Talking Duncan scores 23 to lead San Antonio over New York

Tim Duncan had 23 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists to lead San Antonio to a 92-80 victory over the New York Knicks in the Spurs' first game without the injured Tony Parker.

Parker will miss about a month due to a moderate left ankle sprain. The Spurs' other standout guard, Manu Ginobili, has not played this season and isn't scheduled to be back from left ankle surgery until December.

Even without the two stars, San Antonio had enough to beat New York.

Rookie George Hill started in place of Parker and scored a season-high 12 points.

The Spurs (2-4) held a 67-64 lead entering the fourth quarter before they opened the period with 11 straight points as the Knicks missed their first four shots and did not score for the first 5 minutes. Zach Randolph's basket closed the deficit to 78-66, but New York could get no closer than nine the rest of the way.

Jamal Crawford scored 28 points to lead New York, which had won three straight.

I think our role players really stepped and we played an excellent 2nd half on both sides of the ball. Good game for us, even when we are struggling.
