Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan scored 26 points and Avery Jonson matched a season high with 20 as the San Antonio Spurs avenged their worst loss of the season with a 94-77 victory over the Phoenix Suns in the second game of a home-and-home series.

"Tonight the defense was consistent both halves," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "We stayed in front of them, contested shots and cut off their penetration. None of the above happened the last time we played them. That's what we need to do to win."

The Suns, who snapped the Spurs' six-game winning streak with a 110-84 rout in Phoenix on Saturday, watched helplessly as San Antonio took control of the game in the second quarter.

Chris Morris hit a pair of free throws to pull the Suns within 29-26 with 8:33 left in the period, but Antonio Daniels came off the bench to score seven points during a 20-3 run as the Spurs pulled away for good, opening a 49-29 bulge with 3:16 left.

"We were disappointed in our performance in Phoenix," Duncan said. "We came out tonight real aggressive and more focused. We put it all together offensively and defensively. Avery Johnson had a great game for us."

San Antonio center David Robinson scored 12 points on 6-of-12 shooting and grabbed 13 rebounds. He bounced back from one of his poorest efforts of the season Saturday, managing just four points on 1-of-9 shooting in 24 lackluster minutes.

"David and Tim are obviously a big part of what we do at both ends of the court," added Popovich. "They are our anchors. They both did a great job."

Cliff Robinson scored 25 points and Jason Kidd added 22, nine rebounds and nine assists for Phoenix, which is just one-half game ahead of Sacramento for eighth place in the Western Conference.

"I didn't sleep much the last 36 hours," said Johnson. "Jason is a terrific player and I was disappointed in my own performance in Phoenix. There is more to playing a good game than assists and points. I got my hands on a lot of balls and tied him up a couple of times. Jason had a lot of points but he could have had more."

The Spurs held a 43-38 advantage on the boards and dominated play on the interior as the Suns were without leading rebounder Tom Gugliotta and 7-2 center Luc Longley.

Gugliotta, who also leads the club in scoring, has missed the last six games with a knee sprain. Longley also is sidelined with a spained knee and has missed a pair of games.

The Suns managed to close within 70-59 entering the fourth quarter, but Mario Elie made a crucial steal, which he followed with a three-point play off a dunk to thwart the rally with 11:19 to play.

"At one point we had momentum and then Mario Elie had a steal and a dunk," Phoenix coach Danny Ainge said. "That completely changed the momentum around."

Veteran pivotman Joe Kleine started in place of Longley but managed just one point and three rebounds in 28 minutes. Rookie Pat Garrity, who scored a season-high 25 points on Saturday, was held to seven.

Sean Elliott scored 11 points for the Spurs, who shot 53 percent (39-of-74) and outsscored the Suns 44-32 in the paint.

Phoenix shot 35 percent (29-of-82) and scored 33 points off 20 San Antonio turnovers. The Suns were 5-of-17 from 3-point range.

"Shooting well makes defending their transition game a lot easier," Ainge added. "Shooting 35 percent makes it a lot tougher to stop them on the break."

After Morris' free throws cut the deficit to three early in the second quarter, Robinson made a driving layup, Daniels a running jumper and Steve Kerr drained a 3-pointer to stretch the margin to 36-26 with 7:15 remaining.

Daniels kept the run going with another layup before Duncan sank a 17-footer to open a 14-point lead.

Kidd and Daniels exchanged 3-pointers and Kerr hit a 20-footer before Johnson capped the spurt with a pair of layups, the second making it 49-29 with 3:16 left.

"(Johnson) made it a point to go to the basket tonight," Kidd said. "He's going to have those kind of nights. If you leave him (open) he'll make you pay. He was a big key in the first half."
