Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- With towering superstar Tim Duncan having a quiet game, Tony Parker came up huge. Parker scored 15 of his 25 points in the third quarter before his only basket of the final period was the difference as the San Antonio Spurs withstood a late rally for an 80-79 triumph over the Los Angeles Clippers. After scoring nine points in the opening 12 minutes, the 6-11 Duncan vanished, managing just three over the final three quarters. The two-time MVP was 5-of-16 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line. But Parker - who entered with the third-highest field-goal percentage (49 percent) among point guards - took control in the third period for San Antonio, which trailed at the half, 41-40. Elton Brand's layup 39 seconds into the quarter gave the Clippers a three-point lead before Parker scored seven points during an 8-0 run. The 6-2 native of France also scored San Antonio's last six points of the quarter to build a 65-55 cushion heading into the final 12 minutes. Los Angeles, which had lost two straight and four of six, fought back as Corey Maggette and center Chris Kaman combined for all the points in an 11-0 burst that drew the Clippers within 74-72 with 2:50 remaining. "There were a lot of times you could have just faded, folded, packed it up. But our guys stayed with it," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We had some tremendous efforts out there. Kaman's effort, just his energy alone, forget the numbers that he put up, just how hard he played was a terrific sight. He's been doing it for us." Kaman thoroughly outplayed his counterpart, scoring 21 points while collecting 14 rebounds. "It's always good to go up against the best players in the league. It's fun," Kaman said. With just 19 seconds to go, Bobby Simmons made a pair of foul shots to give Los Angeles a 79-78 edge. "We had a few minutes of really bad basketball in the fourth where we weren't hitting our shots and missed a few easy layups," said San Antonio forward Bruce Bowen, who had five points and seven rebounds. "The situation went from good to drastic in a couple of minutes down the stretch." But after receiving a pass from Manu Ginobili and faking an attempt at a 3-pointer from the left corner, Parker drove to the net and converted a layup with 7.8 seconds to play, putting San Antonio in front, 80-79. "Manu did a good job of attacking the basket and hitting me in the corner," Parker said. "I wanted to shoot the three in the corner, but they came at me so fast I had to pump-fake. I pump-faked and was able to get open. I believe I need to penetrate and make things happen." "Tony showed patience on that last play," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He could have taken a 3-pointer but did not. He showed a good headfake and went in aggressively." The play came as no surprise to Dunleavy, who warned his team during a timeout. "We basically told them in the huddle what was going to happen, that they were going to have a draw-and-kick play to Parker or Ginobili was going to get the ball in the corner and they were either going to shoot or attack," he said. "At that point, I would rather just make (Parker) shoot a contested shot. He got to the rim on us and Kaman came over to block and didn't want to foul him and he hit that kind of corkscrew layup that just rolled in for him." "We knew it would be Tony or Tim Duncan," Brand said. "We're up one point and we had one of our best defenders on him and he made a great shot. We didn't contain Parker that well." Brand had a chance to give the Clippers the win, but his jumper was off the mark and Ginobili gathered the rebound to secure the Spurs' league-leading 32nd victory. "I had an opportunity and it just didn't drop," Brand said. "It was good defense. I did have a good look. It was just a tough game." Parker dished out seven assists, Ginobili scored 13 points and Duncan pulled down 14 boards for San Antonio, which has won 12 of its last 15 games. Coupled with Phoenix's loss, the Spurs (32-9) now have the best record in the NBA. "It was a really good win in a lot of ways against a team that is playing well and having a good season," Popovich said. "I thought we executed well at the end of the game. On a night when we could have packed it in, the guys grinded it out." Maggette scored 20 points and Brand added 14 and 18 boards for the Clippers, who have dropped five straight to the Spurs.
