It’s time for San Antonio Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets

The Spurs try to bounce back after the tough loss in virtual Philly

Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.

The Spurs did an amazing job on Monday night, erasing a double digit lead to pull ahead of the Sixers late, but missed free throws and late defensive errors gave the talented Sixers just enough to an opportunity to pull out a late win and give the Spurs their first loss in the Orlando bubble.

The Spurs are back in the friendly confines of virtual San Antonio for a home game against the Nuggets, and this might be their toughest test yet in the bubble. The Spurs frontcourt will be once again tested, as Jakob Poeltl has to take on Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap. The Spurs need to pick up every win they can to be in a position to gain a playoff spot, and winning today will have them in line for the 9th place play-in series. This will be a difficult test for the Silver and Black, so let’s all gather around the TV sets and computer screens and cheer the good guys to a win. Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
