Tim Duncan scored 20 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 113-91 victory Saturday over Panathinaikos of Greece.
The reigning NBA champion Spurs never trailed against the Euroleague champions and were up by as many as 29 in the exhibition game played in San Antonio.
Duncan played just over 21 minutes and sat out the fourth quarter, as did the Spurs' other starters.
Manu Ginobili added 15 points for San Antonio, including a highlight-worthy dunk early in the third quarter and two 3-pointers. Brent Barry added 12 points for the Spurs and was 3-of-6 from behind the arc in the team's second preseason contest.
"It was a good chance to practice a lot of things," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Especially against a well-coached team and a successful team. We're happy to have that opportunity."
Sarunas Jasikevicius and Mike Batiste led Panathinaikos, which has won four Euroleague titles the past eight years, with 18 points apiece. Sani Becirovic had 13 points and Milos Vujanic added 12. The team lost to the Houston Rockets 107-70 in an exhibition game on Thursday.
The Spurs dropped their first preseason game 88-67 to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.
The Spurs' Tony Parker sat out for the second game in a row to rest his body after a long summer playing for the French national team.
Heading into the second quarter the score was 32-25, but the Spurs took over from there, extending their lead to as many as 19 points with 3:19 left in the half on Barry's third 3-pointer of the night.
Jasikevicius led Panathinaikos with 15 points at the half, but the Spurs were ahead 60-44.
Ginobili's flying dunk with 10:40 left in the third put the Spurs up 64-46, and the lead grew to 89-60 with 1:12 left after a three-point play by Barry.
Ginobili, who logged 22 minutes on the floor, more than any of his teammates, said it felt good to be on the court.
"It's always fun to play, especially against a good team, or a team that creates tough matchups," Ginobili said. "So it was a good test for us and it was fun, as long as I played. Then when I sit it was not as fun."
Duncan finished 6-of-9 from the field and made eight of 10 free throws.
HORNETS 111, SUNS 106: At Phoenix, Bobby Jackson and Tyson Chandler each scored 19 points to lead New Orleans. Morris Peterson made a 3-pointer with 3:23 left to give the Hornets (2-1) the lead for good at 105-102.
BOBCATS 92, HEAT 76: At Greensboro, N.C., Gerald Wallace scored 18 points to lead four players in double figures. Matt Carroll added 17 points, Raymond Felton scored 13, Adam Morrison had 10 points and Emeka Okafor pulled down nine rebounds for the Bobcats (1-2), who gave Sam Vincent his first win as an NBA head coach.
WIZARDS 90, MAVERICKS 86: At Fairfax, Va., Andray Blatche had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Washington won in a foul-filled preseason game. Dallas, which played without three of its four top scorers from last season reigning MVP Dirk Nowitzki, point guard Jason Terry and swingman Jerry Stackhouse hardly resembled a team that won an NBA-best 67 games in the regular season. Nowitzki, Terry and Stackhouse were rested by coach Avery Johnson.
PACERS 97, SUPERSONICS 87: At Indianapolis, Travis Diener scored 15 points and Jermaine O'Neal added 14 to lead Indiana. Mike Dunleavy had 14 points, Danny Granger scored 12 and Troy Murphy grabbed 12 rebounds for the Pacers, who improved to 2-0 this preseason under new coach Jim O'Brien. Seattle rookie Kevin Durant, the second overall pick in the NBA draft, had 21 points on 6-of-13 shooting from the field.
