Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- The perfect tonic for the San Antonio Spurs' woes was the arrival of Tim Duncan's favorite opponent.

Duncan had 23 points and nine rebounds before sitting out nearly the entire fourth quarter and Antonio Daniels sparked a pivotal second-quarter run as the Spurs posted their 14th straight victory over the Vancouver Grizzlies, 110-77.

Daniels, who was acquired from Vancouver in June 1998, finished with 16 points for the Spurs, who snapped their four-game losing streak -- their longest since selecting Duncan with the first pick in the 1997 draft.

Since his arrival in the NBA, Duncan and the Spurs have owned Vancouver, beating the Grizzlies by an average of nearly 13 points per contest.

Tuesday's meeting represented the biggest margin of victory this season for San Antonio and the largest margin of defeat for Vancouver.

Duncan made 11-of-22 shots from the field but once again struggled at the line, making only 1-of-6 free throws. When he made his lone shot from the line, the crowd errupted in a cheer.

Despite the victory, the strain of his latest debacle at the line may have been the reason Duncan skipped talking to the media following the contest.

"He's trying to become as confident at the line as he is on the floor," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It's a pyschological blip and he's going to have it as his career continues. He'll never get over it. He just needs to work through it."

"It's the first time I've seen anyone hit a free throw and get a standing ovation," Daniels said. "He was kind of laughing about it. I think Tim is much too good a shooter from the field to struggle from the line. Once he gets himself together he will be fine."

Michael Dickerson scored 16 points for the Grizzlies, who have lost five in a row.

"I want our guys to feel the pain and the embarrassment (of a loss like this) and not want that to ever happen again," Grizzlies coach Sidney Lowe said. "I think you have to take games like this and use it as a motivating factor to get going."

San Antonio held a 28-22 lead after 12 minutes and Duncan hit a 20-footer to ignite a 15-2 burst. Terry Porter followed Duncan's jumper with a layup but Shareef Abdur-Rahim countered with a basket for Vancouver.

Daniels' 3-pointer and layup 28 seconds apart pushed the lead to 37-24. Duncan scored with 6:23 to go to give San Antonio a 15-point lead and rookie Derrick Dial had a tip-in 26 seconds later.

Daniels capped the burst and put San Antonio on top, 43-24, with a layup with 5:35 left in the half.

"We did a nice job and it all started from the beginning," Spurs center David Robinson said. "I think we made it real hard for them. They're the type of team who usually stays in there and battles, but they really weren't able to do that tonight."

The Spurs, who regained the services of injured forwards Malik Rose and Danny Ferry, also got 16 points and 13 rebounds from Samaki Walker. Rose, who was out with a hip injury, had 11 points and seven rebounds while Ferry, who was sidelined with a fractured nose, had 10 points and seven rebounds.

"I felt real good tonight," Rose said. "I was excited and ready to go."

"It's real important to have guys who can step in and play well," Walker added. "The season only gets tougher as it wears on. It's real important to have depth."

Duncan had 10 points in the opening quarter as San Antonio built a 28-22 lead. Duncan was 5-of-8 from the field and the Spurs made 13-of-19 shots.

The Spurs led 60-38 at the half as Duncan had 20 and Daniels 12.

Vancouver made just 38.5 percent (30-of-78) of its shots in the contest and was outrebounded, 53-31.

"They killed us on the boards," Lowe said. "We're not boxing out and when we do box out, we're not jumping. They have two or three guys -- even their guards -- they're jumping out and we're just standing there."
