Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Clippers picked a bad place to avoid matching their season-high losing streak.

Tim Duncan and David Robinson combined to dominate the interior and the San Antonio Spurs posted their 18th win in 19 home meetings with Los Angeles, 105-82, extending the floundering Clippers' skid to nine games.

Los Angeles has lost nine straight games in the series with San Antonio but stayed within striking distance tonight before the Spurs blew open the game with a 29-6 run spanning the third and fourth quarters for their third win against the Clippers this season.

Duncan scored nine of his 24 points during the Spurs' extended run and Robinson had 20 of his 22 over the first three periods. The two combined to grab 26 rebounds as San Antonio held a commanding 54-36 advantage on the boards.

"The third quarter has been a key quarter for us," Robinson said. "Last year we played well in the third quarter. After halftime it's good to come out and make a run to set the tone. This year we had two points. One, the first quarter was a weakness and two, the third quarter is the key. It sets up the fourth quarter."

"When you play (Duncan and Robinson) straight up, 1-on-1, they are going to get their shots and they are going to get their points," Los Angeles guard Eric Murdock said. "Their size makes it tough. You have to throw a lot of different looks at them."

Derek Anderson scored 22 points and rookie Lamar Odom added 16 for the Clippers, whose only win in San Antonio since a 115-103 victory in the HemisFair Arena on March 19, 1989, came here on November 20, 1996.

Los Angeles also lost nine in a row from November 26-December 11.

"This team has a fragile balance," Clippers coach Chris Ford said. "This has been the story all year long. We play well for stretches and then a costly turnover or taking a bad shot causes it to snowball. We don't have a Tim Duncan to rely on. All five guys have to execute and make the extra pass."

Michael Olowokandi and Murdock had 10 points apiece for the Clippers, who shot 41 percent (35-of-85) and managed just 17 points in the third quarter, 10 by Odom.

"We played well for a half," Odom said. "We were really into the game until we had a few lapses. With Tim Duncan and David Robinson, this team is going to get the shots they want. They just have so many options."

Antonio Daniels scored a season-high 11 points off the bench and and Avery Johnson added 10 for the Spurs, who shot 47 percent (38-of-81) and forced 13 turnovers.

"We concentrated good, but we had lulls," Johnson said. "They are an NBA team, though. They have a right to make a run. A lot of people come in here and think like we think sometimes that this should be a blowout. But they played hard."

Odom dunked and Anderson made a jumper to pull the Clippers within 65-63 with 5:55 remaining in the third quarter. But Jerome Kersey responded with a 21-footer, Duncan made a short jumper and dunked and Robinson had a follow shot to stretch the lead to 10 and the rout was on.

Odom and Anderson again answered with consecutive baskets but Duncan and Robinson each made a free throw and Avery's driving layup made it 77-67 entering the fourth quarter.

Duncan hit two free throws and Robinson drained a 15-footer to open a 14-point bulge to open the fourth quarter. Eric Piatkowski's running jumper with 8:52 to play shaved the deficit to 85-73 before the Spurs reeled off the next 11 points to open a 96-73 cushion with 6:15 left.

Felton Spencer's layup with 1:55 left gave San Antonio its biggest lead, 104-80.

The Spurs hold a 74-24 lead in the all-time series.
