Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan's big dunk gave the San Antonio Spurs a big win.

Duncan had a thunderous dunk over a helpless Juwan Howard to tie the game with 2.2 seconds left in regulation and triggered a 10-0 run in overtime as the Spurs rallied for a 106-99 victory over the Washington Wizards.

With the Spurs trailing 95-93, Duncan started at the left elbow and dribbled right past Howard for a huge lefthanded slam that tied the game.

"I think he was coming toward me when I caught the ball, and I pulled it quick and went so that his momentum was going the other way," Duncan said. "By the time I got by him, he didn't want to foul me and give up the three-point play."

Duncan, who had 23 points and nine rebounds, again erased a two-point deficit with a banker with 2:55 to go, starting the decisive run. Mario Elie made a 3-pointer, David Robinson slammed off an alley-oop pass from Duncan.

"We haven't done that in a little while," Robinson said. "It's nice to have Tim back in the game. Tim was flowing tonight. He shot the ball well. He's starting to get his touch back. It's a lot more fun when both of us are in there rolling and we can get something going."

"That was a great call by coach," Duncan said. "He called the play and they played it wrong. Dave made a great move to the basket and I just put it up there for him. He's as athletic as anything. You just put it up there and he'll go get it for you."

Antonio Daniels, who missed an easy follow of an errant jumper by Elie with 27 seconds remaining in regulation, redeemed himself with a steal of a crosscourt pass by Howard with 1:14 left in overtime. Daniels sealed it with a 3-pointer for a 105-97 lead with 54 seconds to play.

Robinson shook off a second-quarter shoulder injury to collect 21 points and 11 boards and Avery Johnson scored 18 points for the Spurs, who avenged a 99-89 home loss to Washington on December 11.

Howard scored 29 points on 14-for-22 shooting and grabbed 12 rebounds for the Wizards, who were denied their third straight win, which would have matched a season high.

Chris Whitney gave Washington a 94-91 lead on a pair of free throws with 10 seconds remaining in regulation but Robinson answered with a layup, pulling San Antonio to 94-93 with 6.2 ticks left.

Wizards guard Rod Strickland hit the second of two free throws for a 95-93 lead with five seconds left, setting the stage for Duncan's drive past Howard.

"I was one of the options," said Duncan, who made 10-for-13 shots and added four blocks. "Hearing from Mario, I was the only option out there. It feels good that he came to me at that point in the game. I just got the chance to pull it through and go to the rim. Luckily enough, I got past him."

Strickland posted his 19th double-double with 13 points and 13 assists. He passed Spurs guard Terry Porter for third among active players with 6,659 career assists, good for 11th on the all-time list.

Mitch Richmond scored 22 points and Gerard King, making his eighth consecutive start at forward, added 11, eight rebounds and two blocks for the Wizards.

Howard's jumper with 10:40 left in regulation gave Washington a 77-70 lead before the Spurs showed the MCI Center crowd of 16,409 what NBA champions are made of.

"Whew, boy, that was a tough game," said Robinson, who hurt his shoulder in the second quarter. "We went through a long stretch there where we were real flat and couldn't anything to go in, and they were making a good run at us. They did a nice job and made it tough for us."

Daniels scored 13 points and Samaki Walker added 12 for the Spurs, who shot 52.5 percent (42-of-80) and held a 44-40 edge on the glass but committed 22 turnovers. The Wizards shot 44 percent (39-of-88).
