DeMar must continue to maintain an aggressive edge about his game, driving to the basket and getting to the free throw line to build some confidence by seeing the ball go through the net, picking his spots in the mid-range and knocking them down. At that point, it truly looked like the Spurs would take Game 2 and be up 2-0 heading back home to San Antonio, where they were 32-9 this season. While the Spurs were able to escape with a win, the team has to be able to depend on DeRozan in crunch time or their stay in the playoffs will be a short-lived one.

What did it mean to him?

It took a massive second-half rally, but the Denver Nuggets are back on even footing in their first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs. The two Spurs All-Stars combined for just 33 points on 12-of-36 shooting from the field, while DeRozan committed four turnovers.

"We didn't let Jokic play as he wanted and they didn't let LaMarcus play as much as he wanted", Popovich said. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 101 points on 48.2 percent shooting and allowing 96 points on 42 percent shooting.

"Both bigs kind of never really got comfortable down there". "You've got to be locked in all times and know that Bertans is a high 3-point shooter, so we have to locate him at all times".

When Stan Lee passed away late previous year , we wondered whether he'd make any other cameo appearances in the new Marvel movies. The real question is whether the film can beat the top dog, Avatar, which grossed $2.788 billion at the worldwide box office.

Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone felt bad for Will Barton after the home fans booed him in Game 2. "Every shot right now is like the end of the world".

Denver coach Mike Malone called for timeout with 5:45 remaining in the third quarter with his team trailing 73-57 and conjured up the LA Clippers pulling off their big comeback win against the Golden State Warriors to motivate his team. "Unfortunately, we didn't make them pay for double-teaming enough". "I think Nikola took on that challenge and did a hell of a job".

"It was great to see him make shots", Millsap said. So, that was the tough thing about it. I love his play-making.

Thanks to Murray, who not only waited until the end to get going in the game but was a late arrival in the postgame news conference. Finally, he found his touch, scoring 21 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter.

White stole the ball at midcourt from Jamal Murray with 1.3 seconds left after Aldridge sank a pair of free throws following his key defensive rebound of Murray's errant shot that would have given the Nuggets the lead with seven seconds left.

Game 2 is Tuesday night in Denver. On Tuesday evening, the outlook wasn't rosy for either player or team for much of the night but, just as Denver's offensive issues seemingly were on pace to sink their playoff hopes, Murray awakened, leading the Nuggets a 114-105 victory.
