SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Matt Bonner had 18 points and the San Antonio Spurs Big Three got some rest, handing the Philadelphia 76ers a 100-75 loss — their 10 straight loss to open the season — on Monday night.
Tim Duncan had 16 points and nine rebounds and Kawhi Leonard had five points and 11 rebounds in limited action. Cory Joseph added 14 points for San Antonio (6-4), which never trailed.
Duncan played 16 minutes and Tony Parker 18, as both sat out the entire fourth quarter after playing just five minutes in the third.
San Antonio won its 10th straight at home over Philadelphia and seventh overall against the hapless Philadelphia.
Michael Carter-Williams had a team-high 16 points and four assists. Last season’s NBA Rookie of the Year was playing in just his third game after missing the entire preseason and the first seven games of the season with a right shoulder injury.
