SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker will play Friday night against the Phoenix Suns after missing the previous two games with a back injury.

San Antonio veterans Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will both sit out the second game of a back-to-back for rest.

Duncan had 20 points and 15 rebounds and Ginobili added 10 points and seven assists in the Spurs' 109-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday. Patty Mills had 26 points and six assists starting in place of Parker.

The victory pulled San Antonio (61-18) within a game of clinching the top seed in the Western Conference and moved Phoenix percentage points ahead of Dallas for seventh place.
