DALLAS, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Tony Parker returned from having three stitches taken above his left eye Friday to score 23 points and boost San Antonio past Dallas 113-107.
Parker took an elbow to the face during the first half as he drove for the basket and had to leave the court for medical attention. He came back to make 9-of-16 shots. Duncan did not make the trip to Dallas due to a sore left knee and Popovich is recovering from an illness.
Rodrigue Beaubois came off the bench to deliver 19 points for the Mavericks, who suffered their second loss in seven games.
