The San Antonio Spurs, not quite ready to be written off as too old and too slow to claim an NBA crown, routed the Los Angeles Clippers 115-90 on Wednesday.

Manu Ginobili scored 24 points, leading six Spurs players who scored in double figures. DeJuan Blair added 20 and Richard Jefferson chipped in 19.

Tony Parker scored 14 points with nine assists, Tim Duncan scored 10 with eight rebounds and James Anderson added 12 off the bench as the Spurs shot 56.3 percent from the field.

Spurs also made all 15 of their free throws, but coach Gregg Popovich said defense was the real key to the victory.

Meanwhile, Dwyane Wade banked in the game-winning shot with 2.9 seconds remaining as the Miami Heat rallied to edge Charlotte 96-95.
