Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The San Antonio Spurs were missing more than Tim Duncan. They also were without their competitiveness and cohesion. The Spurs went more than 11 minutes without a basket in the second half and collapsed in an 88-75 loss to the New York Knicks, who stayed in the playoff chase behind a big game from Stephon Marbury. Duncan, a two-time NBA MVP, suffered a severely sprained right ankle two minutes into Sunday's loss at Detroit. The Spurs placed their superstar on the injured list, and coach Gregg Popovich indicated Duncan would be out at least two weeks. San Antonio was just 1-3 without Duncan this season but had been competitive in every game, including narrow road losses to NBA powers Phoenix and Detroit. But the fire was extinguished by perhaps its worst stretch of the season. Holding a 59-53 lead with 3:44 left in the third quarter, the Spurs were outscored, 25-1. During their drought, they missed 12 straight shots and committed nine turnovers. "We just played very poorly in a whole lot of ways," Popovich said. "We were up six at that point and two things happened. We didn't make a shot, played very poorly and Stephon really got going. That's a bad combination." "We need to be more patient," said Spurs forward Robert Horry, who started for Duncan and scored 10 points. "We tried to overpass and things like that. We need to be more precise with things like passing because at a time when we don't have Tim, we can't be casual with the ball, we have to be protective of the ball." San Antonio missed its last five shots of the third period, then committed seven turnovers in the first four minutes of the final quarter before Devin Brown finally ended the dry spell with a layup that made it 78-62 with 4:21 left. Marbury was magnificent during that stretch. He scored New York's last 13 points of the third quarter to open a 64-60 lead, then became a distributor and defender as the run continued in the final period. He assisted on consecutive jumpers by former Spur Malik Rose that capped the burst at 78-60. "It hurts (not having Duncan), but that's beside the point," he said. "You still don't have to play as badly as we played from the three-minute point on. It's got nothing to do with Tim Duncan being there or not being there." Marbury made 10-of-19 shots and scored 15 points in the third period. He began the run with a four straight foul shots, a short jumper and a layup before putting the Knicks ahead for good with 20-foot jumper with 1:29 remaining. "We tried to open it (the offense) up," Knicks coach Herb Williams said. "(Marbury) didn't settle for a lot of jumpers. That was big, it got them into foul trouble." "Once he gets rolling, he gets his confidence going and then he goes to the basket hard," Horry said. "It's important for us to get in front of him and get the ball out of his hands. But by the time we were able to do that, they were up by too many points and we were unable to catch up." Marbury had 31 points, 10 assists and six rebounds and Rose, in his first game against his former team, had 18 points and seven boards, filling in nicely for the injured Kurt Thomas. "(In the) second half, we just played great defense," Marbury said. "It was a great win. Tonight we got all of the hustle points. We played extremely hard on both ends of the floor." In addition to filling in for Kurt Thomas, who is day-to-day with an elbow injury, Rose's familiarity with the Spurs' plays also helped the Knicks turn in their finest defensive effort of the season. "I think the team did a good job communicating," Rose said. "The Spurs went to that small lineup where they try to play the drive-and-kick game and we did a good job communicating, staying in front of people. That's what helped us contest all their shots." The Knicks (28-37) moved within 3 1/2 games of Philadelphia for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. Orlando (32-35), which lost at Charlotte Monday, and New Jersey (31-36) are in front of them. Brown scored 22 points for the Spurs (50-17), who fell percentage points behind Phoenix (49-16) for the best record in the Western Conference. "This was a difficult game," Brown said. "We started off really well in the first half and then the late third quarter really hurt us. We were unable to recover in the fourth." The Spurs, who fell to 19-14 on the road, tied a season low with 28 second-half points. Overall, they shot 38 percent (28-of-73) and committed 17 turnovers. "When you hold a team like the Spurs to 28 points in the second half, it means that your defense is really locked in," New York forward Jerome Williams said.
