SAN ANTONIO, April 12 (UPI) -- Tony Parker had 20 points and Michael Finley had 14 Friday in leading the San Antonio Spurs to an easy 95-74 decision over Seattle.

Seattle, which has lost three in a row and eight of nine, was led by Kevin Durant with 20 points.

The Spurs managed a routine victory despite hitting just four of 19 three-point attempts.
