GAME RECAP

Rookie Tim Duncan had 28 points and 16 rebounds and David Robinson added 24 and seven to lead the San Antonio Spurs to their 11th straight home win, a 109-67 romp over the Sacramento Kings, who had a season-high four-game winning streak stopped.

Duncan shot 12-of-18 from the field and played just three minutes in the fourth period after playing the entire first three quarters. The Spurs outscored the Kings by 42 points after the final three periods. San Antonio dominated inside, outscoring the Kings in the paint, 62-36, and outrebounding them, 43-28.

"We came out with real good energy tonight," Duncan said. "We had a lot of players with live bodies tonight step out onto the floor. Jaren (Jackson) and Reggie (Geary) gave us some energy and tonight we got on top of them and never let them up. I felt good tonight, I just never got tired and things kept rolling for me. I just felt real good tonight."

It was the worst loss for the Kings since a franchise-record 153-91 setback at Golden State on November 2nd, 1991. It was the biggest win for the Spurs since a 111-62 win over Vancouver on November 8th, 1995.

Chuck Person grabbed nine rebounds and Avery Johnson handed out 11 assists for San Antonio, which has snapped a three-game losing streak against Sacramento and won for the sixth time in its last seven games overall.

Corliss Williamson scored 17 points and Michael Stewart added 10 for the Kings, who were looking to win five straight games for the first time since December 19th-28th, 1996. Mitch Richmond, who entered the game averaging 22.7 points, was limited to eight points as he shot just 2-for-14.

"Defensively we were trying to help on everyone tonight," said Richmond, who had his worst scoring performance since he was held to four points in a 95-66 loss to the Detroit Pistons on December 1st, 1996.

"For the first four of five minutes we played well," he added. "Then Duncan and Robinson got going and everything broke down. Their guys got in the lane and didn't move. David stayed right in the paint and didn't move. They clogged it up tonight. I thought I had some good looks but I couldn't knock them down. Even my patented shots didnt seem to be falling tonight."

Williamson also pointed to San Antonio's huge edge in height.

"All that size makes a difference," said Williamson about the Spurs. "It's like choose your poison with this team. At least that's how it was tonight. It didn't seem like much of a war in the paint. They were able to establish their inside game. We started off strong with things going our way and we tried not to come downcourt and take quick shots. But their height makes that difficult."

Billy Owens grabbed 11 rebounds for the Kings, who were limited to the third-lowest point total in the history of the Kansas City/Sacramento era. Sacramento shot just 34.5 percent (29-for-84) from the field, including 0-for-9 from three-point range.

"We win a a lot more games when were able to hold opponents under 40 percent shooting and getting our defense back really playing well tonight is a good way to head into the road trip," said Duncan referring to a five-game trip that begins against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday.

Richmond made a pair of free throws to give the Kings their last lead, 31-30, with 9:56 left in the second quarter. Duncan's tip-in gave the Spurs a 32-30 edge with 9:11 remaining in the second.

Geary, who had seven points and four assists, followed with a three-pointer and capped a 13-2 burst with a jumper for a 43-33 advantage with 5:29 to play in the first half. Duncan had 19 points and Robinson added 17 as the Spurs held a 56-41 advantage at halftime.

"Our energy level was better tonight," said Robinson. "We talked before the game about responding to the challenge and we really did that tonight. Defense was a key tonight, we were really able to stop them and frustrate them. They weren't able to get anything easy and we didn't let the guys who can hurt you do that all game."

Robinson's dunk cappped a 7-0 burst and brought the Spurs lead to 64-43 with 8:07 left in the third quarter. Duncan capped another 7-0 surge with a five-footer for a 73-47 advantage with 4:39 to go in the third. The Spurs took a 42-point lead for the first time when Carl Herrera sank a six-footer with 61 seconds remaining.

Sacramento shot just 25 percent (10-for-40) from the field over the middle two periods and was outscored, 56-26.
