SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs, led by Tony Parker's 19 points, held the lead the entire way and beat the Washington Wizards 96-86 Saturday night at the AT&T Center. However, they may have lost forward Tim Duncan to a knee injury for an specified length of time. Leading 40-23 in the second quarter, Washington's Martell Webster fell into Duncan, who crumpled to the floor clutching his left knee. He was helped to the locker room, although he was able to walk some of the way on his own. The team announced Duncan was diagnosed with a strained left knee and a strained right ankle. He did not return and there was no announcement of the severity of Duncan's injury. The Spurs have won 18th consecutive games at home, 14 straight against the Wizards and are 22-2 this season at home. Washington, which was without starting shooting guard Bradley Beal again with a sprained wrist, has never won at the AT&T Center. Kawhi Leonard added 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs, and Danny Green added 15 points. Washington's John Wall led all scorers with 21 points and nine assists. Webster added 14. The Spurs will now embark on their annual 9-game rodeo road trip. Their next home game will be Feb. 27 against the Suns. The Spurs (38-11) they built a 27-point lead five minutes into the third quarter. Instead of coasting the rest of the way, Washington put together a run and pulled to within 75-67 on a Trevor Ariza layup. NOTES: The Spurs and Wizards both hold their opponents to an average of 95.9 points per game, but the Spurs average 104.3 points while the Wizards only manage 90.9. ... The Spurs have had four injured players, Duncan, Manu Ginobili, DeJuan Blair and Matt Bonner, but only Ginobili (left hamstring) remained out against the Wizards. ... Wizards coach Randy Wittman on D-League pickup Garrett Temple who has been a part-time starter because of injuries. "He's a tough kid, and he plays hard. He's got good energy, and is a good defender. Those are the qualities he has, and those are some of the reasons he stuck with us. He knows his capabilities and what he can and can't do. It's a quality that can help you stay in the league." Temple has averaged 3.8 points in 16 games this season.
