SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tony Parker scored 21 points and Tim Duncan overcame early foul trouble to add 18 and 11 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs rallied for their third straight win, 92-81 over the Washington Wizards.
Parker converted a pair of free throws with 44 seconds left to cap a game-closing 9-0 run and help secure San Antonio's fifth consecutive win against Washington.
Duncan picked up his third foul with 4:24 to go in the first quarter. The reigning NBA MVP returned with 74 seconds left in the half, but the Wizards took a 45-35 lead into the locker room.
"We did a great job tonight just sticking with it and bringing great energy in the second half," Duncan said. "I think picking up two quick fouls, where I was out of position, definitely slowed things down."
David Robinson sparked the Spurs' comeback, collecting five of his 11 points during a 10-2 run that opened the second half and got San Antonio within 47-45.
Stephen Jackson chipped in 17 points for the Spurs, who improved to 12-3 at home in their first season at the SBC Center.
Jerry Stackhouse scored 19 points and Michael Jordan and Christian Laettner chipped in 16 apiece for the Wizards, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.
"Bruce (Bowen) did a phenomenal job defending Michael," Robinson said. "I think everyone did a great job of keeping us in the game in the first half."
"Duncan and Robinson take away the ability to get to the rim," Wizards coach Doug Collins said.
The Spurs outscored the Wizards in the paint, 40-24.
Washington had a three-point lead midway through the second quarter before embarking on an 11-0 run. Bryon Russell sparked it with a 3-pointer and Jordan capped it, hitting a turnaround jumper with just under four minutes left in the half that made it 41-27.
"In the third quarter, we didn't come out with the same intensity as the first half," Jordan said. "They made their shots, we didn't. It was frustrating."
The Spurs were trailing by 12 just 69 seconds into the third when Robinson nailed a 16-foot jumper and started San Antonio's charge.
Parker's 13-footer and a 3-pointer by Bowen came before Robinson's alley-oop dunk with 8:33 left in the quarter pulled the Spurs within 47-45.
"I think we did a much better job (in the second half) of staying focused and not committing as many turnovers as we did in the early part of the game," Spurs coach Gregg Poppovich said.
Washington's Brendan Haywood dunked with 4 1/2 minutes left in the contest to give the Wizards a 77-75 advantage. But Parker's 3-pointer later put the Spurs ahead for good 21 seconds later.
