              === Spurs continue to roll with win over Lakers ===
 
 Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tony Parker netted 25 points while Kawhi
 Leonard  and  Tim Duncan  each posted  double-doubles to  lead the San Antonio
 Spurs past the Los Angeles Lakers, 125-109, on Wednesday.
 
 The  Spurs  put the Lakers away  in the fourth  quarter en route to their 11th
 straight  win,  as Leonard finished with  22 points and 10 rebounds and Duncan
 added 12 and 16 in the victory.
 
 Danny  Green and  Manu Ginobili each made three of San Antonio's 12 3-pointers
 and totaled 16 and 13 points, respectively.
 
 "We're  moving the  ball and shooting at a high percentage. We're getting open
 looks,"   Green   said.  "We're  making   strides  towards  playing  our  best
 basketball."
 
 Xavier Henry scored most of his 24 points in the first half, Pau Gasol chipped
 in  with 22  points and 10 rebounds and  the Lakers fell for the sixth time in
 their last seven games.
 
 Los  Angeles suffered  a 34-point  loss to  the Spurs  last Friday,  and while
 Wednesday's  final score  appeared to  be  lopsided, the  Lakers stayed  close
 through three quarters in front of the home fans.
 
 "Other  than  the last  six minutes  we played  well. We  don't have enough to
 compete  for 48  minutes against  a team  like this,"  Lakers head  coach Mike
 D'Antoni said.
 
 The  Spurs led by  11 in the first quarter, but Henry sparked LA's turnaround,
 first hitting a layup that cut the Lakers' deficit to 35-29 at the end of one,
 then  scoring the  first four points during  an 8-0 run that gave them a 42-40
 lead early in the second.
 
 Even  though Henry had  19 points by the break, the Lakers still trailed 58-57
 at halftime and went into the fourth down by five, 92-87.
 
 It  was  still a five-point  game before San  Antonio's 11-5 run stretched the
 difference  back to double digits, 108-97, on Duncan's mid-range jumper at the
 midway point.
 
 Marco  Belinelli  answered a Kent Bazemore  3-pointer with one of his own, and
 the Spurs cruised over the final five minutes.
