The Celtics continued their struggles on the road, even in a place they've had great success.
The Celts, who had won their last five games at San Antonio, dropped a 103-88 decision to the host Spurs Saturday night. It was also Doc Rivers' team's fourth straight road loss.
For the second straight night, the Celtics let the game slip away by being outscored in both the third and fourth quarters. This time the C's managed just 39 second-half points, with San Antonio netting 50 in the final two quarters.
Rajon Rondo had a tough night in his matchup with Tony Parker, netting just six points while falling short of double-digit assists (9). Leading the Celtics' offense were Paul Pierce and Jason Terry, who each scored 18 points.
Parker led all scorers with 22 points. Spurs' center Tim Duncan scored just five points while shooting 2-for-13 from the field. The veteran big man did, however, manage a plus-18 while on the floor.
