Game Preview: San Antonio Spurs at Denver Nuggets, Game 5

The Spurs return to Denver for a pivotal Game 5 that can make or break their season. After such a great Game 3 performance, there was always potential for a let-down from the San Antonio Spurs, regardless of their pedigree at home all season.

Nuggets star Nikola Jokic says he modeled his offensive game after Spurs legend Tim Duncan

How Colorado’s Derrick White became 2019 NBA Playoffs’ breakout star

You ask what Jamal Murray ever did to Derrick White to deserve this, and Alex Welsh just laughs. He swears it’s just like that tag line on the old Terminator 2 movie posters: It’s Nothing Personal.
