San Antonio:

Danny Green scored a season-high 24 points to help the San Antonio Spurs beat the Denver Nuggets 121-117 on Saturday night.

Green hit two free throws with 3.6 seconds left to ice it for the Spurs (6-2), who won their sixth straight home game and third in a row overall.

Danilo Gallinari tied his career high with 31 points as the Nuggets (6-3) snapped a four-game winning streak.

With former Nuggets coach Doug Moe in the building, the game had the feeling of an old ABA (American Basketball Association) matchup, with both teams scoring seemingly at will. San Antonio hit 49 of 89 shots, while Denver shot even better, knocking down 46 of 81 from the floor.

Gallinari hit a 3-pointer with 7.6 seconds left to pull Denver to 119-116, but Green followed with his two free throws and the Spurs held on.
