LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Tony Parker's 24 points Friday helped San Antonio overcome a slow start and forge a 91-85 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Manu Ginobili contributed 20 points, and Kawhi Leonard (15 points, 11 rebounds) and Boris Diaw (14 points) also came up with strong performances for the Spurs, who were without center Tim Duncan (chest contusion). Tiago Splitter, who started in place of Duncan, finished with nine points and 14 boards.

Los Angeles got 20 points and 11 rebounds from Paul Gasol. Jodie Meeks added 14 points off the bench.

San Antonio shot just 25 percent (7-for-28) in the first quarter and trailed by 15 early in the second period before going on a 15-2 run that made it 35-33 with 5 minutes left in the first half.

The Spurs took a 60-55 lead late in the third after an 8-3 spurt.
