SAN ANTONIO — Tony Parker had 21 points and six assists, and the San Antonio Spurs stopped Oklahoma City’s four-game winning streak with a runaway 130-91 victory over the Thunder on Wednesday night.
Boris Diaw scored 19 points and Tim Duncan had 16 for San Antonio (44-26), which has won 11 of 13. Kawhi Leonard finished with 14 points in the Spurs’ highest scoring game of the season.
Thunder star Russell Westbrook was held to 16 points on 5-for-16 shooting. He left midway through the third quarter with the Spurs leading by 30.
Westbrook was averaging 32.7 points, 11.2 assists and 9.6 rebounds in his previous 13 games, but the Spurs sent numerous defenders at the MVP candidate to hold him in check.
Westbrook removed a mask he wears after surgery on a fractured cheekbone, rubbing the side of his face and flexing his jaw after taking a blow to the head in a collision with Manu Ginobili in the first quarter.
Westbrook later pushed Duncan’s hand aside in frustration when the Spurs forward attempted to catch the point guard as he sailed through the lane after being pushed from behind by Danny Green.
Westbrook and Parker pushed the ball on almost every possession early on, setting a torrid pace.
The Spurs scored 71 points in the first half, the most the Thunder have allowed in any half.
