Monday, March 22, 2010 - 10:08pm

Even without Tony Parker, the San Antonio Spurs are making up
ground in the playoff race.

George Hill stepped into Parker's starring role and scored a
career-high 27 points, and the Spurs overcame Kevin Durant's 45 to
beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 99-96 on Monday night and forge a
tie between the teams for sixth place in the Western Conference
standings.
