Spurs see off Pelicans, honour Duncan

Alyssa BaileyDec 20, 2016

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 22 points in 26 minutes of play and Manu Ginobili added a season-high 17 points off the bench as the San Antonio Spurs manhandled the New Orleans Pelicans 113-100 on Sunday at the AT&T Centre, winning their fourth straight game.

LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs in their 113-100 win over Anthony Davis and the Pelicans, but the night belonged to Duncan, who was part of all five of San Antonio's National Basketball Association championships.

He thanked his family, said Popovich was "like a father to me" and praised him and Buford for putting the Spurs' puzzle together. When Adrian Wojnarowski breaks draft picks six slots ahead of the broadcast, we feel secure, because it's less time waiting like children in front of our flat-screens, alone and anxious about a world with more moving parts than we know.

NZ dollar extends decline on Fed's plans for faster U.S. rate hikes
Like the financial markets, the Fed is now expecting a steady upward trend in interest rates in 2017 and beyond. The kiwi dollar dropped to 71 United States cents as at 5pm in Wellington from 72.15 cents late yesterday.

The Mavs forward was one of six Dallas players with double-figure points, while DeMarcus Cousins was a lone hand for the Kings with 33 points, Ty Lawson's 10 points the only other double-figure effort for the visitors.

"My first two years in the league he won MVP two years in a row, and every night I look and am like, 'Wow, 40 and 26, I didn't even see it.' That's insane to do that". And he just is polite enough and mature enough to just ignore me and go back out on the court, which allowed me to coach everybody else all those years. "But off the court, that's where we're soulmates". As Antonio Davis said, Duncan is "the best teammate in professional sports history". He often visits the practices and is included in all the plays and actions for the games. He also displayed the sense of humor that everybody around the organization has raved about for the last two decades, that the public rarely gets to see.

"He jumps in and out", Popovich said. There is always more at play than we think. Little bit of one-on-one here and there.

Obama urges Trump to take foreign election impact seriously
A third of Republican voters approve of Vladimir Putin, the former head of the KGB. "Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave", he said.

He made the All-NBA, All-Star and All-Defensive teams 15 times each during his career and he is one of only three players in NBA history to reach 1,000 career wins, as well as the only player to reach 1,000 wins with one team.

This is just a small sample of his achievements, but numbers are not his legacy. He created a dynasty - a new kind of basketball.
