Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- David Robinson broke out of his offensive slumber by scoring eight of his season-high 29 points in a key third-quarter stretch as the San Antonio Spurs rolled to a 99-81 victory over the suddenly reeling Seattle Supersonics.

Robinson had not scored more than 22 points this year and averaged just 13.5 in his previous four games. But he made 10-of-14 shots from the field and grabbed 17 rebounds. Tim Duncan added 18 points and 13 boards for San Antonio, which had dropped three of its last four games.

"I've been running and jumping a lot better lately," Robinson said. "My activity level has been better. When people set standards high, you have a lot to live up to. I guess it is good when people expect a lot of you. I've been trying to make things happen, trying to help the team any way I can."

"Dave played great," Duncan added. "He took the ball to the basket and drew some fouls. He was playing with those young legs. Overall, he did a great job."

The importance of getting Robinson on track was a sentiment echoed by more than just the Spurs frontcourt.

"Wow, that was the best game he's had in a long time," said guard Avery Johnson. "We just kept encouraging him and tried to keep him going because he'll be the one to lead us to a championship."

"David was fantastic tonight, he anchored our defense. He rebounded and got us going," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "When David plays like that, it's huge for us."

Gary Payton scored 20 points and Olden Polynice and Detlef Schrempf added 10 apiece for the Sonics, who have dropped four of five after opening the season with six straight wins.

"I had heard he hadn't been playing so well this season but he sure looked like the David of old tonight," said Sonics coach Paul Westphal.

San Antonio led 47-41 to open the second half and Robinson started the scoring with two free throws. He added a 15-footer 95 seconds into the third quarter for a 10-point bulge.

Jaren Jackson drained consecutive long jumpers for a 55-41 lead with 7:59 remaining. But Payton scored four straight points to draw Seattle within 10.

Robinson responded with an 11-footer and two free throws around two from the line by teammate Mario Elie. Duncan dunked to cap the run and give the Spurs a 63-45 edge with 5:08 left.

Playing for the fourth time in five nights, Seattle never got closer than eight the rest of the way. Obviously fatigued, Seattle shot just 34 percent from the field (26-of-76) and missed 18 of 45 free throw attempts.

"I'm at a loss for how bad we were shooting tonight," Westphal added. "We missed some wide-open shots, a lot of free throws ... everything. Why is a mystery to me. We played hard, we just couldn't deal with Robinson tonight."

After scoring at least 89 points in each of their first five games, the Sonics have averaged just under 84 in the last four.

"We didn't make shots," concluded Vin Baker, who was just 1-of-7 from the floor and held to two points in 27 minutes. "If we make a few more shots and some more free throws, then we have a chance."

Baker was 0-for-4 from the free throw line, falling to 4-of-33 this season.
