarter and then took a 72-69 lead on a 3-pointer by Randle. The Spurs even traded Davis Bertans to make room for Morris, who later signed a one-year deal with the Knicks for more annual money ($15 million). The 6-foot-10, 220-pounder averaged 5.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 14.6 minutes over two seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies. He will primarily play for New York's G League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks.

Gregg Popovich may view the New York Knicks as "unprofessional" for prying Marcus Morris away from them, but the Knicks apparently feel they are even with San Antonio. Morris reportedly backed out of a "verbal agreement" to sign with the Spurs in the offseason and later chose to sign with the Knicks. Popovich turned 70 on January 28.
