Duncan helps San Antonio continue home dominance

Jan 22, 2011 - 4:50 AM San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - Tim Duncan recorded 21 points, 16 rebounds, eight assists and five blocks, as the San Antonio Spurs won their 17th straight home game with a 101-92 victory over the New York Knicks.

Tony Parker added 21 points and 13 assists for the Spurs, who are in the midst of their longest home winning streak since a 20-game run from November 11, 1989 - February 6, 1990.

"I was just trying to be very aggressive going to the basket and try to make stuff happen for myself and my teammates," Parker said.

DeJuan Blair donated 18 points and 13 boards for San Antonio, which has won eight in a row overall. Manu Ginobili had 16 points and six assists for the 37-6 Spurs.

Amare Stoudemire scored 18 points and pulled down 15 rebounds for the Knicks, who have lost five straight contests. Stoudemire came into the game with at least 20 points in 26 straight contests. It was the most in Knicks history since Patrick Ewing did it in 28 straight contests from January 25-March 27, 1990.

"You have to give them credit because they are long at the basket and there is a reason they are the best team in the league, but I think we had a shot at them, we just didn't make crucial shots," said New York head coach Mike D'Antoni.

Raymond Felton chipped in with 23 points and seven assists for New York, which has lost eight in a row in the Alamo City.

The Spurs held a 29-27 edge after 12 minutes of action, but trailed by two, 34-32, when Wilson Chandler made a layup with over 9 1/2 minutes left in the first half.

San Antonio took back the lead with an ensuing 7-0 run. Parker's layup made it a 39-34 contest. Duncan added four straight points later in the period to give the Spurs a 51-42 edge with 3:14 to go.

Ginobili made four free throws in the final 48 seconds to take a 61-50 lead into the locker room.

The Knicks outscored San Antonio, 21-16, in the third to cut the gap to 77-71.

Danilo Gallinari made two free throws with 6:44 to play in regulation to cut New York's deficit to 83-79. Richard Jefferson and Blair made layups around Stoudemire's miss to stop the bleeding.

The Knicks never got closer than six the rest of the way.
