GAME RECAP

Rookie Tim Duncan and David Robinson overpowered Chris Webber and Juwan Howard and the San Antonio Spurs scored 11 of the last 13 points in an 89-79 victory over the Washington Wizards, their third straight win.

Duncan had 28 points and 17 rebounds and Robinson added 22 and 14 to offset Webber and Howard, who combined for 48 points but split just 12 rebounds as the Wizards dropped their second straight home game.

"I'm not rebounding well right now, I need to be more consistent," Duncan said. "I'm starting to get in a groove though, and I'm starting to concentrate on the little things like defense. We were making our jumpers tonight, especially holding them off in the end."

"Tim made all the shots tonight, I just helped out," Robinson said. "We settled into a rhythm going down the stretch. This wasn't the prettiest game and we need to step it up, especially in the second half. We're not quite there, being with the Utahs and Seattles of the league."

Robinson made four free throws in the game-clinching run, which Duncan started with a slam that gave the Spurs an 80-77 edge with 2:55 remaining. Boosted by its tandem of seven-footers, San Antonio held Washington to 13 points and no free throws in the final period.

"We perservered," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It probably wasn't the prettiest game technically. I don't think that either team played great tonight. I think the whole team contributed tonight, especially defensively down the stretch. We're on the right path, but we're not quite there yet."

Chuck Person scored five of his 14 points in the pivotal burst for the Spurs, who have won seven of their last eight games, allowing under 80 points per contest.

Webber scored 27 points and Howard added 21. Rod Strickland had 16 points and 12 assists for the Wizards, who went scoreless in the last two minutes and dropped to 11-3 at the new MCI Center.

"The whole team was off tonight. Not one or two guys, the whole team," Webber said. "It was a very, very bad shooting night. I definitely didn't think that we would only have 20 wins at this point. We need to start being consistent."

A free throw by Duncan gave the Spurs a 78-70 lead with 6:29 to go before the Wizards rallied. A three-pointer by Webber and a pair of jumpers by Howard cut the deficit to 78-77 with 3:16 to play.

But Duncan dunked and Person made a layup to extend the lead to 82-77 with 2:11 left. Strickland scored Washington's final points 11 seconds later, but Robinson made a pair of foul shots at 1:47 and 1:03 and Person sealed it with a 30-footer with 32 seconds to go.

"Defensively, we just didn't get it done," Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "We did not take advantage of our second-chance opportunities. They (Robinson and Duncan) were good tonight, real good."

Avery Johnson contributed 12 points and seven assists for the Spurs, who shot 48 percent (34-of-71) from the field and held a 47-39 edge on the glass. San Antonio improved to 10-9 on the road.

"We took one thing away and then gave up something else, but if that's what it takes to win games, that's what we'll do," said Duncan.

Terry Davis grabbed 12 rebounds and Webber blocked five shots for the Wizards, who shot just 36 percent (30-of-83) and made 17-of-20 free throws. Tracy Murray, who averages 13.1 points off the bench, was held scoreless on 0-of-4 shooting.

"We've had three games in a row where we haven't shot 40 percent from the field," Bickerstaff said. "It's amazing that you're in a ballgame when you're only shooting 36 percent."

Duncan scored 17 points and Johnson all of his 12 in the first half as San Antonio grabbed a 52-49 lead. Robinson scored nine points in the third quarter, including a 14-footer that gave the Spurs the lead for good at 63-62 with 2:42 remaining, and his 25th career three-pointer and first in four attempts this season closed the quarter and opened a 71-66 advantage.

After a jumper by Howard opened the fourth quarter, a slam and two free throws by Monty Williams around a jumper by Duncan gave San Antonio a 77-68 lead with 7:41 to go.
