Spurs start playoffs in Denver tonight

Spurs start playoffs in Denver tonight

Jokic, the Denver Nuggets center, became the fourth player in National Basketball Association history to put up a triple-double in his first playoff game and the first since LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2006.

It will be the first time any of Denver's players have played a playoff game for the organization.

The Utah Jazz hope to tie this series up before heading up for game three.

Making smart shooting choices, the Spurs did more of the same in Game 1, outshooting the young Nuggets. James Harden is averaging 29 points and 10 assists while Clint Capela is averaging 16 points and 12 rebounds.

It was a slow start for the Serbian as the San Antonio Spurs swarmed him on the defensive end, taking just three shots in the first half, finishing with four first-half points.

The Spurs and Nuggets split the regular-season series 2-2, with both teams winning at home.

They had the ball with 6.9 seconds left and needed a 3 even though they were just 6 for 28 from the arc.

The Spurs made 15 of 20 shots in the second quarter to build a 59-51 halftime lead. But now that they've gone all the way down to 213.5 points, it makes sense to step in and take the "over" instead.

Aldridge, who shot just 6-of-19 along the way to 15 points, said this is what everyone can expect the rest of the way in this whole series, too.

The Nuggets might try posting Jokic up early and having him look to initiate his offense earlier. The Nuggets won the most recent matchup 10 days ago in Denver 113-85, the most lopsided game between the two sides this season.

The second half was a much different story from Denver's perspective as they opened the third quarter on an 8-3 run to make it a one-possession game. Denver missed eight free throws.

Conversely, San Antonio has an advantage on the wings with Gay and DeRozan both experienced and consistent against a trio rotation of Gary Harris, Malik Beasley, and Will Barton.

San Antonio: The Spurs have won five of six playoff series against the Nuggets with their only series defeat coming in 1985.

Timberwolves: Minnesota played without starters Karl Anthony-Towns (right knee), Jeff Teague (left foot) and Robert Covington (right knee) and key reserves Taj Gibson (left calf) and Derrick Rose (right elbow).

White also provided the play of the game with his posterization of Nuggets big man Paul Millsap. Popovich was ejected 63 seconds into the game but it's a good bet he'll stick around for these games. They will need to continue playing well defensively if they want to go to San Antonio with a 2-0 lead.

The Denver Nuggets were hardly a trendy pick to be a top-three team in the Western Conference. Game Two against the Spurs will not be until Tuesday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver. "They have the best record at home, and they play really well together".

Gobert had a super efficient (8-of-10 shooting) double-double of 22 points and 12 rebounds, but the same can't be said for Mitchell, who put up 19 on 7-of-18 shooting from the field (38.9 percent) while recording zero assists. The Utah Jazz are averaging 90 points on 39 percent shooting and allowing 122 points on 50.5 percent shooting.
