With the Denver Nuggets adjustment on game 4, inserting Torey Craig and guarding Derrick White most of the game. White limited into his production to just 8 points a far cry from his average 23 points. Craig, a big and bulkier defender, bothers White most of the game. Jamal Murray guarding the small Bryn Forbes and they contain the Spurs backcourt. Murray didn’t burn a lot defending.
Expecting the Nuggets stay on this line up, Popovich, the master of everything need to adjust his line up. Inserting Rudy Gay and putting on Forbes on the bench. Starting Gay to small forward will be a problem matching up for Denver. He needs his confidence back, four of the Spurs five on the court can score at will one on one. This will back to normal rotation, which is good where Jamal Murray will work extra more effort in defense.
With the way Patty Mills played in Game Four, he will likely to continue play well that will give young guards some inspiration. Extend minutes of White and DeRozan to keep the team a go to guy.
