Tim Duncan had 30 points and 12 rebounds, Kawhi Leonard added 24 points and 13 boards, and the Spurs defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, 119-113, Saturday night at San Antonio.

Manu Ginobili added 14 points and 10 assists, Nando De Colo had 11 points and Tiago Splitter had 10 for San Antonio.


Wayne Ellington had 21 points and fellow reserve Marreese Speights added 19 for Cleveland. Shaun Livingston had 16 points, and Alonzo Gee and Dion Waiters added 15 apiece.

Neither offense was slowed by the loss of its starting All-Star point guards. The Spurs’ Tony Parker is expected to miss another two weeks with a Grade 2 left ankle sprain, and Cleveland will be without Kyrie Irving (shoulder) for another three weeks.
