(Saturday, November 21st)
Final Score: San Antonio 106, Washington 84
San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Tony Parker returned to the Spurs lineup and led the club with 17 points, eight assists and six rebounds, as San Antonio rolled to a 106-84 drubbing of Washington.
Tim Duncan finished with 16 points, nine rebounds and seven helpers for the Spurs, who snapped a three-game slide. Richard Jefferson checked in with 15 points, while Matt Bonner and Roger Mason chipped in 12 and 11, respectively, off the bench.
"I actually came out trying to shoot tonight, and I found out I couldn't make a shot," Duncan said. "I thought passing might work better, so that worked better for me."
Gilbert Arenas ended with a game-high 18 points for the Wizards, who have lost 10 straight at AT&T Center. Antawn Jamison logged 15 points and seven rebounds in the setback, Washington's second straight.
"We haven't been able to put everything together," said Wizards head coach Flip Saunders. "Players are playing tight, players are playing frustrated, you have players that aren't playing that feel that they should be playing...we're just in a bad situation right now."
Parker, who missed four of the previous five games with an ankle injury, hit a layup to start a 9-0 run that ended the first frame with San Antonio leading, 27-21.
