SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Tony Parker had 21 points and six assists as the San Antonio Spurs stopped Oklahoma City's four-game winning streak with a runaway 130-91 victory over the Thunder last night. Boris Diaw scored 19 points for San Antonio. Kawhi Leonard finished with 14 points in the Spurs' highest scoring game of the season.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — James Harden had 25 points and 10 assists as the Houston Rockets handed New Orleans its fourth straight loss with a 95-93 victory last night. Dwight Howard had seven rebounds and a block on Anthony Davis in his return from a two-month absence. Davis had 24 points and 14 rebounds for the Pelicans, but uncharacteristically missed eight free throws.
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Ales Hemsky scored twice in regulation as the Dallas Stars beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 last night for their seventh win in eight games. Tyler Seguin got a shot past Karri Ramo in the first round of the shootout. Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen was perfect against Joe Colborne, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan to get the victory.
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Anthony DeSclafani pitched the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-0 win over the Texas Rangers last night. All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman fanned two in his one inning of work. DeSclafani was acquired from Miami in the offseason trade that sent Mat Latos to the Marlins. The right-hander permitted four hits and wriggled out of a bases-loaded jam after issuing two of his three walks.
