Updated: November 8, 2013

San Antonio, TX ( – Tony Parker scored the final seven
points for the Spurs as San Antonio narrowly got past the short-handed Golden
State Warriors, 76-74, on Friday.

Patty Mills’ triple with 8:23 in the fourth put San Antonio ahead 69-62, but
no Spur other than Parker scored the rest of the way. The veteran point guard
knocked down three jumpers over the next 5:09 but made just 1-of-4 from the
foul line late to give the Warriors a chance.

Klay Thompson hit a corner three and David Lee rolled to the basket for a
layup with 3:57 left to bring Golden State within two.

The lead stayed at two late when Tiago Splitter grabbed the offensive rebound
off Kawhi Leonard’s 3-point miss. Splitter got the ball to Parker, who was
fouled immediately, but he missed a pair at the line with 16.4 seconds

The final inbounds pass went to Andre Iguodala at the top of the key. Iguodala
penetrated and got off a leaner, but it rimmed out and the Spurs survived.

The Warriors were without star point guard Steph Curry, who missed the contest
with a bone bruise in his ankle.
