SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Cory Joseph had 19 points and the San Antonio Spurs overcame Washington’s fast start to beat the Wizards for the 17th straight time, 101-92 on Saturday night.
San Antonio has won 14 straight games at home over Washington, but this was among the more unexpected.
With Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard injured and Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili struggling, the Spurs turned to the role players that helped them win a championship last season.
Tiago Splitter scored 16 points, Patty Mills had 15 and Boris Diaw added 14 for San Antonio. Ginobili had five points, and Duncan four.
Bradley Beal and John Wall led the Wizards with 15 points each.
