The Spurs, who have won 14 of 15, had stars Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili on the floor together for the first time since Jan. 13.
Kyrie Irving, who was held to a season-low six points, missed a desperation runner from the top of the key as time expired.
Tony Parker led the Spurs with 24 points while Gary Neal scored 15.
Waiters scored 20 points to lead Cleveland, which has dropped three straight after winning a season-high three in a row…
Irving, who rolled his left ankle Monday against Minnesota, was 2 of 15 from the field with seven assists.
Tyler Zeller, who was scoreless in 25 minutes Monday, had 16 points, including 12 in the first half, for Cleveland.
