Recap


Tony Parker scored 10 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter as the San Antonio Spurs beat Golden State for the 27th straight time at home, rallying for a 101-95 victory over the Warriors on Wednesday.

Parker hit two key jumpers in the final two minutes to lead the Spurs, who have won 13 straight overall meetings with the Warriors.

Tim Duncan added 15 points and 11 rebounds as San Antonio won its first game without injured swingman Manu Ginobili (broken metatarsal).

Monta Ellis had 38 points in defeat while Stephen Curry scored 20 points and added eight assists before leaving with yet an ankle injury - his third already this season. Curry twisted his ankle while carrying the ball up court in the third quarter, then hobbled off the floor and went straight back to the locker room.

The Warriors initially persevered in Curry's absence, carrying a five-point lead into the fourth quarter. The Spurs stayed close before finally taking advantage with 4:03 remaining, pulling ahead on a Richard Jefferson 3-pointer.

Warriors center Kwame missed four straight free throws with just over two minutes remaining, and Parker made it a five-point game with a 16-footer. Ellis buried a 3-pointer to trim the deficit to two, but that's as close as Golden State would get.
