CLEVELAND — Danny Green scored 19 points against a Cleveland team that released him last season and Tony Parker added 19 and the San Antonio Spurs coasted to their eighth straight win, 125-90 over the Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Green played his rookie season for Cleveland, which cut him at the end of training camp in 2011. He's found a new home with the Spurs, who built a 22-point lead in the first half and rested Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili for most of the fourth quarter.

Rookie Kyrie Irving scored 13 points for the Cavs in his return after missing one game with a sprained right shoulder.

Cleveland has lost eight in a row and been outscored by 72 points in its past two home games. Antawn Jamison led the Cavs with 15 points.
