NBA Game Summary - Minnesota at San Antonio



(Friday, December 13th)

Final Score: San Antonio 117, Minnesota 110

San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Tony Parker scored a team-high 29 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 117-110 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves from AT&T Center.

Manu Ginobili contributed 20 points off the bench and Kawhi Leonard netted a season-high 19 points for San Antonio, which snapped a two-game losing streak against Minnesota.

Tim Duncan added a double-double with 12 points and 14 rebounds.

Kevin Love had a game-high 42 points with 14 boards, while Nikola Pekovic also recorded a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin scored 15 and 14 points, respectively, in the setback.

"Manu's play, Tony's play, they all have great energy," said Duncan when referring to the fourth quarter. "We didn't play a great three quarters but Manu hit some big shots, I thought Kawhi was great as well and obviously Tony has been carrying us all year."

After a 3-pointer from Love put Minnesota up 98-91 early in the fourth quarter, Parker hit a triple and then converted a three-point play on the following possession to make it a one-point deficit.

Ginobili tied it at 102 with a 3-pointer a couple of minutes later.

Minnesota led 108-107 when San Antonio's "Big 3" put the game away. Duncan hit a layup, which was followed by back-to-back layups from Ginobili and Parker.

Martin hit two free throws and Parker hit a tough layup in traffic to extend the lead to 115-110 and seal it for the hosts.

"I thought we played well," said Minnesota head coach Rick Adelman. "If we can play like that and get a little bit better defensively we're going to win ball games."

Leonard opened the third quarter with a dunk for a 64-54 Spurs lead and the Timberwolves proceeded to go on a 12-0 run to grab the lead.

Love hit successive triples during the spurt and Rubio capped it with a jumper at 8:19.

Love spearheaded a 10-0 run later in the third with two more 3-pointers to help Minnesota to an 89-80 lead heading to the fourth.

The Timberwolves led 30-27 after the first, but San Antonio outscored the visitors 35-24 in the second to take a 62-54 lead into the break.
