SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Tony Parker
hit 10-of-15 shots in just 29 minutes Wednesday while carrying San Antonio to a 112-90 whipping of Dallas.
The Spurs won their third in a row, taking advantage of a weary opponent that was playing for the third time in four nights.
San Antonio outscored the Mavericks by 13 in the third quarter to break things open. The Spurs played without Manu Ginobili, who is suffering from a hamstring strain, and Dallas was missing Shawn Marion, who injured a shoulder in Tuesday's victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.
Marco Belinelli scored 17 points off the bench for the Spurs and Tim Duncan had 16 points and 13 rebounds.
San Antonio limited Dirk Nowitzki to 3-of-14 from the field and he was held to eight points. Monta Ellis led the Mavericks with 21.
It was the Spurs' seventh straight win over Dallas.
