Wilson Chandler scored 29 points and Corey Brewer had 28 as the Denver Nuggets overcame a slow start Wednesday night to post their franchise-record 21st straight home win, 96-86 over the San Antonio Spurs.

The Nuggets (54-24) also tied their franchise record for victories in an NBA season, with four games remaining, including two at home, where they improved to a league-best 36-3.

Andre Iguodala recorded a triple-double with 12 points, 10 assists and 13 rebounds for the Nuggets, who haven't lost at home since Jan. 18 against Washington.

They broke the old mark of 20 straight home wins set by Doug Moe's 1984-85 team.
