Best bet on the Tube


The San Antonio Spurs have won four NBA championships, made 32 playoff appearances and captured 18 division titles in their 40-year history. Yet for all their success, they had never opened a season with four straight victories. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and the Spurs finally did so Monday night, rolling past the Indiana Pacers 101-79 to remain unbeaten. “I’m surprised we’re still doing records,” Parker said. “It seems like we did everything, but that’s another one. That’s great.” The Spurs will attempt to make it 5-0 today ( 7:30 p.m. on ESPN) when they play the host Los Angeles Clippers, who are 2-2 but tied for first place in the Pacific Division. – AP
