SPURS 117, SUNS 89

PHOENIX — Kawhi Leonard scored 21 points, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Phoenix Suns 117-89 in the NBA on Thursday night to stretch their winning streak to 12 games.

Leonard, who had three assists and three rebounds, shot 6-of-15 from the field, while going 8-of-8 from the free throw line and hit his lone 3-point attempt.

Boban Marjanovic added 17 points and 13 rebounds in a reserve role, Jonathon Simmons finished with 13 points and Ray McCallum chipped in with 11 for the Spurs (37-6) who played without starting point guard Tony Parker and forward Tim Duncan.

Parker missed his second successive game with right hip soreness, while Duncan was given the night off to rest by coach Greg Popovich, whose team had 66 bench points at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

“The bench guys got it done for us,” coach Popovich said. “The starters weren’t all that enthused.”

San Antonio moved to 13-6 on the road this season, while Phoenix fell to 9-13 at home.

Devin Booker led the Suns ((13-31) with 24 points and five assists, while Archie Goodwin added 20 points and T.J. Warren finished with 18 off the bench for Phoenix, which lost its sixth straight.
