NBA 2018-19, Denver Nuggets vs San Antonio Spurs: Preview and Prediction
San Antonio Spurs:
Dejounte Murray (torn right ACL)- OUT
Pau Gasol (foot soreness)- OUT
Isaiah Thomas- OUT
Paul Millsap- OUT
Gary Harris- OUT
Will Barton- OUT
Nikola Jokic vs Rudy Gay
Mason Plumlee vs LeMarcus Aldridge
How things might unfold
The Spurs kept Jokic quiet by double-teaming him and sometimes even tripling him. Jokic scored only 4 points but still had ten assists in the game. Jokic is MVP material and is not a guy who will have back-to-back off nights. Also, guards on the perimeter had an off day and are expected to perform better at home tonight.
Spurs, on the other hand, have been excellent lately, but most of their wins have come at home. They are still not consistent on the road and might have a tough outing tonight.
