Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- Two days after stopping the league's hottest team, the Denver Nuggets could not cool off Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs.

Duncan was 9-of-10 from the field en route to 21 points as the Spurs won their sixth straight game, a 93-79 victory at the Pepsi Center.

San Antonio improved to 16-3 against the Nuggets since the start of the 1997-98 season -- Duncan's rookie year -- despite resting the star forward for the fourth quarter on Monday.

Two days after ending the Portland Trail Blazers' 12-game winning streak and having five players reach double figures in a 109-106 overtime triumph, the Nuggets shot just 41 percent (31-of-76) and had only three players score more than 10 points.

Denver shot an abysmal 8 percent (1-of-13) from the arc. It was both their fewest 3-pointers made and lowest shooting percentage from the outside the arc this season.

The Spurs shot 50 percent (36-of-72) and improved to 11-3 in their last 14 contests. They are in the midst of their longest winning streak since they won nine in a row from December 4-21.

San Antonio became the 13th Nuggets opponent this season to make at least half of its shots. Denver has lost each time.

Antonio Daniels scored 19 points and fellow reserve Malik Rose added 18 as the Spurs' bench outscored Denver's, 51-26.

"It wasn't the greatest game in the world," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We're grateful that our bench gave us the energy and the play to get it out of park and put it into gear. Antonio Daniels and Malik Rose were great off the bench."

"Malik and Danny came in and did a great job, brought some great energy and really opened it up," Duncan said. "We're not taking any team lightly -- we need every game we can get."

Antonio McDyess paced Denver with 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting in 28 minutes. They were his most points and minutes since returning from an October surgery to his left patella tendon on March 1.

"Some days it's better than others, and it seems that I'm getting closer but sometimes it feels like a step backward," McDyess said. "Hopefully the knee will feel better sooner than later. It's frustrating right now."

"He played well but it looks like his knee is still hurting him," Duncan said. "He's shooting well but he's not moving as well. It takes a lot to come back from these injuries. I've been through it so I know."

Juwan Howard chipped in 14 points for the Nuggets but was just 7-of-20 from the field.

Denver held an early advantage but San Antonio took the lead for good, 8-7, on a basket by David Robinson 3:57 into the contest.

"We were hoping to come out and give a good effort and try to use the altitude," said George McCloud, who had a season-high 11 assists but just five points off Denver's bench. "They have such a good team, they can hurt you inside and out. They have good balance and know their roles."

San Antonio outscored Denver in the paint, 44-30, and from the arc, 15-3.

"San Antonio is a good defending team," Nuggets coach Mike Evans said. "Any time you have Tim Duncan on the court you're going to have a winning team. We only shot 40 percent from the field -- you can't beat a team like San Antonio if you can't shoot the ball. It's like a roller coaster when it comes to shooting. Tonight we just couldn't hit."

The victory was the Spurs' third in as many games against the Nuggets this season and fifth in a row.
