NBA Scores: Spurs beat Thunder 86-84 at buzzer

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

In a rematch from the playoffs last season, the Spurs knocked off the Thunder 86-84 in Thursday's only NBA game.

Thursday was a light night on the NBA schedule with only one game. The Knicks and Nets were scheduled to open their season in Brooklyn, but that game was postponed following Hurricane Sandy. Instead, the only NBA action on Thursday was in San Antonio where the Spurs knocked off the Oklahoma City Thunder 86-84.

The two teams were evenly matched Thursday night, going back-and-forth all game. Tony Parker hit a three-point shot to tie the game with 28 seconds to play. Then after a Kawhi Leonard picked off a Russell Westbrook pass, Parker hit a 21-foot jump shot at the buzzer to give the Spurs the win.

Tim Duncan led the spurs with 20 points while Parker finished with 14 points and 11 assists. San Antonio was forced to play without Manu Ginobili who missed the game with a back injury. Kevin Durant scored a game-high 23 points to go along with 14 rebounds while Westbrook finished with 18 points.

Friday will be a busier day in the NBA with 12 games on the schedule.
