The San Antonio Spurs stayed on top of the Western Conference standings by cruising to a 109-91 road victory over the Orlando Magic.
The Spurs had their 11-game winning streak snapped earlier this week by the Oklahoma City Thunder, but they got back on track Friday night at the Amway Center despite playing without star point guard Tony Parker, who was out with an ankle injury.
Veteran power forward Tim Duncan and reserve guard Marco Belinelli led San Antonio in scoring with 19 points each, while Duncan also pulled down nine rebounds.
The Spurs were a well-oiled machine even without Parker running the show, shooting 55 percent from the field and 47 percent from 3-point range.
San Antonio led by 15 at halftime thanks in large part to Duncan, who scored 17 points and grabbed seven rebounds in the first two quarters before playing sparingly in the second half.
Argentine guard Manu Ginobili was a key contributor off the bench for the Spurs, scoring 11 points in just 20 minutes of action, while Brazilian center Tiago Splitter added eight points in 22 minutes.
Arron Afflalo and rookie guard Victor Oladipo notched 17 points and 15 points, respectively, for Orlando in a losing effort.
The Spurs improved to 14-2 overall and 7-2 on the road and now hold a one-game lead in the Western Conference standings over the Portland Trail Blazers, who did not play Friday night.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are currently two games behind the Spurs in the West after edging the Golden State Warriors 113-112 in overtime on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Russell Westbrook.
The Magic fell to 6-10. EFE
