Their first three seeding games have gone down to the wire, and the Silver and Black will be looking to improve to 3-1 in the bubble as they fight to keep their playoff streak alive. Unfortunately for San Antonio, their road to the postseason doesn’t get any easier, as their next opponent, the third-place Denver Nuggets are coming off of a win, sporting a 44-23 record.

Both squads are shorthanded, and the absence of each franchise’s second-leading scorer ought to ensure a strikingly different on-court product from their first meeting back in February. There will be an almost 40 point void to fill between the two teams with LaMarcus Aldridge and Jamal Murray sidelined, so what can we expect from the next men up?
