San Antonio Spurs scheduled to play against the Denver Nuggets at 4ET. It will be the fourth game for the Spurs who are trying to bounce back after a tough loss against the Sixers.
Nuggets injury reports that Gary Harris (hip), Will Barton (knee) is out for tomorrow’s game while Jamaal Murray is questionable due to hamstring. Once the Nuggets starting point guard will play, he’s likely to get limited minutes.
The Spurs played well in the last three games using a small ball. With the lack of a big man, Sixers used size to win.
“We’re sick of it”. Dejounte Murray about Spurs’ recent loss. ” We’re on focus on the next game.”
Bryn Forbes is still out for San Antonio while Marco Belinelli will suit up who missed the last two games.
In their first game against the Nuggets, Spurs controlled the game for three quarters but the Nuggets rallied back to win behind Nikola Jokic and Jamaal Murray.
Nuggets Murray is the team’s second-leading scorer, Barton is third and Harris ranks fifth. It could be a huge hole into their scoring while also a degrade on wing defense as Barton and Harris are their top defenders. But Michael Porter Jr exploded for a career-high 37 points against Oklahoma City Thunder.
Again the Spurs will rely on speed as they rank second in pace after three games. While the Nuggets will try to duplicate the Sixers’ success by using size.
