Spurs win ninth straight game, 112-100 over the Wizards

Against the Wizards the Spurs reserves outscored the Wizards bench, 35-18. The Spurs shot effectively from the field overall, from three and from the free throw line, but the Wizards still hung around. The Spurs (23/29 FT) had the edge at the free throw line, which made the main difference in the game. "... We battled. We battled and we kept the game eight to 10 points". In most circumstances, a person's bad mood goes away once they find out they get something to eat for free, no matter how crappy their day has been up to that point. At 5-9, the team now is near the bottom of the NBA's Southeast Division and on the outside looking in for the early playoff picture.

Parker scored 11 points and the Spurs shot 50 percent from the field for a 54-44 lead at the intermission. The Spurs who are still undefeated on the road, stayed true to their identity and used their depth to wear down the Wizards over the course of the game.

Despite these shortcomings, the Wizards continued to battle. The Spurs held on to double-digit lead for most of the second half and rolled to a comfortable win. The Wizards finished the game with 14 turnovers. Leonard' s numbers have taken a dip since then, suggesting that more touches are in order for the team's best player. This is how we as Australians usually play, we take pride in who we play for and who we represent.

Simmons posted 15 points while Anderson scored three points but he has been able to suit to the Popovich's system. The team said the exam showed no structural damage.

Former Gator Bradley Beal led Washington with 25 points and John Wall scored 21.

Ian Mahinmi, who was acquired in the offseason, made his season debut for the Wizards after missing the first 14 games due to knee surgery.

"(The ball) was finding me tonight", Simmons said. "Last game I felt like I was in a nightmare I couldn't wake up from". I was a little exhausted, but all of that is expected. "I don't want to play at home, but we've got no choice".

Lodeiro gives Seattle Sounders 2-1 win over Colorado in West finals
Doyle, in his second season with Colorado, scored three of his 12 goals against the Sounders - his most against any team. After falling behind in the 13th minute, the Seattle Sounders fought back and tied the game just six minutes later.

"I knew going into the game that he was going to be rusty, and he was, but he gave us good effort", Brooks said. "He knows how to play", said Brooks.

"He's been with me a long time now, I love playing with Patty, I love being with him and I love him as a teammate". We understand. You have to compete harder. The Spurs are the only team left unbeaten on the road in the entire National Basketball Association.

"Every team in the league probably wishes they can do what they do, but not every team is built the way they are", said Beal. Can San Antonio grab another crucial win as they try to keep up with the Clippers and Warriors?

The Wizards lack of a bench, proved to be their downfall yet again.

He got his first action late in the first quarter as both teams started subbing in players.

The Wizards, in their fourth back-to-back set of the season, endured a challenging affair Friday night.

"I don't want to play at home", added a smiling Popovich, acknowledging the 4-3 record at AT&T Center.
