The San Antonio Spurs Take Down the Denver Nuggets 102-94 on Tuesday Night
The San Antonio Spurs found themselves in a dog fight on Tuesday night as they traveled up to Denver to take on the Nuggets. Greg Popovich and company would trail for much of the game but thanks to a late rally in the fourth quarter the Spurs pulled out a 102-94 win.
Tony Parker (Pictured on the right) would lead the team in scoring as he had 24 points in the contest and added 6 assists. Tim Duncan also had a nice game as he racked up 17 points along with 8 rebound and 8 assists in Tuesdays win. Kawhi Leonard added 14 points and Tiago Splitter 12 for the Spurs, who beat the Nuggets for the fifth time in the last eight meetings at the Pepsi Center.
“I thought our defense was much better in the fourth,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich added. “We held them to about 13 points until the very end when Ty Lawson went to the line. But our aggressiveness on defense picked up, which fueled our offense.”
With the win, the Spurs move to 2-1 on the year as they head back home as the Phoenix Suns come to town. Tip off for that game is set for 7:30 pm Wednesday night and can be seen on FOX Sports SW.
