LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19 (UPI) --
Patty Mills came off the bench Tuesday and led the San Antonio Spurs with 25 points in their 113-103 road win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
Mills got some extra minutes Tuesday while Tony Parker rested his aching back and responded by going 9-for-15 from the field and scoring 16 points in the fourth quarter.
Marco Belinelli added 20 points for the Spurs, who shot 50 percent from the field and out-rebounded Los Angeles 48-38. Tim Duncan came away with 19 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists.
Blake Griffin turned in a double-double of 35 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Clippers. Los Angeles had won their previous three games.
Chris Paul struggled with 1-of-10 shooting from the field and ended with 11 points for Los Angeles. Jamal Crawford scored 25 points.
Crawford's 3-pointer with 5:17 to play in the fourth quarter cut the Spurs' lead to 97-91, but San Antonio quickly extended it back to double digits on a 7-0 spurt and remained in control the rest of the way.
