Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- A second look at the San Antonio Spurs' defense did little to help the Washington Wizards. Tim Duncan had 16 points and 11 rebounds and Tony Parker scored 16 points as the Spurs dominated the Wizards for the second time this season en route to a 94-72 victory. San Antonio posted a 95-71 victory at Washington in the first meeting on November 15. The Wizards scored a season-low nine points on 4-of-17 shooting in the second quarter of that game, finishing at just 34 percent from the floor. The rematch produced nearly the same results as Washington managed only 11 points on 5-of-22 shooting in the second period. The Wizards shot just 33 percent (26-of-79) overall, including 3-of-13 from 3-point range, and 17-of-31 from the line. "The Spurs are a pretty darn good team, one of the best in this league," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "I thought we executed well and gave a good effort. This is just one of those times when you have to take your lumps." It was another dominant defensive performance for the Spurs, who are the only team in the NBA allowing less than 83 points per game and have held opponents under 40 percent shooting this season. "We're much further along than I thought," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "They're starting to get the flow. Some of the guys have really contributed." "It looks easy but it's not," said Spurs center Rasho Nesterovic, who had five blocks. "Everybody understands the system. We all know what our role is." San Antonio seized control as Washington struggled to score, opening the second period with a 17-5 run. Duncan, Tony Parker and Ron Mercer each had four points during the stretch, giving the Spurs a 39-24 cushion with 3:40 remaining in the first half. San Antonio was never threatened the second half, cruising to its seventh victory in its last eight meetings with Washington. Mercer tied a season high with 14 points and was one of six players in double figures for the Spurs, who shot 50 percent (40-of-80) and held a 52-38 rebounding advantage. "It was a good game for us," Popovich said. "We had a lot of people participate and play well. On defense we rebounded and we shared the ball on offense. It was a good night." San Antonio has won 15 of its last 16 games overall and eight of nine at the SBC Center, where it is 15-4 this season. Gilbert Arenas scored 17 points but was the only player in double figures for the Wizards, who have not won at San Antonio since winning at the Alamodome on December 11, 1999. "Against a team like that (the Spurs) you have to do the absolute best you can do and then hope it is your night," Hughes said. "Tonight it was not our night."
