Seven Spurs hit double figures in win over Hornets


By Tim Price, for NBA.com

SAN ANTONIO (NBA.com exclusive) -- Because of a bad ankle, a bad hip, food poisoning -- you name it -- Spurs coach Gregg Popovich thinks all those ailments are keeping Tony Parker from staying in the game for as many as 38 minutes.

But Parker made a huge difference in the 30 minutes he played Friday against New Orleans. Parker scored 20 points on 8-for-12 shooting (he was 7-for-10 in the first half) and handed out six assists as the Spurs defeated the Hornets 102-91 at AT&T Center.

"He can't go play that much right now because of the injuries and the time off," Popovich said. "He's got to work to get in shape, but at the same time he can't exacerbate the hip or ankle."

It's the most he's played in the past five games he's been on the floor (he's missed six of the past 15 because of ankle and hip injuries, and one of those games because of a case of food poisoning).

If Parker's energy wanes during the game as he tries to overcome injuries, he took advantage of his energy in the first half. Parker directed the Spurs to lead by as much as a dozen points, leading a team effort that netted 16 assists on the team's first 22 baskets.

Such ball movement showed most dividends at the 3-point line, where the Spurs had enough open looks to knock down 8-for-11 before halftime. New Orleans could only manage 2-for-3 in the first half.

Five Spurs players took at least one 3-pointer in the first half, and all of them made at least one.

"I don't know how many threes they had, but they had a lot," Hornets rookie point guard Darren Collison said. "That's what it took to beat us."

It led to seven players scoring in double figures, including a season-high 15 points from Keith Bogans in an odd start at the small-forward spot. Manu Ginobili scored 16 off the bench, George Hill had 14, Tim Duncan and Matt Bonner 12 apiece, and rookie DeJuan Blair had 10 points and 12 rebounds in place of Antonio McDyess (out for his second-straight game because of a sore knee).

"Tonight when I made my first couple of shots the rest of the team was good about getting the ball back to me," Bogans said.

The Hornets did get a near career-high 32 from Collison and 22 from David West, but starters Peja Stojakovic (1-for-10) and Morris Peterson (1-for-6) struggled.

"I think we could have used some additional scoring," Hornets coach Jeff Bower said.

New Orleans trimmed the Spurs lead to as few as four points late in the third quarter because they were able to shoot the ball effectively for most of the night. They had it at better than 50 percent before settling to 49.4 percent by game's end.

San Antonio shot 54 percent and finished 12-for-20 behind the 3-point line.

"I thought the Spurs played at a high level," Bower said. "We had to earn every bucket we made. I don't think we made enough plays to come out on the plus side on the road."

The Hornets (31-32) now have lost four-straight games -- two of those to the Spurs in the last four days -- and are 5 games back of Portland for the West's final playoff spot.

It's the first time the Hornets have been below the .500 mark since they were 15-16 on Jan. 2. Without Chris Paul the past 17 games because of the knee injury, New Orleans is (6-11).

The Spurs (35-24) on the other hand are at their highest point since being 24-13 on Jan. 13.

The Spurs swept the season series 4-0 (with Paul playing two of those games) for the first time since the 2006-07 season.

New Orleans could not further utilize the quality play by West and the Hornets bench. West made his first eight shots, but when he finally missed midway through the third quarter there were three teammates who each had taken more shots than West (and they were a collective 13-for-29, including 1-for-9 by Stojakovic).

"The best way to defend Peja is not to let him catch the ball," Bogans said. "My approach tonight was to make him work before he got the ball and hopefully by the time he got the opportunity for a shot he would be too tired to make a good one."

The Spurs bench (Ginobili, Bonner and Richard Jefferson) got off to a 3-for-10 start and were outscored by their New Orleans counterparts 17-9 with 2:15 to go in the first half. By the end of the game the San Antonio bench outscored the Hornets reserves by four.

Marcus Thornton came off the bench for 18 points, but he had to leave the game in the third quarter when he fell over Parker and landed on his back. He was diagnosed with an upper-back strain and will be re-evaluated Saturday.
