Tim Duncan hit 24 points and 17 rebounds, while Tony Parker scored 20 points to propel the San Antonio Spurs to their fifth straight victory on Monday, (90-85 over the Philadelphia 76ers).

Spurs let a 17-point first half lead go before an offensive barrage the fourth quarter sealed the win, (again without Manu Ginobili, who is out with a hamstring injury).

Brazilian Tiago Splitter had 10 points and 12 rebounds in 29:26 minutes on court for San Antonio.

Evan Turner led the Sixers with 18 points and 12 rebounds, even his efforts wasnt good enough and the loss is now the Sixers seventh in nine games.

Andrew Bynum, out all season with injured knees, said before the game he remained on target to return around the All-Star break.

The Sixers could use him. Without their best player, they've slumped to seven games under .500.

Without Ginobili for the fourth straight game, the Spurs got clutch baskets down the stretch to win their NBA-high 15th road game.
