San Antonio, Texas:

The San Antonio Spurs routed Los Angeles 121-97 in the NBA on Friday, with the Lakers receiving no boost from the return of Kobe Bryant from injury.

Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili all scored at least 20 points for the Spurs, who stayed top of the Western Conference with their sixth straight victory.

Bryant had missed the previous seven games with a bruised left shin, and the Lakers went 5-2 without the NBA's scoring leader. Los Angeles missed a chance to clinch home court advantage in the first round of playoffs.

San Antonio has given Los Angeles its two worst losses of the season, the worst on Friday and 112-91 on Tuesday.
