SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Manu Ginobili talked about wanting to find his rhythm after helping the San Antonio Spurs win yet another road game. However, Ginobili certainly resembled the slashing, high-scorer that he has been throughout his nine seasons with San Antonio. Coming off the bench, he scored 20 points in 25 minutes and the Spurs beat the Sacramento Kings 117-112 on Wednesday night for their sixth straight victory. Ginoboli hit some key baskets in the fourth quarter when the deep and talented Spurs pulled away for their ninth victory in 10 games. Ginobili has been playing well of late, but said hes still trying to fine-tune his game during a season where several injuries forced him to miss 29 games. "Im still trying to get in a rhythm," said Ginobili, who hit three 3-pointers and was 8 of 12 overall. "Im getting there, its been much better the past 10 days. Im not at my best, but Im letting it come to me. Im trying to be more of a creator than a finisher." Spurs centre Tim Duncan said the team is the deepest in his 14 seasons with the Spurs. That was evident against the Kings, whose backups were outscored 55-20 by the San Antonio reserves. Rookie Kawhi Leonard was the only San Antonio player to go over 30 minutes, which was an important because coach Gregg Popovichs team was playing its fifth game in six nights. And the Spurs won all five games. "Pop doesnt allow us to look for excuses," Duncan said. "Hes doing a good job of keeping everyone fresh. He takes a lot of those excuses away." The Spurs continue to thrive on the road. Since starting the season losing eight of 10, the Spurs have been difficult to beat away from home. The victory was their 13th in 15 games and their seventh consecutive victory overall in Sacramento. San Antonio has defeated the Kings in 13 of 14 games. Leonard had 19 points, Duncan added 18 points and eight rebounds, Gary Neal scored 13 points, and Tony Parker had 10 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds. The Spurs shot 54 per cent overall, but were especially effective in the final two quarters when they shot 66 per cent and scored 64 points. "They play like a championship team. They play together and they look like they love playing together," Kings rookie point guard Isaiah Thomas said. "Thats a team we need to look up to because they are very solid in every area." Thomas scored a career-high 28 points and had 10 assists for Sacramento. DeMarcus Cousins had 25 points and 11 rebounds, Marcus Thornton added 18 points, and Jason Thompson had 15. The Kings have lost four straight. "You have to play perfect against this team," Kings coach Keith Smart said. "You need a perfect effort from pretty much all of our guys who played tonight." Ginobili, who had his fifth 20-plus game this season, hit a 3-pointer and came back quickly with a three-point play to put the Spurs in front 113-103 with 37 seconds left to play. Sharing the ball and running their offence precisely, the Spurs managed to maintain the lead throughout the fourth quarter. Stephen Jackson made a fast-break layup off a pass from Parker, and Neal followed with a baseline drive, giving San Antonio a 103-96 at the 3:47 mark. "We didnt have this kind of depth last year," Popovich said. "Our young players allow us not to overplay our veterans like Timmy and Tony. But down the stretch tonight I thought our experience really showed." Neal made a 3-pointer and followed with consecutive baskets early in the fourth quarter, and Leonards corner 3 put San Antonio ahead 93-86 with just under 9 minutes remaining. The Spurs shot 70 per cent (13 of 20) in the third quarter, yet were still outscored 29-28 by the Kings. Duncan had eight points in the third to help the Spurs take an 81-78 lead.

