SAN ANTONIO (AP) -Michael Finley set a San Antonio playoff record with eight 3-pointers Wednesday night and the Spurs advanced to the Western Conference semifinals with a 93-78 victory over Denver.
Finley was 8-for-9 on 3s and finished with 26 points, while Tim Duncan had 23 points and 12 rebounds and Tony Parker added 16 points and 10 assists for the third-seeded Spurs, who dropped Game 1 to the Nuggets at home before winning the next four in the first-round series.
The Spurs will meet either the Los Angeles Lakers or Phoenix Suns in the second round. Phoenix, which led 3-1, hosted Game 5 on Wednesday night.
Allen Iverson struggled from the field for his fourth straight game after scoring 31 points in Game 1. Iverson, who the Nuggets acquired in a trade with Philadelphia in December, was 6-of-22 from the field and had 21 points.
Carmelo Anthony had 21 points for Denver, while NBA Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Camby had 19 rebounds.
Denver has not won a playoff series since 1994, when they beat Seattle in a best-of-five to become the first No. 8 seed to knock out a No. 1.
