SAN ANTONIO -- Tony Parker had 25 points and Tim Duncan had 15 points and 10 rebounds and the San Antonio Spurs beat the New Orleans Hornets 99-94 on Friday night.

Back home after playing six of its previous seven games on the road, San Antonio (19-9) got 13 points from Manu Ginobili and 12 from Boris Diaw.

Rookie Anthony Davis had 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead New Orleans (5-21), which suffered its 10th straight loss. Greivis Vasquez added 14 points, Ryan Anderson 12 and Brian Roberts 11.

New Orleans outscored San Antonio 33-27 in the final quarter, including a jumper by Roger Mason that pulled the Hornets within 84-80 midway through the quarter. The Spurs responded with a layup by Parker and a jumper by Nando De Colo to regain control of the game.

The late rally was in contrast to a sloppy start. The teams were tied 4-4 after the opening 4 minutes, going a combined 4 for 15 from the field with three turnovers.

Davis and Duncan both seemed to enjoy their second meeting of the season. Duncan spun and dunked on Davis with 7 minutes left in the first half as the Hornets rookie attempted to crowd the veteran All-Star on the low block.

With 5 minutes left in the game, Davis attempted to shoot after a whistle had stopped play, but Duncan started grabbing the rookie's shirt and held his arms down in jest as both smiled.

NOTES: The last time San Antonio had its entire roster available was Nov. 15, when the Spurs lost 104-100 at home to the New York Knicks. . San Antonio has played 17 road games, the most of any team in the NBA this season. . Hornets guard Eric Gordon (right knee) and post Jason Smith (shoulder sprain) both missed Friday's game.
