PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Manu Ginobili's two free throws with 12.9 seconds left Saturday boosted the San Antonio Spurs to a 112-109 win over Portland.

Ginobili's clutch foul shots capped a comeback that saw the Spurs erase a 14-point deficit in the third quarter and go on to snap a seven-game losing streak in Portland that began in 2007-08.

Gary Neal -- subbing for Tony Parker (flu) -- played a big role down the stretch, draining 15 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter as San Antonio improved to 6-1 to start the season.

Tim Duncan provided 22 points and nine boards for the Spurs. Ginobili finished with 17 points.

The Trail Blazers, meanwhile, dropped a third straight despite a career-high 33 points from Nicolas Batum.

LaMarcus Aldridge notched 29 points for Portland.
