OAKLAND -- Tony Parker will be 31 in a week. On Friday night against the Warriors, he looked 21.

The Spurs point guard had the freshest legs at Oracle Arena most of the night, scoring 25 of his 32 points in the first half to help give San Antonio a 102-92 victory and a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinal series.

Tim Duncan, 37, was pretty spry himself, contributing 23 points and 10 rebounds to disappoint a loud sellout crowd.

The Warriors, who appeared faster and more aggressive in two games at San Antonio, couldn't force their will on the Spurs this time. San Antonio controlled the tempo, and their two future Hall of Famers had their signatures all over this one.

Parker triggered the Spurs' Game 1 comeback, but only after Klay Thompson fouled out late. This time, he attacked from the start, scoring eight points in the first 41/2 minutes.

"It wasn't our offense, it was our defense," Warriors guard Klay Thompson said. "Personally, I didn't do my job against Tony Parker."

Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard said Parker was in charge from the start. "He came out aggressive, knocked down his first four shots, and was making passes," Leonard said. "He led the way tonight."

Said Parker: "When I made my first couple shots, I was able to go right and find my teammates. I thought our team was very focused, by far our best game of the series."

Parker was so efficient and so active that he forced Warriors coach Mark Jackson to rotate a series of defenders on him.

It didn't matter.

Parker shot 11 for 14 in the first half, prompting Phil Jackson to applaud his performance via Twitter: "Spurs TP is on fire. Great response to criticism. GSt needs to 2 time him on S/rolls this half. Make somebody else beat them."

"He was unbelievable, making a lot of tough shots and using the pick and roll to his get shot open," Spurs forward Tiago Splitter said. "When he's like that, he's unstoppable."

Parker was kicked in the shin late in the game and afterward sat in front of his locker, both feet submerged in a bucket of ice water, both knees wrapped in ice.

"I'll get treatment (Saturday) and see how it goes," Parker said. "I expect it to be a long series, and I expect Golden State to come back and play better Sunday."

When it wasn't Parker, it was Duncan, who made open elbow jump shots and scored inside.

In a nutshell, the Spurs played their game, got good shots and made them, converting 50.6 percent, including 58 percent in the first half.

Late in the third quarter, after Steph Curry tied the game at 65-all with a 3-pointer, 35-year-old Manu Ginobili came alive. Scoreless to that point, Ginobili scored eight points in a span of 21/2 minutes, and San Antonio stretched out to a 76-65 lead. The Spurs' three old men combined to 67 points, 20 rebounds and 12 assists.

In the meantime, Thompson struggled. He had trouble staying in front of Parker.
