Posted Monday July 12, 2010 8:42PM

LAS VEGAS -- Five San Antonio Spurs scored in double figures as the team defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 85-61 in the first game at the Thomas and Mack Center during the 2010 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

Spurs guard Garret Temple had 11 points in the first quarter, including back-to-back three-pointers which first tied the game at 12 points, and then took the lead 15-14 in a first quarter where the Timberwolves looked like they would dominate. Minnesota, who acquired forward Michael Beasley prior to the start of today's game, had outscored the Spurs 10-5 in the game's opening four minutes, owning an advantage of as many as seven points in the quarter. At the end of one, Minnesota led, 23-19.

San Antonio extended their lead to as many as 14 points in the second quarter, on the back of Alonzo Gee's six points. The team outscored the Timberwolves 21-14 and taking a ten-point advantage, 44-33, into the halftime locker room.

The teams traded baskets in the third quarter, with the Spurs taking a 13-12 advantage in the quarter, and headed into the fourth quarter up 57-45.

The Spurs continued to dominate in the fourth quarter, with Dwayne Mitchell scoring eight of his 12 points in that period and Gary Neal scoring nine of his 11.

Minnesota's Lazar Hayward led all scorers with 13 points.

The Timberwolves return to action on Wednesday, July 14, when the team faces the Sacramento Kings, while the Spurs continue their Summer League schedule on Wednesday when the team takes on the Atlanta Hawks.
