Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- After blowing a 22-point lead in a buzzer-beating loss in their last game, the San Antonio Spurs were determined to make someone pay. Enter the Los Angeles Clippers.

Tim Duncan scored 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Spurs rebounded from a tough loss with a 103-78 blowout of the woeful Clippers. San Antonio was coming off a 97-96 loss at Dallas on Tuesday.

Duncan hit 12-of-20 shots and added three blocks in a dominating performance. The superstar forward scored 11 points in the opening quarter, when San Antonio erased an early seven-point deficit to take a 23-21 lead.

The Clippers closed within 54-50 early in the third quarter on a basket by Michael Olowokandi, but Duncan scored 12 points to highlight a 22-7 run that gave the Spurs a 76-57 lead with 3:44 left.

The defending champion Spurs entered the game only 5-5 over their last 10 games, with turnovers being the main culprit. But San Antonio made a conscious effort to take better care of the ball and coughed it up only seven times.

"It was a good effort, especially in back-to-back games and coming off a tough loss," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "When you look at our games, turnovers are, without exception, our nemesis. When the defense plays good and we take care of the ball, we win."

Clippers leading scorer Maurice Taylor missed the game with a sprained left ankle. Derek Anderson had 17 points and six assists for Los Angeles, which has lost 10 straight to San Antonio.

"He had a sprain, the first ankle sprain he's ever really had," said Clippers coach Jim Todd, regarding Taylor's injury. "He's getting treatment today and tomorrow. Hopefully, he's going to be OK when we get home."

Rookie Lamar Odom, who missed the last game with a strained right calf, scored 14 points and showed no signs of discomfort but the Clippers lost their fifth straight game. They are 5-37 in their last 42 contests.

"They are just a better basketball team than we are right now, it's as simple as that," Odom said. "In order for us to beat them, we would have to play a nearly perfect game and they would have to have an off night. But we are always going to come out and play hard. We have no reason to be embarrassed."

"We knew they were going to come out pumped up and full of energy after the game they had last night," Todd said. "Every game is important for their positioning heading into the postseason."

Duncan watched from the sidelines for most of the fourth quarter as the the Spurs went to their bench. Olowokandi brought the Clippers within 85-71 with 7:44 to play but San Antonio put away the game with a 16-2 run, opening their largest lead at 101-73 in the final two minutes.

Spurs forward Sean Elliott, continuing his courageous comeback from kidney transplant surgery, had six points in 20 minutes, both season highs.

Samaki Walker matched his season high with 18 points and added 12 rebounds. Antonio Daniels scored 14 points and David Robinson added 10 for San Antonio, which shot 50 percent (40-of-80) and held a 48-41 rebounding edge.

"It's important that our bench plays well," Walker said. "We can't always rely on David and Tim the whole time."

Olowokandi scored 16 points and Keith Closs, starting for the injured Taylor, had a season-high 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting and grabbed eight boards for the Clippers, who shot 40 percent (30-of-76) and hit 15-of-21 free throws.

"Obviously, they are a good, competitive team who after the Mavs game probably felt like losing to us would have been the ultimate loss," Olowokandi said. "Tim Duncan just came out determined tonight and did what he does best."
