      BOSTON (AP) – Rajon Rondo had 22 assists, 12 points and 10
rebounds for his 11th career triple-double, adding six steals to
help the Boston Celtics beat the San Antonio Spurs 105-103 on
Wednesday night in a matchup of the NBA's top two teams.
      It's the first time this season that the Spurs (29-6), who still
have the best record in the NBA, have lost back-to-back games.
      Ray Allen scored 31 for Boston, but he missed a pair of free
throws with 8.1 seconds left and Boston leading by two. After a
timeout, Manu Ginobili worked down the clock and put up a shot that
was blocked by Paul Pierce and pulled down by Rondo for his 10th
rebound.
      Ginobili had 24 points and eight rebounds for San Antonio.
