The Spurs' postseason experience got the best of the Nuggets' usually high-octane offense.

San Antonio disposed of Denver with a 93-78 win Wednesday, taking the series in five games and advancing to the second round of the playoffs.

Michael Finley scored a season-high 26 points and buried eight 3-pointers, good for both a career high and a franchise postseason record. Tim Duncan added 23 points and 12 rebounds.

The Nuggets, despite winning Game 1, fell in the first round for the second straight year. Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson each scored 21 points but combined to shoot just 32 percent from the field. Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Camby had 19 rebounds and five blocks.

The Spurs will play the Suns in the second round. The series is a rematch of the 2005 West Finals, which San Antonio won in five games.
