Recap: New York vs. San Antonio

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Danny Green exemplified San Antonio's hot shooting, making 6-of-9 3-pointers en route to 24 points and had 10 rebounds as the Spurs beat the New York Knicks 120-89 in a Sunday matinee at Madison Square Garden.

Kawhi Leonard contributed 18 points off the bench on 7-of-10 shooting and fellow reserve Patty Mills added 15 points for the Spurs, who have won six of their first seven games this season.

Tim Duncan finished with 11 points -- nine on free throws -- and 10 boards in limited minutes in the one-sided game. Tony Parker missed only four of the 12 field goals he attempted and totaled 17 points with six assists, also in limited minutes.

"He played well," Parker said of Green. "He's a shooter, so he's going to shoot the ball and tonight he made them."

Carmelo Anthony and Andrea Bargnani both scored 16 points for New York, which is off to a sluggish 2-4 start.

"We didn't compete and that's just unacceptable," said Knicks coach Mike Woodson.

J.R. Smith, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, had five points on 1-of-9 shooting in his season debut. He was suspended for the first five games for violating the league's anti-drug program.

The Spurs opened the game on a 10-0 run and shot a sizzling 72.2 percent in the first quarter to take a comfortable 35-17 lead. The Knicks shot 28.6 percent in the quarter.

New York bounced back from its terrible start and narrowly outscored San Antonio (28-26) in the second quarter, but the shooting woes returned in a dismal third quarter. The Knicks converted only 3-of-18 field goals as the Spurs' advantage swelled to 35 points in the stanza.

San Antonio shot 53.9 percent from the field for the game and drained 12 3- pointers.
