Derrick White had a career night in the Spurs’ Game 3 win over the Nuggets

Derrick White had a career night in the Spurs’ Game 3 win over the Nuggets

With 36 points and superb defense, Derrick White had his breaking out party against the Nuggets. Heading into the playoffs, if anyone were to tell you that someone other than LaMarcus Aldridge or DeMar DeRozan would be the Spurs’ best player, you’d probably think there was a problem. As it turns out, having Derrick White as your best player on both ends is not a bad thing at all. In their Game 3 win over the Nuggets to gain a 2-1 series advantage, White was all over the place, scoring a career high 36 points (26 in the first half) to go along 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 1...

LaMarcus Aldridge will face no discipline for below-the-belt contact against Gary Harris

San Antonio Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge will not be facing any punishment from the league for his below-the-belt contact with Nuggets shooting guard Gary Harris in Game 2 of their first round series. Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News shared news of the NBA’s ruling on Thursday morning, noting that it was “incidental […] The post LaMarcus Aldridge will face no discipline for below-the-belt contact against Gary Harris appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Game Preview: Denver Nuggets vs. San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

With the series tied at 1 game a piece, the Spurs will return home looking to steal back some momentum after Denver came back from 19-down in Game 2 and go up 2-1. It is pretty incredible that the Spurs aren’t up 2-0 on these Denver Nuggets. They got great games from DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge to go along with another very good performance from sophomore guard Derrick White. They held a 19-point lead at one point in the 3rd quarter, leading by 6 at the start of the 4th. What happened? Jamal Murray happened, that’s what. Held scoreless for most of the game, Murray went off in...

LaMarcus Aldridge’s hit to Gary Harris’ groin wasn’t a dirty play, Nuggets coach says

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said Wednesday he didn’t see anything intentional about the Game 2 incident between LaMarcus Aldridge and Gary Harris that left Denver’s shooting guard on the floor writhing in pain late in the fourth quarter.

San Antonio at Denver, Final Score: Nuggets rally past Spurs, 114-105

A crazy fourth quarter got the Nuggets by the Spurs after leading by 19 points. For 2 1⁄2 quarters, it looked like the Spurs were going to pull off the near-impossible and snag both Games 1 and 2 from the 2nd seed Nuggets, leading by 19 points in both halves. However, knowing it was a must win, the Nuggets (who have been known for their fourth quarters at home) stormed back behind a torrid fourth quarter from Jamal Murray to steal the 114-105 win and lock up the series 1-1. LaMarcus Aldridge, DeMar DeRozan and Derrick White combined for 72 points for the Spurs points. For the Nuggets,...

Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much. Game 1 was pretty fun, wasn’t it? Tonight the Spurs try to go up 2-0 on the Denver Nuggets. As Sean Elliott said in Game 1, the Spurs can’t be satisfied with one win in Denver, they need to get greedy and not let the Nuggets gain confidence with a home win. It would be a good night for DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge to work on...

Derrick White’s even-keeled play is required for the Spurs to upset the Nuggets

Derrick White’s even-keeled play is required for the Spurs to upset the Nuggets

To be their best, the Spurs will count on the young guard’s tone-setting defense and ability to counterbalance LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan on offense. Derrick White has been many things to the Spurs in his breakout second season, filling in for the injured Dejounte Murray to become one of the team’s three most important players, working as a borderline-elite defender at the point of attack with an expansive offensive skillset. Happy to praise the 24-year-old, Gregg Popovich has regularly spoken or alluded to one particular quality of his above all others, an “even-keeled”...

Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much. The Spurs open up the playoff season tonight against the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets haven’t been to the playoffs recently, while the Spurs have been in the playoffs every year since WWII. (Maybe I’m exaggerating a little.) But this year, the Spurs have a lot of new players and have been pretty inconsistent, although LaMarcus Aldridge...

Refusing to allow LaMarcus Aldridge to be taken for granted

Refusing to allow LaMarcus Aldridge to be taken for granted

Time to clap back at some NBA media types who keep overlooking the Spurs. It’s playoff time, which means the overall amount of NBA coverage ramps up a few degrees, even for “lowly” 7th seeds like the Spurs. And I say lowly because apparently that is the view some of the media has taken of the Spurs. I know, the Spurs are expected to go out in the first round, but so far I’ve seen at least three examples of the what I see as the media truly not paying attention to what the Spurs did this season, and in makes my skin crawl. Starting with possibly the most innocent one: ESPN’s...

Celebrating LaMarcus Aldridge

Offering a tribute to LMA for the work he has put in. After carrying the Spurs for stretches of the 2018-19 season LaMarcus Aldridge dropped 34 points in the finale against the Dallas Mavericks, locking the good guys into the 7th seed in the playoffs. Since joining San Antonio, LMA has been a rock for San Antonio, and this season is arguably his best in the Silver & Black. Which means it’s time for us to commemorate his excellent performance with some fresh gear heading into the playoffs. We have once again partnered with BreakingT to bring you this LMA-12 T-shirt which...
