Tim Duncan carried his team to victory last night, scoring 29 points and grabbing 12 rebounds as the Spurs topped the Nets, 81-70. Not only does this make ten straight wins for the Western Conference leading Spurs, but it also marks San Antonio's second victory over New Jersey in three days, earning a 2-0 season sweep, the AP reports.
Vince Carter had 19 for the Nets, who were competitive early, but were battered on either side of half time. Starting in the second and reaching into the third quarter, the Spurs put together an 18-1 run, holding New Jersey scoreless for almost seven minutes. The Nets closed to single digits later in the quarter, before San Antonio shut the door entirely.
