Playing without their stars, the San Antonio Spurs spoiled what could have been Steve Nash's final game with the Phoenix Suns.

The short-handed Spurs extended their winning streak to nine games as they beat the Suns 110-106.

Patty Mills led San Antonio with 27 points, while Tiago Splitter added 26 points and five rebounds off the bench.

Shannon Brown scored 21 points for the Suns, Sebastian Telfair had 20 points, while Nash finished with eight points and seven assists in 17 minutes.

The Spurs will have the chance to win 50 regular season games for the 13th straight time, when they visit the Golden State Warriors for their season finale.
