NBA CAPSULES: Spurs notch 11th-straight win

SAN ANTONIO — Manu Ginobili had 16 points to lead seven players in double figures and the San Antonio Spurs beat the New Orleans Pelicans 112-93 on Monday night for their 11th straight victory.

Tony Parker had 14 points and seven assists, Tiago Splitter added 11 points and Tim Duncan had 10 points for San Antonio (13-1). Reserves Marco Belinelli had 14 points, Boris Diaw added 13 points and Patty Mills 12 to keep the Spurs undefeated at home.

Ryan Anderson had 17 points, Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday each added 12 points and Anthony Davis had 10 for New Orleans (6-7). The Pelicans, who have lost six straight in San Antonio, had a three-game winning streak snapped.

TRAIL BLAZERS 102, KNICKS 91

LaMarcus Aldridge had 18 points and 14 rebounds for his seventh double-double this season and the Trail Blazers beat the slumping Knicks for their 11th straight victory.

Nicolas Batum had 23 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Blazers, who are riding their longest winning streak since they won 13 straight in December 2007.

The Knicks were headed the opposite direction with six straight losses. Carmelo Anthony had 34 points and 15 rebounds.

The Blazers (13-2) were without guard Mo Williams, who was serving a one-game suspension without pay for his role in a scuffle during Saturday night's 113-101 victory at Golden State.

JAZZ 89, BULLS 83

Trey Burke made a key 3-pointer to help the Jazz outlast Chicago in overtime - the Bulls' first game since learning Derrick Rose would again be lost for the season.

Burke, a rookie finally enjoying extensive playing time after spending most of the season recovering from finger surgery, had 14 points and six assists. He also had five turnovers and shot 5 for 17 but was on the court in clutch time directing the Jazz to their second win of the season.

Carlos Boozer had 26 points and 16 rebounds and Luol Deng added 24 points for the Bulls, who were exhausted in their fourth game in five nights and still processing the loss of Rose for the season.

Marvin Williams had 17 points and Gordon Hayward and Richard Jefferson each had 15 as the Jazz scored the first seven points of overtime.

PACERS 98, TIMBERWOLVES 84

George Hill scored a season-high 26 points, and Paul George had 11 of his 26 points during the decisive run, leading the Pacers to a victory over Minnesota.

Indiana has won four straight since losing at Chicago, is 13-1 for the first time in franchise history and remained perfect in eight home games this season.

The Timberwolves (8-8) shot just 32.6 percent from the field and was held to a season-low point total.

Kevin Love finished with 20 points and 17 rebounds.

CELTICS 96, BOBCATS 86

Jordan Crawford had 21 points, reserve Gerald Wallace added a season-high 17 points and the Celtics beat the Bobcats for their second straight victory.

Crawford was 5 of 11 from the field and had five assists as the Celtics avenged an 89-83 loss to the Bobcats on Nov. 13. The 31-year-old Wallace, who played for the Bobcats from 2004-11, was 6 of 10 from the field.

Brandon Bass scored 16 points and Phil Pressley had a career-high eight assists for Boston (6-10).

Kemba Walker had 28 points to lead the Bobcats (7-8), who failed to get above the .500 mark after 15 games for the first time in franchise history. Gerald Henderson added 20 points.

HEAT 107, SUNS 92

LeBron James scored 35 points on only 14 shots from the field, Dwyane Wade added 21 points and 12 assists and the Heat won their seventh straight game.

Ray Allen scored 17 points and Chris Andersen added an 11-point, seven-rebound night for the Heat, who have won 10 of 11 since their 1-2 start.

It was Wade's first 12-assist game since March 22, 2010.

Channing Frye led a balanced attack with 16 points for the Suns, who have dropped five of their last seven. Goran Dragic scored 14, Marcus Morris had 13, Markieff Morris and Gerald Green each added 12 and PJ Tucker finished with 10 for Phoenix.

ROCKETS 93, GRIZZLIES 86

Chandler Parsons scored 17 points, Omri Casspi added 16 and the Rockets overcame a double-digit deficit to beat the Grizzlies.

Houston (10-5) trailed for most of the night and its 93 points were a season low, but the Rockets made a 14-2 run early in the fourth quarter, pushing ahead 67-65 on a pair free throws by Casspi with 8:26 remaining.

The Rockets played without All-Star guard James Harden, who missed his second straight game with a sore left foot. They've won five of their past six.

It was the Grizzlies' (7-7) first full game since 7-foot-1 center Marc Gasol was lost indefinitely to a sprained MCL in his left knee.

NUGGETS 110, MAVERICKS 96

Ty Lawson had 19 points after a quiet start, Nate Robinson scored 11 straight for Denver in the fourth quarter and the Nuggets beat Dallas for the second time in three days.

Robinson finished with 17 points, all but two in the second half, and Lawson had 14 after halftime and finished with a game-high 11 assists as the Nuggets handed Dallas its first home loss in eight games this season.

J.J. Hickson led Denver with 22, and Kenneth Faried added 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Monta Ellis led the Mavericks with 22 points, and Dirk Nowitzki passed Brooklyn's Kevin Garnett on the scoring list and finished with 18.

PISTONS 113, BUCKS 94

Brandon Jennings made four consecutive 3-pointers in the first quarter against his former team, and the Pistons overwhelmed Milwaukee with a dazzling first half.

Jennings was traded from Milwaukee to Detroit last offseason after four seasons with the Bucks. He hadn't been shooting well for the Pistons, but that changed right away Monday, when he led Detroit on a 21-0 run toward the end of the first quarter.

Jennings finished with 15 points and 13 assists. Brandon Knight, who went from Detroit to Milwaukee in the trade, scored eight points. The Bucks have lost nine straight.

Khris Middleton, whom the Bucks also got from the Pistons in that deal, had 14 points. John Henson led Milwaukee with 15.

    A rough month didn't get any better for Texas on Sunday night, even though the game-time temperature of 100 degrees would have seemed to be in the Rangers' favor against Oakland.

  • MLB: First-place Dodgers complete sweep of Giants

    Manager Don Mattingly hardly considers a late-July sweep in San Francisco a turning point to put his Dodgers in the driver's seat atop the NL West.

    Yet coming off consecutive series losses at St. Louis and Pittsburgh, Los Angeles needed some sort of spark as August approaches. The Dodgers found it in the ballpark of their biggest rival, and left the Bay Area in first place following an emphatic three-game swing.

    Carl Crawford hit an RBI triple to back Hyun-Jin Ryu's third straight victory, and division-leading Los Angeles beat the Giants 4-3 Sunday night to establish some momentum behind their pitching and offense.
