"We got Game 1". The Nuggets are 54-29 on the season, 34-8 at home, 42-41 against the spread and 48-34-1 with the under. In truth, though, his turnaround may have started at the end of the third quarter, when he got to the free throw line and finally saw the ball go through the net. The series is now tied at one game apiece.

What did it mean to him?

The San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets meet Tuesday in game two of the NBA Western Conference playoffs at the Pepsi Center. The veteran forward scored 11 of the first 17 points for the Nuggets and, without his contributions, the home team would have been in significant trouble.

Denver: Millsap added 20 points for Denver and Jokic just missed his second triple-double of the series, scoring 21 points, pulling down 13 rebounds and dishing out eight assists. Nuggets fans getting on Barton's case in Game 2 won't help him improve as the series wears on. "You've got to be locked in all times and know that Bertans is a high 3-point shooter, so we have to locate him at all times". "We did a good job of just trying to mix it up on him".

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he never considered benching Murray because he didn't want to crush his confidence. "Every shot right now is like the end of the world". Even if his shot continues to struggle, DeMar still has the ability to create offense for other players with crafty passes and effectively operating in the pick-and-roll. "Unfortunately, we didn't make them pay for double-teaming enough".

The personification of the Nuggets' comeback was Jamal Murray, who was 0 for 8 from the field entering the fourth quarter, then ripped off eight straight baskets to pull the Nuggets well ahead in the final minutes of the game. I think that will allow them to keep most of the games in this series pretty competitive. But if you stay down, he can still rise up and make it because he's really good in those areas. So, that was the tough thing about it. I love the game with a passion. The way I played.

"We gave up 38 points (actually, 39) in the fourth quarter". Jamal Murray is the third double-digit scorer and Paul Millsap is grabbing four rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets were upset by the Spurs in Game 1, but also found their footing in Game 2.

It was looking very much like an easy win for San Antonio, which frittered away two 19-point leads.

Rudy Gay scored five points on 2-of-9 shooting in San Antonio's loss. "For somebody who got put in that position and to learn that position with a bunch of new players, it's really remarkable what he's done".

"He was so frustrated at halftime, not making shots, shots that he's made his whole career", Malone said.
