Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan was too much for the Indiana Pacers to handle with 30 points and a season-high 18 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs won their seventh straight game, 97-79.

Duncan made 11-of-24 shots and grabbed six offensive boards as he helped the Spurs hand the Pacers their worst home defeat this season and snap Indiana's two-game winning streak.

"We are playing real well right now but I'm not going to get too excited because it's still early in the season," Duncan said. "This is a good road win for us and we're happy to come out of here with the victory."

The All-Star 7-footer imposed his will on both ends of the court. The Spurs outrebounded the Pacers, 62-40, and made 26-of-33 free throws while Indiana only made 9-of-13.

"I believe they had 29 points in the first quarter and we were able to shut them down for the rest of the game," Duncan said. "Our emphasis was to attack them tonight because we know they are a good offensive rebounding team, so we tried to keep them off the offensive glass tonight."

Duncan has shot 64 percent the past three games and has led the Spurs in scoring in their last eight contests. It was his ninth double-double this season as San Antonio improved to 9-2.

"The game plan of playing Tim Duncan straight up worked for a while but then their size prevailed and took its toll," Pacers center Jeff Foster said. "They have a real good inside game and can really bang the boards."

Indiana (8-7) was within 73-68 with 10:34 remaining, but San Antonio went on an 18-3 run over the next seven minutes to put the game out of reach.

The loss was the Pacers' third straight on the second night of back-to-back games.

"We were a very tired team," Indiana coach Isiah Thomas said. "I sensed our team in the fourth quarter, with eight minutes to, fatigue set in. Physically and conditioning-wise they had no more to give. I got no complaints with the schedule we had after 15 games being 8-7."

Antonio Daniels scored 11 points and Steve Smith added 10 for San Antonio, which has not lost at Indiana since December 7, 1999. Rookie Tony Parker added nine points as the Spurs remained undefeated with him starting at point guard.

"We are coming together pretty well right now," said Spurs center David Robinson, who had 10 rebounds and eight points. "Our offense is more high octane than it usually is, but we still want to pride ourselves on our defense. We gave up a lot of points early in this game but we were able to toughen up as the game went on."

Jalen Rose and Reggie Miller scored 17 points apiece for Indiana, which lost its third straight to San Antonio.

"The results were not there," Rose said. "We didn't play well but we lost to a good team. When I go home tonight I will see it, replay it and not be able to sleep. But the results will be the same so I must put it behind us and get out there and get the job done."

Pacers rookie point guard Jamaal Tinsley, who had his first career triple-double against Washington on Thursday, managed just four points on 1-of-5 shooting with six assists, three rebounds, five turnovers and five fouls.

Indiana cut the deficit to 66-63 on Miller's 3-pointer with 2:11 remaining in the third quarter. But San Antonio scored the last seven points of the quarter, all on free throws, to take a double-digit advantage into the final period.
