Ray Allen leads Spurs past Pelicans in N'Awlins.

Spurs built an early lead but the fierce Pelicans (without Jrue Holiday) stuck around, with Anthony Davis succeeding at lots of put back points from offensive rebounds despite a quiet night (10pts/11rebs).

Pelicans took lead back early in 4th quarter mostly due to Tyreke Evans (19pts/8rebs) and also a 3pter by Eric Gordon (5-21), but it was Ray Allen that nailed a 3 in the clutch to reclaim the lead for San Antonio. Struggling, New Orleans couldn't score against the Spurs defense in the final 2 minutes and the Spurs survived.

Austin Daye (14pts/4 3PTers) was remarkably productive, but Manu Ginobili poorly ran the floor during the run by New Orleans, before hitting an apologetic 3. Otherwise, Tony Parker (18pts/7asts) and Tim Duncan (19pts/6rebs) turned back the clock early on with a stellar pick & roll exchange. Kawhi Leonard (20pts/6asts/5rebs) as usual was solid on the break, but had a kink in his shot, yet still nearing a triple-double.
