Tony Parker had 19 points and nine assists, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Golden State Warriors 111-94 on Wednesday night to set a franchise record for best start to a season.

DeJuan Blair added 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Spurs (18-3), who have won their last 25 games against the Warriors in San Antonio. It was Blair's third double-double of the season.

Reggie Williams made eight 3-pointers and finished with 31 points for Golden State (8-14), which has dropped five straight and 10 of 11. Monta Ellis added 19 points.

The Warriors also lost Stephen Curry in the second quarter to a sprained right ankle. The second-year guard was dribbling behind the 3-point line when he hunched over, called a timeout and fell to the ground in pain. He was helped off the court by teammates and did not return.

San Antonio shot 51 percent and put six players in double figures. George Hill scored 17, Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter each had 12 points and Richard Jefferson 10.

Tim Duncan, who had a triple-double in San Antonio's win at Golden State on Nov. 30, finished with eight points in just 17 minutes.

Parker's driving layup from the right side sparked a 16-0 run in the first quarter as the Spurs held the Warriors without a field goal for more than five minutes.

The Warriors rallied in the second quarter behind Dorell Wright and Reggie Williams. The duo each knocked down a 3-pointer and a jumper during a 10-0 rally that cut it to 46-43 with two minutes left in the half.

But San Antonio, in the middle of its longest homestand of the season, held Golden State to 42-percent shooting in the first half and led 57-47 at the break.
