NBA Round Up
Tim Duncan had 25 points and 13 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs showed they can still hang with their Western Conference rivals in a 105-85 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA last night.
Tony Parker scored 22 as the Spurs got their biggest victory this season.
Kobe Bryant had another off game for Lakers, scoring 16 points. He again wore a thick splint over his broken right index finger and did not play in the fourth quarter because of back spasms.
Andrew Bynum scored 23 points and Ron Artest had 13 for the Lakers, who have lost three of four.
Other winners last night were Memphis Grizzlies, Detroit Pistons and Charlotte Bobcats.
