Spurs shine yet again

Los Angeles, Feb 3, 2013, Reuters:

The San Antonio Spurs continued their supremacy in the NBA, beating Washington 96-86 on Saturday for a 10th successive victory.

The Spurs dominated the first half, leading 51-26 at the break, before easing the tempo in the second to improve to an NBA best 38-11, confining the Wizards to an equal league worst 11-35 in the process.

It was not all good news for the Spurs who lost All-Star Tim Duncan to knee and ankle sprains in the first half after he became tangled with Martell Webster.

Tony Parker led the Spurs with 19 points and 12 assists, while all 12 of their players got on the scoresheet. John Wall scored a game high 21 points for the Wizards and added nine assists.

Meanwhile, Charlotte Bobcats rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was taken to hospital for checks to his head and neck after a heavy fall following a collision with team-mate Jeff Taylor during the Bobcats' 109-95 loss to the Houston Rockets on Saturday.

Kidd-Gilchrist, the second overall pick in last year's draft, went up to defend Toney Douglas' layup early in the fourth quarter before the collision. He lay motionless for several minutes before being placed in a neck brace and carried from the arena and taken to a local hospital.

Result: Chicago: 93 bt Atlanta: 76; New York Knick: 120 bt Sacramento: 81; Cleveland: 115 bt Oklahoma City: 110; Houston: 109 bt Charlotte: 95; Minnesota: 115 bt New Orleans: 86; Milwaukee: 107 bt Orlando: 98; San Antonio: 96 bt Washington: 86; Portland: 105 bt Utah: 99; Golden State: 113 bt Phoenix: 93.
