Parker finished with 20 points in what was San Antonio's ninth straight victory. The Spurs kept pace with Indiana for the NBA's best record at 11-1.

Tiago Splitter had 17 points and seven rebounds for the Spurs and Manu Ginobili added 15 points.

Memphis, which had won four straight, was paced by Mike Conley's 28 points. Marc Gasol left the game in the second period with an apparent injury to his left knee and he did not return.
