San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Tim Duncan's return to the lineup was
short-lived, but the San Antonio Spurs managed to record their 10th straight
victory with a 96-86 decision over the Washington Wizards on Saturday.
Duncan, who had missed the team's previous four games with a sore left knee,
suffered a sprained right ankle and a sprained left knee in the second
quarter. He was hurt when Washington forward Martell Webster rolled onto the
back of his knee as the two were battling for a rebound.
Tony Parker had a double-double with 19 points and 12 assists for the Spurs,
who will begin an 18-day, nine-game road trip on Wednesday. Danny Green and
Tiago Splitter donated 15 and 12 points, respectively, while Kawhi Leonard
tallied 10 points and 11 boards.
John Wall ended with 21 points and nine assists for the Wizards, who have lost
four straight. Webster had 14 points and Chris Singleton and Nene each added
11 points apiece.
