DENVER -- As the winning streak climbs, so does the stress level for San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich. Tremaine Edmunds Bills Jersey . At least, that was Tim Duncans assessment after the Spurs ran their streak to 16 straight by beating the Denver Nuggets 133-102 on Friday night. This is their longest regular-season win streak since reeling off 17 in a row from Feb. 29 to March 31, 1996. And Popovich seems to be growing more antsy with every victory. "Oh, very. Very, very, very. Very much," Duncan said. "Hes a teacher and wants to teach. He wants the good and the bad. Even through this streak, hes been on us a tremendous amount, making sure we dont rest on just the wins, but were learning from game to game." Popovich found a teaching moment in the third quarter with the game well in hand. His team relaxed on one possession and allowed an easy transition basket by Randy Foye. Popovich quickly called timeout and voiced his displeasure to his team. "Even as much as were up, he was still on us the entire game," Duncan said. Hard to find too much fault with the Spurs effort in this one. Marco Belinelli scored 27 points, Duncan had 20 and the Spurs scored a season high in points. San Antonio also maintained a three-game lead for the top seed in the Western Conference. Its a quick turnaround for the Spurs, who host New Orleans on Saturday. "This (winning streak) is great challenge," Duncan said. "Its a big challenge. People can get lackadaisical and look past certain games. Weve done a good job of not doing that." Foye scored 20 for a banged-up Nuggets squad that lost for the fourth time in five games. Wilson Chandler was out with a strained groin, while Timofey Mozgov and Kenneth Faried were hampered by an illness. Faried still finished with 18 points and 13 rebounds. "Theyre devastated, injury-wise," Popovich said. "Its not a fair deal." Still, a 31-point loss was hard for Nuggets coach Brian Shaw to absorb, even if he is missing quite a few starters to season-ending injuries. "That was an embarrassing loss," Shaw said. "Just from every standpoint of the game -- defensively, body language, energy, just embarrassing, and it starts with me, just doing whatever I need to do to get our guys prepared and to come out and give the kind of energy and effort we need, especially playing the top team in the league." Belinelli stepped into the starting lineup with Danny Green hobbled by an inflamed right foot and quickly found his rhythm. Belinelli scored 14 in the first quarter and finished 10 of 15 from the field. "We really love to move the ball together, thats why were winning together right now," Belinelli said. Popovich insisted before the game that hes not going to overextend his players to secure the No. 1 seed in the West. His goal is to keep them "as healthy and energetic as possible at this time of year." The veteran coach didnt have to worry about taxing his team too much in this one, building a 25-point lead midway through the third quarter and resting most of his starters for a majority of the fourth. All this winning so close to the playoffs is making Popovich a little anxious because, "maybe this comes too easy," he said. "Losing is not a bad thing at this point of the year." Trailing 20-14 in the first, the Spurs closed out the quarter on a 17-3 run. The Nuggets couldnt rally back into the game, like they did Wednesday in San Antonio when they trailed the Spurs by 24 only to make it close down the stretch, before falling 108-103. "We just let them do basically what they wanted to do," Foye said. "We had more fight on their court last game than we did on our court tonight. Thats unacceptable. We didnt bring it tonight and against a team like that if you dont bring it, its going to be a long night for you." NOTES: San Antonio kept Matt Bonner (strained calf) at home because, "he wasnt going to play anyway," Popovich said. ... The Spurs finished with 37 assists, including seven by C Tiago Splitter. ... Nuggets F Jan Vesely (bruised rib cage) was back on the court after missing two games. He finished with five points. ... Reserve G Evan Fournier had 15 points for the Nuggets. ... Denver trailed by as many as 35 points. Josh Allen Bills Jersey . Ryu (8-3) allowed a run and three hits in six innings and struck out six in his 13th start. In his first 13 starts last season -- his first in the major leagues -- the left-hander was 8-5 with a 2.85 ERA. This was the ninth time this year that Ryu has allowed fewer than three earned runs, and he is 7-0 in those games. Jim Kelly Jersey . Hamilton signed offensive linemen Mike Filer, Joel Reinders, Landon Rice and Carson Rockhill. http://www.billsnflgears.com/Customized.html?cat=908 . According to a report from ESPN, sources said Manuels college coach Jimbo Fisher told teams he didnt think Manuel had the tools to be an NFL starter. S-HERTOGENBOSCH, Netherlands -- CoCo Vandeweghe of the United States beat Chinas Zheng Jie 6-2, 6-4 Saturday in the final of the grass-court Topshelf Open to claim her first WTA title. In the mens tournament, third-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain recovered from a shaky start to beat Germanys Benjamin Becker, 2-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4. The 22-year-old Vandeweghe posted a beaming photo of herself on Twitter holding the trophy. "I got the first set and I thought to myself: one set to the good, one more to go," she was quoted as saying on the WTA website. "Try and get the early break now and keep the pressure on her." Vandeweghe entered the tournament as a qualifier and was playing in just her second final, after losing to Serena Williams at Stanford in 2012. With Madison Keys winning in Eastbourne, this marked the first time that two women from the United States had won titles in the same week since February 2002. Zheng, a grass specialist who reached the final four at Wimbledon in 2008, was unable to find an answer to the powerful serve of Vandeweghe, who had eight aces and won her first service 27 out of 28 times. Jim Kelly Bills Jersey. She broke Zheng in the third and fifth games of the first set, and again in the third game of the second set. The match was over in 70 minutes. In the mens final, Becker also dominated with his serve -- at first. He broke Bautista Agut twice in the first set and looked comfortable through most of the second, serving up five aces. But Bautista Agut took control during the tiebreaker. He began to consistently win rallies, nailing crosscourt shots and moving to the net. The Spaniard broke Becker in the third game of the decider and screamed on winning the final. Bautista Agut came into the final after a busy Friday when he played the remainder of a quarterfinal match against defending champion Nicholas Mahut, as well as a three-set match against Juergen Melzer.
