DALLAS -- The streaking San Antonio Spurs were already without ill coach Gregg Popovich and All-Star forward Tim Duncan. Then they lost All-Star point guard Tony Parker for all but three minutes of the first quarter after two cuts to his left eye that would require three stitches to close. None of it stopped the Spurs from continuing their season-long demolition of the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night at American Airlines Center. San Antonio added a 113-107 victory -- a score not indicative of the lead San Antonio held most of the game -- to victory margins of 38 and 25 points in the first two meetings. The Spurs have now won seven in a row and improved their record to 35-11, taking their last two without Duncan, who's nursing a sore left knee, and Popovich, who has been knocked out by an illness. "They have our number and it is what it is," Mavs forward Shawn Marion said. "We can do anything and everything sometimes and they seem to just get what they want a...
