Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - San Antonio finally got its "Big Three" back on the floor, but it was Kawhi Leonard who stole the show on Wednesday.

Leonard buried a go-ahead 3-pointer with 2.9 seconds left off a nice feed from Tony Parker to lift the San Antonio Spurs to a 96-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.

Leonard finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Parker poured in a game-high 24 points to go with seven assists and six rebounds for the Spurs, who head into the All-Star break on a three-game winning streak.

Parker returned after missing Monday's win with right knee soreness, while Tim Duncan (left knee soreness) played for the first time in four games and Manu Ginobili (left hamstring) returned from a five-game absence.

Duncan donated 13 points and six rebounds and Ginobili added five points and six assists off the bench to help San Antonio earn its 14th win in its last 15 games.

Dion Waiters led Cleveland with 20 points and six rebounds, while Tyler Zeller chipped in 16 points and nine boards for the Cavs, who have lost three straight on the heels of a three-game winning streak.
