Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Alan Anderson scored 22 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 103-89 win over the depleted San Antonio Spurs at Barclays Center. Deron Williams finished with 16 points and eight assists, Paul Pierce tallied 12 points, and Andray Blatche added 10 for Brooklyn, which snapped a six-game losing streak against San Antonio. The Spurs, who already were without Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard, were missing Tony Parker due to lower back tightness that saw the point guard leave Wednesday's win against Washington and Tim Duncan, who was held out to rest. Cory Joseph paced San Antonio with 18 points, while Danny Green netted 17 points and Patty Mills registered 16 points off the bench.
Final Score: Golden State 102, Chicago 87
