Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tony Parker was ready for the best point guard in the Eastern Conference. Parker scored 11 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and All-Star Tim Duncan collected 21 points and 21 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the struggling New Jersey Nets, 92-78. After Kenyon Martin's jumper cut the Nets' deficit to 83-77 with 1:41 left, Parker ended his spurt of six straight points with a running hook to restore an eight-point lead. The Spurs outscored New Jersey, 9-1, thereafter. "I think I played well tonight, but I just wanted to go out there and win," Parker said. "I don't feel that I was affected too much about the talk of the matchup." All-Star point guard Jason Kidd had 11 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds but shot just 4-of-18 from the floor and was not a factor late in the game for the Nets. "(Parker) has been playing great since the All-Star break, he's been playing extremely well," Kidd said. "When you're in the Western Conference, you go against a lot of talented point guards, night in and night out. You learn very quickly." Argentine rookie Emanuel Ginobili finished with 18 points, seven assists, six rebounds and five steals for the Spurs, who have won 14 of their last 16 home games. "It was a fun game tonight to play," Ginobili said. "I was really feeling good and just got into a rhythm." Ginobili established career highs in assists and steals and matched a career best with six baskets. "I was really amazed tonight. The creativity that this kid shows is unbelievable," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Sometimes he scares me out there because I don't know what is coming, but he is so creative and we have to give him the freedom to just make things happen." New Jersey's road woes continued. It has lost six in a row away from home and two on a four-game trip that continues in Houston and New Orleans. Overall, the Nets have dropped six of seven and nine of their last 13 games as their Atlantic Division lead over Boston and Philadelphia dwindled to 2 1/2 games. On the flip side, the Spurs have won five of six. Bruce Bowen scored 11 points and former Net Stephen Jackson added 10 for San Antonio, which extended a two-point third-quarter lead with a 14-3 run. After Martin's free throw narrowed the gap to 50-48 with 5:43 to go in the third, Jackson sank a long jumper to start a spurt that ended with two free throws by Duncan with 1:24 left. "We didn't make any shots down the stretch," Kidd said. "We felt that we had a run in us, but we didn't hit any shots." The Spurs shot 46 percent (36-of-79) from the floor and enjoyed a 50-44 rebounding edge while pulling within four games of Midwest Division-leading Dallas. Martin had 19 points and eight rebounds, Kerry Kittles scored 14 points and Aaron Williams 11 for the Nets, who shot just 37 percent (30-of-82) and were crushed in the paint, 54-24. "If you're going to shoot 37 percent, you're asking a helluva lot from your defense, and sooner or later you're going to have some breakdowns," New Jersey coach Byron Scott said.
