Tim Duncan scored 17 points, Kawhi Leonard added 16 and Boris Diaw had 13 points and 10 rebounds for San Antonio. Manu Ginobili had 15 points and seven assists and Tiago Splitter had 11 points as the Spurs extended their winning streak to three games.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points, Vince Carter added 21 and Monta Ellis had 17 for the Mavericks, who have lost eight straight to the Spurs.

Parker looked refreshed after not playing since Feb. 10 for what was officially listed as "rest," but unofficially was due to a series of lower body maladies.

BULLS 109, KNICKS 90

CHICAGO • Joakim Noah had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assists for his fifth career triple-double, leading streaking Chicago over New York.

Chicago had seven players score in double figures in its ninth win in the last 10 games. The Bulls also reached 100 points for the fourth consecutive game for the first time since Oct. 30-Nov. 5, 2010.

D.J. Augustin had 21 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as Chicago (33-26) improved to 21-8 since Jan. 1 and a season-high seven games above .500 overall. Jimmy Butler scored 19 points and Carlos Boozer had 14.

While the Bulls are galloping through the weak Eastern Conference, the Knicks are floundering.

RAPTORS 104, WARRIORS 98

TORONTO • DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points, Kyle Lowry had 13 and Toronto beat Golden State for its first victory in eight tries against Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

Greivis Vasquez and Patrick Patterson each added 12 points and Jonas Valanciuas had 10 for the Raptors, who had lost 11 of their previous 13 meetings with the Warriors.

Toronto’s only previous victory over Golden State since Curry was drafted was an 83-75 home win on March 4, 2012, a victory that came while the guard was sidelined by a strained tendon in his foot.

Curry scored 34 points and David Lee had 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Warriors lost for just the second time in their past seven games.

THUNDER 116, BOBCATS 99

OKLAHOMA CITY • Kevin Durant scored 28 points and Russell Westbrook had 26 to lead Oklahoma City past Charlotte.

Durant made just 8 of 24 field goals, but sank all 12 of his free throws.
