Some may be waiting for the Spurs to let up, but it simply hasn't happened. Can they win again in Wednesday's showdown against the Nuggets?

Gregg Popovich's San Antonio squad is 8-2 SU in its previous 10 games and has won three in a row coming into this matchup.

Denver NuggetsThe San Antonio Spurs have won two straight by double digits, including Monday's 111-96 victory at home over the Golden State Warriors.

Tim Duncan went out early due to an ankle injury, but Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter stepped up to lead their team to a win. 

Parker put up 17 points and 15 assists while Ginobili netted a game-high 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting. Splitter came up big with extended playing time, logging 10 points, 14 rebounds and three steals in over 26 minutes off the bench. 

Another win isn't a guarantee for the Spurs however versus a cohesive Denver Nuggets team. 

The Nuggets have won eight of their past 11 contests and head into Wednesday fresh off a 123-90 beatdown of the Toronto Raptors at home. 

In Monday's huge win, seven different players reached double figures for Denver, though Ty Lawson (23 points, eight assists, four boards) was especially effective. J.R. Smith meanwhile had 13 points, 10 rebounds and eight dimes off the bench. 

Two hot Western Conference teams face off 

Ahead of this encounter the Spurs are 9-4 ATS in their 13 most recent road games but are just 2-6 ATS in their last eight affairs playing on one days rest.

The Nuggets have torched the NBA betting spreads left and right lately, cashing ATS in six consecutive home games. They are 21-8 ATS in their last 29 games overall. 

Unfortunately for the Spurs Tim Duncan is expected to be out until at least early April while DeJuan Blair is dealing with a wrist injury but is considered probable for Wednesday's game. 

Denver's Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will miss at least a week and Raymond Felton has been hobbled by an ankle sprain. Be sure to check on his status over at SBR's updated injury report

Injuries aside, while the Spurs may own the NBA's best record, it's the Nuggets who I think will capture the win on Wednesday evening. 

I really like how Denver has been playing since a roster shakeup that saw Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups leave town. 

The ball has been moving around nicely rather than being stuck in the hands of Melo for most of the game and put simply the Nuggets are just playing much better team ball since the trade. 

Losing Duncan will hurt San Antonio, even if age is starting to catch up with the big man. The Spurs are a lot stronger defensively when he's on the floor and I think George Karl's troops will take advantage this coming Wednesday.
