SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs lamented the decline of the Los Angeles Lakers before playing their longtime rival. Dorian ODaniel Chiefs Jersey . Then, they went out and dominated them. Danny Green had 15 points and the Spurs won their ninth straight, defeating the Lakers 119-85 on Friday night for their largest victory over Los Angeles. "They just took it to us," Los Angeles coach Mike DAntoni said. "To be able to guard them, you have to make multiple efforts. It might be eight times you have to stop something in the half court. They are going to keep moving the ball until they find something good. We just did not have the intensity or wherewithal to hang in there. "They carved us up pretty good." It certainly was unlike the classic down-to-the-wire showdowns the teams have had during the last several years. San Antonio never trailed after the opening four minutes, allowing coach Gregg Popovich to limit his starters and Manu Ginobili to an average of 17 minutes. The Spurs had five reserves score in double-figures, led by Matt Bonners 13 points and 10 rebounds. Marco Belinelli and Aron Baynes scored 12 points each, Cory Joseph added 11 points and Jeff Ayres had 10 points. Ginobili and Tony Parker each had seven points in 14 minutes and Tim Duncan had nine points in 15 minutes. "Its great," Parker said. "We want to keep our legs fresh -- big picture, the playoffs. At this time of the season, if we can have games like that, its great." San Antonio (49-16) maintained the leagues best record ahead of Indiana and Oklahoma City, who are both 48-17. "They are playing really, really, really well," DAntoni said. "That is probably the best we have seen all year." Pau Gasol had 18 points and 11 rebounds in 26 minutes and Jodie Meeks had 15 points for Los Angeles (22-44), which has lost five of six. The Lakers suffered their most lopsided defeat to the Spurs since a 135-103 loss on Feb. 22, 1977. And it came eight days after their worst loss of this season, 142-94 to the Clippers. "This season has been rough in many, many ways and many aspects, and disappointing," Gasol said. "I agree its one of the worst seasons as far as collective results and record. Especially when youre a franchise like the Lakers, you dont expect to have a season like this." Baynes running, one-handed dunk on Wesley Johnson gave San Antonio its largest lead at 86-51 lead with 3 minutes remaining in the third. "Great hands in the lanes, good defence, good rotations," Duncan said. "Weve beat some pretty good teams here in the last couple of games and we came in here, we had to respect them. We did just that from the go and got a lead and stuck with it." Green scored all of his points on 3s, going 5 for 8 from beyond the arc. He hit back-to-back 3s, giving San Antonio a 70-38 lead 3 minutes into the third. Los Angeles was shooting 17 per cent from the field 2 minutes into the second quarter, going 4 for 24, and finished the game at 34 per cent. Struggling to hit jumpers, the Lakers drives into the paint proved just as formidable. Green and Kawhi Leonard each had two blocks in the first 4 minutes and Tim Duncan picked up two blocks over the following 4 minutes. While injuries to key players like Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash have limited the Lakers, Gasol said the teams struggles go beyond its health. "We will try to watch some tape of how San Antonio plays and try to emulate them a little bit," Gasol said. "Try to get to the paint and make that right pass, keep the ball moving, find the open guy, not force stuff and not try to win it on your own, you know, basics." After a sluggish start for both teams, San Antonio went on a 20-2 run beginning midway through the opening quarter to take a 29-12 lead with 1:35 remaining. Normally one of the leagues weaker rebounding teams, San Antonio set season highs in total rebounds (64) and offensive rebounds (18). The Spurs entered the game 17th in the league in rebounding at 42.6 and were tied for 26th in offensive rebounding at 9.0. NOTES: Gasol said he is happy for former Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who will be announced as the New York Knicks team president Tuesday. "It will be interesting to see how involved and what kind of decisions hes going to make and what kind of relationship hes going to have with the coaching staff and players," he said. "Hopefully, Ill talk to him and he can explain it to me a little bit." When told the Knicks were over the salary cap, Gasol, an impending free agent, said: "Thats a shame." ... Los Angeles was without Bryant (fractured left knee), Nash (nerve root irritation), Nick Young (sore left knee) and Jordan Hill (sore right knee). ... Parker was dumbfounded when official James Williams called a blocking foul on him, shrugging his shoulder and repeating, "What did I do?" Williams, fellow official Ken Mauer and Duncan all chuckled at Parkers protest considering the Spurs were leading 77-47 at the time. ... Despite having a roster minus most of their biggest stars, the Lakers still received thunderous boos during introductions. Kendall Fuller Chiefs Jersey .Tzavelas opened the scoring in the 11th and Pereyra added another in the 51st. Emmanuel Kone pulled one back in the 80th and Levadiakos missed several chances to level in the last 10 minutes. Robert Golden Chiefs Jersey .Brothers B.J. and Justin Upton each homered