Game Story

SACRAMENTO (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan played like he is sick and tired of hearing about how the San Antonio Spurs have fallen from the ranks of the elite teams in the Western Conference.

Duncan scored a season-high 36 points, grabbed 21 rebounds and even got his free-throw shooting in order as the Spurs posted a 97-91 victory over one of the conference's top units, the Sacramento Kings.

Having lost most of the luster off their 1999 NBA championship with a first-round playoff ousting last season and enduring an uncharacteristic four-game losing streak from January 13-20, the Spurs looked vulnerable.

Duncan had 29 points and 17 rebounds in a rout of last-place Vancouver on Tuesday but seemed even more primed to knock the Kings out of the first place in the Pacific Division. The 7-foot forward knocked down 15-of-23 shots and blocked a pair as the Spurs handed Sacramento just its fourth loss in 22 home games.

"I just did what they let me do," Duncan said modestly. "The last couple of games, I've been feeling close to 100 percent."

Duncan, who has struggled mightily from the line this season, misfired on 5-of-6 free throws against the Grizzlies, drawing a standing ovation for the one he made and refusing to speak to the media afterwards as a result of the insult.

On Wednesday, he hit 6-of-9 from the line as the Spurs improved to 2-1 against the Kings, who slipped one-half game behind Portland in the Pacific Division.

"For the past three weeks, he started to get his timing back and his confidence in his shot," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "This is his best game of the season but it has been coming."

Chris Webber suffered a laceration on his left eyelid after being poked by Spurs center David Robinson late in the first half.

"I think he's going to be OK," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "It got poked more than anything else. He said is vision got better but he obviously wasn't 100 percent but I think it will be OK."

Webber returned to action in the second half and finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds but was little match for Duncan.

"It's safe to say, Tim is back," Robinson said. "He looked great tonight. In fact, the last week he's looked great. He's getting his shot back and tonight he shot the free throws better."

Derek Anderson scored 20 points and Robinson had 11, seven rebounds and three blocks for San Antonio, which shot 51 percent (42-of-82) and held a commanding 57-40 advantage on the boards. The Spurs overcame 18 turnovers while forcing just seven.

"Coming off this four-game losing streak was a little frustrating," Robinson said. "These last two games, we look like more of a team, our defense has really stepped up a lot, especially towards the end of the game when we feel that we can get stops."

Peja Stojakovic scored 23 points, Jason Williams 14 and Doug Christie added 11 for the Kings, who shot 39 percent (33-of-85) but outscored the Spurs, 21-10, at the line.

Clearly affected by the prominent swelling around his eye, Webber was 8-of-25 from the field and Sacramento misfired on 16-of-20 3-pointers.

"I'm in a lot of pain right now," Webber said. "It's blurry and the light is definitely hurting right now. There's a good chance it could get worse by the morning but I'll sleep on it and wait until tomorrow."

A tight contest throughout, the game featured 16 lead changes and 14 ties before the Spurs finally moved in front for good when Anderson snapped a 73-73 tie with 6.7 seconds left in the third quarter.

Christie answered with a basket but Anderson hit a 22-footer and Duncan made 1-of-2 from the line. Undaunted, Webber drove for a dunk but Terry Porter was good from 21 feet and Danny Ferry hit a long jumper for an 83-77 cushion with 6:55 remaining.

Anderson scored 10 fourth-quarter points while Duncan managed just three. But after Webber hit a free throw to get the Kings within 93-91 with 1:16 left, Duncan hit the game's biggest shot, a running hook shot in the lane with 57 seconds remaining to give the Spurs a four-point lead.

Webber missed a seven-footer, got his own rebound but was called for a charge while trying to go through Duncan on the Kings' ensuing trip. Sacramento center Vlade Divac drew a technical for arguing the call while Webber stalked off and Anderson hit the ensuing free throw to make it 96-91 with 37 seconds left.

Anderson capped the scoring by making 1-of-2 from the stripe with 28 seconds to go as San Antonio completed its most impressive road win of the season.

"I'm sure that was their goal," Webber said. "To get a win and boost their morale. They haven't been playing well of late and to come in to get this win against us gives them confidence going into the All-Star break."
