Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs pushed around the suddenly struggling Sacramento Kings. Duncan had 30 points and 14 rebounds as the Spurs won their eighth straight season opener, muscling their way to a 101-85 victory over the Kings. Guard Manu Ginobili had 24 points and nine rebounds for San Antonio, which had four players with at least nine boards as it pounded Sacramento on the glass, 54-36. Rasho Nesterovic grabbed 12 rebounds in 27 minutes and reserve Malik Rose swept nine in 18 minutes. "It was a good start to the new season," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We rebounded well. The defense was pretty good. It was better than fair." Duncan was his usual unstoppable self as he made 11-of-17 shots. He helped the Spurs enjoy a 50-32 advantage in points in the paint and 26-6 in second-chance points. The Spurs trailed midway through the second quarter until Duncan made three straight hoops to tie it, 39-39, with 4:27 to go. His jumper gave San Antonio the lead for good at 43-41 and triggered an 11-4 surge that closed the half. After beating up the Kings inside, the Spurs took their attack outside with a flurry of 3-pointers in the final period. Free agent signee Brent Barry sank three and Ginobili made two as San Antonio extended its lead to 21 points. "I just seemed like we ran into a wall in the fourth quarter," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We were sluggish in the fourth and got buried. We were better in a lot of areas but we didn't maintain that through the whole game." Barry scored 16 points off the bench for the Spurs, who limited the Kings to 40.5 percent shooting (32-of-79). "Brent is going to be an important member of the rotation for a lot of reasons," Popovich said. "He can shoot the ball, but I don't think people understand what kind of basketball player he is. He's a smart player. His basketball quotient is high." "I am not surprised that we played so well," said Spurs guard Tony Parker, who scored 10 points. "We were ready to play and we were able to play our style of game. It has been a long time since we played and it feels good to get back out there." Mike Bibby scored 23 points and Chris Webber added 18 for Sacramento, which has looked lethargic in a pair of losses on consecutive nights. Things do not get easier as the Kings complete the "Texas Triangle" with a trip to Houston on Saturday. They have not lost three in a row since January 24-28, 2003. "Tonight was a tough ending," Webber said. "So far we have had a tough schedule but we have to keep rolling with the punches. We just missed a lot of shots tonight." The Kings jumped to a 9-2 lead but were caught by the end of the first quarter. They rebuilt the lead before Duncan caught fire in the second period. Sacramento trailed, 76-67, entering the final period and never got any closer. After Barry's 3-pointer made it 93-72 with 5:13 left, the Kings rattled off 11 straight points before Ginobili and Barry sank consecutive 3-pointers. "They want each other to do well," Popovich said. "An indication of that is how they share and move the ball."
