Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan had 28 points and 11 rebounds and David Robinson added 14 and 12 as the San Antonio Spurs dominated inside and continued their mastery over the Los Angeles Clippers with a 99-81 romp.

Duncan had 21 points and seven rebounds and Robinson contributed eight and five in the first half when San Antonio shot 59.5 percent and built a 55-38 lead. Duncan, who leads the NBA with 51 double-doubles, played just 15 minutes after halftime.

San Antonio held a 49-38 advantage on the boards and outscored Los Angeles in the paint, 46-26. The Spurs beat the Clippers consistenly on the low post and compiled 26 assists while committing just 10 turnovers.

Antonio Daniels scored 13 points off the bench as the Spurs defeated the Clippers for the 13th straight time, including three this season. In those three meetings, Duncan averaged 22 points and 11.7 rebounds.

"We talked about not having a letdown before the game," Duncan said. "We started out strong from the opening tip and kept it going for the whole game."

The Spurs have won seven straight -- including a 4-0 road trip -- and are one-half game in front of the Utah Jazz for the lead in the Midwest Division and top spot in the Western Conference.

"After the road trip we just had, the last thing we wanted to have at home was a letdown," said Daniels after the Spurs improved to 25-6 in the Alamodome. "We have been playing great and we have been playing together. Our defense has been strong, and that's what (Coach Gregg Popovich) preaches. Good defense beats good offense."

Jeff McInnis scored 20 points and Corey Maggette added 15 for Los Angeles, which has lost three straight and six of its last eight since a season-high four-game winning streak. Rookies Keyon Dooling and Darius Miles combined to shoot 10-of-17 off the bench.

The Clippers were again without last season's co-Rookie of the Year, Lamar Odom, who has two games left on a five-game suspension for violating terms of the league's anti-drug program.

Without Odom, center Michael Olowokandi had difficulty with Robinson and Duncan. The 7-footer made just 1-of-10 shots and committed three turnovers.

"They just dominated the game," Clippers coach Alvin Gentry said. "We took some ill-advised shots and bad shots that led to easy baskets for them.

"There were times we had an opportunity to stay in the game, but we took bad shots and they ended up getting a 3-point shot or a layup and it goes from being a six-point game to a 10-point game."

Los Angeles had success in transition, outscoring San Antonio, 22-11, on the break.

"They really outran us tonight, they got a lot of easy stuff," Robinson said. "But we did a good job defensively. We came in with our minds focused the first part of the game. We didn't want them to think they could play with us."

The Clippers kept it close for 4 1/2 minutes as Cherokee Parks hit an 18-footer to trim the deficit to 11-10. The Spurs answered with eight straight points, pushing the margin to 18-10 on a pair of free throws by Robinson with 5:57 left. Duncan had 10 points in the first when San Antonio held a 28-18 advantage.

"They made it hard for us from the beginning," McInnis said. "The big guys set the tone for the game early. They got a big lead and it's hard for a team like us, especially without our leader, Lamar Odom, to fight from 20 points down and win a game against Tim Duncan and David Robinson."

San Antonio had just four turnovers after the opening period.

Duncan scored seven points in a 12-0 run that he capped with a 14-footer, giving the Spurs a 48-29 lead with 3:08 to play in the first half.

The Spurs did not allow the lead to dip below 15 points in the second half. Duncan was the only starter to leave the bench in the fourth, playing just three minutes. Shawnelle Scott's only basket, a layup, gave the Spurs their biggest lead, 91-63, with 6:06 remaining.
