             === Spurs take 11-game win streak into Sacramento ===
 
 (SportsNetwork.com) - The surging San Antonio Spurs take their season-high 11-
 game  winning streak  to California's  capital  city Friday  night, when  they
 invade Sacramento to take on the Kings.
 
 The  Spurs  made it 11 straight  wins with Wednesday's 125-109 pounding of the
 Los Angeles Lakers in the opener of a three-game road trip, as Tony Parker led
 a balanced effort with a game-high 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting.
 
 Kawhi  Leonard scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Danny Green netted 16
 points and Tim Duncan chipped in 12 and 16 rebounds.
 
 Manu  Ginobili posted  13 points  off the  bench for  the Spurs,  who made  53
 percent  of their shots and had a 52-46 advantage on the glass. The win lifted
 the  Spurs to an  NBA-best 25-8 on the road. They are 14-5 against the West as
 the guest.
 
 "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."
 
 San  Antonio  has not lost  since Feb.  21 in Phoenix  and will close the trip
 Saturday against Golden State.
 
 The  Spurs  are nearing  another playoff  berth and  sit 1  1/2 games ahead of
 Oklahoma City for the conference's top seed.
 
 Sacramento  will continue  its four-game  homestand and  opened the  stay with
 Tuesday's 117-111 overtime win versus Washington.
 
 Isaiah  Thomas recorded  his first  career  triple-double with  24 points,  11
 rebounds  and  10 assists, while DeMarcus  Cousins and Rudy Gay also scored 24
 points apiece for Sacramento. Cousins also grabbed 14 rebounds.
 
 "I  never thought I would be able to get a triple-double," said Thomas. "I was
 just  playing hard  and got lost in the  game just trying to make plays for my
 teammates."
 
 The Kings, who are 7-3 when Thomas, Cousins and Gay score 20 or more points in
 a  game,  made  46  percent  of  their shots  and  scored  23  points  off  15
 Washington  turnovers.  They made 20  miscues themselves for 20 Wizards points
 and  have  committed 16 or  more turnovers  in nine of  the last 10 games. The
 Kings are posting an average of 18.1 turnovers in the previous 10 games.
 
 Sacramento  still  has Milwaukee  and New York  to host and  is 14-19 at Sleep
 Train Arena this season. It has won two in a row as the host.
 
 San  Antonio has  beaten Sacramento twice already this season -- both times in
 the  Alamo City.  The Spurs  have won  eight straight  and 25  of the  last 27
 matchups with the Kings, and are unbeaten in the last 10 trips to Sacramento.
