The San Antonio Spurs - who have won the last 6 out of 7 games

faced the Denver Nuggets in a road game hoping to move the magic number from 2 to 1.

The Nuggets were a huge point favorite (+7), and the Spurs had a huge piece of the puzzle out,

missing Dejounte Murray due to an upper respiratory illness.The Nuggets have won the last 5 out of 7 games,

and with Jokic’ consistent outstanding performances lately, this was a game that easily could have went in the Nuggets favor.

However, despite being without Murray, the Spurs pulled off an incredible performance against Jokic

and the rest of the Nuggets squad. The Spurs pulled off an impressive win this evening,

playing well on both sides of the floor, beating the Nuggets 116-97.

The Spurs now have 5 road wins in a row, and are 1 game away from clinching the 10th spot.

High Scorers: Devin Vassell- 20 pts, Keldon Johnson- 20 pts, Josh Richardson- 18 pts, Tre Jones - 14 pts, Jakob Poeltl- 14 pts, Zach Collins- 14 pts.
