Rudy Gay and Devin Vassell shine off the bench in Spurs’ dismantling of the Suns

Photo by Michael Gonzales/NBAE via The Spurs’ youngsters seized the opportunity and dominated.

Drew Eubanks, inserted into the starting lineup, simply did not miss going 6 for 6 and scoring 13 points with 13 rebounds for a double-double. For the night,...
