SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Jermaine O'Neal had 22 points and 13 rebounds, Wesley Johnson hit a 3-pointer at the end of regulation to force overtime and the Phoenix Suns beat San Antonio 105-101 Wednesday night to snap the Spurs' 18-game home winning streak. Luis Scola added 15 points and Goran Dragic had 13 points and 13 assists for Phoenix, which snapped a six-game losing streak against San Antonio. Tony Parker had 22 points to lead the Spurs, who had not lost at home since Dec. 1 against the Los Angeles Clippers. Tim Duncan had 19 points and 11 rebounds and DeJuan Blair and Kawhi Leonard added 15 points apiece. San Antonio went 0 for 10 in overtime, its only points in the extra period coming when Parker made 1 of 2 free throws. Returning from a 25-day road trip due to the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, the Spurs (45-14) appeared to have the game in hand following a strong third quarter by Parker. Amid cries of "MVP," Parker had 10 points in the period as San Antonio extended its lead to double digits. His assist to Duncan with 10 minutes left in the third gave the Spurs a 56-45 lead and his 10-foot jumper put them up 69-58. Leonard's 3 with 1.1 seconds gave San Antonio a 77-67 lead entering the fourth. The Suns rallied, pulling within 97-95 with less than a minute remaining on Marcus Morris' 3. Parker attempted to keep the Spurs ahead, tossing in a floater, a jump shot and feeding Duncan for a jumper that gave San Antonio a 99-97 lead with 11 seconds left. Manu Ginobili made one of two free throws with 3.7 seconds left to make it 100-97. Johnson's 3 at the buzzer tied the game at 100 and sent it to overtime. Both teams went a combined 0 for 14 to open overtime. Marcin Gortat's tip follow was the first basket of overtime, giving Phoenix a 102-101 lead with 1:07 left.
