SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Tony Parker
scored 19 points and Tim Duncan
had 13 as the San Antonio Spurs easily downed the Los Angeles Clippers 103-87 Monday.
Richard Jefferson and Keith Bogans each added 11 points and Roger Mason came off the bench to put in 12 in the Spurs' 14th straight win over the Clippers.
The game was close until San Antonio reeled off the final 12 points of the first quarter, keyed by Bogans' 3-pointer and Antonio McDyess' buzzer-beating jumper, which gave the Spurs a 33-19 lead.
The Clippers used back-to-back treys from Eric Gordon to pull to within 39-35 late in the second quarter but Parker's jumper capped a subsequent 6-point run by San Antonio, which posted a 57-46 edge at halftime.
Chris Kaman led Los Angeles with 23 points and 15 rebounds and Rasual Butler scored 18 points off the bench.
