=== San Antonio Spurs Team Report – November 27 ===

(Sports Network) – Manu Ginobili scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds
to lead San Antonio to a 109-98 win over Chicago at SBC Center on Wednesday.

Tim Duncan had 16 points and 10 boards, while Tony Parker added 15 points for
the Spurs, who have won four of their last five games.

San Antonio led by five at the intermission, but opened up a 12-point edge at
61-49 on Duncan’s basket midway through the third quarter. The margin grew as
high as 14 points later in the frame and the Spurs enjoyed a 75-63 lead after
three periods.

Chicago trailed 83-72 early in the fourth, but it then used an 8-0 run, capped
by Donyell Marshall’s three-pointer, and climbed within 83-80.

However, San Antonio would not allow the game to get any closer.

The Spurs then scored 16 of the next 20 points to grab a comfortable 99-84
advantage with just over three minutes left in the game and the Bulls never
threatened again.

The Spurs are off until Friday when they host the Los Angeles Lakers.
