SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Tim Duncan scored a season-high 35 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Spurs, who improved their franchise-best road start to 5-0 on Sunday.

Brent Barry scored 11 points off the bench before going down with 22.2 seconds left in the second quarter after a hard collision with Ronnie Price. Both players were helped off the court and needed stitches - nine for Barry to close a 2-inch gash on the left side of his forehead and seven for Price on his chin. Both returned to the game.

Ron Artest had 22 points and five rebounds for the Kings.
