Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The San Antonio Spurs only needed one of their "Twin Towers" to defeat the lowly Golden State Warriors.

With David Robinson sitting out due to soreness in his lower back, Tim Duncan had 28 points, nine rebounds and four blocks as the Spurs inched closer to home-court advantage throughout the playoffs with a 84-76 victory over the surprisingly competitive Warriors.

Golden State looked like it was on its way to snapping an 11-game losing streak against San Antonio but reverted to its usual form in the third quarter.

The Warriors led by three when the Spurs reeled off 11 straight points to take a 62-54 lead with 1:29 left in the third quarter.

Duncan scored four points during that spurt and Malik Rose started and closed the run with short jumpers.

Duncan scored 10 points in the fourth period and Antonio Daniels scored seven of his 19 points in the final quarter as San Antonio moved 1 1/2 games ahead of Philadelphia for the best record in the NBA.

"We've got five games left and every game is important," Duncan said. "Our opponent doesn't matter. It's about the game and the victory and that is what we're focusing on."

Danny Ferry added 10 points for the Spurs, who were beaten on the boards, 53-41, without Robinson in the middle. He was replaced by Samaki Walker, who collected six points and five rebounds.

"(David) has a sore back," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "He needs a little time to work it out, so we needed to sit him tonight so he wouldn't injure it more seriously before we get him home so he could straighten it out. I think he'll be just fine."

"It's so difficult without David out there," Duncan said. "He's such a big asset to our team with what he brings to the table and his intimidation factor."

Rose chipped in nine points off the bench as San Antonio's starting backcourt of Terry Porter and Derek Anderson combined for just eight points on 2-of-13 shooting.

"Malik Rose and Antonio Daniels were the difference in the fourth quarter and that's how our whole season has been," Duncan said. "People keep stepping up. Somebody's down and another person steps up."

"The Warriors had a lot to do with us not playing well," Popovich said. "They didn't give up. They didn't care who the hell we were or what our record was and I think that's a credit to them."

Vonteego Cummings had 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists for Golden State, which has lost 18 of its last 19 games overall and 12 of 13 at home.

"We wanted to compete for 48 minutes and we did that for about 44," Cummings said. "I'll take the energy everyone played with. If we played like that all year, we would have come up with a lot of games that we lost."

Antawn Jamison scored all 13 of his points after halftime and tied a career high with seven assists after sitting out the second quarter.

"Antawn didn't play in the second quarter because he didn't show me very much," said Cowens. "He played much better in the second half. Sometimes it's good for a guy to sit over there and look at things for a while."

Corie Blount collected 10 points and 14 rebounds and rookie Chris Porter chipped in 12 for the Warriors, who have not beaten San Antonio since March 4, 1998.

Golden State shot just 36 percent (31-of-86) and made only 12-of-18 free throws, but held the Spurs 3-of-12 shooting from 3-point range.
