San Antonio Spurs

Spurs-Nuggets matchup could be playoff preview

The Nuggets are one of the best in the West but they are coming off a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans at home Saturday night, 120-112.

After a mid-season lull, they have really picked up the defense especially on this homestand holding Detroit to 93 points and OKC to 102, not to mention keeping Russell Westbrook in check not allowing him to get a triple-double.

One of the moves that has made a difference is inserting Jakob Poeltl into the starting lineup.

Eventhough it is different being a starter, Poeltl is trying to just keep playing his game.

“I’m trying to like keep doing the same stuff I do and I do well still when LA (LaMarcus Aldridge) is still on the court," Poeltl said.

“I love Jakob, he is a great guy he does all the dirty jobs,” said Belineli.
