SAN ANTONIO — Tony Parker delivered another typical performance, which the San Antonio Spurs needed on a day when nothing went as expected.

Parker had 22 points and 10 assists in his return from a four-game absence, and San Antonio never trailed in a 108-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday, a day the Spurs lost two key players.

San Antonio (58-21) clinched at least the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

After the game, the Spurs were still dealing with the decision to waive forward Stephen Jackson on Friday afternoon.

Jackson's departure took the team by surprise, especially since the playoffs start in eight days.

San Antonio also lost reserve forward Boris Diaw, who will miss three to four weeks after having surgery Friday.

DeMarcus Cousins had 19 points and 12 rebounds, Jason Thompson added 18 points, Toney Douglas had 15 and Jimmer Fredette had 14 for Sacramento, which lost its sixth straight to San Antonio.
