Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan asserted himself while Karl Malone and John Stockton nearly embarrassed themselves.

Duncan collected 33 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks to lead the San Antonio Spurs to their third straight victory, a 99-86 triumph over the Utah Jazz, who were let down by their stars.

Duncan shot 11-of-18 from the field and 11-of-21 at the line, where his problems continued. But that was just about the only place where he looked fallible.

"Timmy was a monster tonight and that makes a big difference," Spurs center David Robinson said. "When you get that kind of effort you have a chance to win every night."

The superstar forward was coming off a huge game in Thursday's win at Sacramento, where he collected a season-high 36 points and 21 rebounds, primarily against Chris Webber.

"We are getting better and playing better on the road," Duncan said. "We are getting a personality and our guys are starting to find out what we have to do to win."

In this game, he scored 20 points in the first half, when San Antonio took the lead for good as Malone and Stockton could not get untracked in front of a friendly crowd and a national TV audience.

Malone and Stockton combined to shoot 0-of-12 until Malone's jumper from the left sideline with 5:24 left in the third quarter. By that time, the Spurs were in control at 66-54 and saw their lead dip under double digits for just 59 seconds thereafter.

"You don't stop Karl," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I think we did a good job of keeping him away from the rim and getting the easy buckets. He had to work for his buckets or shoot jumpers."

"I don't know if that's ever happened in their career," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said.

In the finale of a franchise-record eight-game homestand, Utah put up very little fight in the fourth quarter and suffered its worst home loss of the season. Its four-game winning streak was snapped and its lead over San Antonio in the Midwest Division was reduced to one-half game.

Derek Anderson scored 22 points and backcourt mate Terry Porter added 17, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the Spurs, who are 3-0 against the Jazz this season, holding them below 40 percent from the field in each game.

Malone made just 5-of-15 shots and collected 19 points and 11 rebounds. Stockton was held to five points on 1-of-5 shooting and three assists.

"We had some good looks and just didn't make them," Malone said. "I came out and missed my first seven or eight shots, but give them credit -- they were the aggressors the whole day."

"You can't hang your head if you're not hitting the shots," Stockton said. "You can't quit shooting because that's what this game is all about. You just keep putting the ball up and hope you work your way out of the troubles."

Donyell Marshall had 18 points and nine boards for Utah, which shot under 38 percent (31-of-82) while allowing San Antonio to shoot nearly 52 percent (33-of-64).

"As simplistic as it sounds, winning tonight had a lot to do with hitting shots," Popovich said. "I don't think they shot very well against us. They had open shots and when you hit them, the game is a lot closer."

The Spurs took the lead for good at 6-4 on a basket by Duncan that triggered a 14-2 run. He and Anderson had four points each in the surge and Porter's layup made it 18-6 midway through the opening period.

"I felt good coming out of the gate," Duncan said. "I'm not really an early-part-of-the-game guy but it felt good tonight. Things went down for me early and we just kept rolling along."

Duncan scored 13 points in the first quarter, which ended with the Spurs holding a 29-16 lead. The Jazz closed to 54-42 at halftime and 68-60 on Bryon Russell's jumper with 1:59 left in the third quarter.

Anderson answered with a 3-pointer and the lead remained in double figures thereafter. San Antonio led 75-62 entering the final period and jumpers by Duncan on consecutive possessions gave the Spurs their largest lead at 85-64 with 8:36 left.

"We just have to devise a good defensive plan for Tim Duncan," Jazz guard John Starks said. "We need to develop the same philosophy we had against Chicago -- let Michael (Jordan) get his points but stop everybody else. That's what we have to do against the Spurs. Contest him on every shot, but let Tim have his and shut off everybody else's water."

Robinson and Steve Kerr scored 10 points each for San Antonio, which made 28 foul shots, one more than Utah attempted. Russell scored 14 points for the Jazz.
