Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Even without Tim Duncan, the San Antonio Spurs continued their home dominance against the Houston Rockets. Manu Ginobili and Brent Barry spearheaded a pivotal fourth-quarter run, helping the Spurs extend their home winning streak to five games with an 83-70 victory over the Houston Rockets. "We're in a situation where nobody feels sorry for the Spurs," Barry said. "We have Tim out and Devin (Brown) hurt and guys sick, but guys have to step up and we did that tonight. The season doesn't stop when guys are out, and you have to be mentally strong." The Spurs, who own the best home record in the league (33-3), have not lost to Houston in San Antonio since April 20, 1997 - a span of 15 games. San Antonio appeared headed to a third loss in four games since two-time MVP Duncan went on the injured list Monday with an ankle injury, trailing 60-55 with 10:29 to go on the heels of a 12-3 run by the Rockets. But Ginobili made a pair of clutch steals and Barry hit three 3-pointers during a 21-2 fourth-quarter run that gave San Antonio control down the stretch. "He was fantastic tonight," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of Ginobili. "He's a driven player. Anything he can do to win a game he will. His steals were important to us, especially the one down the stretch, but on both ends of the court, he's a special player." Barry's first 3-pointer of the spurt tied the score at 60-60 with 8:07 remaining. Moments later, Ginobili picked Yao Ming's pocket on the defensive end and converted two free throws to give San Antonio a 62-60 lead. Ginobili, who had 18 points and four assists, victimized star guard Tracy McGrady for one of his five steals before driving past Barry's older brother Jon for a layup that yielded a 69-62 advantage with 5:56 remaining. "We did a great job defensively," Ginobili said. "We really tried to contain T-Mac (McGrady). ... We were everywhere tonight. We hit a lot of open shots and it was a really good fourth quarter for us. We shared the ball really well today." Brent Barry, who scored nine of his 17 points off the bench in the fourth quarter, nailed his third 3-pointer of the run with 4:49 left to increase the lead to 74-62. Bruce Bowen's 3-pointer with 2:04 to go gave San Antonio its largest advantage at 81-64. Ginobili, who scored 23 points in a 111-95 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, has returned to his familiar form after being hampered by a groin injury earlier this month. After missing time with the injury, he had managed just 31 points combined in his first three games back. "I'm feeling better," Ginobili said. "I started to get a little tired the last three or four minutes of the game. I felt out of rhythm a little, but it is starting to come back. Tonight we had more fire, aggressiveness and desire. That was great to see, and hopefully we keep that up." McGrady, who was playing despite a strained right hip suffered in Friday's 81-68 victory over the New Orleans, scored just two of his 26 points in the final period, missing his last six shots. "I wasn't holding back because I wanted to, I had no choice," said McGrady, who still managed to eclipse his season average of 25.1 points. "I didn't feel as quick as I wanted to today. I dealt with this kind of injury on the other side earlier this season, so I know how to play through it." McGrady led all scorers with 16 first-half points on 6-of-11 shooting, playing 21 minutes. He hit a pair of free throws with 3.1 seconds left in the second quarter to cap a 15-6 run and bring Houston within 39-36 at the break. McGrady and Yao, who finished with 18 points, combined to score all but 10 of the Rockets' points in the first 24 minutes. No other player reached double figures as Houston recorded its lowest scoring output of the season. "It was a great effort," Popovich said. "It was a really nice team effort. We really played outstanding defense. Our team should be proud." After losing the first two games of the season series, San Antonio battled back with a 99-81 triumph here on February 23 before salvaging the split Sunday. The Spurs put together a late 14-3 run to seal last month's triumph. "The Spurs played well today," Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "We need to get tougher. This is the second time we have been here and cracked in the last seven or eight minutes in the game." San Antonio scored the first four points and led virtually throughout, trailing for under four minutes. Houston took its first lead at 54-52 on a layup by Bob Sura with 32 seconds left in the third quarter but trailed for the final 7:45.
