Spurs take down the Nets despite another drama-filled night


    SAN ANTONIO - In the last 10 games, only the Celtics, Raptors and Spurs have beaten The Brooklyn Nets.

    San Antonio (31-22) joined the almost-exclusive club with its 117-114 win over Brooklyn Thursday night at the ATT&T Center.

    Led by Derrick White with 26 points, the Spurs were able to use some last-minute heroics to get to their fourth-straight win.

    With just under two minutes left, the Spurs were up one, but a DeRozan pull-up jumper near the charity stripe gave them a 112-109 win.

    The lead wasn't safe yet, though. San Antonio continued to pull away until the score was 115-111 with just 4.9 seconds left.

    But Brooklyn (28-24) wasn't done, with a 23-foot Shabazz Napier three-pointer, the Nets were within one.

    A San Antonio timeout led to a LaMarcus Aldridge set of free throws, which he hit and put the Spurs up 117-114 to essentially end the game.

    The Spurs also won another battle Thursday, against the bats.

    San Antonio will face New Orleans Saturday.
