The Indiana Pacers looked to play spoiler on Monday night as they hosted the San Antonio Spurs.
San Antonio came into the game having won its past 17 games and holding the top spot in the Western Conference. The Pacers, on the other hand, had lost their last two and five of the past 10.
Indiana's woes continued, as it failed to reach 80 points for the third consecutive contest in a 103-77 loss. The Pacers now share the No. 1 seed in the East after the Miami Heat overcame the Toronto Raptors on Monday.
Meanwhile, the Spurs set a franchise record with their 18th win in a row, further separating themselves from the rest of the West.
Tony Parker led a well-rounded effort with 22 points.
