Wednesday, April 7th the San Antonio Spurs, and Denver Nuggets play for the second time this season. San Antonio won the initial meeting on January 29th by a score of 119-109.
Last season, the squads played twice with the Nuggets winning both contests. The Spurs hold the all-time record having won 119 matches of the 190 played.
San Antonio Spurs
It took until the final third of the season for the Spurs to fall off the West’s playoff ladder. But with their loss on Monday to the Cavaliers combined with a Grizzlies victory versus the 76ers they’ve fallen to ninth.
It’s an interesting time in San Antonio as it appears to be a changing of the guard with several core veterans in the last year of their contracts and Gregg Popovich moving toward more of the youthful era.
The problem is the young guys can’t seem to stay healthy and on the hardwood which is forcing Pops to rely on the vets. In the loss to the Cavs, DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs with 20 points while Rudy Gay pitched in with 13 points
The youngsters were represented by Keldon Johnson and Derrick White who each chipped in with 13 points.
Keita Bates-Diop (hamstring) has missed the last 13 matches. Trey Lyles (ankle) has missed the last seven games and 12 of 13 matches.
Lonnie Walker (wrist) hasn’t played in eight games while Dejounte Murray (foot) missed the match versus Cleveland. All four players are listed as day-to-day.
Aaron Gordon is the Nuggets lucky charm with the Nuggets unbeaten since adding the forward at the trade deadline. He’s appeared in four games but Denver is 5-0 since the trade.
The most recent victory came on Tuesday night versus the Pistons and despite not having Jamal Murray the Nuggets put up 134 points. It was the first time Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee were back in Denver to face their former team
Nikola Jokic registered a double-double of 27 points and 11 assists along with eight rebounds to lead the offense.
Michael Porter Jr. scored 25 points, Will Barton added 24 points, Paul Millsap scored 12 and Monte Morris added 10 points.
For as strong offensively as the Nuggets were in the 134-119 victory and in spite of the winning streak head coach Mike Malone was annoyed by how his team played on the defensive side of the court stating Denver would need to play much better against the Spurs.
Murray is nursing a sore knee so the team elected to sit him Tuesday; his participation on Wednesday is questionable.

The rest advantage belongs to San Antonio but the Nuggets weren’t necessarily fully taxed given Malone’s comments about the defensive effort and Murray not playing Tuesday.
