SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Tiago Splitter had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs snapped the Oklahoma City Thunder's five-game winning streak with a 105-93 victory on Monday night.
Kawhi Leonard scored 17 points, Danny Green had 16 and Tim Duncan finished with 13 as San Antonio (49-15) rebounded from its second-worst home loss ever to maintain the Western Conference's top record. Manu Ginobili had 12 points and Boris Diaw added 11 as the Spurs' reserves outscored their counterparts 34-16.
Kevin Durant had 26 points and Russell Westbrook added 25 for Oklahoma City (47-17), which lost its sixth straight in San Antonio. Serge Ibaka was the only other player in double figures, adding 13 points and 16 rebounds.
San Antonio's defense was the difference, turning an evenly matched battle into its third victory in four games without Tony Parker. The All-Star point guard is going to miss another three weeks with a sprained left ankle.
