HOUSTON (AP) — Tim Duncan had 29 points and blocked James Harden’s layup with 2.9 seconds left to give the San Antonio Sours their 10th straight victory, 104-103 over the Houston Rockets on Friday night.
San Antonio jumped into the third spot in the Western Conference and Houston dropped from third to sixth.
The Spurs had a four-point lead when Harden made a layup for his first points of the half with less than 90 seconds remaining.
Duncan missed a layup before Harden made a 3-pointer with 28.9 seconds left to get Houston to 104-103. Tony Parker turned it over to give Houston one last shot.
But Duncan blocked Harden’s shot and grabbed the rebound to secure the victory.
The close game ended a streak of nine straight wins by at least 12 points, which had tied an NBA record.
