Aron Baynes records career-best tally in Spurs’ victory

AUSSIE Aron Baynes has played the best game of his NBA career, helping the San Antonio Spurs extend the agony felt by the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Queensland-raised 27-year-old hit a career-high 15 points, including 14 in the first half, as the Spurs won 109-103.

Baynes (pictured), who was a part of the NBA championship-winning Spurs side last season, scored the opening points of the game after starting as a replacement for the rested Tim Duncan.

Baynes scored 13 points in the Spurs' previous match - a 22-point win against Boston.

The result also meant a 17th straight loss for the 76ers, coached by former Boomers boss Brett Brown.

The 76ers can tie the Nets for the worst start in NBA history (18 losses in a row) tomorrow at Minnesota, with a potential chance to break the record at home on Saturday against Oklahoma City.
