The winner will face Portland.Jamal Murray added 16 points and Gary Harris had 14 points for the Nuggets.The Spurs were 4 for 9 on 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to overcome Jokic’s output.San Antonio needed the win to continue the series after a listless performance in a 108-90 loss in Denver on Tuesday in which the Nuggets led by as many as 30 points.Still, the Spurs had another hot start nullified by a better second quarter by the Nuggets.San Antonio surged to a 34-24 lead by shooting 67 percent from the field in the first quarter while Denver missed all seven of its 3-point attempts.DeRozan and Aldridge had a hand in the Spurs’ first 10 points, combining for six points and four assists.

The Nuggets’ lone series win over the Spurs came in the opening round of the 1985 playoffs. … It was Popovich’s 283rd postseason game, moving him past Pat Riley for second-most playoff games coached. Former Bulls, and Lakers coach Phil Jackson tops the list with 333 career postseason games coached. … San Antonio surpassed 40,000 postseason points in franchise history, joining the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers as the only franchises to surpass that figure.NO FREE LUNCHESIf not for a free meal, Popovich might not be facing such a tough test from Denver coach Michael Malone and the Nuggets.Malone and Popovich formed a friendship in 2005 while working together for a week during the NBA’s ”Basketball without Borders” in Argentina. Malone was looking for a job in the NBA at the time and Popovich took it upon himself to recommend Malone to Mike Brown when the former Spurs assistant was head coach in Cleveland.Considering Malone had never worked for Popovich, what made Popovich vouch for the then young assistant, who was hired by Brown.”He bought my lunch in Argentina,” Popovich said dryly. ”No, he’s a genuine guy. He doesn’t try to pull the wool over everybody’s eyes. He doesn’t try to play an image, he’s Mikey, and he loves basketball. He’s a hard worker. I could tell a long time ago that he understood the game. He understood what won and lost. He’s got a personality where he’s got a sense of humor, but at the same time he’s got the fiber to make demands and hold people accountable. It was pretty apparent that he was going to have a career in this league. He just needed a start some place so I was happy to help him.”Credit:NBA.comlast_img read more
