Nicolas Batum Marked On Tony Parker At Buzzer Beater

Nicolas Batum scored over Tony Parker at the buzzer and the Portland Trail Blazers edged the San Antonio Spurs 98-96 on Friday night.

Batum finished with 21 points for the Blazers, who won their sixth straight game at the Rose Garden, and their sixth in a row at home against the Spurs.

Notes: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said he wouldn't change much because of Duncan's absence: "It's so late in the season, it's hard to change what you've been doing all year."
