SAN ANTONIO -- Tony Parker carried the Spurs in the fourth quarter Saturday, leading San Antonio to a 108-99 victory over the Phoenix Suns at the AT&T Center. Parker scored 31 for San Antonio, making 13 of 17 shots. He had 11 points, five assists and two steals in the fourth quarter, when the Spurs outscored Phoenix 27-17. As Phoenix called a timeout with 6:21 left in the game, Parker began to motion to the crowd for more noise and they responded. “I was just excited and the fans were behind us so it felt nice,” Parker said. “It was a tough game because we had a tough time matching Phoenix’s energy.
