Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Speedy Claxton showed the Milwaukee Bucks that the San Antonio Spurs have a pair of point guards, too. Claxton stepped in for the injured Tony Parker and nearly posted a triple-double as the Spurs outclassed the Bucks, 107-94, to reach 50 wins for the fourth straight season. On a night when the Spurs honored retiring star center David Robinson, Claxton stole the spotlight. He was forced into extended action after Parker - the rapidly improving second-year point guard - suffered a sprained right thumb in the first quarter and did not return. Claxton responded with his best game of the season. He scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting and added career highs of 11 assists and nine rebounds. "He was fantastic. He stepped in and did a great job," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He's slowly been getting more and more time, getting used to what's going on out there. He played a heck of a game for us." "I wasn't going for the triple-double," Claxton said. "The guys were saying at the half that I was close. When I was one assist away and one rebound away, I started to think about it. I was letting Sam Cassell take shots just so I could get the rebound." Much has been made of Milwaukee's acquisition of Gary Payton, who plays alongside Cassell and gives the Bucks a dual point-guard backcourt. But neither one had much success in slowing down Claxton, who sparked the Spurs to an easy win. Tim Duncan had 31 points and 10 rebounds for San Antonio (50-21), which is 30-8 since January 1. Since drafting Duncan first overall in 1997, the only season in which the Spurs did not win 50 games was the lockout-shortened 1998-99 campaign, when they went 37-13 and won the NBA championship. Robinson, one of the NBA's 50 Greatest Players, started and collected 10 points and five rebounds in 20 minutes. After the game, he was honored in a ceremony at the SBC Center. "I'm overwhelmed. It's been an unbelievable night," Robinson said. "I had the people here who have impacted my life the most over the last 14 years. To receive this kind of blessing is amazing." Cassell scored 19 points and Desmond Mason added 17 for the Bucks (34-37), whose lead over Washington in the race for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference was reduced to one-half game. Milwaukee was swept in the season series after winning its last six meetings with San Antonio. "Defensively, they have such good control over the other team's strengths," Bucks coach George Karl said. "I'd say they are my favorite right now. They are unreal when they have it all going." Parker missed four of his five shots in the first quarter and could be seen on the bench holding his thumb in pain. Claxton came on and scored six points in a 16-7 surge that opened the second quarter and gave the Spurs a 40-29 lead. "(Parker) already sprained it and he did it again," Popovich said. "It's going to be sore a while. It will be a game-to-game sort of thing." "I got in the lane and made easy shots for everybody," Claxton said. "I got the ball to everyone where they could score." The Bucks trailed, 52-42, at halftime. They were within 62-51 after a layup by Mason with 8:48 left in the third quarter before Duncan scored six points in a 16-8 run. A pair of free throws by Malik Rose made it 78-59 with 3:11 left. Milwaukee got no closer than 12 points thereafter. Center Joel Przybilla was ejected for a flagrant-2 foul on Rose midway through the final period. In the closing minutes, Claxton had a chance for a 10th rebound, but Duncan snatched it away. "He stole it from me," Claxton said. "I told him, 'I have it.' I think he did it to get his double-double." Rose scored 18 points for the Spurs, who shot 50 percent (40-of-80) and held a 44-33 advantage on the boards. Tim Thomas and Michael Redd scored 15 points each and Payton added 12 for the Bucks, who shot 44 percent (34-of-77). In the 30-minute postgame ceremony, Robinson was presented with a $100,000 gift from the Spurs for Carver Academy, the school for disadvantaged youths he started in San Antonio. "The guys giving me the money for the kids, that affected me deeply," Robinson said. Every relationship is a two-way relationship. I saw the generous side of them tonight." In addition, NBA commissioner David Stern announced in a videotape played on the scoreboard that the league's Community Service Award will named after Robinson. "When David Stern gave me the award for community service and said my name would be on it, it made me think (that) to have that for a legacy, I could not have a better legacy. I'm thankful for that," Robinson said.
