Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- One night after a scorching shooting performance, the San Antonio Spurs had a dismal offensive effort but were saved by the bench to post their ninth straight victory, 82-78 over the Golden State Warriors.

Malik Rose scored seven of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and fellow reserve Steve Kerr added a season-high 14, including two key free throws in the waning seconds, as the Spurs earned their sixth consecutive road win.

"I got out there and gave a little intensity, that's my job," Rose said. "We have such great starters, our practices are a bore. They (the starters) got off to a slow start tonight, and it just helped us (the bench)."

The Spurs connected on a season-best 61 percent from the field and notched their highest point total of the campaign in Tuesday's 121-109 triumph at Sacramento. Tonight, they shot only 30 percent (16-of-53) from the field through three quarters before hitting 10-of-16 over the final 12 minutes.

Tim Duncan had 17 points and a season-high 17 rebounds for San Antonio, which is in the midst of its longest winning streak in three years. He was 5-of-18 from the field and fellow frontcourt star David Robinson scored only three points on 1-of-8 shooting.

"How many games has he played in this league? He's entitled to one bad game once in a while," Duncan said of Robinson.

Rose shot 6-of-9 from the field and grabbed six rebounds, while Kerr was 3-of-4 from the floor and made all six of his free throws. The Spurs' bench shot 12-of-20 and the starters made only 14-of-49 from the field.

"It was nice to get the contribution (from the bench)," Kerr said. "We got off to a really rough start. Our starters were tired, they played a rough game last night."

Bimbo Coles scored 20 points but only two in the final period for the Warriors, who have dropped three in a row at home after winning seven straight at Oakland Arena.

A hook shot by Rose gave San Antonio a 65-62 lead with 7:19 to play, but Donyell Marshall answered with three straight free throws to tie the game. A pair of foul shots by Duncan put the Spurs back on top before John Starks buried a 3-pointer to give Golden State a 68-67 advantage.

Avery Johnson responded with a 16-footer that put San Antonio in front for good, and then fed Duncan for a jumper that made it 71-68 with 3:16 to go. Jason Caffey hit a hook to cut it to one and pulled down a rebound off a miss by Duncan, but his errant pass led to Rose's dunk.

"We just couldn't close it, just couldn't close it," Coles said. "At the end of the game, the opportunities were there. They made their shots, we didn't. That's what it's all about."

After misses by Terry Cummings and Marshall, Elliott sank a 17-footer that gave San Antonio a 75-70 edge with 1:40 left. The Warriors made one final charge, pulling within 78-76 on Marshall's 28-foot 3-pointer with 20 seconds to go.

Elliott answered with two foul shots and after Coles hit a driving layup, Kerr sank a pair of free throws with 9.4 remaining to help seal the victory. Marshall missed a pair of 3-pointers in the final moments.

Kerr, who has missed only one of his 21 free throws this season, buried both of his attempts from beyond the arc while the rest of the Spurs missed all five of their 3-pointers. They atoned for poor shooting from the floor by hitting 28-of-36 from the foul line. Golden State made just 9-of-14 free throws.

Starks scored 14 points, Caffey had 11 and 12 rebounds and Erick Dampier pulled down 11 boards for the Warriors, who owned an impressive 58-42 edge on the glass against the 7-footers -- Duncan and Robinson. But Golden State's downfall was its outside shooting, hitting just 3-of-15 3-pointers and finishing 37 percent (33-of-90) from the field.

The Warriors raced to a 12-2 lead on Coles' 17-footer. San Antonio trailed 16-4 midway through the period when coach Gregg Popovich went to the bench, replacing Duncan, Robinson and Johnson with Rose, Will Pedue and Lloyd Daniels. The reserves helped get the Spurs back in it, with Daniels feeding Rose for a dunk with 27 seconds left to make it 24-17.

"Our starters had a bit of a problem starting out the game," Popovich said. "Our bench was great tonight because Golden State played their (butts) off. From minute one to minute 48, they go after your butt. They deserve a lot of credit for it."

"They came out with a lot of energy. We came out kind of flat," Duncan added. "Coach made a great move, bringing in people from the bench."

A basket by Johnson and three free throws by Kerr cut it to 24-22 early in the second quarter. Kerr hit a jumper and 3-pointer to give the Spurs a 29-26 lead with 6:31 left before halftime. The game remained close the rest of the way, with Golden State taking a 56-54 lead into the final period.

"We just played our (butts) off and got beat," Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "We've got guys who are sick, guys who are banged up. You can't play much better than we did."
