Posted: Updated:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Tony Parker scored 12 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter and the San Antonio Spurs sent the sliding Phoenix Suns home winless on their four-game road swing with a 103-98 victory Sunday.

Parker punctuated his fourth 30-point game in his last seven outings with a win-cinching runner with 26.2 seconds left. The Suns dropped further back in the Western Conference playoff picture with about a month left in the regular season.

Tim Duncan scored 17 points and helped hold Shaquille O'Neal to 14, his lowest total in his past five games. Shaq had averaged nearly 30 in his previous four outings.

Roger Mason had 18 points for the Spurs and Michael Finley had 11, eight of which came in the fourth.
