Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The defending world champion San Antonio Spurs needed one quarter to prove they had recovered from their first loss of the season.

The Spurs humiliated the winless Golden State Warriors in the first quarter, racing to a 25-point lead before cruising to a 118-89 victory.

Eight of the 10 players available to San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich scored as the Spurs (4-1) built a 34-9 lead and never looked back.

"This group takes losses like they did last year -- not very well," Popovich said. "It's always scary when you go up so many points early. Teams usually come back, but we kept hammering."

Malik Rose scored a season-high 21 points off the bench and Tim Duncan finished with 19 and 11 rebounds in only 22 minutes for the Spurs, who bounced back from Sunday's heartbreaking 77-74 setback at Phoenix by shooting 60 percent (15-of-25) in the opening quarter.

"It's good to get off to a good start like that, especially coming off that Phoenix loss," Rose said. "It really gets our confidence going and gets us started on a good game."

San Antonio forced 10 turnovers and limited Golden State to a dreadful 4-of-21 shooting performance during the period.

The Warriors never led but were within 6-4 just under two minutes in before San Antonio went on a 28-5 run to close the quarter.

Golden State, which has looked progressively worse in each of its four losses, has been outscored by an average of 21.7 points per game. Tony Farmer scored a career-high 19 points to lead the Warriors.

"It's tough because personal achievements aren't satisfying," Farmer said. "You can't take the personal achievements. By far, this was my best NBA game. Look at Wilt Chamberlain. He scored 35 to 40 points a night. I think he'd trade a few rings if he just scored 10 points."

Mario Elie and Samaki Walker collected 13 points apiece for the Spurs, who have won the last four meetings with Golden State.

"I thought the team came out focused and did a good job when we had them down," Elie said. "When we lose a game, guys are (ticked) off around here. It's not hard to stay focused, especially after you lose a game we should have won."

David Robinson, Avery Johnson and Terry Porter each had 10 points for San Antonio, which shot 53 percent (47-of-88) and held a 52-48 advantage on the boards.

Antawn Jamison was the lone Golden State starter in double figures with 10 points on 5-of-14 shooting. Chris Mills came off the bench and scored 11 points for the Warriors, who opened 0-5 last season before recovering for a surprising 21-29 mark.

"It's getting frustrating and frustrating each day," Jamison said. "We're not going to answer any questions until we go out and answer them on the court. We haven't found any kind of chemistry. Everything you can say about the game, we're not doing it."

"In order for us to do well, we have to do well on the defensive end," Mills added. "It feels so bad this year so far because we're not playing well. Last year, we started 0-5 but were in every game."

Things got ugly in a hurry after Jamison made a driving layup to cut the deficit to 6-4.

Elie had a layup, Duncan hit a nine-foot hook shot and Robinson made 1-of-2 from the line before Donyell Marshall responded with a short jumper to make it 11-6 with 8:10 left in the first quarter.

Chucky Brown scored the next six points, including a 17-footer that gave San Antonio a 17-6 cushion with 6:37 left. Mookie Blaylock attempted to turn the tide with a 21-footer for the Warriors, but Walker capped an 8-0 run with a 13-footer that made it 25-8 with 3:34 remaining in the period.

Rose had a pair of baskets, Walker a follow shot and Porter provided the final insult of the quarter by draining a 3-pointer to extend the margin to 34-9.
