Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan capped a largely frustrating night with a highly satisfying shot. Duncan nailed a buzzer-beating jumper from just beyond the foul line to help the San Antonio Spurs defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 94-92. Duncan missed his first seven shots and, amid constant foul trouble, had just 10 points through three quarters. But he scored 10 points in the final period, including six during a 16-6 run that Tony Parker capped with a layup that gave the Spurs a 91-85 lead with 89 seconds remaining. "(Tim) rebounded and competed, and with all the foul trouble, people are usually taken out of games, and you never get back in the flow," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "That's why he's such a great player." The Spurs' lead was 92-87 after Manu Ginobili split a pair of free throws with 33 seconds left, but Duncan inadvertently tipped in an airballed 3-pointer by Jeff McInnis with just under 20 seconds left. "That should have been a two," Popovich said. "The ball was below the rim and Timmy went to get it and tipped it in." Popovich moments later appeared to have received a clarification when he said the officials "thought it still had a chance to hit the rim." "That was retarded," Duncan said. "It was an airball. I was trying to pull it in and it just hit my finger tips and went in. I think it should have been a two." Ginobili missed a pair from the line with 19 seconds to play and, after a timeout, LeBron James found Zydrunas Ilgauskas under the hoop for an uncontested dunk that tied the game, 92-92, with 14.2 seconds to go. After Spurs called timeout, Parker dribbled near the top of the key until the clock fell under five seconds, then dribbled to his right. Ilgauskas came over to help McInnis defend Parker, who quickly passed the ball to a wide-open Duncan, and the All-Star forward calmly drained the jumper as time expired. "I had that shot all game, and Tony made a great move to draw both defenders," Duncan said. "I actually thought he was going to shoot it. He held it there for so long in the air, I thought he had a great look at it. He threw it off late, and I had enough time to gather myself and take the shot comfortably. "We've run that play a billion times. I think Pop realized they would stay with Tony. There's nothing like being prepared for something before it happens. I wasn't going to rush the shot." Duncan, who also grabbed 11 rebounds, made nine of his final 10 shots. Parker collected 19 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds and Ginobili added 17 points for the Spurs, who avoided their third losing streak of the season. "(San Antonio) has the best record in the whole league," James said of the 43-13 Spurs. "We just need to approach every team like they are the best team in the league." Ilgauskas scored 26 points and fellow All-Star James added 20, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Cavaliers, who absorbed their first three-game losing streak since beginning the season 0-3. "We are in a slump right now," McInnis said. "We just have to keep fighting to try to get out of it." "I'm not concerned," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "People get spoiled when we're playing well, but we battled a championship down to the wire."
