Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- In overtime, Tim Duncan got the ball and Shaquille O'Neal did not.

Duncan had 29 points and 12 rebounds and the San Antonio Spurs benefited from Kobe Bryant's itchy trigger finger in a 93-89 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

"We got a little bit erratic there," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "We started playing a little bit too much 1-on-1 instead of staying with what was working for us through the course of the game."

Duncan scored San Antonio's first basket of overtime and the Spurs continued to run the offense through him as they did all game. His presence in the low post allowed Derek Anderson and Avery Johnson to get free for open jump shots.

"They really came to me down the stretch there and with (smaller defenders) Horace Grant and Robert Horry, I have a little size advantage over them," said Duncan, who scored 11 points in the fourth quarter. "I really took it to the basket and just tried to push at them, get them to foul me and make the shots when I had to."

O'Neal had 33 points and 16 rebounds but barely touched the ball in the extra session. The Lakers scored six points, all by Bryant, who also had a pair of crucial turnovers and missed a potential tying 3-pointer in the waning seconds.

"It was a disappointing loss," O'Neal said. "We made mistakes at the end. We can't have many more games like this. I can't explain what happened to our offense in the overtime."

"We didn't execute in the overtime. We settled for one pass," Lakers guard Brian Shaw said. "The only was any of us touched the ball -- except for one guy -- was to take it out of bounds. We can't forget about Shaq in the overtime but we did."

It was a huge win for the Spurs, who were coming off Thursday's 14-point triumph at Portland. San Antonio blew a 15-point first-half lead and was 0-3 in overtime games before getting this one.

"Every game is huge for every team (in the Western Conference). It goes without saying," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "There are only X number of games left and you can drop from first to seventh if you start losing."

Anderson scored 21 points for the Spurs (43-19), who remained one-half game behind Utah in the race for the Midwest Division title and the best record in the Western Conference.

Bryant scored 38 points but took 33 shots, 10 more than O'Neal. They were the only two players in double figures for the Lakers (41-20), who fell one-half game behind Sacramento into second place in the Pacific Division.

"Normally we have a well-rounded attack," said Bryant, who has been criticized this season for selfish offensive play. "Tonight shots weren't falling for us. Having guys contribute on the offensive end helps out a great deal and we need them to do that but ssometimes the shots don't fall."

Duncan and O'Neal both have had trouble with free throws this season and this game was no exception. Duncan was 11-of-21 and missed two late in overtime, giving the Lakers one last chance. O'Neal was 9-of-18 and missed three in the fourth quarter.

"For some wild reason, I always shoot free throws bad against these guys," Duncan said. "I missed a bunch of them early and finally got my rhythm down and then missed two big ones at the end."

Duncan had a low-post basket between jumpers by Bryant to open the overtime. Anderson made a corner jumper and Johnson drove for a righthanded layup over O'Neal, giving the Spurs the lead for good.

O'Neal missed his only shot of overtime and Anderson hit a free throws before Johnson knocked down a 19-footer from inside the top of the circle, giving San Antonio a 92-87 lead with 1:37 to play.

Bryant scored to end a drought of nearly three minutes by the Lakers and O'Neal blocked a shot by Duncan. But at the other end, Bryant lost the ball as he rose for a jumper and when he caught it, he was whistled for a double-dribble with 18 seconds to go.

Duncan was fouled and missed both free throws but Bryant missed a 27-footer and Danny Ferry rebounded with 1.5 seconds left. He made 1-of-2 to seal the win and give San Antonio a split of the four-game season series.

David Robinson scored 11 points for the Spurs, who shot 41 percent (31-of-76) and made 27-of-39 from the line.

Grant grabbed 12 rebounds and Shaw pulled down nine for the Lakers, who shot 42 percent (37-of-88) but missed all 11 of their 3-pointers. Los Angeles held a 51-41 edge on the glass.

Duncan's turnaround jumper gave the Spurs an 80-75 lead with 4:37 left in the fourth quarter. Bryant and O'Neal scored and Duncan split a pair from the line before Bryant tied it at 81-81 with a jumper with 46 seconds left.

Robinson made two free throws with 32 seconds to go and Bryant got a favorable whistle as his shot was blocked by Duncan, who was called for a foul with 16 seconds to play. Bryant made both free throws and Anderson missed an open jumper at the buzzer.

The Spurs got off to a quick start and opened their largest lead at 44-29 on a free throw by Duncan with 4:19 left in the second quarter. But the Lakers scored the last 12 points of the first half and the first four of the second, taking a 45-44 lead on a driving layup by Bryant.
