SAN ANTONIO (TICKER) —Two of the hottest teams in the NBA conclude their season series on Saturday when the San Antonio Spurs host the Sacramento Kings at SBC Center.

The Spurs have won back-to-back contests and 11 of 12. On Tuesday, they defeated Miami here, 84-69.

Tim Duncan collected 17 points and 10 rebounds and Malik Rose 14 and eight for San Antonio, which limited Miami to just 41 percent shooting.

The Kings have won five straight games and seven of eight.

On Thursday, they beat league-leading Dallas for the third time in as many meetings this season, 126-124, when Keon Clark hit an eight-foot jumper with four-tenths of a second left in overtime after grabbing an airball shot by Mike Bibby.

Of the eight Kings to play, seven scored in double figures, led by Peja Stojakovic’s 36 points.

Stojakovic, Clark, Doug Christie and Chris Webber all recorded double-doubles for Sacramento, which outrebounded Dallas, 60-40.

The road team has won each of the first three matchups between the teams this season. Sacramento won here on December 8, 104-80, but San Antonio returned the favor with wins at Arco Arena on December 19 (83-81) and February 16 (104-101).

The Kings went 3-1 against the Spurs last season.
