MINNEAPOLIS — Whoever is up next for San Antonio doesn't really matter to the Spurs.

They will face either Utah or Dallas after wrapping up their first-round series with a 97-84 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.

"You can say it doesn't matter, and sometimes it does matter," said Tim Duncan, who had 24 points and 16 rebounds in Game 4. "This time, it really doesn't. If Dallas comes back, that could take a lot out of them. Utah would be fine, too."

David Robinson, who had 21 points and 14 rebounds, said he hasn't given much thought to the Jazz or Mavs, who meet in Game 4 Tuesday night with Utah leading 2-1.

"It was so hard to think past this series," Robinson said. "I've just been focused on trying to beat these guys.

"Minnesota was a tough matchup for us. They're a jump-shooting team, and that's hard for us."

The Spurs, 3-1 winners of the series, knocked the Wolves out of the first round in 1999 before going on to win the NBA title.

The Wolves lost in the first round for the fifth time in as many seasons. Their 0-5 series record in the playoffs is the worst among all NBA franchises.

The Spurs-Wolves game was the only NBA playoff game Monday night. Besides Utah-Dallas on Tuesday, Milwaukee takes a 2-1 lead into Orlando.

On Wednesday, it's Philadelphia at Indiana, Sacramento at Phoenix and New York at Toronto. The visiting team has a 2-1 lead in all three of those series.

At Minneapolis, Robinson came up with a pair of big baskets after Minnesota's Brandon and Anthony Peeler, both scoreless in the first half, hit back-to-back 3-pointers with less than six minutes left to close the Wolves to 75-73.

The Spurs outscored the Wolves 22-11 the rest of the way.
