San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Tony Parker was among eight San Antonio
players in double figures with 13 points, but the All-Star guard sprained his
left ankle in the third quarter of the Spurs' 130-102 blowout of the
DeJuan Blair had 16 points, while Danny Green scored 15. Manu Ginobili had
nine points and a career-high 15 assists, as the Spurs bounced back from a
105-101 overtime loss at home against Phoenix on Wednesday. That defeat
snapped an 18-game home winning streak.
Tiago Splitter ended with 14 points and 11 rebounds, while Tim Duncan
contributed 13 points and 10 boards.
Parker drove the lane for a layup with under five minutes left in the period,
but he landed awkwardly as the ankle buckled upon hitting the floor. Parker
was helped off the court.
Prior to leaving, Parker also had seven assists. He sat out a game at Phoenix
on Sunday due to a right triceps contusion.
Marcus Thornton scored 25 and Isaiah Thomas had 18 points for the Kings, who
lost for the 17th time in the last 18 meetings with the Spurs. Tyreke Evans
scored 10, but the Kings fell for the seventh time in their last eight games.