and had an outfield assist, and the Braves held on for a 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night. http://www.chiefsstoreauthentic.com/authentic-breeland-speaks-chiefs-jersey/ .com) - Houston Texans interim head coach Wade Phillips confirmed Monday that starting quarterback Case Keenum sustained a sprained right thumb during Sundays 25-3 loss in Indianapolis.Toronto FC enter their busiest month of the Major League Soccer season sitting in a great position. With 20 points from their first 12 matches they are fourth in the Eastern Conference. They are within striking distance of the summit, with multiple games in hand on the teams above them as they head to the Windy City to face the Chicago Fire on Wednesday night, live on TSN and TSN Radio 1050. The Reds conceded a late goal to drop a couple of points in New York on Friday in their first game back from the World Cup break, but the 2-2 draw at Red Bull Arena extended their unbeaten run to five matches, their longest run without a defeat in almost two years. It is six years since the only other time Toronto FC managed to take 20 points from their first 12 matches. Last year it took until their 22nd match to reach that mark. So there is much to be positive about as the Reds look to climb the standings during a hectic month ahead. The Form: During their five match unbeaten run, Toronto FC have won three home games and drawn twice away from home. Both of their ties on the road came against teams that are expected to be challenging for the playoffs come the end of the season. First, they showed resilience to fight back late in the game despite being a man down at defending champions Sporting Kansas City, and then last Friday the late goal went against them as they drew 2-2 in New York. For far too many seasons in Major League Soccer, Toronto FC have traveled away and shown very little ability to collect points. But things have changed. Yes there have been a couple of dismal days this season like the defeat at Real Salt Lake, but there have also been wins at Seattle and Columbus as well as the recent draws. This is a team that now has the quality and belief to go anywhere in MLS and get a positive result. The Big Question: Will Jermain Defoe keep scoring? Defoe now has eight goals in nine MLS appearances and theres no reason to believe his goal-scoring touch will disappear anytime soon.  Toronto FC paid mega bucks to sign him from Tottenham Hotspur in January, and so far Defoe has been worth every cent. His movement and instinct in-front of goal is as good as any other player in Major League Soccer. He took his goal superbly against New York Red Bulls and has now scored in each of his last three matches. He has five goals in his last five MLS games. With Defoe on the pitch, Toronto FC are in every game. The Lineup: With Gilberto struggling with a hip flexor injury, it coulld be an unchanged lineup for Ryan Nelsens men. Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys. . The Brazilian seems to be the only injury concern for Nelsen right now, and until Michael Bradley returns from the World Cup, the eleven against New York is pretty much as strong as it gets for Toronto. Dominic Oduro made his first start for the club against the Red Bulls following his move from Columbus and is likely to start against his former team. Oduro looked lively for the Reds and set up Defoe for TFCs first goal. With Collen Warner, Jonathan Osorio and Jackson completing the midfield, there is plenty of MLS experience. The mid-season additions of Warner and Oduro have really strengthened the Reds midfield. With Gilberto expected to miss out, Defoe and Moore should once again start as the pairing up front. The Opposition: Under new head coach Frank Yallop, it has been a slow start to the season for Chicago Fire. The former Canadian international joined the Fire at the end of last season but his side has found it tough to win games in the opening quarter of the year. They havent lost many, but they head into Wednesdays game sitting bottom of the Eastern Conference. The Fire have secured 14 points from 14 matches, with just two wins, but they have drawn eight times. They lost their final match before the World Cup break 3-2 at home to Seattle Sounders, and will now be without defender Jon Kennedy Hurtado who was sent off in that match. Chicago are without a win in their last four matches since securing impressive victories at New York (5-4) and home to Sporting KC (2-1). Former Toronto FC forward Quincy Amarikwa is having a good season and is the Fires joint leading scorer along with rookie Harry Ship, who scored both goals in the loss to Seattle. Yallops team can also call upon Major League Soccers reigning MVP Mike Magee. The Odds: The history books are on Chicagos side. Toronto FC are without a win in their last eight matches against the Fire dating back to May 2010, and the Reds have never won in Chicago on their seven previous visits. In fact, in 16 all-time meetings, TFC have won just three times. But if there was ever a time for Toronto to put things right in Chicago, it is now. Torontos road form is much improved over past seasons and the Fire have been inconsistent so far this season. However, the wise money would be on a scoring draw. Where To Watch: Join me with Jason de Vos and Kara Lang for Chicago Fire against Toronto FC live on TSN on Wednesday at 8:30pm ET, 5:30pm PT.
