San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Tony Parker compiled 22 points and eight
assists as the San Antonio Spurs put an end to their first losing streak of
the season by coming through with a 103-88 triumph over the Boston Celtics at
the AT&T Center.
The Spurs returned home having been handed back-to-back defeats to Utah and
Portland on a 4-game road trip, but outscored the Celtics by a 51-39 margin in
the second half to pull away and get back on track.
Gary Neal helped San Antonio's cause by dropping in 20 points, with Tiago
Splitter adding 16 points to the victory.
The night wasn't all positive for the Spurs, however, as valued guard Manu
Ginobili exited the contest in the first quarter with a bruised left
quadriceps and did not return.
Paul Pierce and Jason Terry each netted 18 points in the loss, Boston's second
in a row following two straight wins.
