Nowitzki tied it at 107 with 1:23 left in regulation, then both teams failed to score again, with Parker missing an open 21-footer just before time expired.
The Spurs had a great chance to close it out in the first overtime when Terry was called for a flagrant foul after taking Parker down hard from behind on a breakaway layup with 43 seconds left and San Antonio already up 115-113.
But Parker made only one of two free throws, then missed a jumper on the ensuing possession. Kidd tied it on a 3-pointer with 19 seconds left, then Ginobili missed a layup with 1.1 seconds to go. After a timeout, Nowitzki threw up an airball on a 28-foot fadeaway while covered by Duncan.
The season series between these teams is now 1-1, with the road team winning both. Dallas won in San Antonio in early November.
Notes: It was the most points of the season scored for both teams. ... San Antonio went over 100 points for the third straight game. However, the Spurs also allowed over 100 points for only the second time in 16 games. ... Bowen was called for two fouls practically at once: One that stopped the clock, then another before the ensuing inbounds pass. He then went to the bench amid the biggest cheers of the night, to that point. ... Kidd actually scored two more points. While going for a rebound, he tipped in what would've been a miss by Bonner.
