When Lamarcus Aldridge was on foul trouble and no threat on the paint, Rudy Gay stepped up and he scored 12 of his 14 points in first half. He led to take the charge in second quarter where the Spurs up to 10 points, in every Denver run, Gay had an answer.
Until he committed 2 turnovers, first when he chose to pass a wide open lay up, then a huge one after he grabbed a rebound, Jamal Murray stole the ball from him and converted a lay up. Overall, he had an excellent game, playing the passing lane and stop Nikola Jokic with 44 seconds where he stole the ball.
Undrafted guard Bryn Forbes had 15 points, when the Spurs struggling in first quarter, Forbes no doubt for his shot and making threes and he challenge the lane for a score. His last one shot was huge to extend the lead in fourth quarter. If these guys continue to show up every game, the Spurs will likely hard to beat.
