Tony Parker finished with 31 points and 10 assists to lead the Spurs while Rockets' James Harden totaled 33 points, 7 assists and 5 boards. The Spurs are coming off a 104-97 overtime win over the Jazz in San Antonio. Parker finished with 22 points and 5 assists in his first game back since dealing with a left ankle injury. In the game, Tim Duncan surpassed Shaquille O’Neal on the NBA’s all-time career rebounding list for the 13th spot. Coach Gregg Popovich also won his 900th game of his career. The Rockets are coming off a 116-78 win versus Cleveland in Houston. Harden paced the Rockets with 20 points in the win.
