Nine days ago, the Denver Nuggets put an end to the Los Angeles' Clippers 11-game winning streak.

The victory took place 14 months after Denver snapped L.A.'s 17-game tear.

Can the Streak Busters do it again - this time in San Antonio?

The Nuggets open a home-and-home set against the Spurs on Wednesday night. San Antonio has won 14 straight games, two short of its franchise-record 17 set in 1996.

The Spurs, who will play in Denver on Friday, are the defending Western Conference champions and are in position to capture the top seed in the West.

Dylan Gabel put the “back” in comeback.

After overcoming a major back injury to win back-to-back state wresting titles, the Ponderosa High School senior was the recipient of the Comeback Athlete of the Year award given annually by Denver Nuggets athletic trainer Jim Gillen.

“This award is meant for Dylan Gabel,” Ponderosa head athletic trainer Chris Mathewson said. “He went through a lot. He’s truly the best kid you'd want to know.”

During his four seasons in Memphis, Darrell Arthur accepted his role as a pick-and-pop shooter who specialized from 15 to 18 feet.

Given more freedom to expand his range, Arthur has become a true “stretch 4” for the Denver Nuggets.

After making five 3-pointers during his time in Memphis, Arthur has more than doubled that total in a two-week stretch. He went 3-for-4 against the Washington Wizards on Sunday and is 11-for-17 from long range over the past seven games.
