WASHINGTON -- The San Antonio Spurs have been so good on the road, its almost a disappointment they have to return home.The way theyre playing right now though, it probably doesnt matter where the game is.LaMarcus Aldridge scored 24 points, Tony Parker added 20 and the Spurs beat the Washington Wizards 112-100 on Saturday night for their ninth straight victory.The Spurs (14-3) swept a three-game road swing and are 10-0 away from home.I do want to go home. I dont want to play at home, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich joked after the game. Youve got no choice, no choice.Kawhi Leonard scored 19 for San Antonio, which shot 53.3 percent (40 of 75) from the field. The Spurs led by 10 at halftime and as many as 19 in the second half.San Antonios bench outscored Washingtons reserves 35-18.Last game was rough. Starters didnt have a great start, Aldridge said of Fridays win in Boston, when the reserves supplied 56 points. Today we focused on trying to come out and have both units be solid and be locked in.Bradley Beal led Washington (5-10) with 25 points and John Wall scored 21. Marcin Gortat had 10 points and 10 rebounds.The Wizards got within 69-62 on a three-point play by Wall late in the third quarter, but the Spurs soon pushed the lead to 12 on Aldridges 3-pointer and it was 90-76 after three quarters.San Antonio was 23 of 29 from the free throw line while the Wizards were 10 of 14.Theyre so disciplined and (have) so much experience, and a lot of guys can make shots, Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. But we put them on the free throw line 29 times and we couldnt get there. Thats definitely a big part of their win.Parker scored 11 points in the second quarter as the Spurs opened a double-digit lead.At the end of the day, its about defense and we didnt play it at the end of the day, Beal said.TIP-INSSpurs: Improved to 6-0 vs. Eastern Conference teams. ... G Manu Ginobili was rested as the Spurs played the second of back-to-back games and C Dewayne Dedmon (sprained left knee) missed his sixth straight. ... Have won 19 of their last 21 games against the Wizards. ... Are 7-0 with the starting five of Leonard, Aldridge, Pau Gasol, Danny Green and Parker. ... Gasol had eight points and 10 rebounds after being held scoreless Friday.Wizards: F Markieff Morris received a double technical and was ejected for arguing after picking up two quick fouls in the third quarter. ... It was the first of four straight games against Western Conference teams for Washington. ... The starters shot just one free throw in the first half. ... Wizards fell to 5-6 with Wall and Beal in the lineup.PLEASANT SURPRISEFor a team with a lot of new faces, the Spurs havent missed a beat.The fact that a lot of the new guys have caught on so quickly, Popovich said when asked what surprised him about his teams start.Kyle Anderson and John Simmons havent played much before and David Lee and Davis Bertans and Dwayne Dedmon and Pau just all got here, so theyve blended in very well pretty quickly. Thats whats most surprising about it.MAHINMI MAKES HIS DEBUTWashingtons bench got a boost with the Wizards debut of center Ian Mahinmi. Signed as a free agent in July, Mahinmi, 30, missed the first 14 games while recovering from left knee surgery. He played 15 minutes, scored one point and grabbed a rebound.I knew going into the game that he was going to be rusty, and he was, but he gave us good effort, Brooks said.UP NEXTSpurs: Host Orlando on Tuesday.Wizards: Host Sacramento on Monday. Authentic Andre Dawson Jersey . 9. Price, heading to the 2014 Olympics for Canada, was named the First Star after posting wins in three starts with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. Discount Cubs Jerseys . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. Authentic Willson Contreras Jersey . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. Authentic Yu Darvish Jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida States Dwayne Bacon said a major focus of improvement during the offseason was working on refining his jump shot. The early results are encouraging judging by Saturdays opener.The sophomore guard scored 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the Seminoles 88-67 win over Charleston Southern.It was pretty good. I didnt just settle for a lot of 3s. I feel like I took a lot but I got to the basket too and mixed it up a lot, said Bacon, who last season became the first freshman in school history to lead the team in scoring and rebounding,The 6-foot-7 guard struggled shooting from the perimeter last season, making only 28.1 percent from beyond the arc. On Saturday, he was 4 of 6 on 3-pointers, including one off a ball screen, and 7 of 14 from the field.Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton was not only pleased about Bacons shooting, but his all-around game.I thought his defense was good, his energy was excellent and his shot selection was great. He made good decisions with the ball, Hamilton said.The rest of the Seminoles also shot well, going 33 of 67 from the field. Xavier Rathan-Mayes scored 12 points and freshman Jonathan Isaac added 10 as FSU improved to 14-1 in openers under Hamilton.Charleston Southern was up 17-12 early in the first half on a Cortez Mitchell 3-pointer before the Seminoles took the lead for good with a 20-5 run. FSUs largest lead was 22 with under a minute remaining.Freshman guard Christian Keeling led the Buccaneers with 16 points while Mitchell added 14 and Jamar Martin 12. They struggled on 3-pointers, making just 7 of 25.I thought we did some good things defensively and held our own on the boards, Charleston Southern coach Barclay Radebaugh said.ddddddddddddBIG PICTURECharleston Southern: The Buccaneers have eight newcomers on their roster and are still trying to figure out how everyone fits.Florida State: The Seminoles shift to an up-tempo offense showed some growing pains. They scored 18 points on the fast break but also had 10 turnovers. They also controlled the paint with a decisive 48-28 edge.TURNING POINTFlorida State led 38-32 at halftime but was able to put it away with a 14-2 run to begin the second half. Rathan-Mayes and Isaac each had five points during the run but Isaac had the highlight play with an alley-oop dunk off a Terrance Mann assist to make it 45-32 with 17:41 remaining.HE SAID ITIf he shoots like that, it opens a whole new world for him. He puts the ball on the floor well. He has the ability to get to a spot and, with his size, jump up and make shots. To guard him on the line is significant even in the ACC. If he can do that then that gives you a whole other dimension. It will open driving angles and makes teams have to spread out a bit. -- Radebaugh on Bacon.UP NEXTCharleston Southern: Has its home opener on Tuesday against Columbia (South Carolina) International. The Rams are members of the National Christian College Athletic Association.Florida State: Returns to action on Tuesday against Iona, which made the NCAA Tournament last season.---More AP college basketball at and Joe Reedy on Twitter at China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Jerseys From China ' ' '
