Spurs pull away late to top Knicks in New York

NEW YORK (NBA.com exclusive) -- Back-to-back games are hard enough on your own court. The San Antonio Spurs just had two away games in two nights, and had the added pleasure of a flight from Milwaukee that didn't get into New York until three in the morning. After the transfer to the hotel and crawling into bed, it was after four.

But as Manu Ginobili put it after a 95-88 win over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, the win wasn't a matter of playing with their legs, but rather with their heads.

The game was in doubt until the very end, as Knicks center David Lee grabbed a pass from point guard Chris Duhon and tied the game at 82-82 on a layup with 4:25 remaining in the fourth quarter. But the Spurs played smart, exploiting a few defensive mismatches to score the next six points and pull away for the win.

"I thought we did good overall," said guard Tony Parker, who led the Spurs 22 points. "We were playing solid defense and we were moving the ball, our bench was playing pretty good. ...Manu made some big shots and Tim (Duncan) made some big shots. I thought it was a great team win."

It was the second game for the Spurs in as many days. On Saturday, San Antonio beat the Bucks 112-97 in Milwaukee. Now 17-11, the Spurs have a reason to feel optimistic as they continue to fold new players like Antonio McDyess and DeJuan Blair into a lineup that includes players who were a big part of San Antonio's championship years.

"We're starting to build on something and it's just a really good game to learn even more about ourselves," said Spurs veteran Tim Duncan, who had 13 points and seven rebounds.

"The whole season is about jelling for us and having to adapt to a new team," Parker said.

The Knicks (11-19) stayed with the Spurs throughout the second quarter, and David Lee had a steal under the Knicks basket and a layup just as the buzzer sounded the end of the first half, as the Spurs held a 50-47 lead.

Lee led the Knicks with 28 points and 10 rebounds, and scored eight of New York's final 15 points.

"He was really great tonight," said Parker. "He shot the ball really well, I think he has improved tremendously. Every year I see him he gets better."

But Lee's ballhawking couldn't carry the Knicks. For the second straight game, the Knicks shot poorly from the 3-point arc, in this case hitting just two of 16 attempts. It's been an ongoing issue for the team.

"We are playing a really good team that is playing well so you have to give them credit," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said, "but at the same time we missed foul shots, missed lay-ups, missed wide open 3s. If you don't make them against this team, you are not going to have that many chances to beat them."

D'Antoni pointed out that despite the poor shooting, the Knicks have been playing strong defense and he predicts that the offense will eventually get back in line.

As for San Antonio's back-to-back games, if anyone on the team had any complaints about the turnaround, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich wasn't interested in hearing them. Even though he made a few comments himself.

"I don't say that to the team, we just tell them, shut up and play," Popovich said.
