Roundup: Tony Parker lifts Spurs over Thunder

Tony Parker sank a 21-foot jumper as time expired and the Spurs won a thrilling rematch of the Western Conference finals, beating the Oklahoma City Thunder, 86-84, Thursday night in San Antonio.

Parker scored the last of his 14 points while Serge Ibaka — the NBA’s leading shot-blocker last season — ran at him full steam. The All-Star guard calmly swished a long jumper from the left wing before screaming in excitement while his teammates mobbed him in front of the Thunder bench.

Kevin Durant led all scorers with 23 points and began his sixth NBA season by becoming the second-youngest player behind LeBron James to reach 10,000 career points.

Tim Duncan led the Spurs with 20 points and eight rebounds. Parker also had 11 assists and hit a 3-pointer with 28.4 seconds left that tied the game at 84 and set up his buzzer-beater on the next possession.

Durant also had 14 rebounds. Russell Westbrook scored 18 points but made a poor pass on the Thunder’s final possession that gave the ball back to the Spurs with 5.9 seconds left, giving Parker plenty of time to set and release his shot.

Thursday night’s game between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets that was postponed by Hurricane Sandy will be played on Monday, Nov. 26.

The teams were scheduled to play the first regular-season game at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg asked the NBA to postpone it with much of the city’s mass-transit system still not operating.

The NBA says the game will start at 7 p.m. EST and be televised by TNT.
