San Antonio, Texas: The San Antonio Spurs set a franchise record by holding the Brooklyn Nets to just five points in the third quarter, en route to 104-73 win in the NBA on Monday.

It was the least points the Spurs had ever conceded in a quarter, and ensured the Nets suffered their first loss under interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo.

Elsewhere on New Year's Eve, in-form Indiana went top of the Central Division by beating Memphis, Houston responded to its heaviest defeat of the season and beat Atlanta, Oklahoma City won its 12th straight home game by downing Phoenix, and the Miami Heat needed overtime to edge Orlando.
