Spurs celebrate Duncan, beat Pelicans in fundamental fashion
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - - LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points and the San Antonio Spurs paid tribute to Tim Duncan on his jersey retirement night with a fundamentally strong performance in a 113-100 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday.
San Antonio won its fourth straight overall and fourth consecutive at home after a slow start at the AT&T Center.
The Spurs retired Duncan's jersey after the game. The franchise cornerstone retired in the offseason after winning five championships and two MVPs in 19 seasons, all with San Antonio.
Duncan's style of play led to the nickname "The Big Fundamental," and the Spurs honored him with their own rather seamless performance against the Pelicans.
