Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- With a chance to snap their three-game losing streak, the San Antonio Spurs turned to their unquestioned leaders.

After Steve Smith hit a game-tying 3-pointer near the end of regulation, Tim Duncan and David Robinson dominated the first half of overtime as the Spurs rallied for a 105-98 triumph over the Orlando Magic.

Mired in its worst stretch of the season and facing a three-point deficit in the waning seconds, San Antonio got a clutch 25-footer from Smith with 8.5 seconds to play. Orlando missed a pair of shots as time was running out and Duncan and Robinson took over -- combining to score nine of the first 11 points in overtime.

Duncan finished with 29 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks while Robinson had a season-high 27 points and seven blocks.

"(The win) gives us a little confidence, makes us feel better about our team and stops the bleeding a little bit," he said. "Hopefully it will start us on the roll that we need."

"We needed every point today," Robinson said. "We're still struggling shooting the ball a little bit, but we're getting better."

Tracy McGrady had 26 points, a career-high 17 rebounds and six assists and Darrell Armstrong added 25 points for Orlando, which has dropped three of four.

Duncan opened the extra period with a short hook shot, but Pat Garrity countered with an 18-foot jumper for Orlando. Robinson gave San Antonio the lead for good, 94-92, with a 15-footer from the right corner with 3:10 left.

Duncan made it a five-point game 43 seconds later with a three-point play before a dunk by Robinson made it 99-92 with 65 seconds remaining. Orlando never got closer than five the rest of the way.

"They were making tough shots, that's what those big fellows do down there," Orlando forward Mike Miller said. "Our big guys did a great job. But making tough, difficult shots, you can't really do anything about that."

But Duncan and Robinson would not have had a chance in overtime had Smith not used a double screen to beat McGrady for the tying basket.

"We had the game won, I'm going to take the blame for this one," McGrady said. "I could have done a better job of holding Steve Smith. We were up by three and he hit that big three. I'm going to take the blame for that because if I would have stayed on him, he probably wouldn't have got that shot off.

"Once he hit that shot, it was like a dagger went into our hearts and everyone was hanging their heads. We still had overtime but that shot put us out right there."

Orlando coach Doc Rivers was bewildered at how Smith could be that open.

"Bottom line is that Steve Smith shouldn't be wide open," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "He's only the best 3-point shooter in the NBA. Obviously, someone fell asleep."

The Spurs, who have won six of the last eight games in the series, had not won since January 26.

"When Steve hit that big shot, we all felt a lot better about ourselves," Robinson said.
