San Antonio remain the best in the West with latest win.
The San Antonio Spurs edged a closely-fought game against the Denver Nuggets, sealing a 100-99 win on Wednesday night.
Tim Duncan scored 23 points with 14 rebounds while the Spurs were prolific from three-point range as they finished 10-for-15 from beyond the arc.
Having returned from injury last week, Tony Parker appears to be nearing full fitness as he posted up 18 points and 11 assists in 35 minutes of action.
In contrast, the Nuggets failed to hit a single 3-pointer, as their 15-game winning streak is quickly fading from memory following back-to-back defeats.
JaVale McGee provided a 21-point 11-rebound night in just 26 minutes on the court, but it wasn’t enough to turn the tide in favour of the Nuggets.
Denver host the Brooklyn Nets on Friday hoping to put an end to their losing streak, while the Spurs welcome another Western Conference rival in the form of the Los Angeles Clippers.
