Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan had 29 points and 12 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs recorded their longest winning streak in three years with a 121-109 victory over the Sacramento Kings, notching their best offensive effort of the season.

All five starters scored 17 points or more for the Spurs, whose eight-game winning streak is the their longest since a 17-game run from February 29-March 31, 1996.

"The guys are really playing well, they're starting to figure each other out," said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "It's taken time to get them all comfortable with each other, but we're really starting to come around."

Avery Johnson collected 17 points and a season-high 15 assists to help San Antonio post its highest point total since a 124-115 win at Vancouver on December 30, 1997. Duncan, who also had four blocks before fouling out, hit 13-of-16 from the field and the Spurs shot an astounding 61 percent (49-of-80).

"Obviously, we just didn't defend and San Antonio played well," said Kings coach Rick Adelman. "You let a team shoot 61 percent from the floor, and it's gonna be hard to win. We just didn't do enough at the defensive end. Give San Antonio credit, they came out ready to play."

Mario Elie scored 23 points, including a three-point play that closed a key 8-0 spurt in the fourth quarter that gave San Antonio a 106-93 lead with 5:53 remaining.

Duncan capped his impressive performance by draining the first 3-pointer of his career, hitting from the left corner as the shot clock expired. After missing all 11 of his previous attempts from beyond the arc, his 12th gave the Spurs a 121-106 cushion with 42 seconds to play.

"I got some easy looks at the basket and tonight was just one of those nights where most of them went down for me," Duncan said. "So I guess I was pretty lucky, and it was all good."

Vlade Divac had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Chris Webber added 15 and 14 for the Kings, who hit 40 percent (36-90) from the floor. Webber shot a dismal 7-of-24.

While Sean Elliott scored 19 points for the Spurs, David Robinson had a strong all-around game with 18 points, seven assists, five rebounds, four steals and three blocks.

San Antonio was in front by as many as 21 points in the third quarter but saw the lead shrink to 92-88 early in the fourth after the Kings' Vernon Maxwell hit a 3-pointer and free throw. The margin was 98-93 after a dunk by Lawrence Funderburke with 8:39 left, but the Spurs reeled off eight straight points to put the game out of reach.

Robinson hit a driving layup off a feed from Johnson and then passed to Elie for a lay-in. After a foul shot by Duncan, Elie took a pass from Johnson before making a layup. He was fouled on the play by rookie Jason Williams and sank the free throw.

"It would have been hard losing our winning streak by losing a 21-point lead, which we almost did tonight," Robinson said. "But we responded really well."

Sacramento got no closer than eight points the rest of the way, suffering its sixth straight defeat in this series and losing to the Spurs by double digits for the second time this season.

The Kings had seven players score in double figures for the second straight game, but failed miserably on the defensive end as they tried to post their third straight win. Maxwell and Corliss Williamson scored 16 points apiece, Funderburke had 15 and 10 boards, Tariq Abdul-Wahad contributed 14 points and Williams chipped in 11 and 10 assists.

"We seem to start out slow, but we fight our way back in the game in the second half," Williams said. "I guess we didn't fight enough because we came up short."

Clinging to a 38-33 lead early in the second period, San Antonio took command with a 14-3 burst. Robinson highlighted the run with a three-point play, Duncan contributed a dunk and Elie's slam capped it with 5:48 remaining, building a 52-36 advantage.

"He's got a lot of stuff down there in the post, and now most of our offense is geared toward him," Robinson said of Duncan. "Both of us didn't have to score 27 points tonight. So if he can do it, great, and I can focus on the things I do best."

Sacramento cut it to 63-53 by halftime before watching San Antonio use a 16-4 run midway through the third to grab its largest lead. Elliott and Elie each had six points and Duncan added four, with Johnson feeding Elie for a lay-in to create an 85-64 cushion with 5:29 left.

But the Spurs went cold the rest of the period as the Kings closed within 92-84 by the end of the third. Abdul-Wahad scored 11 points in Sacramento's quarter-ending 20-7 run.

"Give our guys credit too, they came back from a 21-point deficit in the third and got it to four," Adelman added. "But we just didn't have enough to sustain it."
