SAN ANTONIO — With Tim Duncan sidelined for the second straight game, Tony Parker scored 39 points and the Spurs beat the Portland Trail Blazers for an 11th consecutive time in San Antonio, 99-84, on Wednesday.

Parker carried the Spurs again without Duncan, who is day-to-day with a right leg injury. Between Parker's 37 points Tuesday and Wednesday's encore, the point guard combined for 76 points in back-to-back games without Duncan or Manu Ginobili healthy.

Channing Frye scored 15 for Portland, whose losing string in San Antonio dates to 2002. The Trail Blazers also dropped their fifth straight road game.

"Tony Parker was a super stud again, and generated the offense again," Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich said.
