Spurs stifle Celtics, 90-102.

The Boston Celtics are always an exciting adversary due to the team's rich history. In a clash of past and present dominance, the Spurs would rely on future star Kawhi Leonard (28 points) and win after a strong second half.

Failing to find a rhythm in the first half, the Spurs had to deal with tough by the Celtics whose Avery Bradley finished with 17 points. In doubt, the champs turned to Tony Parker (23 points/7 assists) and soon a flow was established on the court.

San Antonio went on to win the final two quarters 19-30 and 22-33, with Boston struggling due to hard-nose defense, especially by Danny Green who held Bradley to 7-19 shooting. Ray Allen had 11, Ginobili had 10, Duncan had 8 and Splitter teased a double-double.
