MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Manu Ginobili scored a season-high 34 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 110-to-96 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. It's the first time since Tony Barone Sr. took over as head coach that the Grizzlies have been held under 100 points. Ginobili -- who averaged 25 and a half points in the previous two games -- was 10-of-15 from the field, including 6-of-8 from 3-point range. Robert Horry had 18 points to help San Antonio snap its first three-game losing streak of the season. Michael Finley added 12 points, and Tim Duncan and Bruce Bowen had 10 apiece. The Spurs played without guard Tony Parker.
He injured his right hip against Dallas on Friday night. Pau Gasol led Memphis with 24 points, and Mike Miller -- who left the game briefly in the third quarter because of a jammed right thumb -- finished with 14. Damon Stoudamire added 13 points, and Alexander Johnson had 10. San Antonio scored the first two baskets of the fourth period to build an 18-point lead, and Memphis never got the deficit under double digits as the Spurs won their sixth straight over the Grizzlies.
