Aldridge, Murray lead Spurs past Raptors

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN ANTONIO -- LaMarcus Aldridge scored 20 points and Dejounte Murray added 16 points and 15 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs outlasted the Toronto Raptors 101-97 on Monday at the AT&T Center to remain unbeaten.

The game was tied at 85 with 5:55 to play before the Spurs used a Danny Green 3-pointer, two Kyle Anderson baskets and a Green turnaround hook shot to forge a 9-0 run that staked them to a 94-85 lead with 3:08 to go.

During that decisive run, Aldridge and Toronto's Serge Ibaka went chest to chest after pushing each other under the basket, with both players receiving technical fouls. Ibaka fouled out defending Aldridge's driving basket with 1:48 to play, and the ensuing free throw expanded the Spurs' lead to 97-87.
