Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- It was supposed to be Tim Duncan vs. Chris Webber. It turned out to be the Charles Smith show.

Smith scored a career-high 32 points and led a long-range barrage by the San Antonio Spurs, who made a resounding statement against the NBA's top team with a 115-92 rout of the Sacramento Kings.

A 1997 first-round pick of the Miami Heat, Smith never lived up to expectations and played overseas last season before signing with the Spurs as a free agent.

The 6-4 guard, whose previous high was 21 points this season, was firing on all cylinders Thursday. He made 13-of-20 shots from the field and finished 4-of-5 from 3-point range.

"Tonight was a real big night for me," Smith said. "I was able to get a lot of looks and hit some shots. I also made some cuts and guys found me and I was able to get some easy baskets."

Rookie Tony Parker, Smith's backcourt mate, also had a big night as he scored 15 points, including all three shots from beyond the arc.

As a team, the Spurs made their first 11 3-pointers and went 12-of-16 overall from the arc. Sacramento was just 3-of-16.

Sparked by Smith and Parker, who combined for 25 points in the first half, the Spurs opened a commanding 68-45 advantage.

"Lots of guys contributed tonight," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Charles Smith had a heck of a night. Tony Parker ran the team well, he was very aggressive. On defense he was super and on offense he was aggressive."

San Antonio led by as many as 41 points in the third quarter as it improved to just 3-7 against the top four teams in the Western Conference while beating the Kings for the first time in four tries.

Thanks to Smith and Parker, the matchup between the All-Stars down low never materialized. Duncan finished with nine points -- his lowest total this season -- and 13 rebounds while Webber had 13 and four.

"We knew coming in we were 0-3 against these guys," Duncan said. "We played well at home against them and thought we should have won that game. Then we got blown out twice on the road. That was all the motivation we needed."

Reserve Malik Rose added 23 points for the Spurs, who have won four straight games for the first time since a season-high 10-game run from December 1-21.

Bobby Jackson scored 18 points to lead the Kings, who fell to 12-12 on the road and had their lead atop the Pacific Division reduced to three games over the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers. Sacramento is an NBA-best 28-2 at home.

"We got beat, we got killed," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "They shot the heck out of it. We had no answers. We gave guys shots and they made them. They were really good."

The Spurs decided things rather quickly, scoring the game's first six points and opening a 21-11 advantage with 4:43 left in the first quarter on Smith's second 3-pointer.

Parker made a jumper, Rose scored inside and Parker drilled a 25-footer from the right side, extending the margin to 33-18 with under two minutes left.

Smith had 13 points and Parker 12 as the Spurs settled for a 40-25 cushion after the first quarter. The duo went 9-of-11 from the field in the period, including 5-of-5 from 3-point range.

As a team, the Spurs shot 65 percent (15-of-23) in the quarter and made all six of their 3-pointers.

The outburst matched a season high for points in quarter by the Spurs, who scored 40 in the first quarter against Seattle on November 21.

The quarter also served as reminder that the Kings still have plenty of work to do on the defensive end. On Sunday, the Kings allowed 47 points in the second quarter of a 126-116 loss to Seattle.

Sacramento got as close as 12 points early in the second quarter. But David Robinson, who scored 10 points, made an inside basket and Antonio Daniels sank a 3-pointer, extending the margin to 47-30.

The Spurs took their biggest lead of the half at 66-42 with 45 seconds left in the period when Steve Smith hit a jumper.

"We all know they have the best record in the league and are having a great year," Steve Smith said. "We now know that we can beat them. We've now beaten them once and lost to them in overtime.

"I think in the first game, we weren't together. In tonight's game, I think we put things together. A little fear factor played a role tonight because we came out hungry and played pretty well."

In the half, the Spurs shot a blistering 63 percent (27-of-43) and made all eight of their 3-pointers. San Antonio shot 52 percent (47-of-91) overall and also held a 50-36 rebounding advantage.

"Tonight you have to give those guys (Spurs) credit," Webber said. "They didn't miss a three in the first half. We've had some great battles against these guys."

A layup by Rose, who made 9-of-18 shots, gave the Spurs their biggest lead at 91-50 with 4:59 to play in the third quarter.

Charles Smith scored 13 points in the third quarter and the Spurs held a 98-52 bulge entering the final 12 minutes.

San Antonio was so good from the field that it did not miss its first shot from 3-point range until Steve Smith misfired with 46 seconds left in the third quarter.

The Kings shot 41 percent (36-of-88).
