Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan recorded his league-leading 48th double-double and Derek Anderson scored 25 points as the San Antonio Spurs continued their dominance of the Vancouver Grizzlies with a 91-77 victory.

Duncan had 19 points and 13 rebounds and also blocked three shots as the Spurs defeated the Grizzlies for the 15th straight time.

The Spurs have not lost to Vancouver since February 12, 1997. San Antonio finished that season with a franchise-worst 20-62 record and selected Duncan with the first pick in the draft.

Anderson and Antonio Daniels each scored four points when the Spurs closed the third quarter with a 10-2 burst, tying the score at 67-67 when Daniels made two free throws with nine-tenths of a second left.

Daniels scored the first six points of the fourth period when the Grizzlies shot a putrid 16 percent (3-of-19). Duncan made two free throws to cap a 13-0 run and stretch San Antonio's lead to 80-67 with 4:08 to go.

The seven-footer made just 3-of-9 free throws, falling to 58 percent from the line for the season. The rest of the Spurs combined to make 13-of-15 free throws.

"We just turned it up a little bit," Duncan said of the run. "We had made a lot of mistakes throughout the whole game, but we got a couple of defensive stops in a row.

"Antonio hit a big three for us. From all over the court, people started hitting shots. That's when we really pulled away."

Daniels, who spent his rookie season (1997-98) with Vancouver before he was traded for Felipe Lopez and Carl Herrera, made 4-of-7 shots and scored 16 points in 30 minutes off the bench.

San Antonio center David Robinson made just 3-of-16 shots but contributed 11 rebounds as the Spurs won for the fifth time in six games and remained one game behind the Utah Jazz for the lead in the Midwest Division.

"I thought our defense kind of went through a real bad stretch in the first half," Robinson said. "They had wide-open jump shots and they hadn't been shooting that well lately and we gave them the opportunity to kind of get in and stay in the game.

"That's got to be our signature. That's the way we're going to win games, by our defense. It was inconsistent early in the game, but as the game progressed in the second half, that was like us."

Mike Bibby had 24 points and eight assists and Shareef Abdur-Rahim totaled 12 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists for Vancouver, which is mired in its third seven-game losing skid of the season.

"I don't think they quit. I think they just tried too hard and in doing so they didn't make good choices," Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "Bad shot selection, we kept the ball on one side of the floor as opposed to the first half when we came off pick-and-rolls. For whatever reason we decided we were going to keep it in our hands and play with it and we turned it over a couple of times."

Bryant Reeves collected 12 points and 10 boards for the Grizzlies, who went to the free-throw line just 12 times, making 10.

Vancouver was playing for the first time since Saturday's 98-88 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers when three fans wearing oversized grizzly bear outfits and T-shirts with the phrase, "Save the Grizzlies" came onto the court in the fourth quarter, drawing approving applause from the 19,193 in attendance. Just 10,798 watched the Grizzlies lose to the Spurs.

The Grizzlies shot 51 percent (20-of-39) in the first 24 minutes and took a 49-47 edge into the break. Vancouver had 16 assists and committed just seven turnovers in the first half. But in the final two periods, the Grizzlies had 10 turnovers and just seven assists.
