San Antonio has now won 10 of its last 12 games. The Spurs are eighth in the Western Conference, but are just a half game behind the Thunder and Jazz and only one game behind the fifth-place Clippers so they have a great chance to move up in the standings.
Boston, which has lost four straight games, is fifth in the Eastern Conference.
The Celtics had a cold outing offensively, as Marcus Smart led the team with 14 points.
