Boris Diaw had 14 points and Tiago Splitter added 11 for San Antonio (24-7).

DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points and 14 rebounds, Isaiah Thomas added 27 points and Rudy Gay had 24 for Sacramento (9-20).

Struggling mightily on defense for much of the second half, the Spurs turned to their Big Three to close out the upstart Kings.

Ginobili, Duncan and Parker scored San Antonio's final 21 points in a 23-8 run to close the game.

Ginobili had consecutive 3s to tie the game at 102 with 3 minutes remaining.

The Spurs switched Duncan to guard Cousins, and the move immediately paid off as the Kings center committed a backcourt violation while attempting to take an inbounds from Ben McLemore.

Duncan then hit a free throw to complete a three-point play after drawing Cousins' second foul on the ensuing possession.

Cousins then shot an airball while attempting several spins and duck-and-under moves against Duncan. Parker followed with a 3 to put San Antonio up 108-102 with less than a minute remaining.

NOTES: Kings F Carl Landry remains out with a torn left hip flexor muscle. Landry has not played this season. . The mascots for the Texas Longhorns and Oregon Ducks appeared in a skit during the first quarter to promote Monday's Valero Alamo Bowl at the Alamodome, former home to the Spurs. . San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich was teased about his wardrobe selection, wearing a black jacket with a white checkered pattern. A Spurs television analyst attempted to play tic-tac-toe when Popovich appeared on the local coverage.
