  • Gregg Popovich achieves coaching milestone in Spurs victory

With Saturday's 101-96 victory in Denver as San Antonio made its 22nd straight postseason appearance, the Spurs coach won his 1,413th game between the regular season and playoffs to become the winningest coach in National Basketball Association history. He still managed to get a triple-double, but it's tough to slow a big guy like that down.

The Nuggets (54-28) will play the San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the playoffs.

They had the ball with 13 seconds left trailing 97-96 but Murray's shot was off - as it was all night - and Aldridge, who shot just 6 of 19 himself, corralled the rebound, then sank two free throws to make it 99-96 with 6.9 seconds remaining.

It says something about Murray's maturation and determination for him to be getting shots up immediately following a loss. But he was hesitant on offense all night, taking just nine shots and making four of them.

Gary Harris led the Nuggets with 20 points and Murray scored 17.

Game 2 is Tuesday night in Denver. As Denver's Jamal Murray took the ball upcourt on the ensuing possession, looking for a potential game-tying three, Derrick White made the biggest defensive play of the game, stealing the ball away and drawing a foul to secure the upset.

The sellout crowd at the Pepsi Center, where the Nuggets went 34-7 for the best home record in the league, certainly wanted Jokic to take more shots.

"He's spectacular for somebody who got put into that position", Popovich said. "So hopefully he'll continue to play that way because it's gonna be a long series".

Asked what adjustments he had in mind for Game 2, Malone said simply, "Make shots". As NBA.com's Scott Rafferty noted in his series preview, "of the five players who led the [Nuggets] in minutes, Paul Millsap is the only one who has been in the playoffs before (87 career games)". They joined the Nets, who won at Philadelphia, and Magic, who won at Toronto.
