Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- The San Antonio Spurs blew open the game behind their big men in the second and third quarters as Tim Duncan and David Robinson dominated the Denver Nuggets for the second time in 10 days to post a 112-82 victory.

Duncan scored eight of his 19 points in the second period, when San Antonio began to turn a tight game into a blowout. He buried a 16-footer to trigger a key 12-3 burst late in the quarter that gave the Spurs a 52-40 lead.

Robinson scored seven of his 17 points in the third, including a three-point play that capped a 12-4 spurt midway through the period and built a 20-point bulge. San Antonio led by at least 16 points the rest of the way.

"I made some shots today," Robinson said. "I got my 10 shots, but making seven makes you feel a whole lot better. And it wasn't like I had a lot of dunks. I had the same shots I've been missing lately. It feels better to put the ball in the hole."

Duncan and Robinson helped limit Denver to just 37.5 percent (33-of-88) from the floor. The frontcourt tandem combined to shoot 16-of-27 and San Antonio shot 59 percent (34-of-62) overall, including 13-of-19 in the second period.

Duncan collected five steals and three blocks, while Robinson contributed nine rebounds and four blocks. That duo combined for 39 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocked shots on March 13, when the Spurs held the Nuggets to the lowest point total in team history in a 92-61 romp.

"The first time we played them in Denver this season, I said this was our toughest matchup," said Nuggets guard Chauncey Billups. "If you beat Tim Duncan off the dribble, you have David Robinson in the paint waiting for you. There's no room down there. If our outside game is not on, it's going to be tough to beat them."

Antonio McDyess hit his first three shots and appeared on his way to another big night for Denver. He had 23 points and 15 rebounds in Sunday's triumph over Seattle and had averaged 26 points in two games against the Spurs.

But Robinson and Duncan put the clamps on McDyess after his hot start, holding him to 10 points on 5-of-14 shooting.

"The team did a good job on him. Antonio is a great talent," said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "If you are going to have any luck against McDyess, you have to do it as a team. One-on-one is not going to stop him, he's too good."

"(They) did a nice job on McDyess," said Spurs guard Antonio Daniels. "When he beat Tim, Dave was there. When he beat Dave, Tim was there. We did a good job."

The Spurs have won 11 of their last 12 games.

The Nuggets, who managed only two points off nine turnovers by the Spurs, remain the league's only winless road team. They fell to 0-13 this season and have dropped 20 in a row outside of Colorado since March 17, 1998.

Nick Van Exel scored 18 points to pace the Nuggets, who have lost nine in a row to the Spurs and have dropped five straight at San Antonio since November 3, 1996. These teams meet again on Thursday in Denver.

"It seemed like we were just urgent to throw up any shot. On the other hand, they shot very well against us tonight," said Nuggets coach Mike D'Antoni. "There's not a whole lot of positives to take out of this one tonight. Fortunately, we get one more chance at home Thursday night, so we have every reason to put forth our best effort."

"I'm gonna pray a lot. They are going to be pretty angry," Popovich said. "They are a talented bunch and they are going to come after us."

Jaren Jackson scored 13 points, Antonio Daniels added 12, Malik Rose chipped in 11 and all were part of a Spurs' bench that cleaned up in the fourth quarter and finished with 53 points.

Eric Williams and Johnny Taylor added 14 points apiece and McDyess contributed 12 rebounds for Denver, which made just 3-of-16 3-pointers.

McDyess and Billups each had six points in the first period and Denver was within 27-26. The second quarter began with Jackson and Duncan hitting jumpers and Daniels dunking as the Spurs took control.

"We didn't push the ball in the second half like we did in the first," Van Exel said. "We need to keep pushing it because in the half-court, this team is awesome."
