Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs came up just short of the top seed in the Western Conference. But the defending champions are the NBA's hottest team entering the postseason. Duncan collected 23 points and 16 rebounds in just 32 minutes as the Spurs pulled away from the Denver Nuggets in their regular-season finale, 93-67, for their 11th straight victory. The Spurs (57-25) came up a game shy of Midwest Division rival Minnesota for the best record in the West. San Antonio will be the third seed and will face sixth-seeded Memphis. "They're a high-energy team playing very well," Duncan said of the Grizzlies. "They have a good big rotation with a lot of energy from Bo (Outlaw) and (Stromile) Swift. They pose all kinds of problems, executing well. A very disciplined team. Hubie (coach Hubie Brown) has done a great job." The Nuggets (43-39), who won a conference-worst 17 games last season, are the eighth seed and will take on the Timberwolves in the first round. They will be playing in the postseason for the first time in nine years. "I'm excited to play Minnesota and so is our team," Nuggets coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "Minnesota is a great basketball team and so is (third seed) San Antonio. It's a big hurdle in front of us, that's for sure. Both of those teams you can justifiably say could win it all." "I think Minnesota has more pressure," Nuggets rookie forward Carmelo Anthony said. "Everybody's talking about getting out of the first round. that can go both ways with adrenaline and confidence. We have to just go out and not worry what people say." The game was tied, 38-38, before Rasho Nesterovic nailed a jump shot with 7:41 left in the third quarter to give the Spurs the lead for good and trigger a 16-4 run. Nesterovic capped the burst with a layup that opened a 56-42 cushion with 3:44 remaining in the period. The Spurs, who trailed by 10 points early in the second quarter and by a point at the half, took a 65-49 advantage into the fourth quarter and pulled away in the final 12 minutes. "It was a tough first half," said Duncan, whose team made a franchise-low eight field goals in the first two quarters. "Defensively I thought we were solid but couldn't make a shot. (We) came out aggressive in the third quarter and got some things to fall. Got the defense up and turned things around." "It was a bad first half, a great second half," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "The season's over. The playoffs start Saturday." Hounded by tenacious defender Bruce Bowen, Anthony had just four points on 2-of-11 shooting through three quarters and finished with 12 on 5-of-15. "Bruce Bowen is tough when the referees let him grab and do anything he wants out there," Anthony said. "Him challenging me out there makes me want to step my game up another level." The Spurs set season highs in free throws attempts (53) and made (36). "We are going to have to hold our ground and not get pushed around (by Minnesota). I felt we got pushed around today by San Antonio," Bzdelik said. "They had 53 free-throw attempts and I felt a lot of those were a result of our defensive mistakes. I think that's where our guys have to understand the physicality that's going to happen in the playoffs."
