Parker, Spurs stave off Ellis, Warriors

"It's always good to get a win the day before Thanksgiving. Makes the meal taste a lot better."

Duncan and Parker returned to the San Antonio lineup in the fourth after the Warriors cut a 22-point lead to 12. Golden State closed the gap to 10 but got no closer the rest of the way.

Roger Mason Jr. scored 17 points, Richard Jefferson and George Hill added 12 apiece, and Antonio McDyess had 10 for the Spurs, who beat Golden State at home for the 23rd consecutive time.

The Warriors already had used more players by the 4:17 mark of the first quarter than they used Tuesday in Dallas, bringing in three substitutes at once after using just one the previous night.

Reserve Corey Maggette scored 14 points after missing the Dallas game. Anthony Randolph had 12 points and rookie Stephen Curry 11 for Golden State.

Golden State led by five with 3:05 left in the first half, but the Spurs' depth and balance began to show as halftime approached.

"We hope the worst is over," said Warriors assistant Keith Smart, who led an injury-riddled team for the second straight game in place of Don Nelson, who remained in California with pneumonia. "You play a high-energy game in Dallas, then you fly here to get yourself ready to go and give everything you can.

"They just didn't have enough."

Parker, who finished the half with 18 points and four assists, gave San Antonio the lead with a fast-break layup and a basket on a drive down the lane in the final minute. The Spurs were up 60-58 at the break.

NOTES: No timetable for Nelson's return has been announced. ... The Warriors' last win in San Antonio came on Feb. 14, 1997.
