San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs are one of the top three teams in the West again this year. Year in and year out, the team seems to figure it out. The Spurs organization has won Championships and continued to stay relevant throughout the years, but seem to have a problem with superstar Kawhi Leonard.
Reports from the Spurs camp are saying Leonard’s relationship with the organization has been somewhat heated. Leonard is not like the other superstars from Spurs past.
Leonard likes do do his own thing, and rehab with his own people in the off-season. Some are saying the relationship is so strained, Leonard could leave San Antonio.
This is not a good way to start the second half of the season, but San Antonio has the best head coach in the business.
Greg Popovich. Coach Pop is keeping his cool with the Leonard situation, but in recent interviews, it is obvious, he does not like be asked questions about Leonard and his injury.
Aside from all the issues revolving around Leonard and his status with the team, LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 22.4 points and 10.4 rebounds per game this season. Aldridge also made the All Star team again this year.
If Leonard can get back a month or so before the playoffs, San Antonio will be as dangerous as anyone in the West.
Look for the Spurs to play motivated in this matchup. San Antonio does not want to lose consecutive games at Pepsi Center this year.
The Denver Nuggets narrowly missed the playoffs last season.
The Nuggets were going to be in the eight seed last year, if Russell Westbrook did not hit the games winning shot at the buzzer against them on the final game of the season. This year, the Nuggets seem more poised and have more experience than last years squad.
The Emergence of Jamal Murray has been part of the reason.
Jamal Murray is in his second year in the NBA, and is averaging 16.5 points per game.
His numbers may not jump off the page to some, but his offensive presence on the court has helped the Nuggets contend for a playoff spot. It’s not just the Play of Murray, it seems to be the entire starting five for Denver.
The Nuggets don’t have a true number one scorer, so they have to play a total team effort. Denver is versatile enough to do so.
Gary Harris is averaging 17.5 points, Nikola Jokic is scoring 16.5 points and when Paul Millsap returns, the Nuggets will get 15 points per game back on the floor. Millsap’s veteran leadership has been missed on and off the court for Denver.
