Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Facing the team with the NBA's best record, the San Antonio Spurs could not have played a better first half.

The Spurs shot 50 percent from the field, committed just one turnover and shut down Allen Iverson in the first half as they cruised to a 96-76 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, who have not won in San Antonio in nearly 15 years.

Guards Derek Anderson and Antonio Daniels each scored 16 points to lead a balanced attack for the Spurs, who barely had to rely on their "Twin Towers" of Tim Duncan and David Robinson.

"Tonight we played for 48 minutes," Anderson said. "Winning big like this can make a difference when you play aggressive."

"The guys should take satisfaction in a job well done tonight," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "A lot of people played disciplined, aggressive basketball. It was great team basketball against one of the best defensive teams in the league."

San Antonio scored the first eight points, bolted to a 29-16 lead after one quarter and widened it to 59-37 at halftime as it thoroughly outclassed Philadelphia, which came in with an 11-1 mark.

"We tried hard. They were just better," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We turned the ball over while not making shots; that's a bad combination. But we tried right down to the end and I'm proud of that."

Robinson had 12 points and eight rebounds and Duncan added 10 and six in limited minutes. They were among seven players in double figures for the Spurs, who played in front of an Alamodome crowd of 33,046 improved to 7-0 at home.

Against Philadelphia, that number is even more impressive. The 76ers have lost 14 straight games in San Antonio since January 6, 1986, when a team led by Julius Erving, Moses Malone and Charles Barkley keyed a 108-102 triumph in HemisFair Arena.

Iverson scored 21 points but just six in the first half. He and most of his teammates never got untracked as Philadelphia lost for the second time in three games following a 10-0 start.

"Our guards chased Allen all over the floor," Robinson said. "We didn't give him any easy buckets."

The Sixers shot 33 percent (13-of-39) and committed 12 turnovers in the first 24 minutes.

"We talked about executing, taking care of the ball and taking good shots," Brown said. "We failed to do that."

Anderson had a pair of buckets and Robinson and Duncan scored as San Antonio grabbed an 8-0 lead in the first three-plus minutes. A 3-pointer by Daniels closed the quarter and gave the Spurs a 29-16 lead and they held a double-digit advantage thereafter.

"Coach really challenged us before the game," Robinson said. "We were determined to stay on them, which is good. But you've got to keep going."

Consecutive dunks by Daniels and Robinson made it 39-20 with 8:55 remaining in the second quarter. Anderson's 3-pointer pushed it to 55-33 with 1:49 left and he closed the period with another 3-pointer.

In the first half, San Antonio made 23-of-46 shots, including 5-of-9 from behind the arc. Meanwhile, Iverson was 2-of-9.

"(Derek) did a fine job," Popovich said. "You really need two or three guys to guard him. He did a wonderful job chasing him and staying in front of him and not putting him on the line."

Philadelphia's Theo Ratliff scored 16 points in the first half, temporarily preventing the game from becoming a total rout. But any chance the Sixers had of getting back in it ended when they opened the third quarter by going the first seven-plus minutes without a basket.

San Antonio led 76-54 after three periods and opened its largest lead at 86-56 on a basket by Malik Rose with 8:44 remaining.

Sean Elliott scored 12 points and Rose and Danny Ferry added 10 apiece for the Spurs, who had 12 and just 10 turnovers.

Ratliff finished with 19 points for the Sixers, who committed 22 turnovers and made 1-of-10 3-pointers.
