Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Six months later, the New Jersey Nets still couldn't come up with answer on how to stop Tim Duncan and the rest of the San Antonio Spurs. Duncan collected 21 points and 17 rebounds to lead a balanced attack as the Spurs pulled away for a 99-76 victory over the Nets in a rematch of the 2003 NBA Finals. The Nets made their first visit to San Antonio since losing Game Six of the Finals on June 15, a game that saw them collapse down the stretch in the face of Duncan's greatness. In their return visit, New Jersey had a one-point lead at halftime as Kerry Kittles scored 24 points. But the second half was a different story. San Antonio's frontcourt gradually overwhelmed New Jersey, which played Tuesday in Dallas and took a 71-64 lead into the fourth quarter. The Spurs put away the Nets with several easy baskets to open the period. Duncan capped an 18-6 run with a dunk and layup that built San Antonio's lead to 89-70 with 4:42 remaining. "They're the best team defensively in this league," New Jersey point guard Jason Kidd said. "If you don't make any shots, it's going to be a long night. That's why they're the world champs. We played a good three quarters and just couldn't get it done in the fourth." While Duncan recorded his 33rd double-double of the season, he had plenty of help as all five starters reached double figures. Hedo Turkoglu added 18 points, Bruce Bowen matched a season high with 15, Rasho Nesterovic contributed 14 of his 16 in the second half and point guard Tony Parker chipped in 11. "All we did was pick it up in the second half," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "I don't think we were very physical in the first half. We just bumped and grinded a lot better in the second half. It was a good game. It was a good performance in the second half." The defensive intensity increased after Popovich directed his halftime speech at Nesterovic and Parker and that led to San Antonio improving to 17-0 when allowing under 80 points this season. "We had a special message for (Parker) at halftime," Popovich said. "He came out in the second half and played more physical, more aggressive. He played like it mattered instead of going through the motions." "Pop just got after me to get me going and it works," Parker added. "That's how our relationship is." The Nets again were done in by a poor second half and tied a season high with their fourth straight loss as they struggled against San Antonio's physical defense. Kittles scored a season-high 30 points but just six came in the second half, when the Nets scored just 29 points and shot a woeful 28 percent (11-of-39). "They started making shots, we started missing shots and they got a lot of easy baskets and it just went from there," said New Jersey forward Kenyon Martin, who has shot 6-of-35 in his last two games at the SBC Center San Antonio. The Nets also had little solutions to their problems inside. Duncan averaged 24.2 points and 17.0 rebounds in the Finals and averaged 26 points and 14.5 rebounds in the two-regular season meetings with the Nets. In this one, he spearheaded an effort that outscored the Nets, 52-18, in the paint.
