Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs bounced back from a disappointing performance to notch a decisive 99-77 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

Duncan collected 21 points and 15 rebounds and led six players that scored in double figures for the Spurs, who defeated the Mavericks for the ninth straight time.

The effort came one day after Duncan scored just five points on 2-of-7 shooting and committed five turnovers in 38 minutes during a surprising 93-91 home loss to the Toronto Raptors.

"After the loss last night, we had to win big," Duncan said. "We needed to come in with a fast tempo game. ... The back-to-back games didn't really affect us."

Duncan, who admitted to "making bad decisions and playing horribly" Friday, had only one turnover and shot 9-of-11 from the field to help the Spurs post their 13th win in 15 games.

"Tim competed well tonight at both ends of the floor," said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "He was real physical and played demonstratively."

Michael Finley scored 17 points and Shawn Bradley added 15 and 12 boards as Dallas suffered its seventh consecutive loss on the road and dropped its fifth straight in the Alamodome.

"We figured if anybody was going to be able to sneak up on this team it would be us, but somebody (Toronto) beat us to it," said Mavericks coach Don Nelson. "They were mad as hornets tonight."

Mavs forward Samaki Walker scored 16 points off the bench and played significant minutes in place of Gary Trent, who was not with the team due to a stomach virus.

Duncan was pivotal in a key 8-2 spurt to close the third period. With the Spurs clinging to a 61-57 edge with 3:12 left, Antonio Daniels sank two free throws to trigger the run. Duncan then hit a layup and buried a short baseline jumper before putting in another lay-in to make it 69-59 with 35 seconds to go.

To help keep the lead at double digits by the end of the third, Duncan blocked a layup attempt by Erick Strickland and grabbed the rebound. Duncan recorded his 20th double-double of the season.

The bench was critical in allowing San Antonio to put away the game early in the final period. The margin was 73-63 when reserve Steve Kerr drilled a 19-footer to open a 10-2 spurt.

A rebound by Duncan allowed the Spurs to run, leading to Will Perdue's layup off a feed from Antonio Daniels. Perdue added a follow slam and Daniels converted a driving layup before finding Mario Elie for a lay-in that made it 83-65 with 7:11 to play.

"It's easy for me to show confidence in myself because my teammates have confidence in me," Daniels said. "I just want to provide a spark whether that's providing energy, offense, defense or just pushing the ball. ... I want to get the Alamodome going crazy. I like to get people excited."

The Spurs were firmly in control the rest of the way, winning their eighth straight divisional game despite playing for the third time in three nights.

Elie scored 14 points while Kerr and Daniels came off the bench for 12 and 11 points, respectively. Perdue had 11 rebounds in a reserve role.

"The last week and a half, our bench has been huge," said Spurs center David Robinson, who scored 11 points. "They really change the momentum for us. Tonight, they came in and pushed our lead even farther. Jaren (Jackson), Will, Steve and Antonio are doing great. Our bench is our strength right now."

The Spurs atoned for a 15-of-26 effort from the foul line by hitting 50 percent (40-of-80) from the field. They also committed just six turnovers.

"Tonight was different from last night in that we only had (six) turnovers," Popovich added. "We were awful from the free throw line, but that didn't affect us. The turnovers were the difference."

Strickland and Hubert Davis chipped in 11 points apiece for Dallas, which shot 39.5 percent (32-of-81) from the floor.

Starter Sean Elliott scored all 11 of his points in the first half, helping San Antonio to a 44-41 lead at the break. The Spurs improved to 18-3 this season when leading at halftime.

"They didn't look like they played three games back-to-back. Their fatigue didn't show," Walker said. "They responded well in the fourth. Instead of being happy with a 10-point lead, they wanted 20."
