Mills, Spurs top Nets 118-105 on Dinwiddie s career night

By Raul Dominguez, Associated Press SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Patty Mills had 27 points and the San Antonio Spurs overcame a career-high 41 points from Spencer Dinwiddie to beat the Brooklyn Nets 118-105 Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). Mills had 21 points in the second half, shooting 5 for 8 on 3-pointers as the Spurs rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat the Nets for the 17th straight home game. LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 points and 10 rebounds for San Antonio. Brooklyn's Kyrie Irving missed his 17th straight game with a right shoulder impingement. Dinwiddie tried to cover by shooting 14 of 29 from the field, eclipsing his career high by two points. The Spurs closed the third quarter on a 12-0 run and notched their first lead at 83-81 on Mills’ layup with 3.8 seconds left. San Antonio was 4 for 9 on 3-pointers in the third, including Derrick White’s 3 to tie it at 81. The Nets never trailed in the first half and led by 14 points while the Spurs plodded along. San Antonio committed nine turnovers and shot 40% from the field in the first half. Brooklyn opened the game on a 12-2 run, including two emphatic dunks by Jarrett Allen. Allen’s second slam came off an uncontested drive that prompted a timeout by Popovich 3 minutes into the game. Allen finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds for Brooklyn. TIP-INS Nets: David Nwaba left a minute into the fourth quarter after twisting his right ankle in a scramble for the ball near the top of the key. Nwaba was assisted off the court after initially lying in pain as play continued. He finished with four points, two rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes. ... Brooklyn is 11-6 in Irving’s absence. ... Irving did not travel with the team on its two-game road trip. Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said there is no update on Irving’s injury status.
