Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Even with a healthy use of their reserves, the San Antonio Spurs were good enough to beat the Rasheed Wallace-less Portland Trail Blazers.

Tim Duncan scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds as the Spurs handed the Trail Blazers their third straight defeat, 99-93.

The loss dropped reeling Portland to the seventh seed in the Western Conference, where it will face the Pacific Division champion Los Angeles Lakers in the first round, a rematch of last season's conference finals.

"The table is set," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We know we will be in LA sometime. Tonight we did get some good play from some people that haven't seen a lot of minutes. I feel like we are going to play well against LA."

Wallace served his second team-imposed one-game suspension for "conduct detrimental to the success of the team." He threw a towel in the face of teammate Arvydas Sabonis during an argument in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Without their fiery star, the Trail Blazers lacked the fire to top the team with the best record in the NBA.

"The playoffs are a crap shoot the way we are playing now," Portland guard Greg Anthony said. "If we continue to play this way, it is not going to be a long run. At times we play hard and show energy and effort but we continually shoot ourselves in the foot. "

After a tight first half, Portland took its largest lead at 62-54 with 3:27 remaining in the third quarter on a tip-in by Dale Davis. But Duncan nailed his seventh 3-pointer of the season to get the Spurs within 70-69 heading in to the final period.

"It was a lucky shot, basically," Duncan said. "But it was a big one for me."

A basket by Duncan capped a 9-0 run that gave San Antonio the lead for good at 78-73 with 9:40 remaining. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich then substituted Malik Rose for Duncan, who did not return.

Without Duncan and David Robinson on the floor, the Trail Blazers still could not take advantage. A 3-pointer by Steve Kerr gave the Spurs an 85-77 lead with 7:34 to go.

A dunk from Stacey Augmon got Portland within 91-88 with 61 seconds left but Kerr had a jumper and Antonio Daniels made a pair of free throws for a 95-88 advantage with 21 seconds to play.

Robinson and Rose each scored 12 points for top-seeded San Antonio, which closes its regular-season at Seattle on Wednesday before facing Minnesota in the playoffs.

Daniels, who played the longest of any Spur, scored eight points and handed out six assists in 28 minutes. Duncan made 5-of-9 shots in 23 minutes while Robinson added nine rebounds in 21 minutes.

"I thought the bench did a good job tonight," Popovich said. "The combinations just seemed to work tonight. The reserves played very well. I am proud of what they did."

All 12 players saw at least 10 minutes for San Antonio, which already has clinched home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. The last time the Spurs held the top seed, they lost only two postseason games en route to their first NBA title in 1999.

"I've said it before," Duncan said. "I really believe (that the Spurs are better than in 1999). I think we shoot the ball a little better. Just like our championship year, everybody knows what we are doing."

Damon Stoudamire scored 28 points and Antonio Harvey added 15 for Portland (50-32), which has dropped seven of its last 11 home games. Harvey had totaled just 16 points before Tuesday but was inserted to try and spark the sluggish Blazers.

"We did have some good signs," Dunleavy said. "Antonio Harvey came in and gave us great energy. Its very important for guys to come in off the bench and bring that."

Davis added 12 points and 16 rebounds for the Portland, which was outrebounded, 49-44. The Trail Blazers finished with 50 wins, nine shy of last year's mark.

"Right now, we deserve the seventh seed," Anthony said. "We earned it. What we have to do now is try to figure out a way to earn the right to play in the second round."
