Talking Gooden sits as Spurs roll over Wizards

Gooden sits as Spurs roll over Wizards


SAN ANTONIO - MARCH 6: Drew Gooden #90 of the San Antonio Spurs joins his new team on the bench during the game against the Washington Wizards on March 6, 2009 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -Tony Parker scored 19 points, Michael Finley had 14, and the San Antonio Spurs treated new addition Drew Gooden to a dominant performance in a 100-78 victory over the Washington Wizards on Friday night.

Signed by the Spurs this week, Gooden sat on the bench in street clothes while resting a groin injury that has limited him to just two games since Jan. 19. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said he may wait another week before debuting Gooden, who bought out of his contract in Sacramento this week to become a free agent.

Antawn Jamison had 14 points for Washington and Tim Duncan scored a season-low five in the lopsided win.

Caron Butler's sore hamstring kept him benched a third straight game for the injury-ravaged Wizards, who officially lost DeShawn Stevenson for the year Friday when he underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc.

The Eastern Conference's most hapless team - Washington's 14 wins are just one better than NBA-worst Sacramento - was crushed by San Antonio for the second time in two weeks after losing 98-67 on Feb. 21.

Ime Udoka scored 13 points and reserve George Hill had 12 for San Antonio, which entered the game having lost three of its last four.

The Spurs are more likely to have their hands full Sunday against Phoenix, and Thursday when they host the Los Angeles Lakers in the final meeting of the West's top two teams.

Darius Songaila and Nick Young had 11 points apiece for Washington.

Earlier in the day, Wizards coach Ed Tapscott said he pointed out the Spurs' four championship banners to his team during shootaround as inspiration. And it might have worked to keep Washington close for virtually the entire first half.

Not sure but I know he's not going to play Sunday.

He did mention the Spurs playbook was pretty thick ... so it will probably be another week.
