SAN ANTONIO, March 12 (UPI) -- Tony Parker celebrated his return to the San Antonio lineup with 31 points Monday and the Spurs dominated Washington 112-97.

The four-time all-star guard dished off seven assists as San Antonio notched its 12th straight win over the Wizards.

Tim Duncan passed Clyde Drexler to claim 25th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list, scoring 14 points to bring his career total to 22,207, while also hauling down nine rebounds.

Tiago Splitter added 17 points and seven rebounds off the bench for the Spurs.

JaVale McGee led Washington with 21 points and 15 rebounds. Jordan Crawford scored 19 points and Nick Young scored 18 for the Wizards.
