Match up a tale of two teams
The San Antonio Spurs have finally found their footing and their swagger with the return of the last seasons Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard who had 12 points and nine rebounds in his second game back, an 89-69 blowout victory over the Utah Jazz. The Nuggets, on the other hand, are now reeling from a blowout of their own. a 122-79 debacle at the hands of the Golden State Warriors.
“We didn’t compete. We looked like we were scared,” Nuggets Coach Brian Shaw said. “I’m trying to be guarded in what I’m saying because I don’t want to throw anybody under the bus, but I just don’t understand how as a team we can’t come out and compete when you’re playing the best team in the league.”
Tony Parker, who sat out against the Nuggets last go around, will be on the floor tonight facing Ty Lawson.
“We have a great opportunity,” guard Tony Parker said. “We have two big games on the road and then we have a lot of games at home. It would be nice to take all those games because we have some catching up to do.”
