Coming off of a tough loss to the Clippers at home Friday, the San Antonio Spurs chance to break their losing streak came on the road against the Denver Nuggets — a team so comfortably in their element that they seemingly went the whole first quarter without missing a basket. They routed the Spurs 126-101, despite great performances from Keldon Johnson and Devin Vassell. Keldon finished with 25 points, four assists, and three rebounds. Devin had 20 points, four rebounds, and four assists in 25 restricted minutes off the bench. The sharpshooters drained four three-pointers each as well.

Jakob Poeltl scored in double figures with 14 points and grabbed four rebounds all in the first half! He ended up with eight rebounds in total and two of his 14 points came off of this easy slam. Tre Jones, who finished with four points and seven assists, found Poeltl under the basket. What a pass!
