SAN ANTONIO (CP) — Unable to comfortably separate from the young Toronto Raptors, the San Antonio Spurs turned to a proven finishing formula – Tony Parker driving for layups when he wasn’t kicking the ball to open teammates on the perimeter.

Parker had 26 points and eight assists and San Antonio beat Toronto 112-99 Monday night.
