Tony Parker scored 19 points and the San Antonio Spurs won their 10th in a row with a 116-92 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Spurs are off to their best start in franchise history, improved to an NBA-best record to 11-1, while extending their longest winning streak in nearly three years.

Mo Williams scored 21 points and Daniel Gibson had 17 for Cleveland, who played the night before in New Orleans.

The Spurs made 12 of 25 from the three-point line and had a season-high 32 assists, including nine from Parker and Matt Bonner hit four three-pointers.

The Cavs have lost five of their last six games.

The new-look Cavaliers beat the short-handed and watered-down San Antonio Spurs in Pittsburgh Thursday night.

J.J. Hickson scored 18 points and pulled down nine rebounds to lead the way.

Cleveland improved to 4-1 by outscoring San Antonio 56-39 in the second half, including a run of 11-2 late in the third quarter.

Spurs starters Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Richard Jefferson made the trip but did not play. San Antonio had played two days earlier in Mexico City, a 100-99 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Ramon Sessions added 14 points and Daniel Gibson scored 13 points added six assists and four rebounds for Cleveland.

There were a couple of injuries in the game both involving Cavs players. Antawn Jamison suffered a left knee sprain and Anthony Parker had a minor hand injury.

Manu Ginobili scores 38 as San Antonio stops Cavaliers win streak

compiled from staff and wire reports

The San Antonio Spurs are not having the kind of season that they’re accustomed to, 53 or more wins. At least that has been the case since they drafted Tim Duncan back in 1977.  This season, the Spurs are (43-28) with 11 games left and 53 wins will only be possible if they go 10-1. That’ll be hard to accomplish with point guard Tony Parker out with an injury. Currently, San Antonio is seventh in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of Portland.

Since Tony Parker went out of the lineup with an injury, the Spurs are 7-4 and leading the way has been Manu Ginobili who is averaging 23.8 points per game.

Friday night against the NBA’s best team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Ginobili scored 15 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, as the Spurs won 102-97, ending the Cavs latest win streak of eight games. The Cavs win streak actually started earlier this month with a win over the Spurs in Cleveland.

It was Ginobili’s third 30-point game since he was forced into the starting lineup when Tony Parker broke his hand on March 6.

LeBron James scored 27 points for Cleveland, but he and his Cavalier teammates watched their second-longest winning streak go by the wayside with six scoreless possessions down the stretch.

The Cavaliers had another negative from the game as center Anderson Varejao left the game in the first half with a sore hamstring and did not return.

Cavaliers show depth; beats San Antonio without LeBron, Shaq & Antawn Jamison

The Cleveland Cavaliers have the best team in the NBA. On Monday night,  playing without three of their top players, LeBron James, Shaquille O’Neal and Antawn Jamison, who left the game to ice his sore knee, Cleveland showed its deep bench and that there are other stars on the team.

Point guard Mo Williams made two free throws with 9 seconds left and Delonte West used his talent and skills to emulate LeBron James late in the game as Cleveland won for the first time in three seasons without their superstar, beating  the San Antonio Spurs, 97-95.

The Cavaliers had been 0-9 since 2007-2008 playing with James. Mo Williams took over to score 17 points. “We did a good job of finding a way to win without Antawn, LeBron and Shaq,” Williams said.

Cleveland head coach Mike Brown is taking advantage of  the late season gaps in the schedule to give LeBron James’ tender right ankle a rest. He hasn’t played for two straight games.

Delonte West contributed 16 points and a key defensive play in the final minute as the Cavs became the first NBA team to reach 50 wins this season.

The Spurs, who were playing without speedy point guard Tony Parker, out six weeks with a broken hand, were led by shooting guard Manu Ginobili, who scored 38 points with seven 3-point goals.
