SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs got 24 points and 10 rebounds from Tim Duncan as they defeated the Golden State Warriors 95-88 Friday night, and extended their home win streak to 14. The Spurs, who have dominated the series against the Warriors by winning 28 consecutive home games, were in danger of ending the longest single streak against an NBA team. Behind by as much as eight in the third quarter, and struggling to match Golden State basket-for-basket, San Antonio got a late-quarter push from Tony Parker to go up 78-73. The Warriors tied it 82-82 with 6 minutes left in the fourth, then the Spurs went on a 13-4 run that was highlighted by Danny Green's 3-pointer with 1:30 left. That was enough to put the Spurs on top the rest of the way. Parker had nine of his 25 points in the third period and added eight assists. Tiago Splitter added 19 and Green 13 as the Spurs improved to 31-11. Golden State was without its leading scorer, Stephen Curry, who is nursing a right ankle sprain. His replacement, Jarrett Jack, scored 20 points, while David Lee had 22 and Klay Thompson 20 as Golden State's record dropped to 23-15. The Warriors set the tempo early, and defended San Antonio at the arc. The Spurs, second in the league in 3-point shooting, struggled from the 3-point line going 5 of 22 (23 percent). San Antonio's bench was held to only 14 points, but outscored the Warriors 44-28 in the paint. Duncan, who was dogged by early foul trouble, picked up his third foul 4:48 left in the second quarter and sat on the bench until the second half. The Warriors took it inside behind Carl Landry's 15 first-half points, and led 47-46 going into the locker room. Landry did not score in the second half. Notes: The second half of the game was delayed approximately 15 minutes as the game crew replaced a bent rim on one of the baskets. ... The Spurs have been on one of the hottest home winning streaks in franchise history. Their 14-game streak is the longest since 2011, when they won a franchise-high 22 games. ... The last time Golden State won in San Antonio was February 14, 1997, four months before Duncan was drafted. ... Warriors forward Richard Jefferson played two seasons for San Antonio before being traded to Golden State, along with guard T.J. Ford and a first round draft pick, for Stephen Jackson.
