Spurs 116, Clippers 92

Center Tiago Splitter scored a season-high 22 points as the San Antonio Spurs rolled to a 116-92 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Splitter shot eight of 12 for the game in 24 minutes, but left early in the fourth quarter with a sprained right shoulder and did not return.

San Antonio had four other players in double figures, including guards Tony Parker (17) and Manu Ginobili (15).

Forward Kawhi Leonard added 10 and center Tim Duncan had 19 with 11 rebounds.

The Clippers played their first game without guard Chris Paul, who suffered a separated right shoulder in a 119-112 win over Dallas on Friday.
