Tony Parker went off in the first-half, scoring 22 of his 32 points.
The Knicks played without two key defenders, Tyson Chandler (wrist) and Jared Jeffries, allowing San Anthonio to dominate the paint and score 60 points from within the key.
Daniel Green and Tim Duncan had 17 apiece for the Spurs (26-12).
Carmelo Anthony rebounded from Tuesday’s awful shooting performance with a team-high 27 on Wednesday.
Jeremy Lin had 20 points with J.R. Smith adding 18.
The Knicks (18-21) take a three-game losing streak into Milwaukee on Friday.
