SAN ANTONIO --
The Mavericks also went scoreless for 5 1/2 minutes during that stretch, their lone field goal coming as time expired.
Tony Parker had 21 points, and
Devin Harris scored 19 points for the Mavericks, who nearly pulled off a huge upset.
Duncan, wearing a heavy brace on his left knee, walked off the court gingerly with 3:24 remaining in the third quarter after banging knees with Ellis. He did not get up as he customarily does during a timeout to greet his teammates.
Duncan later left the court, followed closely by trainer Will Sevening and team doctor David Schmidt, returning a minute later limping slightly less, and he played big down the stretch.
