Spurs' home streak continues, Raptors breeze past Bucks


The San Antonio Spurs made it 33-straight wins at home this NBA season, defeating the Los Angeles Clippers 108-87 on Tuesday.

The win means the Spurs' remarkable home streak matches the second-longest to open a season in the NBA's history, equalling that of the 1995-96 Orlando Magic.

Kawhi Leonard had 20 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge (17), Patty Mills (15) and Manu Ginobili (13) were all solid contributors.

The Clippers were without Blake Griffin and Paul Pierce as they struggled to their second loss in a row.

The Toronto Raptors improved to 45-21 with a comfortable 107-89 triumph over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo impressed once again for the defeated Bucks, notching another double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds, but he was bettered by Toronto's Kyle Lowry who managed his own double-double of 25 points and 11 assists.

Evan Fournier scored 30 points for the Orlando Magic as they beat the Denver Nuggets 116-110, while the Philadelphia 76ers slumped to another loss, this time at the hands of the Brooklyn Nets 131-114.

Elsewhere, the Indiana Pacers beat the Boston Celtics 103-98 and the Sacramento Kings got the better of the Los Angeles Lakers 106-98.
