Brooks, Lowry carry the load as Rockets hold off Spurs


By Tim Price, for NBA.com

SAN ANTONIO (NBA.com exclusive) -- When the 6-foot-7 Richard Jefferson looked to be going in for an easy fast-break layup early in the second half Friday and had his shot blocked -- by the 6-foot Aaron Brooks -- it typified how things are looking lately for the Spurs.

Things looks weird. Really, really weird.

For the sixth straight game, the Spurs were outshot from both the floor and the free-throw line, and for the fourth time in those six games the Spurs lost. Brooks and his fellow 6-footer Kyle Lowry did the job, Brooks scoring 23 points and Lowry adding another 23 off Houston's bench in the Rockets' 116-109 victory over San Antonio at AT&T Center.

Even if Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is one to dissect and harp on defensive play, it doesn't take a Popovich to recognize it's not offensive futility that's causing teams to outproduce San Antonio.

"You've got to play a lick of defense if you want to win in this league," Popovich said, noting that in the past two losses at home against Utah and now Houston the defense was "really poor."

"It looks like the effort and everything like that is great," Popovich said, "but way too many mistakes, not enough focus, not enough execution defensively. We're scoring enough points to win games. We're scoring more points than we've ever scored in our lives. But our defense is really subpar, and its killing us."

The loss was a dark cloud over another sunny moment in the career of Tim Duncan. With a 16-foot jumper less than two minutes into the game, Duncan scored the 20,001st point of his career. He's the 35th player to hit the milestone, the 11th player to do it while playing for one team, and the seventh to latch at least 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 2,000 blocks. The only other guys to do that are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O'Neal, Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, Robert Parish and former Spurs center David Robinson.

Duncan, named to his 12th All-Star squad this week, scored 25 for San Antonio -- 15 from his 21 attempts at the free-throw line. His 14 rebounds made for two San Antonio players with double-doubles (22 points and 10 assists from Tony Parker), but his defensive presence in the lane was not enough to stop Houston.

The Rockets shot 55 percent -- 61 percent in the second half when they outscored San Antonio 61-53.

"The big thing was we kept scoring at the other end," Houston coach Rick Adelman said. "Our two little point guards are really tough."

That would be Brooks and Lowry. By the end of the game they led the Rockets to a 52-36 scoring advantage in the paint.

"Aaron Brooks and me pushed the tempo," said Lowry, who shot 7-for-11 with both of his 3-point attempts going down along with nine assists (Brooks was 9-for-18 with three steals).

"We took advantage of opportunities in the paint and capitalized on the speed of Aaron and me."

Shane Battier went 6-for-6 and knocked down both his 3-pointers. The Rockets' bench outscored San Antonio 53-27. The Spurs entered the game with the top-scoring bench in the league.

And that's what helped the Rockets overcome a start that saw San Antonio hit 8-for-9 to start the game. The Spurs were up 21-9 with 5 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter.

But the Rockets made seven of their last 10 shots and cut the San Antonio lead to one before the end of the quarter.

San Antonio again led by double digits in the second. But Houston -- on a pair of 3-pointers by Battier and another by Trevor Ariza -- went on a 15-5 run to close the half with a one-point lead. And the Rockets did it largely without help from Brooks, who took one shot in the second.

"I don't know how many games this is in a row where we've had double-digit leads and haven't been able to come out with a victory," Jefferson said. "We're not sustaining it for 48 minutes. That's what Coach Popovich is so [upset] about."

Despite being down as many as 14 in the fourth, the Spurs missed opportunities on offense and defense. Manu Ginobili could have pulled it to 105-104, but his 3-point missed, and Brooks drove on Parker for a layup and a 107-101 lead.

These are a pair of teams that aren't exactly blitzing through January. The Spurs are 6-6 this month, including 5-6 in their last 10. The Rockets have gone 4-5 this month after an 11-5 December.

The Spurs dropped to .500 in the Southwest Division (4-4) and the West (13-13).
