Tony Parker scored 29 points and the San Antonio Spurs pulled into a commanding 3-0 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series against Portland with a 118-103 victory over the Trail Blazers on Saturday night.

The Spurs led by as many as 23 points in the first half, building a big early lead just as they had in the first two games of the series in San Antonio. The teams meet again on Monday at the Moda Center.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Portland, which pulled within eight points in the third quarter but couldn't get any closer. The Blazers were hurt by 15 turnovers and only six points from their bench.

No NBA team has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game series.
