Spurs Win 34th StraightNEW360

The San Antonio Spurs won their 34th straight home game this season, beating the Portland Trailblazers 118-110 on Thursday.

 

The Spurs 34-0 home record this year is the second-best home start to a season in NBA history, behind only the 37 victories by the 1995-96 72-win Chicago Bulls.

 

Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge led San Antonio with 22 points each, while Tony Parker had 18 points and a season-high 16 assists in the historic win.

 

For the Blazers, C.J. McCollum poured in a team-high 26 points and Damian Lillard added 23 points in the loss.

 

Up by only two at the half, the Spurs pulled away in the third quarter when they scored 39 points and sank 5 three-pointers.

 

“They made some tough shots,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts told mysanantonio.com. “I mean they go 5-of-5 from threes; Kawhi made some tough ones, Patty Mills came off hard and made shots. …That certainly gave them a lot of momentum.”

 

“We’ve got to understand that coming on a court that nobody has won on, [against] arguably the best team in the league, we can’t put ourselves in that position, and we did that,” Portland’s Lillard said to ESPN of the fateful third quarter.

 

Next up for the Spurs is a San Antonio showdown with the mighty 61-6 Golden State Warriors, who are 32-0 at home and are chasing the 1995-96 72-win Chicago Bulls for the best regular season record in NBA history.
