SAN ANTONIO -- SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Just a week into a new season, the San Antonio Spurs were already drained mentally and physically by the second game of back-to-back. San Antonio was lethargic defensively and lacklustre offensively against the young and energetic Phoenix Suns. The player with the biggest cause for fatigue turned out to be the one who bolted to the rescue. Tony Parker scored 15 of San Antonios final 16 points and the Spurs withstood a hectic finish to beat the Phoenix Suns 99-96 on Wednesday night. Parker scored 20 overall, going 8 for 11 in the second half, and finished with six assists for San Antonio (4-1). "Tony is someone we depend on," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He plays a lot of minutes. We expect him to be able to give us that offence, distribute the ball and play good D night after night after night. Hes been doing it for a long time now." Parker did the same for France, spending the NBA off-season leading the countrys national team to its first Euroleague Championship. Despite having little time to recuperate after leading San Antonio to the brink of its fifth championship, the 31-year-old point guard still carried the Spurs to victory after propelling them to a 115-105 winand area poiny am rebiundes. Tuesday night in Denver. "Incredible," San Antuns members Manu Ginobili said. "We were struggling to score. We looked a little slow and tired and he must made every shot. He did an unbelievable job down the stretch." Danny Green added 19 points, Tim Duncan had 17 points and Boris Diaw 11 points for San Antonio. Markieff Morris tied a career high with 23 points and also had 11 rebounds for Phoenix (3-2). Morris twin brother, Marcus, added 11 points and Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee each had 15 points. Plumlees reverse layup gave Phoenix a 96-95 lead with 1 minute remaining. The Suns had an opportunity to extend the lead following a miss by Duncan, but Ginobili drew a charge on Gerald Green. "(The Spurs) know each other," Phoenix first-year coach Jeff Hornacek said. "They have been in these situations in the NBA finals. They know how to handle it. They know how to be tough and aggressive. When they make cuts, they make cuts. When they are doing that, you cannot float through things." Parker, who had a game-high 24 points against the Nuggets, followed with a short jumper to give San Antonio the lead for good with 31.9 seconds left. "It was just one of those games," Parker said. "It was weird. In the first half coach Pop was trying to rest everybody; back-to-back, and so we just got a weird rhythm. In the fourth quarter, we finally got it." Gerald Green missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have tied the game. Both teams went on runs during the first half, San Antonio and Phoenix exchanged leads seven times in the second half. San Antonios big men were overwhelmed by the athleticism of the Morris twins, especially Markieff, who set up a series of dunks and drives to the basket with his outside jumper. Morris was 11 for 13 from the field. "They created a lot of matchup problems," Parker said. "Both of the brothers (Marcus and Markieff Morris), theyre tough to guard and Bledsoe in the pick-and-roll, same thing - hes super fast. Hes like a pit bull. Theyre pretty good. A lot people, they really dont believe in Phoenix. I think theyre a pretty good team." Ginobili, who entered the game averaging 12.3 points, gave San Antonio a burst of energy upon entering as the games first sub. He had five points and two assists in 3 minutes, making his first 3-point attempt to put San Antonio up 23-14 with 3 minutes left in the first quarter. Ginobilli finished with nine points. "They had a good game," Ginobili said. "The back-to-back, we knew we werent going to be that sharp or energetic, but they made a lot shots. (Markieff) Morris was incredible that first half. At one point, we were up 10 and it looked like we were going to break the game, but we stopped moving the ball and they started making shots and the game changed once you give a young team confidence." NOTES: Markieff Morris matched the career high he set against New Orleans on Nov. 23, 2012. . Diaw started for Tiago Splitter, who started San Antonios first four games. ... With Popovich inches away screaming for a call, John Goble calmly took a step back after blowing his whistle, motioned for the Spurs coach to settle down and then called travelling on P.J.

The move is aimed at improving security during the month-long tournament, with French authorities expecting fewer people to gather outside official fan zones if outdoor screens are banned.France has been under a state of emergency since last Novembers terrorist attacks in Paris during which 130 people were killed across the city, including at a rock concert, on the terraces of bars and restaurants and outside the Stade de France, the stadium where the tournament will begin on Friday.Fan zones are typically in squares or parks near city centres, allowing supporters to watch a game on a big screen. Extra security measures, including reinforced video surveillance, have been added to secure the fan zones.Junior minister for sports Thierry Braillard said the official fan zones are the only outdoor public spaces where screens will be installed.We cant accept unorganised gatherings because police forces dont have the means to secure them, he said. And a live screening on a terrace means gathering around a screen.Bernard Marty, the head of Frances biggest hotel industry union (UMIH) in the area of Marseille - where England play Russia on Saturday - said he had received contradictory information from police.The government should coordinate better with its officials so we could figure out better what is going on, Marty said.Maybe they want to boost Marseilles economy in the fan zone only, at the expense of all other retail traders who made investments. A look at some of the heightened security measures in Paris for the start of Euro 2016 Asked if the move would spoil the popular party, Braillard said everything will be put in place to ensure fan zones will be lively places.ddddddddddddIts better to have just one very secured area than letting thousands of people without match tickets gather in disorganised fashion, Braillard said.Meanwhile, Sir Julian King, the British Ambassador to France, has told fans not to be worried about coming to the country, although they should remain conscious of the security situation.Sir Julian, who will attend the opening games of England, Northern Ireland and Wales, said: Its going to be a great football tournament. Weve got three teams and are expecting over half a million fans from the UK. It will be a great adventure.Dont believe everything you read about France. Its not as bad as you think. There are some problems but just take sensible precautions - arrive early for games and fan zones, carry your passport with you , be prepared for security checks.Dont be worried about coming to France but be conscious of security situation. There are people out there who dont like our way of life and want to disrupt tournament.The French are very experienced at dealing with security. We are confident that the French have tight security measures in place. Theres been co-operation at the highest levels.
