Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- When the Seattle SuperSonics committed to shutting down All-Star Tim Duncan, they did not count on Devin Brown stepping up. Duncan had 18 of his 23 points in the opening half and Brown had eight of his 10 in the third quarter as the San Antonio Spurs posted a 96-90 triumph over the SuperSonics. Duncan was dominant in the first half, making 8-of-12 shots and grabbing seven rebounds. Seattle made a commitment to getting the Spurs star under control after the break, but Brown spoiled the strategy. Brown had a total of 11 points in his previous four contests but made 3-of-4 shots in the third quarter as San Antonio was able to remain in control. "I'm just coming off the bench to provide energy," Brown said. "That's what they ask of me. I was playing hard and was fortunate to make a couple of baskets. Right now, I'm just trying to build trust. I'm just trying to get out there and play as many minutes as I can. That all comes from performances like tonight." "He's a real physical, real competitive young man from a real small school right in San Antonio," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We've been giving him chances this year to get out on the floor and I think he's probably going to have an NBA career. He's done this several times, so we are real happy with him." Popovich also credited Duncan with not trying to force the issue. "They played a lot of zone in the second half and Timmy is an unselfish individual," Popovich said. "Rather than shoot bad shots, he's going to move it and trust his teammates. That's what he has to do for us to win." "They got very physical and didn't let me get my shot off, so I got my teammates involved," Duncan said. Tony Parker added 18 points for the Spurs, who have won three straight and four of five. San Antonio has won four straight in Seattle and five of six against the SuperSonics overall. Rashard Lewis led Seattle with 25 points and nine rebounds. Ray Allen had 22 points but was livid over the defensive approach of San Antonio defensive specialist Bruce Bowen. "Every time I got the ball and dribbled past him, he would elbow me on the side," Allen said. "It was (ticking) me off. Every time a referee sees something like that, he's got to call it and stop something like that. Tonight, I was at a point that I wanted to fight him. I wasn't thinking about playing basketball, I wanted to fight him. That's not good for this team." "They are just competitive," Popovich said. "Bruce wants to stop him every time and Ray wants to score every time. They are both big time competitors and consummate pros. It just got a little heated." Duncan was 6-of-9 for 12 points in the opening quarter as San Antonio led 28-20 after 12 minutes and never was headed. The Supersonics failed to come up with any answers for Duncan in the second quarter. Duncan finished with 14 rebounds and has 40 double-doubles this season. "You can't really play soft against him because as soon as he gets that position down in the post, it's easy for him to score," Seattle center Vitaly Potapenko said. "It's a very big challenge. He's an All-Star."
