SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Tony Parker scored 23 points and the San Antonio Spurs, backing up their NBA-best record against the defending champions, beat Kobe Bryant and the reeling Los Angeles Lakers 97-82 on Tuesday night.

DeJuan Blair had 17 points and 15 rebounds, leading an unlikely Spurs cast that handed the Lakers their third straight loss while Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili muddled through a dreadful game.

Bryant finished with 21 points on 8-of-27 shooting. He missed 13 in a row at one point, and might be fuming again after railing on his team following a Christmas Day loss to Miami.

The Spurs improved to 27-4, among the best starts in NBA history.

The Lakers dropped to 21-10, marking the first time since 2007 they’ve reached 10 losses this early.
