SAN ANTONIO – DeJuan Blair scored 16 points off the bench to pace eight players in double figures, and the San Antonio Spurs overcame the loss of Tony Parker to beat the Sacramento Kings 130-102 on Friday night.
The Spurs rebounded from their first home loss in 18 games two nights earlier against Phoenix, but it may have been a costly victory. Parker, the Spurs' leading scorer, went down with a left ankle sprain with 4:40 left in the third quarter after a drive to the basket and scooping bucket. Parker immediately fell to the ground grabbing his leg and was helped off the court and straight to the locker room. He did not return.
Parker finished with 13 points and seven assists.
