SAN ANTONIO -- New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said the San Antonio Spurs will quickly expose any teams weakness.The Pelicans learned not only do they have a lot to work on, they also need some rest.Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and the Spurs beat the Pelicans 98-79 on Saturday night in their home opener.We didnt have the same energy that were usually playing with, Pelicans forward Anthony Davis said. We wasnt making shots. There was some miscommunication. Against a team like this, you cant have plays where we have a mental breakdown, thats what they want and they always capitalize. We had seven turnovers in the first half and they scored on every turnover.The Spurs won their first home opener in 20 years without Tim Duncan, who retired in the offseason. San Antonio played without any of its Big Three as Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili both sat out to rest in the first night of back-to-back games.San Antonio didnt appear to miss them, as 11 players were part of a balanced-scoring effort that helped the team remain unbeaten after three games.Patty Mills scored 18 points starting in place of Parker. Mills was 4 for 7 on 3-pointers, including one at the close of the first half to give San Antonio a 55-45 lead.I thought the play at the end of the first half was a big play, Gentry said. Instead of a seven-point game, its a 10-point game. Patty makes a 3-pointer. We never really got him picked up. You cant make those kind of mistakes.LaMarcus Aldridge added 12 points along with solid defense against the leagues leading scorer.Davis was held to 18 points after scoring 50 and 45 points in the seasons first two games. He was limited to 3:13 in the final quarter as San Antonio led by as many as 27 points in the fourth.I got some shots I wanted, Davis said. I got some jumpers that I wanted, just missed them. Im not worried about offense, really. Shots are going to come. I just want to get everybody else going and try to find a way to find a win.Davis took only nine shots in the first half.Aldridge picked up three fouls in the first half as Davis primary defender, but still managed to hold the 6-foot-10 forward to 6-for-15 shooting in the game.(Aldridge) did a good job, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. Anthonys obviously a great player. We just wanted to work on individual `D. So, we didnt give him any help, we just let him guard him. In the future that may not be what we do.ETwaun Moore also had 18 points for New Orleans (0-3).Leonard added four rebounds and three assists and was 2 for 4 on 3-pointers.The 6-7 forward worked on drawing more fouls in the offseason and it continued to pay off, earning Leonard early MVP chants from the sellout crowd. He was 6 for 6 on free throws, raising his season total to 28 for 28.The only time I hear it is when I come to the games, Leonard said of the chants. I would never try to win an award. Im out there just playing for my team. If I get noticed for my individual performance, then thats what happens. But other than that, Im trying to win a game.TIP-INSPelicans: Davis played 32 minutes, raising his season total to 113.

Popovich chastised Jonathan Simmons for offensive goaltending when he dunked Laprovittolas layup as it was still on the cylinder. The veteran coach pointed to his head to signal the second-year player should be wiser. Simmons responded in the final quarter with a thunderous dunk over 7-2 center Alexis Ajinca. Simmons finished with 11 points. . Bertans missed his first shot of the season after making his first three attempts, including two 3-pointers.SIT DOWNPopovich opted to rest Parker and Ginobili even though it is the Spurs third game of the season. Popovich is not a fan of the congested early schedule.Everybody goes through this, Popovich said. This is our third game in five nights. Tomorrow is going to be four games in six nights. Its ridiculous. (New Orleans) played at 8:30 last night and they have to play a back-to-back tonight. Seems like you could figure that out.The Pelicans were coming off a 122-114 loss at home to Golden State Warriors.UP NEXTPelicans: Host Milwaukee on Tuesday.Spurs: At Miami on Sunday.

The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. Jamaica Tallawahs captain Chris Gayle has thrown his support behind making a USA leg an annual part of the Caribbean Premier Leagues schedule, and has said he hopes the league will come back next year for the good of cricket in the US.Speaking at the Tallawahs training session on Monday at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida, Gayle said that in order for the effort to get into the US market to succeed, it had to be on a consistent basis rather than the one-and-done events of the past. Gayle has toured the USA with West Indies teams to New York in 2006 and Florida in 2012, and believes the fan base is present to support cricket but that the lack of regular events has stifled momentum.I think the US is cricket-orientated, Gayle said. When you look at the mixed culture here over in the US, I think you have a huge cricket base and cricket fans over here as well. I think the cricket from a West Indies point of view has been trying to break into the US market for years now. We havent been successful so its just always a bit of here and there.Hopefully the CPL will actually be consistent with having games here in the US. If its just a one-off thing, then itll be a problem for the game of cricket in the United States as well. If it can actually progress, I know this leg will be a good one for CPL and if it can continue next year and keep letting the people here in the US get a chance to see it live, then it should be a fantastic thing for the game of cricket here in the US as well.The most recent tour in 2012 provided good memories for Gayle. Opening the batting for West Indies in the first of two T20 internationals against New Zealand, Gayle struck an unbeaten 85 off 52 balls and combined with Kieron Pollard for a 108-run stand in the final 6.5 overs to post a total of 209 for 2, a record for the side which stood until January 2015. A series sweep over New Zealand in Florida set the tone for their World T20 triumph over Sri Lanka a few months later and Gayle said he was happy to be back in Lauderhill.It was a great memory to be honest with you, Gayle said. When you look back at it, you are always thinking what sort of wicket youre going to get to play on because a lot of cricket up here is playeed on the matting.dddddddddddd We played on a wicket that was very good to bat on. I dont see any difference since Ive just been out there from what happened in the past. So it should be a good wicket and hopefully a lot of runs can be scored on the wicket as well which will actually make the game more interesting.Its like here in the Caribbean. The sun is out, the beach is just down the road as well. I know everybodys looking forward to it. South Beach is a bit further away and everybodys having a good time as well. But its just good to be back and Im looking forward to the opportunity to play here again. Hopefully this will be a new beginning for CPL and will hope it progress over the next few years as well.Gayle also recalled the first-day sellout crowd of 15,000 people in 2012 for the West Indies matches. Though attendance has been capped for the CPL at 10,000, Gayle expects the atmosphere to be just as lively and is hoping the sizeable Jamaican expat population will give Tallawahs a boost for their games against St Lucia Zouks on Saturday and Sunday to help maintain their hold on the first place heading into the playoffs.When West Indies actually played New Zealand here, the turnout was tremendous, Gayle said. I think the CPL will bring out the crowd once more. The atmosphere that theyve seen on TV, Im sure they want to experience it for themselves as well so hopefully we get a good [crowd to] start on Thursday and then itll progress over the weekend as well. So it should be a good one and Im looking forward to it.Im happy on a personal point of view as well and as a team point of view to actually be at the top of the table. So hopefully we can actually maintain the momentum which we left in Jamaica and come in here and play against the Zouks on Saturday and Sunday, win at least one of those games and then move on to the final.Im sure youll see some Jamaican flags flying around. The support is actually good for us. Itll be noisy, its going to be a great atmosphere and hopefully everybody at the end of the day can walk away happy and then well move on to the finals in St Kitts.
