SAN ANTONIO - LaMarcus Aldridge had a season-high 33 points as the San Antonio Spurs beat the Chicago Bulls 119-100 here on Sunday.

"Thirty assists makes a coach happy. We had a tough time there. We weren't as consisitent as I like to be, but 30 assists, hard to argue with. Low turnovers and high assists is a good combination," Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said after the game.

Aldridge also added nine rebounds. Kawhi Leonard finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. Tony Parker had 13 points and eight assists.

Dwyane Wade led the Bulls with 24 points, including 10 in the final quarter. Jimmy Butler had 19 points. All Chicago starters except Rajon Rondo scored in double figures. Rondo only had six points and two assists.

Chicago rallied from a 20-point deficit to lead by three points midway through the third quarter as Butler's 3-pointer gave Chicago its first lead at 70-67 with five minutes left in the third. But San Antonio regained its double-digit lead at 95-82 on consecutive 3-pointers by Danny Green to put the game beyond reach.
