Spurs can't get caught up in Nuggets crowd - DeRozan issues warning ahead of Game 7

DeMar DeRozan warned the San Antonio Spurs cannot "get caught up in the crowd" in a winner-takes-all Game 7 in their playoff series against the Denver Nuggets.

Four-time NBA All-Star DeRozan was in sensational form as the Spurs ran out 120-103 victors at the AT&T Center on Thursday to tie things up at 3-3.

DeRozan finished with 25 points, seven assists and seven rebounds, scoring 12 of those in the third quarter and adding another six in the last.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone was less than impressed with a screen from Jakob Poeltl on Jamal Murray in the third quarter, in which he caught his opponent's thigh with his left knee.

On three occasions during the series, Poeltl has made contact with an opposition player with his roving screens and Malone questioned why fouls are not being called.

"I think there have been some illegal screens that have been missed, and the response from the league [after the Nuggets submitted the plays for review] has been that we're right," Malone said.
