NEW ORLEANS -- Tim Duncan stood under New Orleans basket for several seconds, a bemused expression on his face, seemingly pondering how he could have fouled out with half a quarter still left in a surprisingly tight contest between the Western Conference-leading Spurs the reeling New Orleans Pelicans. As Duncan finally starting walking to the bench, with mocking cheers raining down from the stands, Spurs point guard Tony Parker decided it was time for him to take over. Parker capped a 27-point outing with three clutch layups in the final minutes, and the Spurs held on for their fifth straight victory, 101-95 on Monday night. "I was in attack mode," Parker said. "When I saw TD go out, I knew I was going to be aggressive and try to create for myself or for my teammates." Duncan scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds before fouling out with 6:02 to go. Manu Ginobili added 14 points, Kawhi Leonard 13 and Marco Belinelli 12 for San Antonio, which sent hobbled New Orleans to its sixth straight loss since leading scorer Ryan Anderson went out with a herniated disk. Anthony Davis had 22 points and 11 rebounds, while Brian Roberts, starting at point guard for the injured Jrue Holiday (fracture right tibia), scored a season-high 19 points for New Orleans. Eric Gordon added 12 points and Al-Farouq Aminu pulled down 13 rebounds. "We really dont like moral victories, but we came in and competed," Roberts said. "Unfortunately, they made plays down the stretch. They are a veteran team. They are going to keep their composure through those stretches. Hats off to them. New Orleans led from late in the first quarter until late in the third, when Parkers 17-foot jumper gave the Spurs a 74-73 lead. The shot was part of an 11-0 run, capped by Matt Bonners 3, that put San Antonio ahead 79-73 early in the fourth quarter. New Orleans, however, declined to fold, and kept it close into the final minute. "They made it hard on us. We were in survive mode in that first (half)," Parker said. "You have to give them a lot of credit. They played with a lot of energy and it was hard to get that win." Davis running hook as he was fouled by Duncan gave New Orleans one more brief lead at 87-86 with 7:08 to play. San Antonio regained the lead on Parkers layup, but then Duncan fouled out when he tried to stop Gordons drive. Gordon missed the second of two free throws to tie it, however, the Pelicans were further hurt by three turnovers down the stretch, two by Davis and one by Aminu. San Antonio led 94-90 on Belinellis 3, but Roberts came right back with a 3 for New Orleans. Leonard responded with a 3 of his own, but Roberts runner off the glass pulled New Orleans to 97-95 with 1:46 still left. Gordons steal set up a potential tying possession, but Davis short jumper rimmed out, and Parker converted a difficult reverse scoop with 44 seconds left to make it 99-95. The Pelicans set up Roberts for a quick 3, but it rimmed out and New Orleans did not threaten again. "We had our chances tonight and we just didnt execute down the stretch. We had three costly turnovers in the last few minutes of the game," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. "We had 87 looks tonight -- 87 shots. We just need to put the ball in the basket." The Pelicans managed to open up a double digit lead in the second quarter when Anthony Morrows floater made it 41-30. The Spurs quickly closed the gap later in the period with an 8-0 run capped by consecutive layups by Duncan and Parker. The Pelicans maintained the lead for the rest of the half, but Belinelli, who played for New Orleans when the club was called the Hornets, hit a 20-foot fadeaway to pull San Antonio to 51-50 at halftime.

The Raptors have to get through the pesky New York Knicks Wednesday at Madison Square Garden and can lock up the third spot in the Eastern Conference with a win or a Chicago loss in Charlotte. One of the CFLs longest-serving commissioners is leaving the post. Mark Cohon will not return for a third term when his current contract expires in April, 2015. Now in his eighth season as CFL commissioner, only Jake Gaudaur (1968-1984) and Sydney Halter (1958-1966) have held the position as long. Cohon, 48, says he made the announcement now to give the CFLs board of governors time to recruit his replacement. A lucrative television deal, the return of Ottawa to the CFL, labour peace until 2018, a more stringent drug-testing policy and new stadium projects in Saskatchewan, Winnipeg, Hamilton and Ottawa will be among Cohons legacies. "Those were all things that were major projects to move this league along," Cohon told reporters Wednesday on a conference call. "The thing I can be proud of is we built this great foundation for the next individual to build upon and for the board of governors to build upon." The weak position of the Argonauts in Torontos sports landscape and expansion into Atlantic Canada are unfinished business for Cohon, and a concussion lawsuit against the CFL was filed last month. Cohon says he will continue to work on improving the Argos situation before he departs. "Whats next for me is looking tape on Monday, doing discipline on Monday, closing sponsorship deals and getting ready for the Grey Cup, making an announcement on who the halftime act is at the Grey Cup and focusing on the business at hand," he said. "I havent even thought whats next for me. Im confident in my abilities in terms of thinking about what I can do. That will be another chapter, another story and another interview for another time." He took over as commissioner in 2007 from Tom Wright and signed a contract extension in February, 2012. During the 100th anniversary of the Grey Cup in Toronto that year, he told reporters "Im happy where I am, Im challenged and I hope to be around for a while.&qquot; But Cohon says hes checked off the important items on a checklist he compiled in 2007.dddddddddddd "I looked at that list and said you know what? Its probably the right time for me," he said. "Ive loved this job and I love this job. But I think there is a point in anyones career that you look at it and say OK, Im 48 years old. Im going to be 49 at the end of my term. "Building that infrastructure around our stadiums was critical. I think our TV deal was another critical moment for us in building that financial stability. "Probably because its so new and exciting, less than a month ago when I stood on the field and saw that sea of red and black in Ottawa and the team back in Ottawa, that is something I think Ill always remember." The five-year television deal with TSN and RDS worth a reported $40 million per year gives the CFL unprecedented financial stability. The labour unrest the deal created was resolved in June with a new five-year collective bargaining agreement. Cohon is working with Argonauts owner David Braley to get the team out of the Rogers Centre and into the more fan-friendly environment at BMO Field. "For us to continue to grow and be strong as a league, part of that is continuing to grow our strength in Toronto," Cohon said. "The path has been laid and thats something I want to continue to work on while Im here, but I think were in a good situation to continue on that dialogue." He says his successor must know how to work with "strong personalities" and build consensus among the leagues owners. "Any time you have an executive of Marks experience and accomplishments and his age, theres always the thought hes going to look for that next phase in his career," said Jim Lawson, chairman of the board of governors. "Its not a shock. Its a reality of business. Were in a much better position today after Marks tenure."
