CLEVELAND (AP) -- Danny Green scored 19 points against a Cleveland team that released him last season, Tony Parker added 19 and the San Antonio Spurs coasted to their eighth straight win, 125-90 over the Cavaliers on Tuesday night. Green played his rookie season for Cleveland, which cut him at the end of training camp in 2011. He's found a new home with the Spurs, who built a 22-point lead in the first half and rested Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili for most of the fourth quarter while pushing their lead to 37. Rookie Kyrie Irving scored 13 points for the Cavs in his return after missing one game with a sprained right shoulder. Cleveland has lost eight in a row, 11 of 12 and been outscored by 72 points in its past two home games. Antawn Jamison led the Cavs with 15 points. The Spurs began a 16-games-in-23-days stretch to finish the lockout-shortened regular season, a grueling finish before the playoffs for any team, and especially for one with so many veterans.

Video: Sean Elliott on this year's Spurs team

Video: Mills ready for Spurs’ system

Picking up a player this late in the season to help with the playoffs seems kind of pointless. No matter how talented, you can’t just stick a guy on the court, point him to the hoop and say “go!” Luckily, the San Antonio Spurs know what they’re doing. When they signed Australian point guard Patrick Mills, they got someone who could fit right in. One of the Spurs’ assistant...

As every hardcore Patty Mills fan knows, the speedy Aussie point guard has joined the San Antonio Spurs on a two year deal, after some visa wranglings were eschewed out of the way.

Box Score: Spurs 125, Cavaliers 90

Another game, another loss. This one in particularly ugly fashion. The Cavaliers played bad offense and even worse defense. There are no moral victories and no rays of sunshine in this loss. Pretty much everyone in the wine and gold played poorly and the score reflects it. You have to accuse a team of quitting, and let’s face it, this roster is not very good at all, but this team...

Video: Knee-high socks add to Spurs' team unity

Against the Indiana Pacers, the San Antonio Spurs worse their throwback Dallas Chaparrals jerseys and thanks to Tim Duncan, the team took the retro look a step further. Duncan got the entire team to wear knee high socks against the Pacers and while some players enjoyed the look, Popovich thought the look was ridiculous and Stephen Jackson felt it added to team unity but it was his...

Spurs survive Celtics second half comeback for 9-straight wins

There’s a reason basketball lasts for 48-minutes, as opposed to one half of 24-minutes. Take the San Antonio Spurs and Boston Celtics on Wednesday night, the Spurs were playing the Celtics on the second night of a back-to-back and at one point had a 17-point lead in the second quarter on a Celtics team that had two days of rest. But those “older” Celtics wouldn’t let this...
