Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan had 31 points and 11 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Vancouver Grizzlies for the 10th straight time, 107-99.

Duncan has dominated the Grizzlies this season, averaging 35 points and 13.3 rebounds in three games. San Antonio has not lost to Vancouver since February 12, 1997.

The Spurs have won seven of their last 10 games and trail the Phoenix Suns by percentage points for fourth place in the Western Conference. They are 3 1/2 games behind first-place Utah in the Midwest Division.

"We're thrilled with the win," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "(Grizzlies coach) Lionel Hollins and his staff have done a tremendous job of bringing his team along and making them into an aggressive team that can win. They've proven themselves against other teams."

The Spurs did most of their damage in the third quarter when they outscored the Grizzlies, 30-16. San Antonio shot 65 percent (11-of-17) in the period while holding Vancouver to 27 percent (6-of-22).

"We overpowered them," Spurs center David Robinson said. "They played great, but you run out of weapons after a while. A lot of times at this time of the season, teams that aren't in the playoffs are relaxed and shoot the ball well and that's what they did."

Duncan scored 11 points in the quarter, including seven during a 17-4 spurt as the Spurs opened an 87-69 lead with 35 seconds left. David Robinson and Terry Porter added seven points apiece in the period.

"I thought we started of kind of slow, but we got back into it realy quick," Duncan said. "We did a great job on penetration and people really knocked down shots for us. We're a pretty slow starting team and we knew we had to come out in the third and make a push at it and not sit back into a hole."

Porter started for Mario Elie, who sat out with a sprained right ankle.

Michael Dickerson poured in 16 points in the first half for Vancouver, but was limited to just four over the final 24 minutes on 2-of-12 shooting. He was 0-of-6 from the field in the third quarter.

Porter scored 22 points and Robinson added 19 for the Spurs, who have won four of their last six road games and hope to close a perfect three-game trip Tuesday at Sacramento. San Antonio shot 58 percent (41-of-71) from the field and held Vancouver to 44 percent (36-of-81).

Mike Bibby scored 24 points and Shareef-Abdur-Rahim added 23 and 11 rebounds for Vancouver, which has dropped six of its last eight outings. Othella Harrington added 19 points.

"They had more energy than us in the third quarter and it showed," Bibby said. "They were scoring and we weren't. They outscored us by 14 and that's the game right there. They're always strong inside."

"We've got depth from a player perspective," Hollins said. "We just don't have a lot of scorers coming off the bench. You'd like to have one or two more guys that can come off the bench that can score for you."

The Grizzlies had their two-game home winning streak snapped. After a two-game road trip, they play the last game of the season at GM Place on Friday against Minnesota.
