The Austin Spurs held off a late charge from the Reno Bighorns to earn a 115-106 win in front of 1,275 fans inside the Reno Events Center on Tuesday night.
DeShaun Thomas led Austin with 20 points and 10 rebounds, while Orlando Johnson added 18 for the Spurs, who improved to 4-1 on the road.
Austin had six players in double figures and outscored Reno 35-20 in the third quarter. However, the Bighorns responded in the fourth with a 35-23 quarter of their own and shot 60 percent, but their rally fell short.
