Tony Parker scored 25 points, Tim Duncan delivered another double-double and the San Antonio Spurs blew out the Dallas Mavericks, 112-90, on Wednesday night. It's the team's 13th victory in its past 17 games.
After jumping out to a 15-4 lead, the Spurs led throughout the game despite the Mavericks' best efforts to keep things close. San Antonio really put the game away for good in the third quarter, going on a 23-10 run after the team's lead was trimmed to eight points.
Parker had an efficient night for the Spurs, shooting 10-of-15 from the field and dishing seven assists. He also committed six turnovers -- Dallas had just seven as a team -- but the Spurs' turnover issues hardly mattered on a night where they held a 55-32 rebounding advantage.
With Tiago Splitter and Manu Ginobili sitting, Jeff Ayres and Marco Belinelli stepped up off the bench. Ayres grabbed nine rebounds in just 11 minutes of action, while Belinelli went 6-of-9 for 17 points in 25 minutes.
Monta Ellis led Dallas with 21 points on 10-of-18 shooting in the loss. Dirk Nowitzki struggled badly against the Duncan-led Spurs frontline, shooting 3-of-14 from the field en route to just eight points.
