The Western Conference will see a fifth game of the first round in the playoffs as Denver Nuggets host San Antonio Spurs in the NBA on Tuesday.
Denver Nuggets were the second seed in the Western Conference but are having a tough series so far. The first round is tied at 2-2, and it is anybody’s game right now. The way they played in the last game was one of the better performances from the franchise. This is what is required in the post-season where you go on the road, and play like you can’t be touched with. The upcoming three games are crucial, and it will decide the fate of The Nuggets, in terms of the validity of them being an elite team or not.
However, San Antonio Spurs are going to be that easy to get past by. They have arguably the best coach in the history of sport in Gregg Popovich who has once again proven what he can truly do with players who were thought to be fringe. The franchise one of the most illustrious in the history of the NBA, and they have a tendency of being unbelievably strong in clutch situations. If there is a time to go out all out with guns blazing, it is nigh, and that is going to be the mindset of the players from this side.
