TORONTO (AP) – Tim Duncan scored 26 points and Tony Parker added 19 to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 103-94 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Brent Barry made five 3-pointers and finished with 16 points for the Spurs, who shot 50 percent in bouncing back from a loss to Cleveland on Friday.

Chris Bosh had 19 points and 17 rebounds for the Raptors, who dropped to 1-2 on the season.

San Antonio went on a decisive 8-0 run after Bosh’s layup cut the lead to five with 3:11 remaining in the game.

Duncan made two free throws, Parker sank a long jumper and Manu Ginobili added two layups to give the Spurs a 101-88 lead with 1:13 left.

Duncan had 16 points in the second half and Parker had 12, including 10 in the fourth quarter.

The Spurs played the first of back-to-back games after flying from San Antonio on Saturday. The Spurs play in New York on Monday night.

San Antonio made 18 of 34 free throws in Friday’s loss, but went 18-for-25 against Toronto.

Toronto’s Andrea Bargnani – the No. 1 pick in the draft – played 12 productive minutes, scoring eight points against San Antonio’s reserves.

Bush, who looked up to Duncan growing up, finished 8-for-18 from the field. The All-Star forwards guarded each other.
