Spurs tackle Clippers 115-90

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- The San Antonio Spurs continued to prod themselves Sunday night, picking up speed as their season moved past the quarter pole.

After stumbling through their slowest start in the Tim Duncan-era, the Spurs won their third consecutive game and eighth in the last 11 with a 115-90 victory against the listless Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center.

"We are starting to play with a sense of urgency," said San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich. "We are starting to focus better and more quickly." The Spurs (12-9) showed they were determined to play with a lead against the Clippers. They opened the game with their highest-scoring quarter of the season, jumping out to a 39-23 advantage.

The Clippers (9-13) chipped away, getting as close as seven points in the third quarter, but they couldn't sustain the comeback and lost for the second straight time on their home floor.

"We came out and played horribly in the first quarter," said Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy. "We just shot ourselves in the foot."

Duncan scored 21 points?one of six Spurs in double figures?before sitting out the fourth quarter after he was inadvertently elbowed on the side of the head by a teammate.

Though his scoring average is below 19 points for one of the few stretches in his career, Duncan continues to shoot the ball better than ever. He converted 9-for-14 against the Clippers to boost his field-goal percentage this season to 54.6. Duncan came into the game shooting 50.8 percent from the floor for his 13-year career. His free throw shooting percentage is also about six points higher than his career average.

Duncan, an 11-time All-Star and two-time league MVP, keyed San Antonio's fast start against the Clippers, making all four of his field-goal attempts in the first quarter and scoring nine points. The Spurs were 15-for-19 overall in the opening quarter.

When Duncan wasn't pounding the Clippers inside, rookie DeJuan Blair was doing his own damage. Blair finished with 14 points off the bench on 7-for-9 shooting. Manu Ginobili also contributed to a 57-32 San Antonio advantage in bench scoring, producing 17 points on 4-for-6 from 3-point distance.

The Spurs were 11-for-20 from beyond the three-point line as a team.

"We need to know where their shooters are at all times," said Clippers forward Al Thornton. "We need to locate them and stay close to them."

Richard Jefferson also scored 17 points for San Antonio, George Hill had 11 points off the bench and Tony Parker scored 10.

Clippers point guard Baron Davis did not start the game because he missed practice Saturday with an upset stomach, Dunleavy said, but he came on to score seven points in the final six minutes of the first quarter. Davis finished with a team-high 20 points and six assists.

"I've been a little sick and I was getting a little tired and a little dizzy," Davis said. "But when you are out on the court, you definitely need to do something out there."

The Spurs carried their hot shooting into the second quarter, making three of their first four attempts and stretching their first-half lead to as many as 25 points. The Clippers put themselves back in striking distance, however, closing the first half on a 26-11 run.

Clippers center Chris Kaman scored 11 of his 19 points in the second quarter, but failed to reach 20 points for the 10th time in the last 11 games. Last month, Kaman scored 20-plus points in six consecutive games, prompting many in the crowd to break into chants of "All Star."

Kaman recently disclosed that he has been diagnosed with a Vitamin D deficiency, which has caused him to feel listless.

Thornton continued his strong play for Los Angeles, scoring 16 points. After averaging 7.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and shooting 37.3 percent from the floor the first seven games, Thornton came into the game averaging 17.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and shooting 51.4 percent from the field in the previous 13.

The Spurs continue their season-long three-game road trip Tuesday at Phoenix. The Clippers, meanwhile, will try to rebound Monday night against visiting Washington.

"I think we still need a couple quality wins against quality teams," Jefferson said. "There are certain teams that we have not played well against and as we grow and mature more, I think those things will start to happen."
