Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Even when he's not at full strength, Tim Duncan still looks pretty good. Battling through a sprained right ankle, Duncan had an efficient game as the San Antonio Spurs extended their winning streak to five games with a 90-74 victory over the New Jersey Nets. A game-time decision after suffering the injury early in the second half of Sunday's win over Utah, Duncan still had his way with the weak frontcourt of the Nets. The superstar scored 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting, grabbed eight rebounds and added four blocks in 24 efficient minutes. "I felt good before the game, so I thought I would give it a shot," Duncan said. "For precautionary reasons, coach Popovich did not want to see me out there. It felt pretty throughout the game, but it isn't as good as I want it to be." Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was not all that pleased with what he saw from his star. "I didn't love it," Popovich said. "I didn't see the explosiveness. I didn't want to play him, but said he felt fine." Popovich also said he was uncertain if Duncan would play Wednesday at Phoenix in a matchup of the NBA's top teams. "With the back-to-back, I'm not sure," Popovich said. "He knows his body and I trust him, but it's definitely a different situation with the back-to-back." While Duncan may not have been as dominant as he normally is, Spurs defensive wizard Bruce Bowen shut down Nets star Vince Carter. In the first meeting between the teams February 11, Carter had his way with Bowen - one of the NBA's best defenders - as he scored a season high-tying 43 points before he was ejected with 9:43 remaining in the fourth quarter. Carter's ejection came after he picked up his second technical foul, both of which occurred as the result of confrontations with Bowen. Nearly a month later, Bowen harassed and frustrated Carter, who missed his first seven shots and went 4-of-18 overall from the field. Carter finished with 13 points, the first time in 19 games he failed to reach the 20-point mark. Rather than giving Bowen credit, Carter blamed a hand injury on his woeful performance. "There was something wrong with my hand tonight," said Carter, who had X-rays on his right index finger after the game that came back negative. "I couldn't put it in the hole. It happened sometime in the first quarter. I couldn't shoot or pass the ball as the game went on. It's not an excuse. It's just what happened." Devin Brown scored 15 of his 22 points in the first half, helping the Spurs build a 47-28 lead. The Nets used a 14-1 run to get back in the game late in the third quarter before the Spurs eventually pulled away in the final period. "Once you get out in the open floor, you get a rhythm and then it gets easier hitting jumpers," said Brown, who also guarded Carter at times. Rookie Nenad Krstic scored 19 points and Jason Kidd added 14 and nine assists for the Nets (26-35), who absorbed their third straight lopsided setback while matching their loss total from last season. "In a lot of ways, it was just one of those nights for us," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "They are the best defensive team in the league, so you always want to give the other team credit. We fought back, and we had some opportunities. There are just some nights when it goes like that." After Tony Massenburg split two free throws with 5:59 left in the third quarter to give the Spurs a 59-39 bulge, the Nets embarked on an 18-4 run, capped by Rodney Buford's jumper with 1:36 left in the period. San Antonio rebuilt the lead to 68-58 entering the fourth quarter, then used a 12-5 surge to open the final period that put the game out of reach. Robert Horry added 12 points off the bench for the Spurs, who shot 46 percent (33-of-72). Playing the opener of a four-game road trip, the Nets shot just 32 percent (26-of-81) and went 3-of-14 from 3-point range.
