White similarly starred with a crucial steal on Jamal Muray mid-court with 1.3 seconds left before icing the game for the Spurs with two free throws. They were the only Western Conference team to rank in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. "Seeing his progress from the beginning - when Dejounte went down - you see it every single day, every single week, every single month, and to be here in the big moments and see how he steps up, he came up big".
