Austin Spurs make it three straight wins with victory over Suns


Four members of the Ausitn Spurs scored at least 18 points as they made it three wins in a row with a 114-101 win over the Northern Arizona Suns in Prescott Valley Wednesday night.

Charles Garica scored 21 while Orlando Johnson added 20 to help Austin (25-24) keep the winning streak alive.

Jeff Ledbetter contributed 19 points, including 4 for 5 from 3-point range, as the Spurs connected on 50 percent of their long-range shots. Austin finished the game 13 of 26 from deep.

Patricio Garino had the best night from beyond the arc, connecting on all four of his attempts. He finished the game with 18 points on 6 of 9 shooting.

Josh Gray of Northern Arizona led all scorers with 24 points. He added five rebounds and five assists in the effort.

Elijah Millsap scored 22 and pulled down seven rebounds for the Suns.

Austin took a three-point lead after the first quarter, but it was a strong second period that helped them take control of the game.

The Spurs outscored the Suns 30-19 in the second to take a 14-point lead into halftime.

The Suns (22-27) cut the lead to eight by the beginning of the fourth quarter but they never got over the hump.

Austin outrebounded Northern Arizona 50-36 and were led by Ryan Arcidiacono’s 10 boards.

Already eliminated from playoff contention, the Spurs will try to end the regular season with a winning record as they host the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Saturday at 7 p.m.
