Parker, Duncan propel Spurs to blowout

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 16, 2013
Tony Parker had 17 points and 11 assists and Tim Duncan added 19 points to help the San Antonio Spurs beat the Memphis Grizzlies 103-82 on Wednesday night, extending their home winning streak to 13 games. The Spurs shot 58 percent from the field in becoming just the third team to score more than 100 points against the Grizzlies.Boris Diaw added 14, Kawhi Leonard 13 and Tiago Splitter 10 for San Antonio (30-11). Rudy Gay scored 17 points as all five starters scored in double figures for Memphis (24-13), which lost its third straight. Marc Gasol had 12 points, Tony Allen and Zach Randolph each had 11 and Mike Conley 10. San Antonio went 11 for 20 from the field in outscoring Memphis 25-15 in the third quarter. Parker, Leonard and Danny Green combined for 18 in the period. Leonard's 3 extended San Antonio's lead to 80-69 with 2 minutes left in third, causing Gasol to stare puzzlingly at his teammates on the missed defensive assignment. The Spurs' dominance in the final two quarters came after a closely contested first half. The Grizzlies closed the first quarter on a 19-8 run following a timeout by coach Lionel Hollins. The run included a two-handed dunk by Gay, who soared through the lane to rebound and throw down a missed 3-pointer by Randolph in one motion. Trailing by as many as six points early in the second quarter, the Spurs rallied behind 13 assists and four 3s. Jackson and Neal hit consecutive 3s to pull and keep the Spurs within two and Diaw gave them a 40-38 lead with a layup and short jumper. Notes: Spurs G Manu Ginobili (left hamstring) missed his fifth game of the season. . Grizzlies F Quincy Pondexter (MCL strain) did not play. . San Antonio is 5-3 to start January after going 12-4 in December. . The Spurs have scored at least 100 points in every game during their home winning streak with the exception of a 99- 94 victory over New Orleans on Dec. 21. . San Antonio has won 16 of 17 home games against Memphis. . The Spurs are the only active franchise with a .500 or better record in the regular season against every existing NBA team.
