first_imgSmart’s Siklab Saya: A multi-city approach to esports The Spurs hadn’t played on the road since absorbing their lone loss, 95-91 against Chicago Bulls on December 8. Leonard and Gasol grabbed 10 and nine rebounds, respectively.Devin Booker had 17 points and Eric Bledsoe added 14 for Phoenix, which hung with San Antonio for three quarters before falling victim to the decisive run.‘Keep coming’“We have such a deep group; we don’t play our guys a lot of minutes so we’re able to sustain our effort for the whole game,” Gasol said.“When teams ramp it up and make their runs and even get ahead, it’s hard for them to sustain that.“Our second halves and our fourth quarters are strong because we keep coming until we break the game open.” Down by nine late in the third quarter, the Suns rallied and took their last lead at 77-76 on a Leandro Barbosa three-point play with 10:08 left.But Phoenix scored only one basket over the next six minutes while the Spurs ran away and stretched their lead to 17 at 97-80 on Aldridge’s hook shot with 4:19 left.“We finally took care of the ball. It’s tough to score when you keep giving it away,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.In Milwaukee, Australian Matthew Dellavedova drained a three-pointer that restored a double-digit lead with 94 seconds left as the Bucks held off a late charge by the Chicago Bulls to win 108-97.
