Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Derek Anderson is proving to be a great complement to the "Twin Towers."

Anderson keyed a decisive fourth-quarter run and David Robinson and Tim Duncan were their normal powerful selves as the San Antonio Spurs earned a 99-95 victory over the struggling Washington Wizards.

Already with one of the most dominating inside games with Robinson and Duncan, the Spurs signed Anderson as a free agent in the offseason for help in the backcourt and he has not disappointed.

"They get doubled so much that you have to be able hit those shots to keep the pressure on the defense," Anderson said. "I used to go 1-on-1 and put pressure on people, but here I'm just filling a role and that helps them out. When they get doubled they feel confident that when they throw it out, they are going to get a result."

"He's all over the floor. We haven't had that in the past," Duncan said. "Having a player of his caliber at that position where people have turn their heads and keep and eye on him is great."

Anderson, San Antonio's second-leading scorer at 14.1 points per game, was quiet for the first three quarters before making his presence felt in the final period.

After sitting out the first 6 1/2 minutes of the fourth quarter, Anderson entered with 6:18 to play and the game tied, 82-82.

The Wizards scored five straight points to take a brief lead. But Anderson went to work, scoring six points in a 13-2 burst that provided the Spurs with a 95-89 lead. He capped the surge by hitting a 3-pointer with two minutes remaining and finished with 19 points.

"Derek was big and he has been like that for us all year," Robinson said.

On the interior, Robinson and Duncan did their parts to send Washington to its fifth straight loss. Robinson scored 21 points and grabbed 14 rebounds while Duncan had 19 and 10.

San Antonio (7-2) has won three straight games.

Rod Strickland netted 24 points and Richard Hamilton 19 for the Wizards (2-8).

"We got beat by a team that played a little bit better at the end of the game," Wizards coach Leonard Hamilton said. "Both teams got the same shot opportunities, but the difference in the game was theirs fell and ours didn't."

Despite being one of the worst offensive teams in the league, the Wizards were in the contest the whole way. Strickland hit two free throws and Mitch Richmond drilled a 3-pointer to give Washington an 87-82 lead with 5:51 left.

The Wizards reached their season average in points on Richmond's shot from behind the arc.

San Antonio, however, imposed its will and scored eight of the next 10 points -- all from the line -- and took the lead for good, 90-89, with 3:05 left on Sean Elliott's two foul shots.

Robinson hit two more free throws before Anderson provided the dagger with a 3-pointer from the right wing. Washington got no closer than four points thereafter.

After making just 8-of-13 free throws over the first three quarters, San Antonio went 13-of-18 from the line in the final period.

Antonio Daniels scored 14 points, all in the first half, and Elliott chipped in 13 for the Spurs, who shot 49 percent (37-of-76) and forced Washington into 15 turnovers.

Hamilton led an inspired effort from the Wizards in the first half, hitting his first seven shots and scoring 16 points as the Wizards held a 57-55 lead at the break. Washington was still in front by two points entering the final period.

But Hamilton went ice cold in the second half, making just 1-of-10 shots.

"We've been in every game, I think that we have to keep going," Hamilton said. "We can't get frustrated with ourselves, especially with our teammates. It is going to come around."

Cherokee Parks added 13 points and eight rebounds for Washington, which shot 43 percent (36-of-83) and held a slim 42-41 edge on the boards over the bigger Spurs.
