SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Tim Duncan had 24 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs held off the Golden State Warriors 95-88 on Friday night to extend their home winning streak to 14 games.

Tony Parker added 25 points and eight assists for San Antonio (31-11), which is an NBA-best 18-2 at home. Tiago Splitter added 19 points and nine rebounds, and Danny Green scored 13.

David Lee had 22 points, Klay Thompson added 21 and Jarrett Jack 20 for Golden State (23-15).

The Spurs closed the game on a 9-4 run after Harrison Barnes' jumper pulled the Warriors to 86-84 with 5 minutes left.

Duncan had eight points in the final quarter, going 4 for 6 from the field. He also had 10 points and five rebounds in the opening period.

Golden State led for all but 34 seconds in the first half.

The teams combined to start the game 2 for 12 from the field. The Spurs' first basket came 3 minutes in on Duncan's 19-foot jumper.

Golden State closed the first quarter on a 13-4 run but Gary Neal threw in a 3 at the buzzer to pull the Spurs to 26-19. Carl Landry had six points during the run.

Landry continued his dominance in the second quarter, going 7 for 10 while scoring 15 points. He did not score in the second half.

The Spurs had an opportunity to take the first-half lead, but Green missed a hurried 3-pointer after Splitter almost dribbled the final 3 seconds off. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich stormed onto the court, yelling at Splitter and Parker.

The start of the second half was delayed 15 minutes while one rim was replaced after officials noticed it was bent.

The Spurs tied the game at 58 midway through the third quarter when Stephen Jackson, Parker and Duncan quickly rotated the ball across the court to find an open Green for a 3. Duncan hit a pair of free throws on the following possession to give the Spurs a 60-58, their first since early in the first quarter.

The Spurs went on an 18-11 run after Duncan's free throws to take their largest lead at 78-69 with 27.3 seconds left in the third.
