Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Kept quiet for most of the final period, Tim Duncan resurfaced just in time to rescue the San Antonio Spurs. Duncan scored four of his 31 points in the final minute as the Spurs overcame a big fourth quarter from rookie Ben Gordon to post a 102-99 victory over the Chicago Bulls. After having its 16-game home winning streak snapped last week with a two-point loss to Memphis, San Antonio has won three straight games by a total of 11 points. "At the beginning of the season, everything came too easy for us," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "These kinds of games sort of get (the sense of urgency) back. You can be beat any time. You have to bring it every night." The Bulls trailed by as many as 17 points in the second half, but Gordon took over in the final period to spark the rally. After Tony Parker's jumper gave San Antonio a 90-83 edge with just over six minutes remaining, Gordon hit a layup, two free throws and converted a three-point play to even the score, 90-90, two minutes later. "I was happy with the way we battled back tonight," Bulls coach Scott Skiles said. "Our margin of error against a team like this is small. We tried to come in and steal this game, but we were not able to finish it." Parker and Tyson Chandler traded buckets before Gordon gave Chicago a 94-92 advantage with 2:04 on the clock and Manu Ginobili tied the game with a jumper on the other end. Antonio Davis was called for an offensive foul and - after a blown layup by Ginobili - missed a jumper to set the stage for Duncan, who nailed an open 18-footer to give the Spurs a 96-94 lead with 37 seconds to go. "He always hits big shots," Parker said of Duncan. "That's his job. He's our franchise player and that's what we expect him to do." Kirk Hinrich missed a jumper as the Bulls failed to score on the ensuing possession and Duncan, who scored 25 points through the first three quarters, all but sealed the victory with a pair of free throws. "It's a good experience to win a tight game down the stretch," said Duncan, a 66 percent free-throw shooter. "They made a run on us in the fourth quarter, but we just kept playing and we pulled it out." "We had our chances at the end, and I felt that the last two shots I took were going in but didn't fall," said Hinrich, who also missed after Duncan's free throws. Gordon scored 15 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter for the Bulls. It was his NBA-leading 17th double-digit final period. "Ben played a great game there in the fourth quarter," Skiles said. "Guys are always looking for Ben if he's open." Parker had 25 and eight assists and Ginobili added 19 points for the Spurs, who improved to 26-2 at home this season. "There's a reason they have the record they do," Skiles said. "You expect everyone on their team to be able to take and make shots that they did down the stretch tonight." Parker scored 12 points in the first half, which was capped by Duncan's layup at the buzzer that gave the Spurs a 55-46 lead at the break. Parker and Duncan provided all of the offense as San Antonio opened the second half with an 8-0 run to push the advantage to 63-46 before Othella Harrington scored seven of his 20 points as Chicago cut its deficit to 74-66 after 36 minutes.
