NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Tony Parker scored 21 of his 32 points in the second half and also doled out nine assists, and the San Antonio Spurs overcame a 14-point deficit en route to a 102-95 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night.
Tim Duncan scored 16 of his 21 points in the second half, and Marco Belinelli added 13 against his former club.
Anthony Davis had 17 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks, Anthony Morrow added 20 points and Eric Gordon scored 19 points for the Pelicans, who appeared in line for their fifth win in six games when they led by 14 near the end of the third quarter.
The Spurs, however, had other plans. Parker strung together an array of dazzling driving layups through crowds of defenders, and San Antonio outscored New Orleans 38-19 in the final period.
