Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Even when facing Tim Duncan, the Portland Trail Blazers have done pretty well against the San Antonio Spurs. Without Duncan, it was no contest.

Duncan sat out with slightly torn cartilage in his left knee and the Spurs put up no fight in a 93-77 loss to the Trail Blazers, who got 27 points from Rasheed Wallace.

Duncan suffered the injury in Tuesday's overtime victory at Sacramento. He played the rest of that game but underwent an MRI this morning that revealed the tear.

"Tim is game to game," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He's doubtful for Saturday (against Utah). I'm going to be conservative with him. We'll just see how it goes."

Wallace was the primary defender when the Blazers limited Duncan to nine points on January 19 and 12 points just 10 days later. With the superstar forward on the sidelines, Wallace ran wild on the offensive end, making 12-of-18 shots.

"Rasheed Wallace, there's something about him and the Alamodome," Spurs guard Mario Elie said. "Whenever he is here, he just lights it up. He got it going early."

Wallace also grabbed eight rebounds and received his record 37th technical foul of the season. He led a dominant performance by Portland's big men as forward Brian Grant and center Arvydas Sabonis scored 13 points each.

The Spurs (50-29) and have almost no chance of catching the Utah Jazz for the Midwest Division title. San Antonio fell 1 1/2 games behind fourth-place Phoenix in the Western Conference and is just 1 1/2 games in front of sixth-place Minnesota.

If the Spurs finish behind Minnesota, they would face Portland (57-22) in the first round in a rematch of last year's conference finals won by San Antonio in a sweep.

Duncan led the Spurs to the NBA title last season, winning Most Valuable Player of the Finals. He is averaging 23.2 points, 12.4 rebounds and 2.2 blocks, all among the top 10 in the NBA.

His low-post game makes fellow "Twin Tower" David Robinson even more dangerous and spreads the floor for San Antonio's outside shooters. But the Spurs dropped to 2-3 without him.

"He makes a big difference when he is out there," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "A lot of times with a guy like that out, a team can pull together and win a game. But over a long stretch they are not going to do so well."

"Tim makes that team completely different," Portland guard Steve Smith said. "His added size down low gets a lot of outside guys open. But honestly, we would rather play the Spurs with Tim and see what happens to find out just where we are."

Without Duncan, the Spurs shot just 43 percent (30-of-70) and allowed Portland to shoot a blistering 56.5 percent (36-of-69). They never led and trailed by as many as 21 points.

Robinson had 16 points and nine rebounds and Samaki Walker -- who started for Duncan -- added 13 and 10. However, Robinson again was bothered by a neck spasm.

"It has been a recurring thing all year," Robinson said. "There is a nerve that spasms when it is hit the wrong way. But it usually goes away quickly and I can get back to work."

Wallace scored 13 points in the first quarter as Portland opened a 25-20 lead. San Antonio still was within 32-26 when Sabonis scored five points in a 14-4 burst. A foul shot by Stacey Augmon capped it at 46-30 with 3:45 remaining in the second quarter.

The Blazers led 55-39 at halftime and Smith scored seven of his nine points in the third quarter. A layup by Jermaine O'Neal gave Portland its largest lead at 77-56 with 1:43 to play in the period.

Damon Stoudamire scored 11 points for Portland. Malik Rose had nine for San Antonio.
