Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The San Antonio Spurs set the stage for a pivotal homestand this weekend by taking care of business in Vancouver.

Tim Duncan scored 19 points and David Robinson added 17 as San Antonio rebounded from Tuesday's overtime loss in Sacramento to rout the lowly Grizzlies, 99-72, and keep alive its hopes of capturing home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Spurs won for the 23rd time in 28 games and trail Utah by 1 1/2 games for the league's best record. San Antonio is one game behind Portland, which was beaten by the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. The Spurs have two games remaining against the Trail Blazers.

"I was real pleased that we competed for 48 minutes," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "Utah competes for 48 minutes game in and game out and that's what we've been trying to do all year. It's very important for us to get to that point."

San Antonio hosts Portland on Saturday and Utah on Sunday before closing the regular season at Portland and Golden State.

The Spurs dominated Vancounver in transition, outscoring the Grizzlies in fastbreak points, 22-2.

"That's really big for us," Duncan said. "We're trying to get up the floor a little more. It definitely gave us a lot easier baskets tonight. We had the opportunity to run. Their defense seemed to open up and we were able to do the things we wanted."

The Spurs had a seven-game winning streak snapped in Sacramento but bounced back in impressive fashion against the league's worst team. They allowed only 28 points in the first half, cruising to a 22-point halftime lead.

San Antonio continued to pour it on in the second half, opening a 72-44 lead on Duncan's jumper with 1:27 remaining in the third quarter. The Spurs built their biggest lead at 99-70 on Jaren Jackson's 3-pointer with 12 seconds remaining.

"We got a lot of transition buckets against them last time, so tonight we wanted to press those things," Robinson said. "We did a nice job early. There was a period where we stopped running, but we had built a nice lead and the game seemed to go from there."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Tony Massenburg each had 12 points for the Grizzlies, who were held one point below their previous low of 73 against Portland on March 8. Vancouver has dropped four straight and 10 of its last 11.

"I would take most teams (to play) over San Antonio because when both of those big dudes are in there the paint is all clogged up," Abdur-Rahim said. "They're a really tough team to beat and they always beat us in transition."

The Grizzlies' starting rookie backcourt of Felipe Lopez and Mike Bibby were a combined 5-of-23 from the field. Bibby was held scoreless, going 0-of-8 from the field and 0-of-2 from the line. Lopez finished with 11 points while DeJuan Wheat added 10 off the bench.

"We tried to do a few different things in the third to score some points and they responded to the challenge," Massenburg said. "Then we seemed to die down and continued to just go through the motions."

San Antonio shot 57 percent (35-of-62) from the field while holding Vancouver to just 35 percent (28-of-80). Duncan, who grabbed 10 rebounds, and Robinson did not play in the fourth quarter.

Mario Elie and Jackson had 15 points apiece for the Spurs, who improved to 11-3 all-time against the Grizzlies, including a 7-1 mark in Vancouver.

The Grizzlies stayed closed for 1 1/2 quarters, pulling within 32-26 on Lopez's layup with 5:55 remaining. But San Antonio finished the half with an 18-2 spurt, grabbing a 50-28 lead on Malik Rose's layup with a tenth of a second left.

"I'm extremely disappointed in our performance tonight," Vancouver coach Brian Hill said. "I don't think we came out aggresively at all. It led to a lot of turnovers and easy baskets. Tonight was really a setback."

In the second half, the Grizzlies got no closer than 75-54 on Pete Chilcutt's basket with 9:46 remaining. Vancouver remained 1 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Clippers as the league's worst team.
