NBA Playoffs: Spurs, Nets Post Wins


The San Antonio Spurs and New Jersey Nets posted wins Saturday in their National Basketball Association quarterfinal playoff series.

San Antonio star Tim Duncan had 33 points and 19 rebounds to lead the Spurs to a 108-101 victory over the visiting Phoenix Suns. Manu Ginobili added 24 points for the Spurs, who took a two-games-to-one lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal series.

The Spurs host the Suns again Monday.

In the East, the New Jersey Nets downed the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers, 96-85. Jason Kidd led the Nets with 23 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds -- his 11th postseason triple-double. Vince Carter and Richard Jefferson also scored 23 points for New Jersey, which held Cleveland star LeBron James to 18 points -- a career low for him in a postseason game.

The Cavaliers still hold a two-games-to-one edge in the series, which continues Monday on the Nets' court.

The Detroit Pistons will try to remain undefeated in the postseason and wrap up an Eastern Conference semifinal series Sunday when they visit the Chicago Bulls.

The Utah Jazz visit the Golden State Warriors today, with the Jazz leading the Western Conference series two games to one.
