Recap: Toronto vs. San Antonio

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Tony Parker netted 11 of his 32 points over two overtimes in the San Antonio Spurs' 111-106 win over the Toronto Raptors.

Parker's back-to-back pull-up jumpers from the left elbow over the final two minutes of the second overtime helped the Spurs hang on.

"We got to get more production than just DeMar," Raptors head coach Dwane Casey said.

Andrea Bargnani scored four points on just 2-of-19 shooting in the loss.

Parker stole Jose Calderon's inbound pass with 24.9 ticks remaining in the initial overtime and raced the other way for the layup and a 94-90 lead.

Kyle Lowry quickly answered with a 3-pointer before Ginobili made two free throws for a 96-93 Spurs edge with 15.6 left.

DeRozan's dunk cut the gap to one and Gary Neal made 1-of-2 from the charity stripe at the other end. DeRozan then drove on Duncan and put back his own rebound with 0.9 remaining to knot the game at 97-97 and send it into another extra session.

Danny Green's trey with 4:43 to go in the second overtime put the Spurs up for good.
