PHOENIX -- The San Antonio Spurs continue to be the NBAs best road team.The Spurs turned a close game early in the fourth quarter into a romp, getting 18 points and 10 rebounds from Kawhi Leonard and 18 points and nine boards from Pau Gasol in a 107-92 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night.The Spurs (21-5) withstood the Suns attempt to push the tempo after San Antonio had played Wednesday, and held Phoenix to 40 percent shooting. They improved to an NBA-best 14-1 on the road.We havent really thought about that much, guard Danny Green said. Took one loss last time on the road, wanted to bounce back and play better.San Antonio took a 10-point lead early in the third quarter, but the Suns wouldnt go away until the fourth. Leandro Barbosa flipped in a finger roll and was fouled with 10:08 to play in the game, and the Suns 77-76 lead was their first since midway through the second quarter.The Spurs responded with an 11-0 run and clamped down defensively to take control of the game for good, and beat Phoenix for the eighth consecutive time.We have such a deep team, we really dont play our guys a lot of minutes. So our effort is pretty steady, Gasol said. When teams ramp it up and try to increase the intensity, they make their runs, they might get ahead at times, but then its hard for them to sustain it for 48 minutes.Devin Bookers 17 points led the Suns, who missed a chance to win consecutive games for only the second time this season.Our guys fought and gave all they could. Some games end up like this, coach Earl Watson said.Phoenix took a 39-33 lead on Tyson Chandlers dunk with 4:44 to go in the first half, but the Spurs scored 18 of the final 22 points of the half for a 51-43 lead. Two came from a steal and dunk by Leonard and his 3-pointer with 39.5 seconds left.For us we have a couple of more hurdles to get over, but that is the biggest hurdle, the fourth quarter, Suns forward Jared Dudley said. When teams go on big runs we lose our confidence. We lose our composure.TIP-INSSpurs: The Spurs moved to 6-1 in the second of back-to-back games this season. ... F LaMarcus Aldridge returned to the starting lineup after being rested Wednesday night and had a rough first half of shooting, but finished with 14 points. He passed the ball when he needed to, he scored when he needed to, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.Suns: F T.J. Warren missed his 13th straight game due to a head injury ... F Alex Len missed his second straight with a right hip bruise. ... The Suns recalled G Tyler Ulis, F-C Alan Williams and F Derrick Jones Jr. from Northern Arizona of the D-League. Ulis and Williams got major minutes Wednesday night in a one-game stint with Northern Arizona, then were brought back to the Suns.IN MEMORY OF SAGERBoth teams coaches expressed sorrow regarding the passing of longtime NBA reporter Craig Sager, for whom a moment of silence was observed in the arena before tipoff.Popovich spoke only of Sager for about 2 minutes before the game. Watson said it was his and many other players dream to be interviewed by Sager.Every genius is never afraid of being exactly who they are. And he was a genius at his job, a genius at everything that hes done, Watson said. He stayed true to himself and we all embraced him.Booker wore a brightly colored Sager tribute T-shirt during warmups.KNIGHT TAKES TWO HITSSuns G Brandon Knight absorbed two hard fouls on consecutive possessions in the third quarter. He took a forearm from Manu Ginobili, then was knocked off-balance and fell to the court with a thud when Patty Mills yanked his arm going up for a layup. Knight remained in the game and shot free throws after both fouls were reviewed and ruled common fouls, to the dismay of the home crowd.UP NEXTSpurs: Host New Orleans on Sunday night before a three-game trip.Suns: At Oklahoma City on Saturday.

Nike Air Max 97 China Wholesale . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Falcons found themselves in another tight game.This time, they came through with the winning play.After two excruciating losses, the Falcons rallied for a 33-32 victory over the Green Bay Packers when Matt Ryan threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Mohamed Sanu with 31 seconds remaining Sunday.With Julio Jones shut down in the second half, Ryan turned to Sanu to bail out Atlanta (5-3). He caught five passes for 50 yards on the final possession, the last of them a touchdown pass in the back of the end zone after he got matched against linebacker Jake Ryan.The Green Bay player didnt have a chance. Sanu raced past him and hauled in the pass right in front of the goalposts, the ball easily clearing Ryans outstretched hands.Weve got the greatest receiver in the NFL, but weve got other great guys in that room, too, Sanu said. When our number is called upon, we went out there to do what we do.The Falcons were coming off a 26-24 loss at Seattle and a 33-30 overtime setback to San Diego in which they squandered a 17-point lead at home.Given what happened a year ago -- Atlanta started the season 6-1, then lost six in a row and missed the playoffs -- it was imperative to turn things around against the Packers. It didnt look good when Aaron Rodgers threw his fourth touchdown pass, putting the Packers ahead with 3:58 remaining.Its just finishing, Sanu said. We didnt finish the last two weeks and we finished this week.Sanu had nine catches for 84 yards, both season highs in his first year with the Falcons. Atlanta needed every one of them, since Jones was held to three catches for 29 yards and targeted only once in the second half -- a dropped pass on the final possession.But Jones helped Sanu get open on the winning play, drawing two defenders when they lined up on the same side of the field.Ryan was 28 of 35 for 288 yards and three touchdowns.They dont call the guy Matty Ice for no reason, Sanu said. The guy has ice in his veins.Rodgers threw for 246 yards, teaming up with a bunch of unknown receivers as the banged-up Packers played without six starters. Linebacker Clay Matthews and receiver Randall Cobb were among those who couldnt go because of hamstring injuries.Three Green Bay receivers -- Geronimo Allison, Trevor Davis and Jeff Jaanis -- got their first career touchdown.ddddddddddddAllison, in fact, had just been promoted from the practice squad and never caught a pass in an NFL game. Ditto for Davis, a rookie who had mainly been used as a returner.Thats our job, to go out and make plays regardless of whos in there, Allison said.The Packers took a 32-26 lead after the Falcons were caught with too many men on the field, giving Green Bay a first down rather than having to go for a fourth-and-1. Rodgers went to Janis for a 7-yard touchdown with 3:58 remaining, followed by a 2-point conversion.It wasnt enough. Sanus touchdown tied the game, and Matt Bryant booted through the winning extra point. Bryant had already become the Falcons career leading scorer, passing Morten Andersen, with a PAT after Atlantas first TD.SACKING THE PACKAdrian Clayborn had the first multi-sack game of his six-year NFL career, bringing down Rodgers twice in the second half.Vic Beasley Jr. also had a sack, giving him 6 1-2 over the last four games and 7 1-2 for the season.RODGERS RUNSRodgers was also Green Bays leading rusher with a career-high 60 yards on six carries. He broke his previous best of 57 yards in 2012, and posted the highest rushing total by a Packers quarterback since Don Majkowskis 88-yard effort in 1990.INJURY REPORTThe Falcons lost tight end Jacob Tamme to a right shoulder injury on the opening possession.Tamme took a hit at the end of a 13-yard reception and left the field holding his right arm.UP NEXTPackers: Return home next Sunday to face the Indianapolis Colts (3-5), in what will be the only game played in Green Bay during the month of November. After that, its three straight on the road.Falcons: Have only three days to prepare for a Thursday night game at Tampa Bay (3-4), which is coming off a 30-24 overtime loss to Oakland. This will be the second meeting between the NFC South rivals; the Buccaneers opened the season with a 31-24 victory in Atlanta.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963.
