Orlando, Florida:

Tony Parker scored 25 points, including 16 in the fourth quarter and overtime, and San Antonio held on to beat Orlando 85-83 in overtime on Wednesday night.

Tim Duncan added 17 points and 10 rebounds as the Spurs also snapped a streak of 10 consecutive road losses overall, dating to last season.

The Magic were led by Dwight Howard with 24 points and 25 rebounds. Ryan Anderson added 17, but it wasn't enough for Orlando to overcome a dismal shooting night.

The loss snapped a five-game winning streak and three-game home win streak against San Antonio. It also was the Magic's only loss in their lone back-to-back-to-back of the season.

The Spurs are off until Friday when they host Sacramento. The Magic host the Los Angeles Lakers the same night.
