Nuggets-Spurs: Three keys to Game 6

Nuggets-Spurs: Three keys to Game 6

Win the first. For the first time all series, Denver won the first quarter in Game 5 and wasn’t playing uphill the rest of the game. Instead of Nikola Jokic setting the early tone, it was Jamal Murray, Gary Harris and Paul Millsap connecting on five first-quarter 3-pointers and putting the Spurs on their heels. The combination of their early scoring, coupled with imposing defense from Harris and Torrey Craig, sent a convincing message about the Nuggets’ intentions. After the first quarter, the Nuggets never trailed again.

A thrashing from Tim Duncan helped make Nikola Jokic the player he is today

Tim Duncan was a couple of weeks away from turning 40 and a little over a month from playing what would be the final game of his career. The Spurs were playing a Denver Nuggets team featuring a green rookie from Serbia named Nikola Jokic. As Duncan had done to many younger players in his career, he had a field day, schooling Jokic in the post to the tune of a season-high 21 points on 9-15 shooting. While the Nuggets won that game — a rare loss for those franchise-best 67-15 Spurs, albeit one that...
