Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- After three quarters, the San Antonio Spurs remembered they were playing the Golden State Warriors.

Tim Duncan had 36 points and 11 rebounds for his 41st double-double of the season as San Antonio dominated the fourth quarter to continue its mastery of Golden State with a 98-89 victory.

The Spurs outscored the Warriors, 31-17, in the last period en route to their 15th straight win over the Bay Area team. They have won eight in a row in Golden State and have not lost anywhere to the Warriors since a 90-83 setback on March 4, 1998.

"We didn't play three regular quarters," said Duncan, who also had eight assists. "I thought we did a great job of grinding it out.

"I didn't know (about San Antonio's winning streak vs. Golden State). This was the one we needed though. We needed to get a little roll here and not drop this one to them. To walk out of this building with a victory knowing they just beat Boston, it's a great win for us."

Antonio Daniels came off the bench to score 20 points and David Robinson added 16 for San Antonio, which improved to just 3-14 when trailing after halftime.

"I thought we did a really good job in the second half coming out and playing the defense we're used to playing," Spurs coach Greg Popovich said. "Golden State did a great job in the first half, scored a lot of points. They were really active, really ran on us. I thought we really tightened up in the second half and made the stops we needed to make to generate some offense."

Jason Richardson had a career-high 28 points and Antawn Jamison contributed 26 for the Warriors, who lost for the sixth time in their last seven games.

Golden State played without starting guard Larry Hughes, who has a sprained left ankle. In his absence, the Warriors started Richardson and Gilbert Arenas at the guard positions, marking the first time since April 22, 1990 (Tim Hardaway and Sarunas Marciulionis) that two Golden State rookies started in the same backcourt.

Arenas had eight points and five rebounds in his first career start.

"Larry just got hurt. If Larry was OK, he would have been playing," Arenas said. "I think I pushed the ball well. I still have a couple of kinks that I needed to get out of my system. I left my feet a lot when I was trying to make some of the passes, but as I get more in there, I will become one of the premier point guards in the league."

The Warriors took their largest lead with 4:40 left in the third quarter as Jamison made three free throws for a 76-64 advantage.

San Antonio managed to close within five points at the end of the quarter and went on a 13-0 run early in the fourth with Duncan and several reserves on the floor.

Malik Rose started things off with a jump shot 55 seconds into the quarter and Danny Ferry gave the Spurs the lead for good, 86-85, with a running jump shot with 8:21 left.

Cherokee Parks capped the run with a basket with 6:10 to go that gave San Antonio a 92-85 edge.

"We had a bunch of big baskets," said Ferry, who was playing his second game back from a strained back. "Cherokee Parks... the shot I hit... In general, we really turned it up in the fourth quarter. We were down by 12 points. There were a bunch of big baskets to get to that point. We got the momentum of the game pretty well and got a great win for us."

"I think anytime the bench has an opportunity to come in and spark the team it's definitely a good thing," Daniels said. "Cherokee came in and hit some big shots -- Danny Ferry, Terry Porter. I think anytime everyone contributes and we're very balanced I think that's when we're at our best."

The Warriors were held to just one field goal in the first 10 minutes of the final period until Bob Sura hit a 3-pointer with 2:37 remaining. That basket began an 8-2 spurt that pulled Golden State within, 102-97, but the Spurs made 7-of-10 free throws in the final minute to seal the victory.

"They got it going in the fourth quarter," Jamison said. "Cherokee hit some big baskets. It wasn't anything they did defensively. Offensively, we just couldn't get the shots to go in. I think we got some decent looks, it was just a tale of them taking their time and running their offense and being calm and poised."

Golden State, which shot over 65 percent in the first quarter, went just 5-of-22 from the field in the fourth.

"For us, we weren't taking our time and weren't doing the things that we did in the first three quarters offensively to go down the stretch," Jamison continued. "The span of about five or six minutes offensively, us not taking our time and doing the things we need to do to get a basket."

Terry Porter scored 10 points, including his 15,500th career point with a basket late in the first, Steve Smith had eight and Rose finished with six and seven rebounds for the Spurs, who shot 49 percent and were outrebounded, 46-42.

Sura collected 17 points and seven assists and Danny Fortson grabbed 15 rebounds for the Warriors, but starting center Erick Dampier was held to one rebound and zero points in 23 minutes.
