Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- With superstar Vince Carter hobbled by a right ankle injury, the Toronto Raptors had no answers for a pair of superstars on the San Antonio Spurs.

Tim Duncan scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and David Robinson added 14 and 10 as the Spurs broke out early and cruised to their fourth straight victory, 92-74 over the Raptors.

Carter entered the game averaging 30.2 points in his last four games but went 3-of-12 from the field and scored just six points in 30 minutes before leaving the game for good midway through the third quarter. He has missed seven games with a left knee strain that almost forced him to sit out the Slam-Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend.

"The leg is hurting more than anything," Carter said. "It's not an excuse. It was just a struggle throughout the whole game. They stayed on top of us from start to finish and it was hard to get anything going."

The Spurs never trailed as they opened a 22-point halftime lead and led by as many as 24 en route to their 12th win in 13 games. The Midwest Division leaders have won by double digits 10 times during their hot streak.

Rookie Morris Peterson scored 14 points and Antonio Davis added 11 for the Raptors, who suffered their second straight loss after winning their previous three.

Duncan's presence was felt early as he blocked three shots by Davis in the first 7 1/2 minutes. Antonio Daniels made consecutive 3-pointers to start a 17-4 surge as the Spurs moved out to a 27-14 lead with 4:07 remaining in the first quarter.

Duncan had nine points and six rebounds and Daniels scored all eight of his points in the first period as the Spurs shot 56 percent (14-of-25) and grabbed a 33-17 advantage.

"We came out hard early on," Robinson said. "I thought the defense was great. Tim Duncan blocks the shots inside early, and that took a lot of steam out of them because they're a strong physical team, and they like to get to the basket."

Carter missed all four of his shots in the second quarter as his leg continued to bother him and the rest of the Raptors could not find the basket either. Toronto shot a dismal 23 percent (5-of-22) in the second quarter and scored just 12 points.

Duncan had 15 points and 10 rebounds at the half as the Spurs limited Toronto to 32 percent (13-of-41) shooting over the first two quarters and built a 51-29 lead.

The 29 points tied a franchise low for the Raptors, who did it on two previous occasions, the most recent coming in the first half against the Chicago Bulls on December 13, 1997.

"It was ugly," Toronto guard Mark Jackson said. "In order to be one of the elite, you can't have games where you don't fight. We can't accept that."

A layup by Peterson capped a 13-6 surge and cut the deficit to 57-42 with 6:37 to play in the third quarter. Derek Anderson answered with consecutive baskets and Duncan followed with a jumper as San Antonio extended its lead to 63-42 with 4:19 left.

"We've given up enough leads that we know you can't let down on anyone," Duncan said. "It seems like we've been up 10, 12, 15 points at times, then come out in the third and give up 10 straight. We really tried to motivate ourselves to get out there and push all the way to the end."

Carter went 1-for-4 from the field in the third quarter before leaving with 2:39 remaining.

Robinson scored six points and Samaki Walker added five as the Spurs opened up a 70-48 lead after three quarters. San Antonio took its largest lead at 84-58 on a jumper by Danny Ferry with 5:20 left.

"We played pretty good defense, but at the same time, Toronto had one of those games we all have about two or three times a year where nothing can go right," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "It was just a bad combination."

Anderson scored 16 points and Walker contributed 10 off the bench for the Spurs, who shot 48 percent (36-of-75) and outrebounded Toronto, 47-39.

The Raptors shot 39 percent (30-of-78), including 2-of-11 from 3-point range.
