DENVER – Marco Belinelli scored 27 points, Tim Duncan added 20 and the San Antonio Spurs extended their winning streak to 16 games by beating the Denver Nuggets 133-102 on Friday night.
Reserve Patty Mills had 16 points for the Spurs, who scored a season-high in points. This is their longest regular season win streak since reeling off 17 straight from Feb. 29 to March 31, 1996.
San Antonio also maintained a three-game lead for the top seed in the Western Conference. It's a quick turnaround for the Spurs, who host New Orleans on Saturday.
Randy Foye scored 20 for a banged-up Nuggets squad that lost for the fourth time in five games.
