Tim Duncan had 19 points and 15 rebounds as San Antonio rallied from 19 points down in the third quarter to beat Houston 92-84 to clinch their fifth straight win in the NBA season on Tuesday.

Manu Ginobili scored 13 of his 19 points in the second half as the Spurs beat the Rockets for the seventh straight time.

Francisco Elson scored 12 and Robert Horry added 10 for San Antonio, which has won its first four road games for the first time in franchise history.

Tracy McGrady scored 26 for the Rockets, but he had only five in the second half. Yao Ming, who had topped 30 points in his last two games, scored 20 and was just 7-for-21 from the field.

In Miami, Carmelo Anthony scored 33 points and the Denver Nuggets twice converted four-point plays to beat the Miami Heat 112-105.

Defending NBA champion Miami fell to 3-4 with its second consecutive loss, both at home.

Dallas won its third straight following an 0-4 start. Two of those early losses were at home and the Mavs came out intent on avoiding a rare three-game home losing streak.

In Salt Lake City, Carlos Boozer had 16 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists, and Utah got off to its first 7-1 start since the lockout season of 1999 after the 112-90 crush over Clippers.
