Notebook: Spurs 108, Nuggets 103


Tim Price, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Mar 27, 2014 12:12 AM - Updated Thu Mar 27, 2014 12:12 AM

THE FACT: The Denver Nuggets worked hard to avoid the inevitable, coming back from a 24-point deficit to make it a four-point game against the Spurs in the fourth quarter, yet their 108-103 loss at San Antonio on Wednesday officially eliminated them from the playoffs for the first time in 10 seasons.

THE LEAD: Tim Duncan was just a basket short of scoring his season high, but his 29 points and 13 rebounds were enough to lead the Spurs to their 15th straight win in a 108-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets at AT&T Center.

But the Spurs (55-16) allowed a 24-point lead to fall to four midway through the fourth quarter before hanging on against the short-handed Nuggets (32-40).

Denver got 25 points off the bench from Aaron Brooks, 24 points and 10 rebounds from Kenneth Faried and another double-double from Timofey Mozgov (14 points, 11 rebounds).

QUOTABLE: "In the second half it kind of changed. I think we were a little too unselfish. We moved the ball too much, which caused some turnovers that turned into points."
-- Tim Duncan

THE STAT: The Spurs were shooting 62 percent from the floor when they had their biggest lead of 24 points (74-50 with 7 ½ minutes left in the third quarter). But they went 14-for-41 the rest of the way (34 percent). San Antonio missed Danny Green, who hit five of his first seven 3-pointers until he left the game in the final minute of the third quarter with what was initially diagnosed as a right mid-foot sprain. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich: "All of a sudden, he couldn't walk. The bottom of the foot, there's something. They're going to X-ray it."

TURNING POINT: The Spurs led by as much as 24 points midway through the third quarter until Denver trimmed it to 90-86 with 3 1/2 minutes to go. Still in a two-possession game with 1 ½ minutes to go, Randy Foye got past Spurs defender Kawhi Leonard and was driving the lane. Leonard reached back and blocked Foye's layup, and the Spurs went up by eight with 30 seconds left on Duncan's layup.

QUOTABLE II: "Ten more games. Training camp started for us now. It's about playing hard and developing chemistry like the Spurs."
-- Aaron Brooks

HOT: Faried keyed the Denver comeback. He was 4-for-6 from the floor and 7-for-8 from the foul line in the fourth quarter.

NOT: Duncan was 4-for-6 from the floor in the final quarter; the rest of the Spurs went 5-for-15.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Duncan is closing in on 800 career double-doubles (796). It's his first in four games.

INSIDE THE ARENA: The PGA Tour tees off at the Valero Texas Open on Thursday at nearby TPC San Antonio. Some of the players in the field attended the game, including defending champ Martin Laird.

GOOD MOVE: The Nuggets were short-handed (nine on active roster), and they decided not to put Mozgov on defense against Duncan. They kept him on the bench in crunch time -- he did not play in the fourth quarter -- and the Spurs worked the ball inside to Duncan and Tiago Splitter. Those two went a combined 6-for-8 with Faried doing his best to defend inside.

BAD MOVE: The Nuggets had all the momentum when Faried scored on a 3-point play to cut it to the four-point game with 6:18 left in the game. Yet the Nuggets were unable to match Tony Parker, who hit a 14-footer while being fouled by Ty Lawson. Nuggets coach Brian Shaw picked up a technical foul, and Parker hit his and-one foul shot and the free throw on the technical for a four-point play that doubled the Spurs' lead at a critical stage.

NOTABLE: San Antonio is two wins short of a team-record 17 consecutive wins (1995-96). ... The Nuggets went another game without Wilson Chandler (past four games missed with a hip injury) and Jan Vesely (two games with bruised ribs); they're status is day-to-day. ... The Spurs' Matt Bonner missed his third straight game with a right calf strain, and the team announced prior to the game that Bonner will miss an additional two weeks after viewing results of an MRI.

UP NEXT: For the Nuggets, Friday vs. San Antonio, Monday vs. Memphis, Wednesday vs. New Orleans. For the Spurs, Friday @ Denver, Saturday vs. New Orleans, Monday @ Indiana.
