Short-handed Spurs outlast Warriors 99-90
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Tony Parker had 20 points and five assists, Danny Green scored 18 points and the short-handed San Antonio Spurs outlasted the Golden State Warriors 99-90 Saturday night for their 13th straight victory.
Tiago Splitter added 17 points and 14 rebounds as the NBA-leading Spurs (53-16) pulled away with an 11-0 run early in the fourth quarter. San Antonio, riding its longest winning streak in six years, is two games ahead of Oklahoma City for the top playoff seed in the Western Conference.
The Spurs did it even while resting stars Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. They are 3-0 against Golden State this season, including two wins in Oakland without their regulars, after eliminating the Warriors in the second round of the playoffs last year.
Stephen Curry scored 20 points to go with six assists and six rebounds, and Andrew Bogut grabbed 17 boards as the Warriors head into a five-day break on a sour note.
The Warriors (44-27) had won three straight but missed a chance to move up in the playoff chase after Portland lost at Charlotte. Golden State is still in sixth place in the West, 1
