=== San Antonio Spurs Team Report – December 6 ===
(Sports Network) – The San Antonio Spurs try to make it two straight wins this
evening when they continue their three-game road trip in Miami against the
Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena.
On Friday, Tim Duncan dominated with a season-high 47 points and added 12
boards in San Antonio’s 105-94 win over the hapless Orlando Magic. Rasho
Nesterovic pitched in with 12 points and eight rebounds for the Spurs, who
ended a season-high four-game losing streak.
Duncan was 19-of-33 from the field and 9-of-13 at the line, falling six points
shy of his career high. He also grabbed 12 rebounds for his 15th double-double
in 16 games.
With the score knotted at 87-87 with 4:25 to play, Duncan and Tony Parker each
had four points over the next 3:24 to spark a 10-1 run and put the game out of
reach for the Spurs.
The Magic were held to just 5-of-21 shooting in the fourth quarter, while
Duncan had six of the Spurs’ final eight points to seal the win.
San Antonio, which will close its trek in Chicago on Monday, is 3-7 away from
home this season.
The Spurs defeated the Heat earlier in the year and have won four straight in
the series. San Antonio, though, has lost five of its last seven in Miami.
