Recap: San Antonio vs. Sacramento

San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Kawhi Leonard had 21 points, Tony Parker added 19 and the San Antonio Spurs routed the Sacramento Kings 112-85 on Wednesday night.

Manu Ginobili, Danny Green and Marco Belinelli netted 13 points apiece for the Spurs, who have won three in a row on the heels of a four-game losing streak.

"He looked like he was more aggressive. That's what we have to have from him," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of Parker.

DeMarcus Cousins, who battled foul trouble in the first half, provided 14 points to lead Sacramento, which has dropped four of its last six games.

"When he got in foul trouble in the first half, I think that gave San Antonio that inner confidence," Kings coach George Karl said.

The Spurs, who trailed 27-26 following a quarter of play, began to pull away during the latter stages of the second with an 8-0 spurt.

Holding a 42-36 advantage after a Rudy Gay steal and dunk, Ginobili highlighted the flurry with a three-point play to extend the Spurs' margin to 50-36.

They led 54-38 at the break.

Ginobili's driving layup in the waning seconds of the third staked San Antonio to an 85-61 spread heading into the fourth, where it built its advantage to as many as 40 en route to the easy win.
