    Hello, teachers,
    Could you tell me what the words I highlighted mean?

    THE San Antonio Spurs beat the Los Angeles Lakers 105-85 on Tuesday, extending a poor run of road form for the NBA Champions who also lost Kobe Bryant to injury.

    Tim Duncan had 25 points and 13 rebounds as the Spurs handed the Lakers to their fourth straight road defeat, their first such run of losses since 2007.

    Re: Road

    This is talking about matches played at their opponents venues or stadiums. They are not playing well when they have to travel. They have lost 4 games in a row at their opponents venues although they may well have won games at home in between

    As a note in Br. English we would talk about "away" form.
