You know you’re struggling for NBA relevance when the most memorable part of your season thus far is the controversy generated from the release of a disgruntled former coach’s book, as is the case with the lowly Denver Nuggets. The Spurs are no strangers to flying under the radar, but remain on the opposite end of the spectrum when it comes to success on the court. San Antonio’s recent stretch of wins has showcased the most efficient offense and defense in the league, outscoring opponents by almost 23 points. Five-time All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge has picked up the slack on the offensive end of the floor, as role players like Davis Bertans and Jonathon Simmons continue to make contributions off the bench. Expect a frantic pace from the Nuggets, as they attempt to counter their current slide.
