Recap: Orlando vs. San Antonio

Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Tim Duncan and Marco Belinelli led a balanced San Antonio attack with 19 points apiece in the Spurs' 109-91 rout of the Orlando Magic from Amway Center.

Duncan shot 8-of-13 from the floor and added a game-high nine rebounds, while Belinelli shot 4-of-4 from behind the arc off the bench.

Cory Joseph started in place of Tony Parker, who had the night off to rest a sore ankle, and added 13 points for the Spurs. San Antonio bounced back with a strong performance following its second loss of the season on Wednesday to Oklahoma City. Manu Ginobili chipped in 11 points and five assists.

"We don't depend on absolutely one player. If we were going to miss Tony for 20 games, that's another thing," said Ginobili. "But we can replace anybody for one or two games. We are deep. That's one of the strengths of this team."

Orlando was also without its starting point guard, as Jameer Nelson did not play with a sprained foot. Victor Oladipo played well in his absence with 15 points and three blocked shots, and Arron Afflalo led the Magic with 17 points in the setback.

Maurice Harkless' triple at the 6:52 mark of the second quarter made it 38-37 in favor of the Spurs, but Orlando totaled just eight more points the rest of the quarter. San Antonio used a 25-8 run to assume control leading into the break.

Belinelli's trey on a nifty feed from a slashing Duncan began an unprecedented string of 11 straight trips down the floor with points for the Spurs. Duncan came alive during the spurt, making 4-of-4 with a free throw before finally missing a short jumper seven seconds before halftime.

The duo combined for 20 in the second period and San Antonio led 63-45 at the break.

The Magic cut their deficit to 10 points on a pair of Nikola Vucevic free throws 6:10 into the third, but the Spurs ran off seven straight to regain the momentum.

Oladipo's 3 from Afflalo midway through the first quarter gave Orlando its largest lead at 22-16. The Spurs scored 13 of the final 15 points of the period, however, and led 29-24 after one.

"I wasn't really playing smart. Frustration got to me. I missed some shots and then I didn't get on the defensive end; [Duncan] scored on me. He's one of the best ever, but I got frustrated. I can't have that happen," said Vucevic.

Game Notes

San Antonio outscored Orlando 44-24 in the paint ... The Spurs outrebounded the Magic, 43-28 ... Vucevic had 12 points and seven rebounds.
