GAME RECAP

David Robinson scored 32 points and the San Antonio Spurs gave up just 11 points in the fourth quarter as they rallied for their third straight win, a 100-98 victory over the struggling Toronto Raptors.

Robinson had a crucial tip-in with 1:48 to go that gave the Spurs a 98-95 lead. He also anchored a defense that allowed the Raptors just four baskets on 23 shots (17 percent) in the final period. San Antonio made 7-of-14 shots in the fourth quarter.

"David's still the man and he showed it again tonight," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He's awesome."

Sean Elliott scored 17 points and rookie Tim Duncan added 15 for San Antonio, which overcame a 15-point second-quarter deficit and improved to 4-1 all-time against Toronto.

Doug Christie scored 26 points and Damon Stoudamire added 20 and 13 assists for the Raptors (1-5), whose only win came against winless Golden State. A potential game-winning three-pointer by Stoudamire rattled in and out at the buzzer.

Facing a pressure defense from the smaller Raptors for much of the game, the Spurs did not take the lead for good until Jaren Jackson made a layup for a 94-93 edge with 3:19 to play. Duncan scored 35 seconds later for a three-point edge.

Popeye Jones, who had 15 points and 12 rebounds, scored inside to make it 96-95 with 2:16 left, but Robinson tipped in a miss and no one scored for more than 90 seconds. Stoudamire missed a runner with 1:08 to go and Jones misfired on a three-pointer with 13 seconds remaining.

A free throw by Avery Johnson built the margin to 99-95 with 12 seconds left before Christie drilled a three-pointer with 1.7 seconds to go. Elliott was fouled and split a pair at the line before Stoudamire double-pumped from 25 feet and missed at the buzzer.

"Toronto played their (butt) off and we got lucky," Popovich said. "Free throws are going to up and bite us sometime soon. ... Our defense kept us in the game in the fourth."

"We've just got to finish games," Stoudamire said. "We can't allow teams to come back like that. We knew San Antonio was going to make a run. We just couldn't withstand it."

Malik Rose scored 12 points, Monty Williams added 11 and Johnson had 10 assists for the Spurs, who shot 63 percent (41-of-65) from the field and held a 42-34 rebounding advantage. Elliott was 4-of-4 from three-point range.

Spurs forward Chuck Person played for the first time since the 1996 playoffs, making two three-pointers and scoring eight points in 21 minutes off the bench. Person missed all of the 1996-97 season recuperating from back surgery.

"It felt good to be back," Person said. "I didn't get tired. I'm just so excited to be out there."

John Wallace scored 14 points off the bench and Marcus Camby had 11 for the Raptors, who shot under 39 percent (37-of-94) but forced 28 turnovers leading to 32 points. Christie was 3-of-3 on three-pointers.

"I'm really proud of my team," Raptors coach Darrell Walker said. "They did some nice things tonight, except get the W."

San Antonio, which came in allowing just 84.4 points per game, scored the first basket, but Toronto reeled off 10 straight points and took control. Christie scored 14 points and Stoudamire and Jones added eight apiece as the Raptors opened a 36-26 lead after one quarter.

"In the full-court we were fine, but in the halfcourt, we threw it all over the place," Popovich said.

"You have to get it up the floor," Robinson explained. "When we pushed it up to the basket and attacked, we had more success. They did a nice job of keeping us out of our offense."

Toronto led by as many as 15 points in the second quarter, but Robinson scored eight points and Rose six as the Spurs cut it to 58-55 at halftime. Christie scored nine in the third period as the Raptors rebuilt the lead to 87-81.

"We just tried to come out and play hard and give ourselves a chance to win," Christie said. "We try to learn from all our mistakes and down the stretch we made some mistakes. Tonight, we were able to play our game. We just now have to learn how to close it out."
