Thanks to Damian Lillard, you might’ve forgotten that this game was even going on. However, the Nuggets dominated the Spurs 108-90. It was a complete team effort as the game was never really close.
All but one player on Denver with significant minutes shot over 50 percent from the field. While Paul Millsap didn’t shoot 50 percent, he still had a solid day, scoring 14 points and dishing out six assists.
Nikola Jokic once again looked like the best player on the court for the Nuggets. Every time he plays well, it completely surprises me. Jokic looks like a 50-year-old dad who looks like he used to be in shape but is now trying to get back into shape. Also, he runs like he’s starting to develop knee problems and shoots one of the ugliest jumpers in the league. All of the being said, it works… very well.
The Spurs once again had a terrible night shooting. DeMar DeRozan couldn’t get it going all night and it killed the Spurs. With the series heading back to San Antonio, he needs to get some open looks at the basket to see if he can get himself going.
