Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- A Band-Aid may have been able to temporarily stop the bleeding above Antoine Walker's right eye, but it could not halt the Boston Celtics' struggles with the San Antonio Spurs. Tim Duncan scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds and Tony Parker added 10 and seven assists after surviving an early flagrant foul by Eric Williams as the Spurs earned their 11th straight triumph over the Celtics with a convincing 94-78 victory. Duncan never has lost to the Celtics. San Antonio has swept five straight season series since its last loss to Boston on January 8, 1997. The Spurs also improved the NBA's third-best road record to 19-13. "On the road, when you're not getting those calls you've got to be able to weather all types of storms," former Celtic Bruce Bowen said. Walker, who scored his team's first 11 points and finished with 18, bumped heads with teammate Mark Blount in a volatile first quarter that saw Williams ejected just four minutes into the contest. The Spurs, who squeaked past Boston at home on January 13 on a late 3-pointer by Stephen Jackson, did not need any late-game heroics Sunday. They took advantage of 23 Celtics' turnovers and led by as much as 26 points in the third quarter. Boston never led and trailed, 48-30, at halftime. It got no spark from the return of Paul Pierce, who missed Friday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers with lower back spasms and scored 10 points on just 5-of-13 shooting. Boston remained third in the Atlantic Division, one-half game behind Philadelphia. "Right now we're just battling," said Walker, who also had seven rebounds and four assists. "So we need to get this one out of our system because we have a chance against the teams we're battling against. We have a chance to help ourselves and not sit back and wait." Jackson had 15 points and 40-year-old Kevin Willis chipped in a season-high 15 for the Spurs, who dished out a season-high 30 assists and shot 53 percent (36-of-68) from the floor. "We didn't want it to be a Tim Duncan show or a Tim Duncan-Tony Parker show," Bowen, who had seven points. "We have other guys out there that are capable of contributing night after night." After Jackson forced a turnover at the 8:04 mark of the first quarter, Parker was set to make a layup before Williams used a half-nelson as both players crashed to the floor. "He hit me hard, but it was OK," said Parker, who made both free throws. "But I can take it, it's the NBA." "I think Boston wanted to make a statement against us, but we can play physical too," Parker added. "We know how to play the East style; it doesn't matter. Of course, when you hit your outside shots, it helps." With Williams gone, Boston lost a key post-up player and solid defender. "Obviously that's huge for us, 'cause we were going to use Eric to post up a lot," Walker said. "That's where our success was when we played them down in San Antonio. "It's a touchy foul. They say they were going by the rules, but I felt it was too early in the game to assess that. You couldn't even get into the flow of the game to say it was that type of foul." Mark Blount added 15 points and a career-high 11 rebounds and rookie J.R. Bremer scored 15 points for the Celtics, who shot 40 percent (31-of-78). "I thought we defended really well. We got right up to them with a hand in their face," said Duncan. "It didn't seem like they got a whole lot of wide-open jumpers like they usually do and we just pushed it back out. It was a pretty good night for us."
