Nuggets beat Spurs 117-103 to tie series at 2-2


They were really outplayed all night, but stretches of that Nuggets talent and explosive nature kept it close through three quarters. The guard racked up 19 points, five rebounds and five assists in 34 minutes of action.

Rudy Gay came off the bench to finish with 11 points and 10 rebounds, and Jakob Poeltl and Bryn Forbes added 10 points each in the win.

"It was poor. Overall, the Nuggets competed and we did not", said Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 41.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47 rebounds per game. Because if you think about the last seven years that's going to overwhelm you. But by the end of the night, the team was in disarray, as the Nuggets pulled away in the second half to win 117-103 and tie the series at 2-2. Barton finished with 12 points and made all three of his 3-point attempts.

They need more from Paul Millsap and Gary Harris, who both struggled from the field in Game 4.

Two hours and 57 minutes before Game 4, Isaiah Thomas was on the court at AT&T Center, running through his familiar shooting routine with a Nuggets assistant. The Denver Nuggets have won eight of their last 10 home games. The Spurs are now 50-35 on the season, 33-9 at home, 45-38-2 against the spread and 45-39-1 with the over.

Denver's Game 4 victory was truly a collective effort, but its star players were at the center of its success.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Manchester City game ‘perfect’ after Everton loss
Ahead of the game, we take a look at why Manchester City should be able to pick up the three points against their neighbours. They are not going to allow us easy counter attacking because there will be fouls, I have absolutely no doubt about it.

In Salt Lake City, James Harden overcome a terrible shooting performance and scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter, leading Houston past the Jazz for a commanding 3-0 lead in their playoff series. As a No. 7 seed, the Spurs have a legitimate chance to knock off the No. 2 seed Nuggets.

The Spurs have posted a 17-26 on the road this season including playoffs.

The Nuggets led 71-69 with 6:24 to play in the third quarter before scoring 20 of the period's final 30 points to assume a 91-79 advantage heading into the final frame. The Spurs have led after the first quarter in every game this series.

The Nuggets were more aggressive and physical after a deflating Game 3 loss, which was expected. For the most part, the Spurs have controlled the tempo and have to like where they're at with things. From there, the Nuggets did not look back as the defense stepped up and the adjustments by Malone proved to be too much for the Spurs to counter.

With that I give you the good, great and awesome.
