Hill's career night carries Spurs past sliding Rockets

SAN ANTONIO (NBA.com exclusive) -- While it's been a season-long fight for the Spurs to get some footing and find a solid spot in the standings before the playoffs start, other things have been blossoming right in front of their eyes.

The Spurs have been encouraged by the play of second-year guard George Hill, and in the 14 games that Tony Parker has missed since he broke a bone in his right hand, Hill has become even more of a threat.

Hill's speed neutralized the quickness of the Rockets' athletic backcourt on Wednesday night, and his career-high 30 points on 11-for-15 shooting led San Antonio to a 119-102 victory over Houston at AT&T Center.

"He is getting more and more confident offensively and he's slowly starting to try to take charge on the court and read situations," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "That's tough to do for somebody who hasn't been a point guard for a long time."

Hill also tossed in seven assists and came away with five steals, another career high. It helped the Spurs (45-29) stay a game behind Oklahoma City, winners on the road at Boston, for the sixth seed in the West. It was the eighth win in the last nine home games for San Antonio.

The Rockets (37-37) are threatening to drop below .500 for the first time since losing their season opener. They've lost five of six as they continue without injured starters Shane Battier and Kevin Martin. Manu Ginobili, the Western Conference Player of the Week who missed the Spurs' last outing with back spasms in an embarrassing loss to league-worst New Jersey on Monday, returned with 18 points and 10 assists in almost 32 minutes.

"[Hill] is playing very well," Houston coach Rick Adelman said. ""He's gained a lot of confidence since Tony Parker has been out.

"And it looks like Ginobili has been playing the best I've seen him play in the past few years. He's got a lot of quickness. He's a tough cover and he's smart."

The Spurs, who outscored Houston 66-52 in the paint, shot 57 percent. San Antonio attacked the inside against the league's worst shot-blocking team. Rather than bomb from 3-point territory, the Spurs took four fewer threes than their season average -- and hit 43 percent (6-for-14).

Tim Duncan, who's struggled through games of 1-for-10 against Orlando and 2-for-11 against the Lakers in the past month, was effective Wednesday, going 8-for-12 for 17 points and 10 rebounds.

Frontcourt 'mates Richard Jefferson (8-for-12 for 19 points), Antonio McDyess (3-for-5) and DeJuan Blair (4-for-6, 10) feasted on the undersized Rockets.

"When you have a 7-footer in the paint who's been doing it forever and is probably one of the greatest power forwards in history, that is what happens," Rockets guard Kyle Lowry said.

Lowry and Aaron Brooks have been tough on the Spurs this season before Hill exceeded them Wednesday. Lowry and Brooks each had 23 points in the Rockets' 116-109 victory on Jan. 22. Brooks had 31 while beating the Spurs 109-104 in February.

Houston won the fastbreak points both of those night. They did again Wednesday, but just by one point as the Spurs salvaged a season split in the series.

Brooks and Lowry combined went 13-for-29 on Wednesday.

Though Duncan showed a revival, he was no factor when the Spurs took control of the game in the third quarter. San Antonio had shot 63 percent in the first half but only led by five, and the Spurs' lead was down to 68-67 less than two minutes into the second half.

San Antonio then outscored Houston 24-7 over the next nine minutes and led by 18 without any scoring from Duncan. Instead, Hill went 3-for-4 from the floor, and that didn't include the three free throws he sank after managing to get off a shot attempt past the 3-point line when Brooks fouled him.

He also had a steal and a blocked shot during the run.

"I feel I'm maturing into an all-around player," Hill said. "I know I'm no fully developed, but with my experience from last year I feel things are starting to come natural."
