SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Tim Duncan scored 19 points, Tony Parker had
18 and the San Antonio Spurs won their third in a row, beating the
New Orleans Hornets 93-81 Thursday night.
A night after Duncan scored 25 in a win over Houston, it was
somewhat surprising that he even played. Coach Gregg Popovich has
vowed to limit the 35-year-old's minutes and playing the West's
worst team seemed to invite a night off.
But the Hornets didn't make it easy. Carly Landry scored 17
points and Greivis Vasquez added 16 points staring in place of
Jarrett Jack, keeping New Orleans close before the Spurs blew on
the game in the fourth.
