Recap: San Antonio vs. Phoenix

San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - The Phoenix Suns made just two field goals in overtime, but it was two more than the San Antonio Spurs.

And the Suns unfathomably snapped the Spurs' 18-game home winning streak.

Wesley Johnson hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer in regulation to send the game into overtime and Marcin Gortat's go-ahead tip-in with 1:07 left in the extra session helped the Suns down the Spurs, 105-101, on Wednesday.

The Spurs missed all 10 of their field-goal attempts in overtime.

San Antonio, which was an NBA best 22-2 at home coming in, last dropped a game at the AT&T Center on Nov. 19 against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Jermaine O'Neal added 22 points and 13 rebounds for Phoenix, which has won back-to-back overtime tilts.

The Suns went just 2-of-9 from the field in the extra period.

Tony Parker returned from a one-game absence due to a sore right triceps and tallied 22 points and eight assists for San Antonio, which capped a 7-2 road trip with a victory in Phoenix on Sunday.

The Suns trailed 97-92 with 49.9 seconds left in the fourth after Parker hit a jumper, but Marcus Morris nailed a 3-pointer at the other end before Tim Duncan knocked down a jumper to make it 99-95 with 11.9 ticks to go.

Goran Dragic hit a jumper to cut the margin to two and Manu Ginobili stepped to the foul line with a chance to seal the outcome with 3.7 second remaining. He made the first but missed the second. O'Neal secured the rebound on the lower left block and threw a perfect football pass to Johnson, who nailed a triple from the right wing at the horn.

"Great pass," Suns head coach Lindsey Hunter said of O'Neal's heave. "Wes (Johnson) was there to catch it and had enough composure to get it up and get behind the line. It was a great play."

The first points of overtime came when Parker split a pair of foul shots, but Gortat put the Suns in front with 1:07 to play. After Ginobili missed a trey at the other end, Johnson misfired on a jumper, but O'Neal was there to clean up the mess with 9.4 to go.

Danny Green was off the mark from beyond the arc with 6.1 left and P.J. Tucker split a pair from the line with 4.1 on the clock to seal it.

"It was just one of those games that was just not for us tonight," Parker said. "We have to give Phoenix a lot of credit, they played great. They stayed in the game and hit some big shots."

San Antonio led 27-25 after a quarter of play, 52-45 at the break and 77-67 going into the fourth.

Phoenix outscored the Spurs 33-23 in the final frame of regulation.
