Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- In a game filled with aging legends and future stars, Tim Duncan played like a superstar in his prime.

Duncan had 35 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks and made numerous huge plays down the stretch to lead the San Antonio Spurs to their seventh straight win over the Utah Jazz, 102-98.

Duncan is often mentioned as one of the league's elite players for good reason and continually showed why against the Jazz. San Antonio and Utah battled evenly for three quarters, but Duncan was the difference in the closing minutes.

The teams were locked in a 77-77 tie with 10:09 remaining before the Spurs went on a 10-1 run highlighted by a pair of 3-pointers by Stephen Jackson. Duncan scored 10 points in the fourth quarter and capped the run with a pair of free throws to give San Antonio an 87-78 lead with 8:28 remaining.

But Utah rallied behind John Stockton, who scored seven of his 13 points in the final eight minutes. He scored five points during an 8-0 Jazz run and made a layup with 3:57 to bring slice the lead to 90-89.

Antonio Daniels' turnaround jumper with 1:57 to go gave San Antonio a 99-94 edge. But Karl Malone nailed a jumper and threw a full-court pass to rookie Andrei Kirlinko for an easy dunk that made it 99-98 at 17 seconds.

Daniels missed the second of two free throws with 16 seconds remaining, but Duncan beat Scott Padgett to the rebound and was fouled. He made both free throws, capping a perfect 17-of-17 night from the line.

The Jazz missed three 3-pointers on their final possession, including two by Padgett.

"We were fortunate to knock down a couple shot at the end," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We've always had a rivalry with Utah. If you expect to win you have to be physical and aggressive but stay under control."

Duncan made 9-of-17 shots from the field en route to his 31st double-double of the season.

"They don't double-team, so it's all about hitting shots against them," he said. "I know I'm going to get my looks, it's all about putting them in the hole and being effective with the shots I do take."

Charles Smith scored 19 points and Daniels finished with 18 for San Antonio, which shot a season-high 94 percent (30-of-32) from the free-throw line.

The Spurs won for just the third time in their last six home games and improved to 7-6 since a season-high 10-game winning streak ended on December 23.

"We haven't been together, but slowly some of the guys are strating to figure it out," Popovich said. "The new guys are starting to figure it out."

Malone had 30 points and 14 rebounds and rookie Andrei Kirilenko added a season-high 24 points, eight rebounds and six steals for Utah, which has not beaten San Antonio since February 28, 1999.

"I take nothing away from those guys," Malone said. "They hit their shots down the stretch. Give them credit, we had many opportunities, they just made their shots."

"If you can't get up about playing these guys, then you're in trouble," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "We played them pretty well. I don't think we're very physical but our guys played hard."

Malone scored seven points in the first eight minutes as the Jazz jumped out to a 25-16 lead. But the Spurs responded with six straight points and neither team led by more than seven the rest of the way.
