Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Tony Parker finally found his shot. Parker scored all 20 of his points before intermission and Rasho Nesterovic added 23 points and 13 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs continued their domination of the Boston Celtics with an easy 109-92 victory. San Antonio had lost three in a row after winning 15 of its previous 16, but the Spurs had no trouble with Boston, holding double-digits leads for a large portion of the game and coasting to their 12th straight victory over the Celtics. Parker had 13 first-quarter points for the Spurs, who have not lost to the Celtics since January 8, 1997. San Antonio has won its last five visits to the FleetCenter. Parker shot just 36 percent (13-for-36) in the three-game losing streak, but had the hot hand on Sunday, making eight of nine shots. "It was nice to knock a few down and get a win," Parker said. "I've been struggling and so have we. This one helps." Parker reached double digits for the 26th time in the last 28 games. "We sent out a search party for Tony's shot, and tonight we found it," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We were able to run things through Rasho tonight because they were fronting Tim (Duncan)." Paul Pierce scored 19 points and Mark Blount added 15 for Boston, which lost its fourth straight game. "Today we played soft," Boston coach Jim O'Brien said. "We just had no energy and we got beaten badly on the boards. I'm to the point that I'll play guys too many minutes to get more toughness out there." The Spurs never trailed and closed the first half with an 11-3 run to take a 52-40 lead at intermission. Nesterovic started the spurt with a tip-in and Parker added five points, including a 3-pointer. San Antonio clamped down defensively in the third quarter, holding the Celtics to four points over the final 4:21 of the period. Boston cut the lead to eight points twice in the third quarter, the last on a pair of free throws by Blount with 3:51 left. "Our defense was better today, better for a longer period of time," said Tim Duncan, who had 15 points. "On offense we rotated the ball really well and knocked down some shots." But Robert Horry hit one of two free throws and Duncan followed with a reverse dunk and the Spurs led by double digits the rest of the way. San Antonio led by as many as 11 in the opening period, taking a 24-13 edge on a pair of baskets by Nesterovic. Boston was never closer than 13 points in the final quarter.
