The top-seeded San Antonio Spurs have pushed the Los Angeles Clippers to the brink of elimination from the NBA basketball playoffs with a come-from-behind 96-86 win in game three.

Trailing by 24 points early in the second quarter, the Spurs seized control through All-Stars Tony Parker and Tim Duncan to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference semi-final series.

Guard Parker recorded 23 points and 10 assists while towering forward Duncan weighed in with 19 points and 13 rebounds as San Antonio extended their unbeaten run to 17 games, including seven in the playoffs.
