WASHINGTON - The Washington Wizards beat the San Antonio Spurs for the first time since 2005.That means, of course, that John Wall beat the Spurs for the first time ever — within weeks of his first wins in head-to-head games against nemeses Chris Paul and Derrick Rose.But dig a little deeper down the roster, and there is Kevin Seraphin. Hes been around just as long as Wall and had been just as fruitless against an NBA squad that includes French national teammates Tony Parker and Boris Diaw.In the fourth quarter Tuesday night, Seraphin scored 11 of his season-high 17 points, grabbed five of his eight rebounds and had a momentum-swinging block in the 101-93 victory.Needless to say, the postgame Francophile reunion would feel a bit different from those in the past. Seraphin could hardly contain his smile as he thought about meeting up with his buddies.Its been a while. Definitely, kind of excited. Im kind of happy, he said. Im about to talk to Tony and Boris, so, yeah, thats good.The Wizards had dropped 17 straight to the Spurs. Seraphin was 0-8 lifetime; Wall was 0-7. Wall has been bursting similar barriers all season: He had a 0-6 one-on-one history against Paul before last months win over the Los Angeles Clippers, and last weeks victory over the Chicago Bulls ended a 0-5 mark of futility against Rose.Its finally good to win a game like this, against a top team, Wall said.The Wizards needed it. They lost by 31 points to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.Wall had 25 points and eight assists, but he didnt score in a fourth quarter won by Washingtons defence. Seraphin and Bradley Beal had blocks on back-to-back possessions, and consecutive turnovers by the usually sure-handed Manu Ginobili essentially sealed the game.Tim Duncan had 11 points and 12 rebounds, and Parker scored 14 points for the Spurs, who are having a more inconsistent season than the San Antonio norm because of injuries. Ginobili returned after missing one game with back spasms, and Marco Belinelli missed his second consecutive game with a mildly strained left groin.We just havent been consistent, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. It would be easier if we had two guys that were out this whole time and you knew who was going to be out every night, but every two to three games its different people, so thats made it a little bit tough on the guys.TIP-INSSpurs: Duncan passed Derek Fisher for all-time games played, moving into 16th place with 1,288. Duncan also moved into fifth place all-time with his 815th double-double, surpassing Karl Malone.Wizards: It was no contest when three-time Daytona 500 champion Jeff Gordon raced a fan on tricycles between the first and second quarters. Gordon zoomed around the two laps so far ahead that he waited for his competitor just before the finish line.WITTS WIT, TIMES TWOAsked about breaking the streak against the Spurs, Wizards coach Randy Wittman referenced the NBA champs meeting with President Barack Obama on Monday: I told Pop before the game, I think hes got a wing at the White House now. Hes been at the White House so many daggum times.Also, heres Wittman speaking to reporters about an item in the box score: Stats are for you guys and agents. You and agents are a lot alike.DIFFRENT STROKESSan Antonio took better care of the ball, but Washington shot and rebounded it better. The Spurs committed only two first-half turnovers before getting sloppy late to finish with nine, and they had assists on 26 of their 38 field goals. The Wizards shot 61 per cent in the first quarter and 49 per cent for the game, and Marcin Gortat (11 rebounds) led a 48-34 advantage on the boards.UP NEXTSpurs: Visit Charlotte on Wednesday.Wizards: Visit Chicago on Wednesday.___Follow Joseph White on Twitter: http://twitter.com/JGWhiteAP Devon Kennard Jersey

New York City FC introduced Frank Lampard in Brooklyn on Thursday after signing the 36-year-old former Chelsea midfielder to a two-year contract.MILWAUKEE -- Bobcats coach Steve Clifford liked his teams defence just as much as its offence. Jannero Pargo scored 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter to help the Charlotte Bobcats erase a 21-point deficit and rally for an 83-76 preseason victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night. The Bobcats outscored the Bucks 33-9 in the fourth quarter, opening the period with a 20-2 run sparked by Pargos 10 points. "That final group, obviously we scored 33, but we started defending," Clifford said. "Even in the third quarter, our defence was a lot better. Then when those guys went in, they stayed with the defence. We got stops, we got rebounds and then we were able to get out and get some easy baskets." Ramon Sessions, a former Buck, added seven points during the surge. "The two veteran guards, Ramon and Jannero, were really good," Clifford said. "Theyve been around. They know how to get ready to play. They take good care of themselves and they love to play." Blowing a 21-point lead didnt sit well with new Bucks head coach Larry Drew. "We came out flat in thee third, but we did pick it up," he said.dddddddddddd "We just didnt respond to their run. That was the most disturbing part about it, in not responding and just seeing the body language when the team got on the run. Were going to have to be better, much, much better." Caron Butler led the Bucks with 18 points, but was ejected with 12.7 seconds left. He scored 12 points during a 21-8 run bridging the second and third quarters to help the Bucks build their biggest lead, 58-37. Butler was arguing with referee Steven Anderson about the foul called on John Henson who was fighting Bismack Biyombo for a rebound at the Bobcats basket. "It was a physical game the whole game," Henson said. "A bang-bang play like that, I was kind of surprised on the call. But, thats the way the game goes." Biyombo grabbed 21 rebounds starting at centre for Al Jefferson, who sprained his right ankle in the Bobcats 86-75 loss to the Miami Heat on Friday. The Bucks (0-3) were without Ekpe Udoh, who is expected to be out four to six weeks after having surgery on his right knee Thursday.
