Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Different coach, same result.

David Robinson scored 28 points on 14-of-19 shooting and grabbed 14 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs spoiled Golden State general manager Garry St. Jean's debut as coach with a 105-83 victory over the Warriors.

Leading 76-67 after three quarters, the Spurs opened the final period with a 12-0 run, capped by a dunk from Robinson with 8:31 remaining. The Warriors never got closer than 15 points the rest of the way.

"That's the David that takes us to a different level," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "That is how he played last year down the stretch for a month and all the way through the playoffs. He makes us a special team when he does that."

St. Jean added coaching to his responsibilities after firing P.J. Carlesimo earlier today.

"I loved it and appreciated the effort they gave us," said St. Jean on his return to the sidelines. "It's about execution on both ends of the floor and getting some more people healthy. I know the outcome was pretty decisive but in my mind, there's some positive signs to build on."

John Starks scored 27 points and Antawn Jamison contributed 14 for Golden State, which suffered its fourth straight loss and sixth in its last seven games. At 6-22, the Warriors own the worst record in the Western Conference.

"The organization felt it wasn't working out, but as a player my job is to do whatever it takes to win basketball games, no matter who's coaching," Jamison said. "P.J. was a great friend and we gained some friendship. But you're going to have hard times no matter who's coaching. You're going to have your good and bad times too. We've just got to find ways to win."

Tim Duncan, who led the Spurs in scoring the previous 11 games, had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Terry Porter added 14 points off the bench for San Antonio.

The Spurs stopped a two-game losing streak and rebounded from a 99-93 defeat to the league-leading Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas night.

San Antonio led 54-40 at the half, but the Warriors moved within 72-67 on a dunk by Donyell Marshall with 2:05 left in the third quarter. The Spurs scored the final four points of the period on a driving layup by Mario Elie and two free throws by Porter with 49 seconds remaining.

The Spurs shot 52 percent (46-of-88) from the field to offset the team's poor free-throw shooting (9-of-19). The "Twin Towers" of Robinson and Duncan helped San Antonio outscore the Warriors, 56-36, in the paint.

"Tonight fortunately I got a chance to stay in the game a little bit more and get some more opportunities," Robinson said. "I haven't been doing a lot of shooting lately. Tim's been taking that burden upon himself and I just felt like I needed to help him a little bit. I talked to Popovich and he told me he was going to get me more involved in the offense and tonight I did."

Robinson scored 12 points in the first quarter as the Spurs grabbed a 26-24 lead. The Spurs moved out to a 42-32 lead in the second quarter on two free throws by Duncan with 4:28 to play and extended their lead to 54-38 as Elie completed a 7-0 run on a driving layup with 10 seconds left.

Duncan and Robinson combined to score half of San Antonio's 28 points in the second quarter as the Spurs built a 54-40 advantage at the intermission.
