LOS ANGELES (AP) Patty Mills scored 16 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, Tim Duncan had 19 points and 13 rebounds during a foul-plagued 38 minutes, and the San Antonio Spurs charged out of the All-Star break with a 113-103 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night.
The Spurs played without six-time All-Star Tony Parker, whom coach Gregg Popovich said would be sidelined "for the foreseeable future" because of numerous aches and pains including a bruised shin, a groin strain and lower back spasms. The 13-year veteran point guard, who played 11 minutes in Sunday's All-Star game, is the Spurs' leading scorer and their only player averaging at least 30 minutes.
Blake Griffin had 35 points and 12 rebounds, Jamal Crawford scored 25 and DeAndre Jordan grabbed 18 rebounds for the Clippers.
