Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Although many consider it an essential facet of the game, the San Antonio Spurs proved that rebounding is overrated.

Steve Smith scored 29 points and Tim Duncan added 26 as the Spurs extended their winning streak over the Jazz to nine games with a 98-92 victory despite becoming the first team in NBA history to be held without an offensive rebound.

San Antonio has not lost to its Midwest Division rivals since February 6, 2000 and has won its last three visits to the Delta Center. Remarkably, the Spurs were able to continue their dominance despite setting a league record for futility on the offensive glass.

Since offensive rebounds became an official statistic in 1973, no team had been held without one. Seven teams shared the dubious record of one, including Indiana Pacers last Friday.

San Antonio led the entire second half and took an 82-69 lead after Malik Rose opened the fourth quarter with a jumper. But Jon Amaechi made two jumper during an 11-0 run that brought Utah within 82-80 on a jumper by Karl Malone with 8:59 left.

The Jazz remained close and trailed, 90-88, after Malone sank another jumper with 2:01 remaining.

After Duncan and Utah's John Stockton traded misses, Terry Porter sank a clutch jumper with 50 seconds left. Amaechi, who scored a season-high 18 points, cut the deficit to 92-90 on a layup before Smith sank two free throws at 28 seconds.

"We did a good job getting back into the game and then didn't do anything about it offensively or defensively in the last minute or so to win it," Stockton said. "The entire game probably hurt more than the end did, but the end is what you remember."

Stockton's runner rattled out and Porter and Duncan each buried a pair of free throws in the final 20 seconds to seal the win. San Antonio has split its last 16 games and avoided matching a season-high three-game slide.

"(The Spurs) did the same thing they have been doing to us all along," Sloan said. "They come out and make stops and have us in situations where we try to outscore them by shooting outside shots. That's the perfect way for us to play as far as they are concerned."

Porter and David Robinson each scored 10 points for the Spurs, who shot 53 percent (30-of-57) and made 28-of-29 free throws.

"These teams really respect each other," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "They go after each other hard. We shot really well from the field and that got us over the hump."

"This is a big road victory for us," said Duncan, who made 11-of-18 shots. "We played a lot better for a lot longer. When we get good looks and we knock down shots, we're tough to beat."

Malone had 23 points and 10 rebounds and rookie Andrei Kirilenko scored 16 points for the Jazz, who have lost three of their last four.

Stockton added 10 points and nine assists and John Crotty scored seven of his nine points in the first quarter, when Utah jumped out to a 28-21 lead.

The Jazz made 12-of-22 shots in the first quarter, including 3-of-5 3-pointers. Kirilenko made a pair of 3-pointers and scored eight points in the period.

But San Antonio, which made just 7-of-18 shots in the first quarter, shot 64 percent (9-of-14) in the second. It made all eight of its free throws and half its eight 3-pointers.

Utah had a 32-27 lead before San Antonio scored 17 of the next 21 points. Smith scored 13 during the stertch, inclduing three of his five 3-pointers.

He capped the run with a pair of 3-pointers to give San Antonio a 44-36 advantage with 2:07 to go. The Spurs had a 51-45 halftime lead and never trailed in the second half.
