Recap: San Antonio vs. Orlando

San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Tony Parker had 30 points and five assists and the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Orlando Magic, 121-112, on Saturday night.

Manu Ginobili tallied 24 points, Tim Duncan supplied 11 points and 10 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard added 17 points, seven boards and four assists for the Spurs, who have won six straight and nine of their last 10.

"We picked our defense up and got a little bit more physical in the second half," San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich said. "We finally got it done and I'm proud of them for that."

Tobias Harris provided 23 points and eight rebounds, while Nik Vucevic recorded 19 points and 13 rebounds for Orlando, which has dropped five of its last seven.

"I'm pretty happy with how we played offensively, but defensively we could have done a better job," Vucevic said.

After Harris' layup to begin the fourth got the Magic within 88-85, San Antonio ripped off seven straight points to open up its first double-digit lead of the contest.
