NBA: San Antonio 100, Denver 99

March 28, 2013 at 12:39 AM

SAN ANTONIO, March 28 (UPI) -- Manu Ginobili's 3-pointer with 1:26 remaining produced the last of San Antonio's points Wednesday and the Spurs held on to edge Denver 100-99.

After winning 15 games in a row, Denver has dropped two straight -- missing out on a chance at victory when Andre Miller's driving layup failed to go at the buzzer.

Ginobili's 3-pointer gave San Antonio a 100-95 lead, after which Denver's Danilo Gallinari twice went 2-of-2 at the foul line.

The last of those free throws brought the Nuggets within one with 34 seconds to go and the Spurs' Tim Duncan then missed a jumper with 12 seconds left.

That misfire did not wind up hurting San Antonio, however, when Miller failed to connect on his attempt at a game-winner.

Duncan led San Antonio with 23 points and 14 rebounds, Danny Green hit six 3-point shots and scored 20 points and Tony Parker had 18 points and 11 assists.

JaVale McGee delivered 21 points for Denver.

The Spurs improved to 31-4 at home.