One teams chase of that crown will take a hit tonight when the Coyotes visit the Sharks with an eye on returning to first place. The Coyotes picked up a victory last time out to match the first-place Kings with 86 points, but Los Angeles owns the current tiebreaker because it has played one less game. Phoenix has seven games left on its schedule, while Los Angeles is also in action tonight against visiting Boston. The Sharks are also lurking with 84 points, putting them 10th overall in the Western Conference. That is one back of both Colorado and Dallas and those teams are also in action this evening. Coming off a shootout loss to Dallas on Tuesday, Phoenix picked up a much- needed 3-2 win over Colorado two nights later. Raffi Torres had a goal and an assist -- giving him five goals in his past eight games -- while Daymond Langkow and Kyle Chipchura also scored. Mike Smith made 39 saves and allowed two goals in the third to make things interesting for the Coyotes, who moved to 4-1-3 in their past eight contests. "We need to grab all the points we can get and this was a big one tonight," said Torres. "Didnt want to give up those two in the third, but we got out of here with the win and thats all that counts." Smith notched the 100th victory of his career, while Ray Whitney had an assist to give him 70 points on the season. The 39-year-old has nine points over a six-game point streak and is just four shy of reaching 1,000 points in his career. The Coyotes were without captain Shane Doan, who served the first of a three- game suspension for an elbowing penalty that occurred in the shootout loss to the Stars. That ban continues tonight against a Sharks club that snapped a two-game slide with Thursdays 2-1 win over the Bruins. Antti Niemi made 16 saves, while Daniel Winnik and Joe Pavelski added goals. Winnik -- a former Coyote -- notched his first tally in 13 games since joining San Jose in a trade with Colorado. "There was lots of energy in the building tonight," said Pavelski. "Thats probably our most complete game in a long, long time." San Jose picked up a win in the opener of a three-game homestand and had lost eight of 11 before besting Boston. The Coyotes have won three straight versus the Sharks -- two by shutout -- since losing their first encounter this season with their division rivals. Phoenix also snapped a six-game slide in San Jose with a 3-0 win on Nov. 12 behind a 31-save shutout by Smith. Vancouver Canucks at Colorado Avalanche (Sports Network) - The Vancouver Canucks will try to become the first team in the NHL to clinch their respective division tonight with a sixth straight win over the Colorado Avalanche.dddddddddddd The Canucks have 97 points on the season, 12 ahead of the second-place Avalanche in the Northwest standings. With Colorado only having six games left on its schedule, a point this evening by Vancouver would wrap up its fourth straight division crown. Vancouver also trails St. Louis by four points for the top seed in the Western Conference with a game in hand and won for only the fourth time this month with Thursdays 2-1 victory in Dallas. Backup Cory Schneider made 25 saves, Mason Raymond scored in the first period and Kevin Bieksa had the winner early in the third for the Canucks as they picked up their first victory on a four-game road trip that ends tonight. "This was a big win for us because we are that much closer to clinching now," said Raymond. "Were starting to click again and its good to get on a roll heading into the playoffs." The Canucks were playing their first game since forward Daniel Sedin was sent back to Vancouver after taking an elbow to the head from Chicagos Duncan Keith in Wednesdays overtime loss to the Blackhawks. Keith was suspended five games for the hit on Friday. Vancouver may be just fine without Sedin tonight given that it has won five straight and is 13-0-2 in its past 15 versus Colorado. The Canucks havent lost in regulation in this series since Oct. 3, 2009 and have taken six of their past seven trips to Colorado. These two clubs wrap their six-game series on Wednesday in Vancouver. With virtually no chance at a division title, the Avs shift their focus to the final playoff berth in the West. Colorados 85 points match eighth-seeded Dallas, but the Stars have the current tiebreaker because they have two games in hand. The Avs are also just one point ahead of the Sharks in the standings and two in front of the Flames. San Jose also has two games in hand over Colorado, which had points in six straight (5-0-1) before suffering a 3-2 loss to the hosting Coyotes on Thursday. Colorado trailed by three goals heading into the third period, but made things interesting with goals from Ryan OReilly and Paul Stastny, whose 20th goal of the season came with 5:39 to play. "Its one of those games where we had a few turnovers and they took advantage of it," said Stastny. "But this time of year we have to find ways to win and tonight we didnt." Semyon Varlamov gave up all three goals on 25 shots in the loss. Erik Johnson missed his second straight game with back spasms for the Avalanche, who begin a three-game road trip on Monday in San Jose before playing their final two games of the season at home.
