Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- Having lost four of their previous five games, the San Antonio Spurs looked every bit the defending NBA champions with an easy 111-93 victory over the Dallas Mavericks as Tim Duncan had 29 points and 12 rebounds.

Chucky Brown scored all 12 of his points in the third quarter, when the Spurs pulled away for their 12th win in 13 meetings with the Mavericks.

San Antonio seemed to respond to some criticism from coach Gregg Popovich after a stunning home loss to Washington on Saturday that snapped a 22-game regular-season winning streak at the Alamodome.

"We showed a little bit of hunger and really tried to execute at the defensive end," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "That's what we've been missing for a little while. We controlled the tempo real well because of our defense."

"You can talk till you're blue in the face and watch film until everyone falls asleep," he added. "But wins really get people going."

The Spurs held a 51-46 halftime lead before Brown connected on all six of his shots over the next 12 minutes to help his team to an 83-70 cushion entering the final period. Brown added emphasis to San Antonio's dominance during the quarter with a slam at the buzzer.

"I tried to take (Brown) out twice (in the third quarter)," Popovich joked. "Each time I tried to take him out, he'd score another bucket. Him and Tim were taking turns in that quarter, so we decided to leave him in the whole time."

Duncan scored nine points in the period to help the Spurs improve to 7-6 on the road. San Antonio was 16-9 away from home on their way to the title during the lockout-shortened season and lost just one road playoff game.

"We're on our way back to where we want to be," Duncan said. "We're moving the ball better, we're shooting the ball better. Things just happen at the right time. It helps our confidence, we're just trying to get our flow back. We lost it for a while there."

Coming off his second triple-double of the season, Michael Finley managed just 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting for Dallas, which slipped to 5-4 at Reunion Arena. The Mavericks have lost four of five overall.

"They're one of the top defensive teams in the league," Finley said. "It showed tonight. They strive on the defensive end. They're defense sometimes generates their offense. That was the situation tonight."

Duncan made 11-of-23 shots and 7-of-8 free throws with four assists and two steals in 40 minutes. His 12-point first quarter helped the Spurs stay within 25-24 against the game Mavericks.

Avery Johnson scored 16 points and David Robinson added 10 and nine rebounds for the Spurs, who shot 51 percent (45-of-89) and held a 51-38 advantage on the boards.

Cedric Ceballos scored 27 points on 10-of-18 shooting and 10 rebounds for Dallas, which connected on 41 percent (36-of-88) and yielded 20 points off turnovers.

"They are the world champs," Dallas coach Don Nelson said. "This will be one of those adjustment games that we will be going through. We have to fight out way through it."

Brown, who started at forward but did not take a shot during his seven minutes in the first half, was on fire in the third quarter. He capped an 8-0 run with a follow shot to give San Antonio a 59-48 lead with 8:04 remaining in the period.

Brown helped the the Spurs open a 13-point bulge with three jumpers, a driving layup and his quarter-ending dunk.

"I just got some good looks, got a couple of baskets in transition, got an easy layup on the baseline and was able to hit for the most part," Brown said. "It wasn't anything special. They left me open a little more in the first half. They were wide-open looks and everything was going good for me tonight."

Samaki Walker opened the fourth quarter with a layup and Duncan followed with a dunk to make it 87-70 with 11:15 to play.
