Giants of the Western Conference will face off as Denver Nuggets host San Antonio Spurs in what will be the second game of the first round in the playoffs on Tuesday.
Denver Nuggets were the second seed in the regular season and they have proven to be a pillar of consistency. The team lost the first game in the playoffs and that too at their home court which is at a high altitude. In fact, they need to win this game or else an uphill task will be bestowing them. It is high time for the Nuggets to realise the potential they have, and start acting on it as well.
Meanwhile, San Antonio Spurs is one of the most successful teams in the NBA, and with a legendary coach in Gregg Popovich, this team is capable of beating anyone. They do lack some star power in the roster, but given their heritage, the team is known to a lot better in the playoffs. The franchise already made a statement by winning the first game and will be looking to follow that precedence.
