Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- The San Antonio Spurs are starting to look like a contender again, while the Orlando Magic are starting to look like a pretender.

David Robinson made two free throws -- his only points of the second half -- in the final 18 seconds and the San Antonio Spurs held the Orlando Magic scoreless for nearly the last 5 1/2 minutes in an 81-79 victory.

Isaac Austin hit a 13-foot jumper with 5:24 remaining to give the Magic a 79-76 lead but they would not score again. Orlando missed its last seven shots, two free throws and committed a shot-clock violation down the stretch.

Tim Duncan converted a three-point play with 4:47 remaining to bring the Spurs even. But they also went cold from the field as Robinson's free throws were the only points the rest of the way.

Robinson made 1-of-2 free throws with 18 seconds to play after being fouled by Austin, putting the Spurs ahead for good.

"In the last five minutes they got calls and we didn't," Austin said. "I didn't foul him but there's nothing you can do about it except keep playing. You don't make the calls. The team that eventually scored was going to win the game and that's what happened."

After a timeout, Orlando's Nick Anderson missed a jumper and Robinson grabbed the rebound and was fouled. He again hit 1-of-2 from the line to make it 81-79 with 6.9 seconds left.

Rookie Michael Doleac rebounded Robinson's miss and dished to Anderson, who missed a desperation 30-footer as time expired.

"It was a great win, obviously for all the reasons you already know," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "Orlando is a heck of a team and it was a great battle. Each team made their runs and each team looked poor. It was a great defensive, rebounding, physical contest."

Robinson finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds and Duncan had 15 and 11 to lead the Spurs, who have won a season-high five straight games since falling two games under .500 on February 28.

"In the second half we got away from what we did in the first half," Robinson said. "We had such a nice flow in the first half. But we were slow to respond in the third quarter. We made a nice push in the last 30-40 seconds of the third quarter and that got us back on track."

Penny Hardaway had 22 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for Orlando, which lost consecutive games for the first time this season and fell to 4-5 on the road. The Magic boast a 10-1 mark at home.

"We had our opportunities to score buckets tonight and we just didn't capitalize on those opportunities," Hardaway said. "We had our chances and then they got a break late in the game. David's call was definitely a break."

Robinson hit 7-of-11 shots from the floor and scored 17 points in the first half, helping the Spurs build a 49-38 advantage. But Austin, who finished with 14 points, scored six of the Magic's first nine points in the third quarter as they closed to 49-47.

Hardaway hit two free throws, capping a 9-4 burst that gave the Magic their first lead of the second half at 66-64 with 44 seconds left in the period. The Spurs scored the final four points of the quarter to take a two-point lead. Neither team led by more than four points in the final 12 minutes.

San Antonio shot 51 percent (36-of-70) while holding the Magic to 43 percent (32-of-75) from the floor.

Guard Avery Johnson had a strong game for San Antonio, finishing with 16 points on 8-of-15 shooting. He also handed out eight assists.
