GAME RECAP

Tim Duncan continued his outstanding play even as David Robinson returned to the lineup, finishing with 27 points, 17 rebounds and eight blocked shots to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 100-88 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Robinson started and had 17 points and eight rebounds in 24 minutes, returning to action after missing six games with an inflamed right knee. Duncan led San Antonio to a 4-2 record in his absence, averaging 25.3 points and 13.0 boards during that stretch.

"I wanted to make sure I was healthy," Robinson said. "They were a little concerned about it, but I'm the only one who can tell them how I feel and I feel great. Right now, I just want to get out there, run, jump and contribute to the team."

"It was a bit of an adjustment early tonight," Duncan said of Robinson's return. "It was like getting used to a new player all over again, but once we got out there for a bit, we were fine."

Avery Johnson scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half and handed out 10 assists as the Spurs earned their 12th straight home win over the 76ers. Jaren Jackson scored all 10 of his points in the fourth quarter for San Antonio, which has not lost at home to Philadelphia since January 6th, 1986.

Derrick Coleman scored a season-high 35 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and Allen Iverson added 19 points for the Sixers. But each missed a key shot with less than a minute to play and was benched in the final 30 seconds.

The 76ers led through much of the first half after dominating the opening quarter, during which they made 14-of-24 shots (58 percent) to take a 35-26 lead. But in the final three periods, Philadelphia shot just 20-for-70 (29 percent).

"We played a great second half after playing a poor first half rebound and defense wise," Spurs coach Gregg Poppovich said. "In the second half, we picked it up and our aggressiveness improved. ... David and Tim were great in the second half defensively, blocked shots, rebounds. Avery was awesome on Iverson and Jaren was big for us."

Scott Williams, who was 0-for-5 from the field, opened the fourth quarter with a pair of free throws to give the Sixers a 72-69 edge. But San Antonio took the lead for good, 77-76, on a layup by Johnson with 6:20 to play. That basket came in the midst of a 10-2 spurt, which was capped three minutes later by Jackson's jumper for an 85-78 lead.

Coleman put home a driving slam over Robinson and was fouled with less than two minutes to go. He hit the free throw to pull Philadelphia within 87-83, but Jackson answered with a jumper from the top of the key.

Coleman countered by draining a three-pointer and, following a Spurs' turnover, had a chance to trim the deficit to one but missed an off-balance jumper. Jackson made him pay with another jumper, this time from the right wing, putting San Antonio ahead by a 91-86 margin.

Coleman was then fouled on a follow attempt and hit the free throws to bring Philadelphia back within three with 49 seconds remaining, but the Sixers failed to score the rest of the way.

Duncan sank a free throw and, after Iverson missed a driving attempt, Robinson grabbed the rebound and hit one of two from the line. Iverson was furious with referee Jack Nies that no foul was called on his drive to the basket, eventually leading to his benching.

Coleman missed an open three-pointer and Duncan pulled down that board, before Jackson was fouled and hit two free throws for a 95-88 edge. Iverson continued to argue and was whistled for a technical foul as he was sent to the bench along with Coleman.

"This season's been tough, our roster is a little short on experience," Coleman said. "Every night we come out and compete but we tend to make mistakes down the stretch. That's been our downfall this season. We just need some experience."

Vinny Del Negro, who had 11 points and six assists, hit that free throw and the Spurs went on for their third straight win. Robinson had four of a season-high 16 blocks for San Antonio, which shot 53 percent (40-of-76) from the floor.

"We gave ourselves a chance, it was a three-point game in the end," 76ers coach Larry Brown said. "Duncan was just tremendous. Anytime the other team has 16 blocks, it's going to be tough. We hung in there."

Johnson, who hit 9-of-11 shots, scored 14 points in the third quarter to help the Spurs get back in it. Trailing 65-56 midway through the period, San Antonio reeled off a 12-1 run to go in front. Johnson sank two free throws to cap that spurt with 1:23 left for a 68-66 lead.

"They were shooting the lights out in the first half, especially Derrick Coleman and Iverson," Johnson said. "We wanted to put more pressure on them, close the passing lanes, overplay and allow David and Tim to do their work inside. It was just a great defensive effort in the second half."

But Joe Smith answered with a basket and, after Robinson hit a free throw, Iverson had a layup with eight-tenths of a second left for a 70-69 edge heading into the final 12 minutes.

Smith and Theo Ratliff scored 12 points apiece for the 76ers, who committed only five turnovers -- just one more than the team-record low -- but was outscored in the paint, 56-32. Philadelphia has won just twice in the last 15 meetings of this series.

The game featured five former number-one draft picks, including the last three in Duncan, Iverson and Smith, respectively. Coleman was the top overall pick in 1990 and Robinson was the first overall selection in 1987.
