Celtics vs. Spurs final score: Balanced attack paces Spurs to 112-100 win over Celtics

Jared Wickerham

Six Spurs scored in double figures Wednesday night as San Antonio picked up an impressive road win in Boston.

Tony Parker scored 26 points and Tim Duncan added 20 to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 112-100 win over the Celtics Wednesday night in Boston.

Duncan also had a game-high 15 rebounds, while Rajon Rondo tallied a whopping 15 assists.

Rondo also led the Celtics with 22 points.

The Spurs took an eight-point lead into the locker room, which was just enough as the two teams went back and forth in the second half.

San Antonio shot 14-19 from the stripe for the game and were 8-16 from three.

And while Parker and Duncan were the two well-known names to fill the stat sheet for San Antonio, power forward Tiago Splitter was perhaps the game's most impressive player. He came off the bench to score 23 points on an efficient 9-11 shooting.

In fact, it was the bigs who may have been the difference in the game. The Spurs out-rebounded the Celtics by a healthy 41-25 margin.

Both teams return to the court next on Friday. The now 9-3 Spurs visit the Indiana Pacers next, while the Celtics, who dropped to 6-6 with the loss, host the Oklahoma City Thunder.
