San Antonio Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets Preview

On the season the Spurs are 20-21-1 ATS and they have an O/U record of 20-22 and the Nuggets are 16-22-3 ATS and they have an Under record of 17-22-2.

[dfads params=’groups=63742&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

In their last games the Spurs beat the Utah Jazz 89-69 and the Nuggets lost to the Golden State Warriors 122-79.

The Nuggets have lost 3 straight and to say they were blown out in their last game would be an understatement. They lost by 43 points to the team that has the best record in the league in the Warriors and even at home they are a 7-point underdog facing the defending champion Spurs.

San Antonio has won 3 straight and they are finally at full strength with the return of Kawhi Leonard, who missed 15 games with a hand injury.

[dfads params=’groups=63727&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

The Spurs have won 5 straight against the Nuggets including beating them 99-91 over a month ago. In that game Leonard had a big game and San Antonio still cruised even with 2nd leading scorer Tony Parker sitting out.

The Spurs are a balanced team that ranks 11th in the league in scoring and 7th in opponents points allowed. On the other side of the coin the Nuggets have a legit offense, ranking 13th in points per game, but their defense only ranks 27th.

The Nuggets have given up an average of 117.5 ppg in their last 2 games.

Ty Lawson leads the Nuggets in scoring at 17 ppg, but in his last 5 games facing the Spurs he is averaging less than 10 ppg on 29.6% shooting. Backup PG Jameer Nelson has been a good recent pickup and in a Denver uniform he is averaging over 14 ppg.

The Nuggets are thin inside, especially since they traded C Timofey Mozgov to the Cavaliers. They have to man up and not allow Leonard and Tim Duncan to get easy buckets in the paint.

[dfads params=’groups=63741&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

The top 3 scorers for the Nuggets are guards and they have to shoot the rock well to win, However, not only is Lawson struggling in his last few games against the Spurs, but 2nd leading scorer Arron Afflalo (15 ppg) is only averaging 10.3 ppg in the Nuggets 3-game slide.
