       SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ Kawhi Leonard scored 26 points and the San Antonio Spurs played their second consecutive solid home game, holding off the Boston Celtics 108-101 on Wednesday night.

        Spurs point guard Tony Parker had 16 points, including 10 in the final period. Parker was 8 for 15 from the field, including a turn-back-the-clock, teardrop floater in the first quarter over a hard-charging Amir Johnson after crossing over Marcus Smart.

        San Antonio has won three straight at the AT&T Center after dropping three of its first four at home. The Spurs (20-5) are 7-4 at home after matching an NBA record with a 40-1 mark last season.

        The Spurs had 33 assists on 44 field goals while shooting 55 percent from the field.

        Boston was without injured leading scorer Isaiah Thomas. San Antonio rested starting power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, and both teams showed off their depth.
