Memphis had won its previous 22 regular-season home games, but never led against a San Antonio team that shot 14 of 25 from 3-point range.
Dallas dropped to the bottom of that grouping of four after losing at home against Phoenix, while other key results saw LeBron James lead Cleveland to victory at Toronto, and Washington maintain its sole leadership of the Southeast Division by comfortably beating Denver.
The top four teams in the division are separated by just one game, with all have a winning percentage above .700.
Manu Ginobili scored 17 points, and Tim Duncan had a triple-double with 14 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists as the Spurs beat Memphis for the ninth-straight time.
Marc Gasol led Memphis with 28 points and 12 rebounds as the Grizzlies dropped into a tie with Houston for the Southwest lead.
Phoenix's Goran Dragic had 28 points and a season-high 13 assists to lead the Suns to a 118-106 win at Dallas, ending the Mavericks' run of five consecutive wins.
Markieff Morris scored 22 for the Suns, who ran out to an 18-point lead in the first quarter and held on after the hosts pulled within five in the fourth.
Monta Ellis scored 33 points for the Mavericks, who had no answer to a Phoenix team that shot 56 percent for the game and an impressive 70 percent in the first quarter en route to a 69 points in the first half.
Cleveland won its sixth straight, with LeBron James contributing 24 points and a season-best 13 assists to lead the Cavaliers to a 105-91 win at Toronto.
Kevin Love added 15 points and 13 rebounds for Cleveland, which moved within half a game of Central Division leader Chicago.
Amir Johnson scored a season-high 27 points for the Raptors, who at least maintained their six-game lead in the Atlantic Division.
Rasual Butler and Kevin Seraphin each had 16 for the Wizards, who had six players in double figures and posted their fourth-straight victory.Washington racked up its biggest score and biggest win for the year, defeating Denver 119-89, with Kris Humphries scoring 20 points.
Wilson Chandler's 20 points led the Nuggets, who had their equal lowest score of the season.
Atlanta's DeMarre Carroll scored 16 of his 18 points in the first half to set up the Hawks' 98-75 win at Brooklyn.
Paul Millsap had 17 points for the Hawks, who eased up after leading by 32 points, and notched a fifth straight victory.
Brook Lopez had 20 points for the Nets.
Milwaukee's Kendall Marshall came off the bench and scored a season-high 20 points, including three big 3-pointers in the fourth quarter which shored up a 109-85 win against Miami.
Khris Middleton had 14 points for the Bucks, who got 60 points from their bench players, as against 18 by Miami's reserves.
Dwyane Wade's 28 points led the Heat, which has lost three straight.
Houston escaped with a 114-112 win at Minnesota, with James Harden having 38 points before fouling out and Nick Johnson scoring the winner on a driving layup with 0.8 seconds to go.
Sacramento's Carl Landry made the game-winning basket with 0.8 seconds left to give the kings a 102-101 overtime win over Indiana, ending a four-game skid.
Orlando condemned Utah to its eighth-straight loss, beating the Jazz 98-93, with Tobias Harris scoring 22 points for the Magic.
Tyler Zeller's 24 points helped lift Boston to a 113-96 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday in a battle of storied NBA rivals fallen on hard times.
eller connected on 10 of 11 shots from the floor and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Celtics, who had 19 points from Jeff Green as they notched a second straight victory in the wake of a five-game skid.
Kobe Bryant ended with 22 points for the Lakers, who have dropped two straight.Jared Sullinger delivered 17 points and 13 rebounds, Avery Bradley chipped in 16 points and Rajon Rondo scored 12 points and handed out 16 assists.
The Lakers and Celtics have met 12 times in the NBA finals over the years, and Celtics coach Brad Stevens said their history made any game between them special.
But Boston and Los Angeles went into the contest with a combined 10 wins this season, and Bryant's breakfast with Rondo on Thursday excited as much comment as the game itself.
Bryant insisted it was just a social meeting of friends and colleagues, and not an attempt to try to talk up the Lakers to the 28-year-old Rondo, who will be a free agent next July.
Although Bryant has been vocal in his praise of Rondo, he said their conversation on Thursday was of the “basketball geek” variety, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The Celtics seized an early advantage, taking a 30-20 lead after one quarter.
Los Angeles pulled within three several times in the second period, but the Celtics responded each time and put the game away with a dominant third quarter, in which they out-scored the Lakers 33-22.
Los Angeles never got closer than nine in the fourth and while Bryant's points total led the Lakers, he needed 21 shot attempts, connecting on just nine of them.
Charlotte ended a 10-game losing slump by beating the equally hapless New York Knicks 103-102, with Kemba Walker driving for a winning layup as time expired.
Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook had 27 points in the Thunder's 103-91 win over Philadelphia.
