Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Reserves Antonio Daniels and Malik Rose combined for 13 points in the fourth quarter as the San Antonio Spurs held off the first-place Utah Jazz, 91-83, in a Midwest Division matchup.

Daniels made 4-of-5 free throws and scored eight of his 13 points in the final period, when San Antonio went 12-of-13 from the line and outscored Utah, 26-22. Rose had seven of his 11 points in the fourth, including a pair of baskets during an 8-2 spurt that gave San Antonio an 82-73 advantage with 3:33 left.

Derek Anderson scored 18 points and Tim Duncan added 13 and nine rebounds for San Antonio, which defeated the Jazz for the second time this season and cut Utah's lead in the division to 2 1/2 games. Duncan left the game late in the third quarter after bumping his left knee in a collision with Utah guard John Starks. The seven-footer returned early in the fourth.

"Both teams went after each other like they always do," said San Antonio coach Greg Popovich about the combined 64 fouls. "It's always a physical game. Both teams have a lot of great competitors and I thought we did a good job at both ends of the court. Like I said earlier, we thought this would be a huge game for us and we're thrilled to come out with the victory."

David Robinson picked up his fifth foul early in the fourth quarter and played just 19 minutes. He had 11 points and only one rebound.

"I think the third and fourth quarter was pretty key because we got into some foul trouble and then Tim got hurt and the bench did a great job," Robinson said. "They came in and rebounded the ball. Defensively, I thought we were really good tonight. We took away a lot of their easy buckets and I think that's what really pulled us through."

Rose pulled down 11 boards and fellow reserve Terry Porter added 10 points and seven rebounds, helping San Antonio to a 44-36 advantage on the boards.

Karl Malone had 19 points and 13 rebounds and John Stockton added 16 points for Utah, which shot just 38 percent (30-of-79) after connecting on 54 percent (44-of-81) of its shots in Saturday's 125-114 win over Golden State.

"That game didn't feel very good, I don't think it was a very good game," Stockton said. "Their big guys were out of the game a lot and we failed to take advantage of it. It was just one of those games."

San Antonio shot 87.5 percent (35-of-40) from the free-throw line and won for just the second time in its last six road games.

The first half featured six lead changes and finished tied at 41 when Malone made a free throw with 1.1 seconds remaining.

The Spurs used a 9-0 burst to grab a 65-59 lead when Anderson made two free throws with 48 seconds left in the third. Jacque Vaughn, who led Utah's substitutes with nine points, answered with two free throws 22 seconds later.

Vaughn hit a 20-footer with 9:45 remaining and after Robinson was called for on offensive foul, made another jumper 15 seconds later to tie the score, 67-67. The Jazz failed to get the lead by missing three straight shots and San Antonio went ahead for good when Porter completed a three-point play with 7:37 to play.

"It's disappointing because we are going to be battling them hopefully all year long for the division title," said Utah forward Danny Manning, who missed all four of his shots in 11 minutes off the bench. "But it's a game that we lost and felt we should have had a better showing."
