Recap: San Antonio vs. Denver

San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Kawhi Leonard scored 25 points and pulled down eight rebounds, and Tony Parker added 24 points in San Antonio's 120-111 win over the Denver Nuggets.

The Spurs, who have won four in a row and are in seventh place in the Western Conference standings, received 15 points from Tim Duncan. He also had three blocks, which moved him to 2,895 for his career, one past Patrick Ewing for sixth place on the NBA's all-time list.

Danny Green provided 11 points and Tiago Splitter scored 10 for the Spurs, who have won their first two contests of a six-game homestand after a 4-5 rodeo road trip.

It was an efficient night for Parker, who went 10-of-15 from the field and had seven assists.

"He's healthy, he's getting his rhythm back, which helps you get your confidence back," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

Ty Lawson scored 23 with nine assists for the Nuggets, who lost for the seventh time in nine games. Kenneth Faried provided 20 points and 10 boards.

Faried's short jumper brought the Nuggets within 110-107 with 2:34 left, but Green countered by draining a 3-pointer. That marked the start of a 7-0 run, which was capped by two Manu Ginobili free throws with 30.1 seconds to go. Those shots came a half-minute after Leonard provided extra distance with a 16-foot jumper.

Lawson scored 16 of his points in the first half, but Duncan missed only one of his seven shots from the field over the opening 24 minutes. It yielded a 65-60 Spurs halftime edge.

Denver fell behind by 10 in the third, but was within 90-83 moving to the fourth.
