Spurs beat Clippers 113-103 without Tony Parker

Spurs beat Clippers 113-103 without Tony Parker

San Antonio 113 Final
LA Clippers 103



LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Patty Mills scored 16 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, Tim Duncan had 19 points and 13 rebounds during a foul-plagued 38 minutes, and the San Antonio Spurs charged out of the All-Star break with a 113-103 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night.

The Spurs played without six-time All-Star Tony Parker, whom coach Gregg Popovich said would be sidelined ''for the foreseeable future'' because of numerous aches and pains - including a bruised shin, a groin strain and lower back spasms.

The 13-year veteran point guard, who played 11 minutes in Sunday's All-Star game, is the Spurs' leading scorer and their only player averaging at least 30 minutes.

Blake Griffin had 35 points and 12 rebounds, Jamal Crawford scored 25 and DeAndre Jordan grabbed 18 rebounds for the Clippers, who ended a run of five consecutive home games that began with a four-point loss to two-time defending champion Miami.

Small forward J.J. Redick missed his fifth straight game with a sore right hip.

Corey Joseph started for the 13th time this season and had seven points in Parker's place. Backup shooting guard Manu Ginobili returned to the lineup and had nine points in 14 minutes after missing eight games since Jan. 28 because of tightness in his left hamstring. But center Tiago Splitter was sidelined for the fourth straight game with a bruised right shin, and forward Kawhi Leonard missed his 12th in a row due to a broken bone in his right hand.


All those injuries have presented a stiff challenge for the Southwest Division leaders, who are 8-7 since a five-game winning streak last month. They lead the Clippers by three games for the second-best record in the Western Conference.

San Antonio has two games left on its nine-game rodeo road trip.
