Spurs 104, Pacers 97

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 23, 2012
Tony Parker scored 33 points and the San Antonio Spurs erased a 17-point deficit on their way to a 104-97 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. Tim Duncan had 22 points for San Antonio (10-3), which closed the game with a 17-2 run. Manu Ginobili scored 19. David West scored 22 for the Pacers (6-8), and Paul George finished with 15. George Hill collected 11 points and Roy Hibbert had 10. Parker made his first eight shots and scored 16 in the first quarter to help San Antonio take a 28-25 lead into the second quarter. The Pacers responded with a 9-0 run in the second and led 52-48 at the break. West scored seven points and Lance Stephenson had four as the Pacers went on a 13-1 run to build a 70-53 lead with 6:35 to play in the third. But Ginobili and the Spurs responded with an impressive rally. The 35-year-old Ginobili was seemingly everywhere, driving the lane, taking shots from beyond the arc and finding his teammates for open baskets. He scored seven points and Parker added six as the Spurs closed the period with a 20-7 run. Indiana grabbed a 95-90 lead on Hill's jumper from the free-throw line with 5:30 to play. It then missed its last 11 shots, managing just two free throws by West down the stretch. Gary Neal fueled San Antonio's final surge with two free throws and a basket. Parker hit a jumper from the free-throw line and Duncan followed with a jumper from the top of the key and a layup after a scramble for a loose ball. Parker sank two free throws for a 103-95 lead with 1:33 to play. West made two free throws with 55 seconds left, but Parker hit a foul shot with 25 seconds to go.
