LOS ANGELES, March 3 (UPI) -- Tony Parker had 26 points and 10 assists Monday night and the San Antonio Spurs rang up their 11th straight win over the Los Angeles Clippers, 106-78.

Tim Duncan finished with 18 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in his second game back following a three-game absence due to a right quad injury, and the Spurs won for the first time in three games. Michael Finley had 14 points -- 12 of them on 3-pointers -- and Matt Bonner also scored 14 for San Antonio.

Al Thornton led the Clippers with 14 points and Baron Davis scored 10 -- but between them they were just 9-of-33 from the field. Fred Jones also scored 14 for LA, which has lost six of its last eight games.

The Spurs led 26-21 after one quarter and used a 9-0 run in the second period to jump out to a 49-36 lead at intermission. San Antonio went on an 11-0 run in the third quarter, sparked by a Finley 3-pointer, to go up 74-48, and then extended the lead to 80-59 at the end of three.
