SAN ANTONIO - With just a few weeks remaining in the
regular season, the defending NBA champions appear to be peaking at
the right time. Tony Parker and Michael Finley scored 22 points
apiece to lead San Antonio's 109-88 romp over the visiting Houston
Rockets. The Spurs had the lead for nearly the entire game and led
by as many as 25 points while notching their seventh straight win.
San Antonio started the game tied with New Orleans for the
Western Conference lead, with Houston a half-game back.
Luis Scola scored a season-high 24 points for the Rockets, and
Tracy McGrady and Rafer (RAY'-fur) Alston each had 13 points after
shooting a combined 9-of-38.
