(SAN ANTONIO) — Spurs center Tiago Splitter scored a team-high 22 points as San Antonio (26-8) bounced the Los Angeles Clippers (23-13) on Saturday night, 116-92.
The 29-year-old Splitter had to leave the game with 9:37 remaining, after he injured his right shoulder during a charge into the chest of Clippers center Ryan Hollins.
The Spurs had five players score in double-figure. Power forward Tim Duncan poured in 19 points while teammate, point guard Tony Parker contributed 17.
L.A. was without the services of point guard Chris Paul, who is expected to miss three to five weeks after separating his shoulder during Friday night’s victory against the Dallas Mavericks.
