Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Needing outside shooting to complement one of the best inside games, that is exactly what the San Antonio Spurs got from Steve Kerr and Mario Elie in a season-opening 101-83 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

With the Spurs leading 65-53 with 4:20 left in the third quarter, Kerr and Elie each sank a pair of 3-pointers that triggered a 17-4 burst to close the period, giving San Antonio an 82-57 bulge heading into the final quarter.

To bolster a weak perimeter game, the Spurs acquired Kerr, the best 3-point shooter in NBA history, from the three-time defending world champion Chicago Bulls. Elie, another clutch outside shooter, was signed as a free agent away from the Houston Rockets.

Elie finished with 14 points while reigning Rookie of the Year Tim Duncan had 19 points and 17 rebounds to lead the Spurs, who posted their fifth straight win over the Kings.

Rookie point guard Jason Williams led Sacramento with 21 points. Chris Webber, acquired from the Washington Wizards, added 20 and 12 rebounds. Coach Rick Adelman lost in his Kings debut.

"Our shots really didn't fall, but we showed character. Character is something you build when you lose," Webber said. "We exhibited character just by playing hard."

Kerr drained a 3-pointer to push the lead to 72-55 and, after a three-point play by Duncan, Elie nailed hit a shot from beyond the arc that brought the Alamondome crowd of 19,002 to their feet and gave the Spurs a 78-55 bulge.

Elie made 6-of-8 shots, including 2-of-3 from 3-point range in 20 minutes of the bench. Kerr also played 20 minutes off the bench and was 3-of-5 from the floor and 1-of-2 from beyond the arc.

The combination of Elie and Kerr led a bench that outscored the starters, 53-48.

"It's a great way to start the season. A lot of guys got to touch the ball and score," Kerr said. "Our starters got a lot of rest. If that continues it will help out tomorrow and for the rest of the season."

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich talked about the team's newest acquisitions.

"It felt good seeing the guys knock down the shots. That's what they were brought in here to do," he said. "Mario, Jerome (Kersey), and Steve also provide leadership which helps make the team better, not just on the court."

The Spurs led by as many 29 points in the final quarter at 86-57 after Duncan converted a layup with 10:27 left. Sacramento drew within 96-83 on rookie Jerome James' layup with 75 seconds left but could get no closer.

Duncan, who finished fourth in the NBA in shooting percentage last season, made 9-of-13 shots. As a team, San Antonio shot 45 percent (38-of-85).

"Great win for the team's confidence," Duncan said. "Our bench came in and did a lot of things beyond what we expected them to do. We're quickly getting a lot more comfortable with our philosophy."

David Robinson also had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds and Sean Elliott, coming of an injury-plagued season, had 14 points for the Spurs.

After the Kings drew within 47-45 early in the third quarter, Elliott hit a jumper and Avery Johnson made a layup off a steal to ignite a run of 12 straight points that gave San Antonio a 59-45 advantage.

In his debut, Williams was 9-of-19 from the floor and had five steals for the Kings, who shot 37 percent (35-of-96) and were outrebounded, 55-47.

"It was a pretty physical game out there, but it was nothing I didn't expect," Williams said. "It's just that you hate to lose."

Vlade Divac, signed as a free agent from Charlotte, struggled in his Sacramento debut. He finished with four points and eight rebounds in 29 minutes.
