Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- In a game filled with clutch shots, big plays and enough twists and turns to satisfy a season-ticket holder, Robert Horry put an exclamation mark on a win by the San Antonio Spurs. Horry buried a go-ahead 3-pointer in the closing seconds and then had a block on the other end to seal the Spurs' 125-124 double-overtime victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. The sequence allowed the Spurs to rebound from an embarrassing loss at Dallas on Thursday in dramatic fashion and maintain their four-game lead in the Southwest Division. "It was a great effort on both teams' parts," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Either team could have won that game since both teams did a great job getting after one another." Los Angeles rookie Shaun Livingston scored eight of his season-high 18 points after regulation and gave his club a 124-122 lead with a layup with 32 seconds left. San Antonio guard Tony Parker missed on the other end, but teammate Brent Barry won the scramble for the rebound and passed to Horry, who hit the decisive shot with 22 seconds to go. "Unlike the shot against Sacramento in the playoffs, this ball didn't just bounce out to me," Horry said, referring to a game-winning 3-pointer he hit for the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2002 postseason. "This time, Brent Barry had the chance to give me a pass and it felt good. All I had to do was set my feet and shoot it." Livingston, who forced the second overtime with a layup with 25 seconds to go in the first extra session, dribbled the clock down on the other end before penetrating and finding Mikki Moore underneath for what looked like an easy basket. Horry swooped across the lane and made a clean block just before time expired, giving the Spurs their seventh straight win in the series. "The block was crucial," said Horry, who scored 15 points. "Shaun Livingston was driving and getting to the basket, but on the last play, he dished it off to Mikki Moore. Luckily, I was able to get over fast enough and block the shot." The 6-7 Livingston had little problem reaching the hoop in the extra sessions but credited Horry with making the difference on the last play. "Maybe if there was one more ball fake, we could have gotten a foul on that last play and maybe won it." he said. "But (Horry's) a veteran player who makes great plays. He's been in that situation a ton of times. He just made the last play." San Antonio trailed by as many as 16 points in the first half and was down, 88-79, with less than nine minutes left in regulation before Manu Ginobili took over. The All-Star guard scored 17 of his 40 points in the final 8:22 of the fourth, including a three-point play with 15 seconds to go for a 105-103 lead. Chris Kaman, who had missed the previous four games with a strained lower back, answered for the Clippers with seven seconds left to force overtime. Ginobili scored the Spurs' last eight points in the first overtime while Livingston added six for the Clippers, who played the bulk of the extra sessions without Corey Maggette, Elton Brand and Chris Wilcox, who all fouled out. Maggette led six players in double figures with 24 points and Kaman had 20 and 10 rebounds for Los Angeles, which was playing its first home game since March 25 and coming off a 2-5 road trip. While the loss was a damaging one for the Clippers, the emergence of Livingston bodes well for next season. "That was a big opportunity for me," Livingston said. "I think not just now, but in the future, coach put the responsibility in my hands to make plays at the end of the game. That's pretty much what you want out of your point guard." Although Los Angeles was shorthanded down the stretch, the ball remained in Livingston's hands on the critical possessions. "I thought he was terrific," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "His decision-making was just super. I think he took himself another step further with his game tonight as far as showing his leadership ability." The rookie often was overshadowed by the versatile Ginobili, who carried his club when it counted. Two days after scoring just two points on 1-of-9 shooting in a loss at Dallas, he finished with nine assists and six rebounds and made his last four 3-pointers.
