Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- With the playoffs approaching, it's important for the San Antonio Spurs to see their leader on track. Tim Duncan scored 18 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter to propel the Spurs to their ninth consecutive win, an 88-79 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. "It just kind of happened," Duncan said of his fourth-quarter outburst. "I hit a couple of shots in a row and my teammates came back to me. It was a situational thing and I was just happy to hit some shots." San Antonio (55-25) moved within one game of Minnesota (56-24) for the best record in the Western Conference. The Spurs also moved one game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers (54-26) in the West standings. "We're going to finish the season on a high note," Duncan added. "We're trying to play as well as possible going to the playoffs. You don't want to lose one of these last two games and have some doubts in your mind. What position we finish in will be great for us. We want home court as long as possible, of course." Tony Parker tallied 14 points and handed out eight assists. Rasho Nesterovic and Bruce Bowen added 12 points apiece for the Spurs. "We knew coming in they had lost 12 in a row, so they were going to be motivated," Parker said. "They kicked butts on the boards and outhustled us in general. Fortunately, Tim took over in the fourth quarter and we were able to ride him to victory." Spurs coach Gregg Popovich felt lucky to get the win after seeing his team lose an early 11-point lead. "We dodged a bullet tonight," Popovich said. "We did not play well but we were fortunate to get out of here with a win. In the fourth quarter, we played Tim Duncan basketball and it really saved our fannies." Elton Brand led the Clippers with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Rookie Chris Kaman scored 14 points and Doug Overton added 12 as the Clippers dropped their 13th consecutive games, including eight straight at home. Duncan scored San Antonio's first 12 points of the fourth quarter. His eight-foot bank shot gave the Spurs the lead for good, 68-67, and started a string of eight straight points. He added a driving dunk, 19-foot jumper and another bank shot to give San Antonio a 74-67 lead with 7:03 left. "Tim is starting to feel more confident," Popovich said. "He was more explosive elevating than he has been since coming of the injured list. I was concerned about having to play him too much seeing as this was the front end of a back-to-back, but the Clippers played harder than us, so we needed to play Tim more than I would have liked." Brand had the best of the battle at forward for most of the night, except when it counted. "All you can do with Duncan is try and force him to make his teammates step up," Brand said. "Tonight, when he got the ball in his hands he just attacked, especially in the fourth quarter. We'd played him pretty well up to that point. He's just very hard to stop. He's been MVP twice and has two rings. And you can see why. He really played well." San Antonio made nine of its first 11 shots for an early 20-9 lead. The Spurs settled for a 46-42 halftime edge.
