Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- In order to beat the Utah Jazz for the 17th consecutive time, the San Antonio Spurs needed a big lift off the bench. It came in the unlikely form of Devin Brown. Brown scored six of his career-high 19 points in the pivotal fourth quarter as the Spurs toppled the Jazz, 94-81, for their fifth straight win. A second-year reserve guard averaging just 3.6 points and 10.3 minutes per game, Brown played 28 minutes, also a career high. The San Antonio native and Texas-San Antonio alumnus made 8-of-13 shots and added seven rebounds and four assists. With his mother and sister sitting in the Delta Center crowd, Brown was the unlikely star, more than making up for relatively quiet nights from Tim Duncan and Tony Parker. "It feels good, especially on the road in an environment like this, to come out and play well. It's pretty exciting," Brown said. "I think it does a lot for my confidence and for the coaching staff having confidence in me." Whenever the Jazz threatened and the Spurs needed a spark, Brown was there to provide it. When Jazz guard Gordon Giricek cut the deficit to 60-58 with 3:38 to play in the third quarter, Brown answered with a mid-range jumper. Less than a minute later, he sank a 19-footer to open a six-point lead. And with time winding down in the period, Brown nailed a 20-foot jumper to give the Spurs an eight-point cushion. During the final quarter, Brown shut down the hot-handed Giricek, who had scored 22 points through the first three quarters. Late in the game, Brown followed a missed 3-pointer by Parker with an emphatic dunk, part of a 9-1 run. "He did a great job for us tonight," said Duncan, who had 18 points and 10 rebounds. "He did a great job defensively, chasing those guys around. He did a great job containing (Giricek). On the offensive end, he went to the glass, got some rebounds and made that big finish for us that I think took the air out of them." San Antonio has won eight straight visits to the Delta Center and has not lost to Utah anywhere since a 93-90 road setback on February 6, 2000. San Antonio (51-25) remained 1 1/2 games behind first-place Minnesota in the Midwest Division with six to play. Utah (39-37) fell one-half game behind Portland (39-36) and Denver (40-37) in the race for the final Western Conference playoff spot. "This team, it didn't make any difference what we tried to do, they made it difficult for us," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "We started feeling sorry for ourselves when we missed a few layups and they kind of took us out of the ballgame. It was one of those games that would have been difficult for us to win, the way we played." Hedo Turkoglu and reserve Manu Ginobili scored 15 points each for the Spurs, whose bench outscored Utah's reserves, 44-24. "We went out there knowing they were going to play hard and we had to match them," Brown said. "The guys on the bench were supposed to come in and give the team a lift, and that's what we did. I think we're starting to get into championship shape."
