INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Tony Parker scored 22 points in the San Antonio Spurs' franchise-record 18th straight victory, a 103-77 rout of the slumping Indiana Pacers on Monday night.
Boris Diaw added 14 points for the Spurs, who bettered their previous longest winning streak that was set from Feb. 19 through March 31, 1996.
Paul George scored 16 points for the Pacers, who have lost six of seven and their once seemingly safe three-game lead over Miami for the Eastern Conference's top seed. The Heat would be alone in first place with a victory over Toronto later Monday.
San Antonio took control of the game with first-half runs of 11-0 and 15-0 and didn't let the Pacers get closer than eight the rest of the way.
