SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Kawhi Leonard matched his career high with 26 points, Manu Ginobili had a season-high 26 and the San Antonio Spurs eased to a 112-92 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday after losing Tony Parker to injury.

Parker's status is unknown after he was forced to leave with back spasms early in the first quarter.

The All-Star point guard took a hard fall as he drove the lane, landing squarely on his back near the free throw line after being fouled by Memphis' Mike Conley with 7:38 left. Parker remained on the court for about a minute, but rose and continued playing before exiting with 2:41 remaining in the first.

Tim Duncan added 13 points for San Antonio (60-17), which bounced back after its franchise-record, 19-game winning streak was snapped Wednesday in Oklahoma City.
