Tony Parker, returning after a six-game absence, had 22 points and seven assists Sunday night, leading a balanced San Antonio attack in the Spurs' 112-106 victory over the visiting Dallas Mavericks.
Tim Duncan finished with 17 points, Kawhi Leonard scored 16 and Boris Diaw had 13 points and 10 rebounds for San Antonio. Manu Ginobili had 15 points and seven assists as the Spurs extended their winning streak to three games.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points 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.
