GAME RECAP

David Robinson scored 22 points and the San Antonio Spurs held the Portland Trail Blazers to a season-low for points en route to an 85-69 rout.

The Spurs, who moved into a tie for first place with Utah in the Midwest Division, went on a 13-2 run in the first quarter, starting with Avery Johnson's basket and ending with two free throws by Jaren Jackson that opened an 18-6 lead with 3:23 left. Sean Elliott had five points during the spurt with a three-pointer and two free throws.

San Antonio opened the second quarter with an 8-2 spurt, capped by a basket by Cory Alexander, to take a 34-14 advantage with 9:15 left in the half. The Spurs were never seriously challenged the rest of the way.

San Antonio, which snapped a six-game losing streak against the Trail Blazers, held Portland to 33 percent shooting (25-for-76) while connecting on 47 percent (30-for-64) of their own field goal attempts. The Spurs' last victory over the Blazers had come on February 20th, 1996.

"It was a good win for us. We thought we should've taken care of business up there (on Sunday)," said Elliott. "The key to the game was rebounding. We didn't give them any second shots. If we shoot from the outside like we did tonight, we're a tough team to beat."

Rookie Tim Duncan pulled down 16 rebounds to help San Antonio gain a 47-37 edge on the boards. Jackson added 21 points for the Spurs, who avenged Sunday's 82-79 loss at Portland.

Robinson moved past Manute Bol into seventh place on the all-time blocked shots list with 2,087 after swatting away rookie Kelvin Cato's shot in the first half.

"I'm so preoccupied on making this team as good as they can be, it's nice when things come up like that record, but I remain focused on the team," said Robinson. "Tonight we got off to a good start. The key was maintaining offensive execution, moving the ball around and getting good shots. The effort was great and we maintained out energy level."

Gary Trent and Kenny Anderson each had 16 points for the Blazers, who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

"Defensively we started out too passive and were not aggressive. Then we compounded our misery by taking bad shots," said Portland coach Mike Dunleavy. "Their big guys moved the ball well and ran the floor, which allowed them to get some easy buckets."

San Antonio maintained its double-digit lead throughout the second half, and the closest that Portland came was 82-69, following a dunk by Jermaine O'Neal with 40 seconds remaining.

"They came out for revenge after we beat them over the weekend. Our offense just wasn't fresh in the beginning," said Anderson. "They wanted to play well at home, just like we played well at home. They played off the crowd and their big guys played very well."
