San Antonio Spurs
Denver got that big game from Jamal Murray we knew it needed and stole back home court advantage with a resounding win in San Antonio on Saturday night, 117–103.
Murray combined with Nikola Jokic for 53 points and Torrey Craig scored 18 in the starting rotation. Will Barton and Monte Morris hit double-figures off the bench.
The Spurs came out cooking and built a 12-point lead at the end of the first quarter but the offense came to a halt from there. By the end of the game, the Nuggets’ physicality got to the Spurs, even at home, and DeMar DeRozan was ejected.
San Antonio got 24 points from LaMarcus Aldridge and little from everybody else. Derrick White scored just eight after his big Game 3 and only Patty Mills provided much scoring off the bench. The scrub got some run at the end of the game for Pop.
So San Antonio must win at least one game in Denver, either this one, or in Game 7, in addition to defending the AT&T Center when the the two teams go back for Game 6.
The Spurs played well in Denver both times last week, winning Game 1 and then leading by double-digits for most of the next night before Murray exploded in the fourth quarter to essentially save the series.
Murray has been hot and cold in the series and, undoubtedly, the x-factor. The Spurs should feel good about their game plan to stop him, as they have done so for at least fifty percent of the time.
This should be a bounce-back spot for DeRozan, as so often we see great players atone for a bad game in the playoffs by coming right back and playing well the next time out. Denver faces a very real challenge in stopping him.
But the Nuggets really haven’t gotten the best of this series and are where they need to be to ultimately advance. Perhaps Denver finally seized some momentum by beating up on San Antonio at the end of Game 4, on the road, and will take it back home and roll one.

The pace was faster in San Antonio and I think that, more than anything else, may carry over to this one.
4* Free NBA Playoff Betting Pick: Over 212
I want to take the Nuggets but 5.5 is just a lot of points to lay, given that San Antonio has still been the better team in the series and won’t let frustrations from Game 4 carry over.
