Saturday January 12 finds Western Conference playoff seeded rivals the Denver Nuggets tipping off versus the San Antonio Spurs. Denver ended their mini three games losing streak with a win over Memphis Friday night.
This means the Nuggets enter on fatigued legs to finish their back-to-back series in San Antonio. Likewise the Spurs haven’t been playing to their identity, rather they are in an odd win-loss seesaw pattern over their past eight games. Their most recent game being a loss to the Lakers
Last season, the squads played three times with the Spurs sweeping the series. Moreover San Antonio has won 13 of the past 14 games against Denver. The Spurs hold the all-time record having bested the Nuggets 114 of their 179 matches.
The Nuggets are in free fall; still clinging to the seventh seed, but losses to some lottery bound teams is disconcerting. At one point it seemed the Nuggets were poised to make a climb up the ladder, so Mike Malone’s task is suddenly much more difficult.
Denver boasts one of the deepest squads, but injuries and redundancy of position is a problem. Moreover, playing without Paul Millsap is proving to offer its own set of issues, particularly on defense.
Gary Harris has come into his own this season leading several key categories including points per game (16.9), field goal percent 29.8%) and steals (1.9).
Other youngsters demonstrating consistent production are Trey Lyles and Jamal Murray. Tempering the youth are quality veterans who the Nuggets may decide to move on from via trade in order to better balance the roster. Most notably of these are Wilson Chandler and Jae Crowder.
Harris was forced to miss Friday’s game vs Memphis for personal reasons. His presence Saturday is unknown.
San Antonio Spurs
Just as the Spurs seemingly turned a corner appearing to have almost everyone back healthy news surfaced Kawhi Leonard has a partial tear in his shoulder.
Coach Gregg Popovich doesn’t appear to be too worried, but this is yet another setback for the Spurs MVP who has only been available to play in eight games this season.
Arguably the numerous injuries and inability for Popovich to put a consistent lineup on the court is the reason for the fluctuation in the Spurs recent record.
Most teams would’ve gone on a massive losing streak. For the Spurs who manage injuries and health better than their counterparts this has translated into the seesaw win-loss, win-loss pattern they are currently producing.
In addition to Leonard several other core members are dealing with injury. Tony Parker is nursing a sprained right ankle, but is anticipated to suit up for this match.
Danny Green has missed five games with tightness in his groin and his availability remains questionable. Rudy Gay is also expected to miss the match (heel).
